AISB event Bulletin Item

CfP: EvoHOT 2009 *** NEW DEADLINE: 30-NOV ***

Due to a number of requests by individual authors for a further 
deadline extension, we have decided to grant an extension of the 
submission deadline for all the Evo* 2009 events to 

*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+ 30 NOVEMBER 2008 *+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+*+


Dear Colleague:

We would like to invite you to submit a paper to EvoHOT 2009, the 5th
European Workshop on Hardware Optimization Techniques.

EvoHOT focuses on innovative heuristics, game theory and bio-inspired
techniques (eg. EA, SA, AIS, NN, ants) applied to the Electronic
Design Automation.

The workshop goal is to show the latest developments; industrial
experiences; successful attempts to /evolve/ rather than /design/ new
solutions; hybridizations of traditional methodologies.

EvoHOT topics include, but are not limited to:
 * Analog circuit design
 * Automatic test pattern generation
 * Built-in self test
 * Evolutionary design of electronic circuits
 * Evolutionary hardware design methodologies
 * Evolutionary robotics
 * Evolvable hardware
 * Floorplanning
 * Hardware/Software co-design
 * Hybrid evolutionary/exact approach
 * Hardware accelerated methodologies
 * Logic synthesis
 * Routing
 * Test program generation

Submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines and
must not be longer than 10 pages. 

EvoHOT is part of EvoStar (Evo*), Europe premier event in the field of
evolutionary computing. EvoStar incorporates 3 conferences and 12
workshops; its proceedings are published by Springer in the LNCS
series. The 2009 event will take place in Tubingen (Germany) on April
15-17 2009.

Important dates common to all events:
* Submission deadline: *** 30 November 2008 *** (EXTENDED!)
* Notification to authors: 9 January 2009
* Camera-ready deadline: 28 January 2009
* Conference: 15-17 April 2009

The website offers updated
information about EvoHOT and all other EvoStar events, including call for
papers, organising committees and detailed submission requirements.

Thanks for your patience and interest
Rolf Drechsler & Giovanni Squillero (EvoHOT chairs)
