The papers in this special section focus on computational intelligence for software engineering and services computing. Recently, there has been an increasing demand for complex systems in distributed and mobile environments. The development of these complex software systems is challenging, especially while dealing with dynamic, imprecise and uncertain information and environments. In the recent years, an emerging paradigm is to focus on the investigation and integration of computational intelligence tools into current software development practices to address the growing complexity of software systems and improving their robustness. This emerging paradigm uses various techniques from the computational intelligence literature (e.g., knowledge-transfer and data-driven search, fuzzy logic, machine learning, evolutionary computation, etc.) to address problems related to requirements engineering, services computing, cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), quality of services, software testing, model-driven engineering, etc.
