CFP: EvoIASP2008: Extended deadline November 11!
CALL FOR PAPERS EvoIASP2008 Tenth European Workshop on Evolutionary Computation in Image Analysis and Signal Processing part of EvoWorkshops2008 incorporated in Evo* 2008 Napoli, Italy, 26-28 March 2008 ********** NB DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 11 ************** Evolutionary algorithms have been shown to be tools which can be used effectively in the development of systems (software or hardware) for image analysis and signal processing in complex domains of high industrial and social relevance. EvoIASP is the first European event specifically dedicated to the applications of evolutionary computation (EC) to image analysis and signal processing (IASP) and gives European and non-European researchers in those fields, as well as people from industry, an opportunity to present their latest research and to discuss current developments and applications, besides fostering closer future interaction between members of the three scientific communities. This year we are proudly reaching the TENTH EDITION of the workshop, the previous editions having been held in Gothenburg, Sweden (1999), Edinburgh, UK (2000), Como, Italy (2001), Kinsale, Ireland (2002), Colchester, UK (2003), Coimbra, Portugal (2004), Lausanne, Switzerland (2005), Budapest, Hungary (2006), and Valencia, Spain (2007). The workshop will be part of Evo* 2008, a joint event which will incorporate EuroGP 2008, the 11th European Conference on Genetic Programming, EvoCOP 2008, the 8th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimization, EvoBIO 2008, the 6th Conference on Evolutionary Bioinformatics, and EvoWorkshops 2008, a set of ten thematic workshops on applications of Evolutionary Computation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * applications of evolutionary computation to real-life IASP problems, * evolvable vision and signal processing hardware, * evolutionary pattern recognition, * hybrid architectures for machine vision and signal processing including evolutionary components, * theoretical developments, * comparisons between different evolutionary techniques and between evolutionary and non-evolutionary techniques in IASP applications, * time series analysis by means of EC techniques. Submissions Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS format (instructions are downloadable from http://www.springeronline.com/sgw/cda/frontpage/0,11855,5-164-2-72376-0,00.html) using the online submission service (http://evonet.lri.fr/EvoWorkshops08/) no later than November 1, 2007. The papers will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. Authors will be notified via email on the results of the review by December 15, 2007. The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts, along with text sources and pictures, by January 8, 2008. The accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, published in Springer LNCS Series, which will be available at the workshop. The authors of papers which receive the best reviews will be nominated for the 'Best paper Award'.
