Special Session on Evolutionary Computation on Filtering, Modeling and Data Assimilation

Aim and Scope:

Recently with the development of IoT and high-performance computing, the importance of cyber-physical systems that connect the real and a virtual world is increasing. For example, Society 5.0 where a problem solving through a connection between cyber and physical spaces is introduced is  
promoted as a key concept for the future in Japan. While system modeling, signal processing, and filtering are the fundamental techniques in the field so far and its importance is continued. However, it has been required that the system should have the adaptability to nonlinearity, time-varying environment and so on, an evolutionary approach will be a successful methodology in this fields.
In this session, we will discuss an applicability and a contribution of evolutionary computations to this research fields including cyber-physical systems, agent-based simulation, and conventional control system engineering. The session promotes the theoretical discussion on applications of evolutionary computation to control, modeling and filtering for dynamical systems and cyber-physical systems, developments of novel filtering algorithm using evolutionary computation, and data assimilation methods for simulation studies. The design of the experiment is also important for these areas since to select suitable tactics it requires hypotheses that need a huge number of try and error experiments or simulation run.
Authors are invited to submit their original work including the following (but not limited to) issues:
  - Evolutionary Particle Filters
  - Data Assimilation and Relative Methods by Evolutionary Computation
  - Evolutionary Computation for Simulation Model Design
  - Design of Experiments with Evolutionary Computation
  - Evolutionary Approaches to Faults Detection and Diagnosis
  - Evolutionary System Identification
