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'19) 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: 1865:0929. 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. The Communications in Computer and Information Science Series(CCIS) is listed in UGC-CARE List Group A (Scopus Source List).

SoMMA 2019 is co-affiliated with the International Conference on Applied Soft computing and Communication Networks (ACN'19), December 18-21, 2019, Trivandrum, India . The Conference will feature few independent symposiums, plenary/keynote talks, workshops, demonstrations, parallel technical sessions and tutorials.

The symposium will be held at Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management-Kerala (IIITM-K), Trivandrum, India during December 18-21, 2019. Kerala renowned as the “Gods own Country”, situated in the southwestern tip of India, bestowed with unique geographical features that have made it one of the most attractive tourist destinations in India. Besides its famous languid network of back-waters, sprawling beaches, paddy fields, coconut groves, tea plantations and elegant house-boats, Kerala is well-known for its delicately spiced, taste-buds tingling cuisines. The state blessed with a serene climate and lush greenery is home to wild elephants, exotic birds and odd tigers. The land is also famous for its cultural heritage, traditional festivals and snake-boat races. Moreover, Kerala is one of the best Ayurveda tourism destinations in India.
