EvoApp:2010 Extended Deadline

http://www.secamlocal.ex.ac.uk/people/staff/eckeedwe/EvoApp/

*EVOAPP:2010 SYMPOSIUM DEADLINE EXTENDED TO WEDNESDAY 20TH JANUARY*


  CALL FOR PAPERS: EVOLUTIONARY ALGORITHMS AND APPLICATIONS @ AISB 2010

http://www.secamlocal.ex.ac.uk/people/staff/eckeedwe/EvoApp/ 

Evolutionary computing is now one of the most widely applied AI-based search and optimisation techniques having found applications in areas as diverse as engineering, bioinformatics, robotics and operations research amongst many others. In many of these areas evolutionary computing techniques are able to find near-optimal solutions to problems that could not be found by traditional methods. Research in applied evolutionary algorithms involves the creation of new algorithms, representations, operators and objective functions to find better solutions to large complex problems that provide real-world benefits to companies, the public sector and individuals.

This symposium aims to provide a forum for advances in theoretical and applied work in the field of evolutionary computation.


  *Call for Papers *

Submissions are invited from all areas of evolutionary computing, broadly considered, and the applications thereof and techniques are expected to include (but are not limited to):

  * Genetic algorithms
  * Genetic programming
  * Evolutionary strategies
  * Multi-objective evolutionary algorithms
  * Simulated Annealing
  * Artificial Life and Cellular Automata
  * Genetics Based Machine Learning (GBML)
  * Classifier Systems
  * Genetic Fuzzy Systems

Submissions are particularly encouraged regarding real-world applications of evolutionary algorithms, especially those which have complex objective functions and therefore require novel methods of mitigating against that complexity.


  Important Dates

  * Paper Submission Deadline: *EXTENDED Wednesday 20th January 2010*
  * Notification of Acceptance: *Monday 8th February 2010*
  * Deadline for Camera-Ready Submission: *TBA*
  * Symposium Date: *29th March - 1st April 2010*


  Submission

We are inviting *full-paper submissions* (i.e. maximum 8 pages) on any of the topics above. If your submission is outside of these topics, then please e-mail one of the symposium chairs who will be able to advise you further.
