Innovative global optimization approaches have attracted many research scientists, decision makers, managers, executives, engineers, academicians, officers, policy makers and practicing researchers in recent years as powerful intelligent computational techniques for solving many complex real-world application problems.

The International Conference on Intelligent Computing and Optimization (ICO’2021) highlights the latest research innovations and applications of algorithms designed for optimization applications within the fields of Science, Computer Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Management, Finance, Business and Economics. Focusing on a variety of methods and systems as well as practical examples, this conference is a significant resource for post graduate-level students, decision makers, and researchers in both public and private sectors who are seeking research-based methods for modeling uncertain and unpredictable real-world problems.


All accepted and reviewed papers will be published by Springer and made available through Springer-Link Digital Library, one of the world’s largest scientific libraries.
