First announcement on the Internet and call for papers for 
a new journal

  E V O L U T I O N A R Y      O P T I M I Z A T I O N

        An International Journal on the Internet

Archives Published by Polish Academy of Science,
Institute of Fundamental Technological Research

High quality research and survey papers are solicited,
covering the scope of the journal outlined below.

Aims and Scope:

The subject of Evolutionary Optimization has recently
experienced a remarkable growth. New concepts, methods and
applications are being continually proposed and exploited
to provide efficient tools for solving a variety of
optimization problems. The aim of this international
journal is to collect and disseminate the progressive body
of knowledge on evolutionary optimization techniques and
their applications, via a single organized medium. These
techniques include Genetic Algorithms, Genetic Programming,
Evolutionary Programming and Evolution Strategies among
others, all of which are inspired by restricted models of
natural evolution.

Applications of evolutionary optimization cover a wide
range of engineering optimization problems, operations
research and other related fields. The principal focus of
the journal will be the implementation of Evolutionary
Optimization techniques to practice. The journal will be
primarily concerned with these applications which include
those aspects of computing techniques that use the model of
natural selection and other biologically oriented models to
perform the process of optimization.

Evolutionary Optimization will be publishing invited
papers, original research and review papers and short
letters. The journal will also have special issues devoted
to relevant topics. Book reviews, forthcoming events and
software sections of the journal will report the recent
developments and advances in the field.

A section of the journal will be devoted to short 
communications, letters, abstracts and notes. These
short papers will be quickly reviewed and published.

Mission Statement of the Journal

(i) Fast Turnaround

The journal will strive by all means to reduce the
throughput for the submitted papers, by extensive use of
the electronic media in communication and publishing.

(ii) Fast Communication

The journal will provide the forum for fast exchange of
ideas by means of publishing short letters which will be
devoted to results obtained immediately upon their
discovery and reports from important events and activities.

(iii) Collective responsibility

The journal tries to make its contribution in the field by
collective support of its editors, editorial board and its
global network of correspondents. All board members are
equally responsible to uphold the mission of the journal.

(iv) Active Readers

The journal expects to have active readers which will
contribute to the future development of the journal. The
journal is open to the readers and new ideas are warmly
welcome.
