ICHSA 2020: 6th International Conference on Harmony Search, Soft Computing and Applications
6th International Conference on Harmony Search, Soft Computing and Applications to be held in İstanbul, Turkey, April 22-24, 2020. ICHSA 2020 is organized under the auspices of the İstanbul University-Cerrahpaşa. Symposium will focus in all aspects of Harmony Search (HS) and other soft computing techniques. HS is one of the most popular metaheuristic algorithms, developed in 2001 by Prof. Joong Hoon Kim and Prof. Zong Woo Geem, that mimicks the improvisation process of jazz musicians to seek the best harmony. The application to diverse science and engineering problems are accepted from all disciplines and it must be noted that all soft computing methods different from HS are welcomed.
Papers presented in ICHSA 2020 which are focused on structural mechanics studies, will be considered for publication in Challenge Journal of Structural Mechanics. Authors may submit their full length papers via online submission system or send to firstname.lastname@example.org via e-mail. Regarding to the count and the diversity of the studies, papers will be published in a special issue or in the regular issues in an appropriate calendar.
