(1a Giornata di Studio Italiana sul Calcolo Evoluzionistico GSICE05) 

A Satellite  Workshop of the  9th Congress of the  Italian Association
for Artificial Intelligence

University of Milan Bicocca 
20 september 2005



Evolutionary  computation  (EC)   has  been  the  fastest-growing  and
probably  most  active  sub-field   of  soft  computing  in  the  last

Despite a significant presence  of Italian researchers in European and
International  research  projects  and  conferences on  EC,  no  event
dedicated to the general field of EC has ever been organized in Italy,
except  for  a few  workshops  on  specific  sub-topics. 

Organizing  a  satellite  workshop  of  the Congress  of  the  Italian
Association for Artificial  Intelligence (AI*IA), whose attendance has
been spreading through the  years well beyond the national boundaries,
is  an excellent  opportunity  to start  what  we hope  will become  a
traditional appointment in the EC calendar.

Despite the  workshop focus  on national activity,  contributions from
researchers   from   any  country   are   welcome:   science  has   no

The  principal aims  with which  this  first event  is organized  are:

- establishing a meeting point where Italian researchers are given the
  opportunity  to   exchange  ideas,   among  one  another   and  with
  researchers from other countries

- starting  a series  of events  to be  held yearly  in Italy  

- to make industry aware  of the potential of evolutionary computation
  methods  in  developing  real-world  applications 

- to  encourage  the   participation  of  undergraduate  and  graduate
  students, and to increase the number of researchers in the fields by
  attracting young researchers towards evolutionary computation

The expected  audience will therefore  be composed of  researchers and
students  who  are   already  working  in  the  field,   but  also  of
representatives  of  industry  and  everybody  who  is  interested  in
approaching evolutionary  computation from the  point of view  of both
basic research and applications. 


Two  types  of contributions  are  solicited:  

- Tutorials  on  different sub-topics  and  fields  of application  of
  evolutionary computation

- Papers reporting original research  results on topics which include,
  but  are  not  limited  to:  

       -  Evolutionary computation theory  
       -  Real-world applications 
       -  Comparison between results of evolutionary methods and the 
          state of the art in  different application fields 
       -  Hybrid evolutionary/non-evolutionary methods

Tutorial proposals  must not exceed 4 A4  pages (single-column, single
spacing,  10  pt  font  size)   and  must  be  submitted  by  20  June
2005. Papers must not  exceed 10 A4 pages, in  Springer LNCS format or
equivalent               (see,               for              example,
and  must be  submitted  by 27  June  2005. 

Contributions must  be in English and  must be submitted  by email, in
Postscript or pdf format,  to the address gsice2005 at ce.unipr.it by the
proper deadlines.  Accepted contributions will be published in the CD,
officially ISBN-catalogued, which will  include the proceedings of all
satellite workshops of the Congress.
