Nature, an everlasting source of inspiration, has been very successful in solving complex problems. The urge of living organisms toward survival often drives the emergence of intelligent behaviors which motivates the theory, design and application of Computational Intelligence (CI) paradigms e.g., Swarm Intelligence (SI). The mimicking of nature provides (alternative) solution techniques to problems that were not (satisfactorily) resolved by other traditional techniques. These new techniques are being applied successfully to a variety of scientific and engineering dynamic problems.
