Swarm intelligence is a computational intelligence technique to solve complex real-world problems. It involves the study of collective behaviour of individuals in a population who interact locally with one another and with their environment in a decentralised control system. IJSI is a peer-reviewed international publication dedicated to reporting research and new developments in the multidisciplinary field of swarm intelligence.


 Topics covered include

  • Particle swarm optimisation
  • Artificial bees and fireflies algorithm
  • Bacterial foraging optimisation
  • Ant colony optimisation
  • Swarm robotics
  • Artificial immune systems
  • Glow worm swarm optimisation
  • Hybridisation of swarm intelligence methods
  • Numerical algorithms formulation and analysis
  • Review and comparative studies of swarm intelligence techniques
  • New methodologies inspired from learning behaviour of social insects
  • Theory and practice of swarm intelligence methods in different domains
  • Real-world problem solving using swarm intelligence methods

More on this journal...

IJSI serves as a forum for facilitating and enhancing information-sharing among swarm intelligence researchers in the field, ranging from algorithm developments to real-world applications. Targeting researchers, academicians, students and engineers, this journal provides innovative findings in swarm intelligence, computational intelligence and their applications.


IJSI is aimed at professionals, academics, students, researchers and policy makers who are interested in the potential of swarm intelligence based techniques for solving problems. In particular, this includes people with background in computer science, mathematics, engineering and quantitative management science. IJSI may serve as a reference title for the courses like soft computing, computational intelligence or swarm intelligence.


IJSI publishes all types of original research work such as papers, review papers, technical reports, conference papers (if substantially extended) and book reviews which have not been published elsewhere. Special Issues devoted to important topics in computational intelligence will occasionally be published.
