This booklet constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the sixth overseas Workshop on Ant Colony Optimization and Swarm Intelligence, ANTS 2008, held in Brussels, Belgium, in September 2008.

The 17 revised complete papers, 24 revised brief papers, and 10 prolonged abstracts offered have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from ninety one submissions. The papers conceal theoretical and foundational elements of computational intelligence and comparable disciplines with precise specialise in swarm intelligence and are dedicated to behavioral versions of social bugs and new algorithmic methods, empirical and theoretical examine in swarm intelligence, functions corresponding to ant colony optimization or particle swarm optimization, and theoretical and experimental study in swarm robotics systems.

Algorithmic Game Theory: 6th International Symposium, SAGT 2013, Aachen, Germany, October 21-23, 2013. Proceedings

This ebook constitutes the complaints of the sixth foreign Symposium on Algorithmic video game conception, SAGT 2013, held in Aachen, Germany, in October 2013. The 25 papers provided during this quantity have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from sixty five submissions. They disguise a number of vital elements of algorithmic video game thought, akin to answer techniques in video game conception, potency of equilibria and the cost of anarchy, computational points of equilibria and video game theoretical measures, repeated video games and convergence of dynamics, evolution and studying in video games, coordination and collective motion, community video games and graph-theoretic facets of social networks, balloting and social selection, in addition to algorithmic mechanism layout.

Example text

The parameter α is fixed at 1 and β is tested at 0, 1, and 2. When β equals 0, the expert knowledge weighting factor becomes 1 and does not affect the updating of the pheromone, thus it is possible to examine the impact of expert knowledge on the ant colony optimization approach in this domain. 5.

For example, for n/pi = 3/7 the ratios were 88/10, 145/13, and 98/12 (see Table 2). Due to these facts, we set as a goal to obtain with the ACO algorithm, at least, a compound rule base with the same interpretability than the automated generated one. 1 Original Method Regarding the original ACO algorithm ‘AS’, it can be observed that, although it achieves rule bases with better interpretability than the initial set of single rules, it did not reach our goal of finding solutions, on average, as interpretable as the automatically generated rule bases in all the cases.

Blum, and G. Franc`es broadcasting. In this work we study this problem for two cases. In the first one, each network node is equipped with an omni-directional antenna. However, omni-directional antennas often waste energy, for example, when information must only be sent to one neighboring node. Therefore, we also study the case of directional antennas, which additionally provide the advantage of reducing the interference with other nodes due to the reduced submission area. As most other works in this area we consider the following wireless communication model (see [1]).
