  IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC) 

              September 25-28, 2007 

         Swissôtel The Stamford, Singapore 

          Website: http://www.cec2007.org   






We would like to invite you to attend the 2007 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary
Computation (CEC). Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society,
and co-sponsored by the Evolutionary Programming Society and the IET, the
CEC 2007 will be held in Singapore, September 25-28, 2007. The annual IEEE
Congress on Evolutionary Computation is one of the leading events in the
area of evolutionary computation. It covers all topics in evolutionary
computation, including, but not limited to: 


* Ant colony optimization                       * Artificial immune systems 

* Artificial life                               * Autonomous mental &
behavior development 

* Bioinformatics & bioengineering               * Coevolution & collective

* Cognitive systems & applications              * Combinatorial & numerical

* Computational finance & economics             * Constraint & uncertainty

* Evolutionary data mining                      * Evolutionary design   

* Evolutionary games                            * Evolutionary intelligent

* Evolutionary learning systems                 * Evolutionary robotic &
control systems 

* Evolvable hardware & software                 * Evolving neural networks &
fuzzy systems 

* Memetic & hybrid algorithms                   * Molecular & quantum

* Multiobjective optimization                   * Particle swarm

* Real-world applications                       * Representation & operators

* Theory of evolutionary computation 



CEC 2007 will feature a world-class conference that aims to bring together
researchers and practitioners in the field of evolutionary computation and
computational intelligence from all around the globe. Technical exchanges
within the research community will encompass keynote speeches, special
sessions, tutorial workshops, panel discussions as well as poster
presentations. On top of this, participants will be treated to a series of
social functions, receptions and networking sessions, which will serve as a
vital channel to establish new connections and foster everlasting friendship
among fellow counterparts.



Singapore is a vibrant commercial and financial hub, which at the same time
also serves its role as a melting pot for the fusion of a diverse mix of
many different cultures. Visitors to this tropical island resort will be
treated to a great array of interesting attractions, festival celebrations
and cultural events, not forgetting the one-stop shopping and eating
experience in this entertainment paradise. The conglomeration of all the
different elements will definitely give visitors of Singapore an exciting
and unforgettable experience.
