Journal of Artificial Evolution and Applications

Dear researcher,

Let me introduce you to a new publication.

Journal of Artificial Evolution and Applications aims at being a reference for all researchers and practitioners who study the theory and application of methodologies pertaining to Evolutionary Computation and related fields.

Original contributions are sought describing recent achievements in Evolutionary Computation research, with particular, but not exclusive, regard to:

Genetic Algorithms
Genetic Programming
Evolutionary Programming
Evolution Strategies
Swarm Intelligence
Learning Classifier Systems
Artificial Immune Systems
Interactive Evolution
Evolvable Hardware
Hybrid approaches relying on the joint use of Evolutionary Computation methods and other Computational Intelligence and optimization methods

Previously unpublished reports on applications of Evolutionary Computation techniques to problems of industrial, technological and social relevance are particularly solicited, including, but not limited to:

Combinatorial and Stochastic Optimization of Industrial Processes
Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering
Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition
Communication and Networking Technologies
Transportation and Logistics

In-depth reviews of the state of the art in any of the theoretical or application fields listed above are also accepted.

The web site of the Journal is now open at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jaea .
I warmly invite you to visit the site for further details on the journal.

As regards the Open Access policy of the Journal (free online access to the full text of papers paid for by contribution of authors of published contributions), the publisher has decided to apply the following fees for 2007:

FREE publication of all accepted papers submitted by July 31

For all accepted papers submitted from August to December 2007:
	- Free publication of the first 6 pages
	- 100 Euros fee per extra page

As regards submission of contributions, it is now open. I am obviously asking you to consider submitting your work to the Journal and to publicize it with your colleagues and collaborators.

As regards the editorial policy, my aim is to keep the journal as 'orthogonal' to the other journals in the field of Evolutionary Computation as possible by:

- focusing mainly on applications, which should favour interdisciplinary research and participation of members of other communities than Evolutionary Computation.

- organizing special issues, which would allow the journal to be the source for the most up-to-date contributions on the corresponding themes, also thanks to the Open Access editorial policy, which allows papers to be available online to everybody as soon as they are accepted. 

I look forward to receiving your submissions

Stefano Cagnoni
