The machine learning techniques allow machines to establish rules from automatically analyzing data and using them to predict unknown data. The Industry 4.0 is expected to benefit from ML methodologies in several ways. Metaheuristics are widely recognized as efficient approaches for many hard optimization problems. A wide range of metaheuristic algorithms have emerged over the last two decades. The Symposium on Machine Learning and Metaheuristics Algorithms, and Applications (SoMMA'20) aims to provide a forum for scientists and researchers to present their latest results and a means to discuss the recent developments in machine learning, metaheuristics and their applications. The technical program of the symposium will include tutorials, regular technical sessions, workshops, special sessions, demos and plenary/keynote speeches.

All accepted papers will be published by Springer in Communications in Computer and Information Science Series(CCIS), ISSN: 2065:0929. The proceedings will be available via the SpringerLink digital library. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago and Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings.

Authors of the best papers of SoMMA'20 will be invited to submit extended version of their manuscripts to the Special Issue on: "Intelligent Embedded Systems" in the International Journal of Embedded Systems, Inderscience Publishers (Indexed in Scopus, Emerging Sources Citation Index, DBLP etc..)
