This paper investigates the advantages provided by a Meta-model Assisted Memetic Algorithm (MAMA) for the calibration of a Cellular Automata (CA) model. The proposed approach is based on the synergy between a global meta-model, based on a radial basis function network, and a local quadratic approximation of the fitness landscape. The calibration exercise presented here refers to SCIARA, a well-established CA for the simulation of lava flows. Compared with a standard Genetic Algorithm, the adopted MAMA provided much better results within the assigned computational budget.
