CFP: EvoIASP2008: Extended deadline November 11!


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

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    * applications of evolutionary computation to real-life IASP 
    * 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 
    * time series analysis by means of EC techniques. 


Submit your  manuscript, at  most 10 A4  pages long, in  Springer LNCS
format        (instructions        are        downloadable        from,11855,5-164-2-72376-0,00.html)
using          the          online         submission          service
(  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'.
