Third European Graduate Student Workshop on 
Evolutionary Computation

Naples, Italy, 26-28 March 2008

This is  the third European workshop on  evolutionary computation that
focuses on  work of PhD  students.  Its main  aim is to  give students
feedback on the current state  of their thesis. This workshop provides
a chance to  students to present their work to  a friendly audience of
other  students as  well as  experts in  the field.  It  also provides
students  with  contacts  and professional  networking  opportunities,
which helps them to integrate into the community.For you as a student,
the aim  of a submission  is to get  feedback on the current  state of
your thesis.

Submissions will  be evaluated by members of  a high-quality committee
that consists of  long running members of the  community with the goal
to provide in-depth feedback. You  are required to submit a paper that
summarizes  the  research  performed  and  planned  as  part  of  your
dissertation.The  number of participants  is limited.  Accepted papers
will not be published in a proceedings, but will be disseminated among
the participants of the event.The  workshop is part of Evo*2008, which
combined  form Europe's  premier  co-located events  in  the field  of
evolutionary  computing.  The  next   event  takes  place  in  Naples,
Italy. Featuring  the latest in theoretical and  applied research, the
topics include recent genetic programming challenges, evolutionary and
other   meta-heuristic  approaches  for   combinatorial  optimization,
evolutionary algorithms in the  biosciences, in music and art domains,
in  image   analysis  and  signal  processing   systems,  in  hardware
optimisation and  as applied  to a range  of industrial  and financial
optimisation problems.

Web address:

Topics include, but are not limited to,

* Any topic that fits in the scope of the conferences and workshops
* Bio-inspired computing,  such as evolutionary  computing, ant colony
  optimization, swarm intelligence, and neural networks
* Local optimisation methods (tabu search, simulated annealing)
* All  flavours  of  evolutionary  computation  (genetic  programming,
  evolution strategies, genetic algorithms, memetic algorithms, etc.)
* Combinatorial optimisation with bio-inspired computing
* Application of evolutionary computation to real-life problems
* Hybrid architectures that include bio-inspired components
* Theory on a relevant area of bio-inspired computing

Submission Information

The deadline for submission is                 22 December 2007.
Authors will be notified of acceptance on       1 February 2008.
Camera-ready version of accepted paper due on  29 February 2008.
