                         applications on several research fields. Despite the potential of 
                         a neural network model, its performance is dependent on the 
                         definition of the parameters, since the definition of architecture 
                         (topology) can significantly influence the training process. Here, 
                         a technique for automatic configuration for a neural network is 
                         described as an optimization problem combining two different 
                         optimization schemes: a mono-objective minimization problem using 
                         Multi-Particle Collision Algorithm (MPCA), and a multiobjective

                         (NSGA-II). The proposed optimization approaches were tested for 
                         the mesoscale seasonal climate prediction for precipitation. The 
                         meteorological data were processed by Rough Set Theory to extract
