The International Workshop on the Bees Algorithm and its Applications (BAA) 2023

Wednesday 15 November 2023 (09:50-15:00)

For further information, please email Natalia Hartono-

The International Workshop on the Bees Algorithm and its Applications (BAA) is an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and engineers to share the latest research results, ideas and developments relating to the popular bees-inspired optimisation technique and its applications.

The third BAA, to be held online on 15 November 2023, will focus on applications of the Bees Algorithm to problems in all engineering disciplines.

We invite presentations in all areas of engineering that use the Bees Algorithm, including but not limited to:

  • Bioengineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Informatics
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Operations Research

Authors of accepted papers will present their work on 15 November 2023 and answer questions from attendees. Selected papers will be published in a book after the Workshop.
