*** EvoPhD 2009 Submission Deadline Extension***
Due to numerous requests, we have decided to extend the
submission deadline for EvoPhD event to: 31 January 2009.
**************** CALL FOR PAPERS ****************
Fourth European Graduate Student Workshop on
Tübingen, Germany, 15-17 April 2009
This is the fourth 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 be published in a CD with ISSN 1974-4145, that will
be disseminated among the participants of the event.
The workshop is part of Evo*2009, which combined form
Europe's premier co-located events in the field of
evolutionary computing. The next event takes place in
Tübingen, Germany. 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.
Evo*2009 web address: http://evostar.na.icar.cnr.it/index.html
Topics include, but are not limited to,
* Any topic that fits in the scope of the conferences and
* Bio-inspired computing, such as evolutionary computing,
ant colony optimization, swarm intelligence, and neural
* 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
The deadline for submission has been extended to 31 January 2009.
The page limit is 14 A4 pages in Springer LCNS format.
Submissions should be e-mailed in PDF or gzipped postscript to
