EVO* 2009


EuroGP, EvoCOP, EvoBIO and EvoWorkshops

15-17 April, 2009
Eberhard Karls University
Tübingen, Germany



The EuroGP, EvoCOP and EvoBIO conferences and the workshops
collectively entitled EvoWorkshops compose EVO*: Europe's
premier co-located events in the field of Evolutionary Computing.
Featuring the latest in theoretical and applied research, EVO*
topics include recent genetic programming challenges, evolutionary
and other meta-heuristic approaches for combinatorial optimization,
evolutionary algorithms, machine learning and data mining techniques
in the biosciences, in numerical optimization, in music and art domains,
in image analysis and signal processing, in hardware optimization and
in a wide range of applications to scientific, industrial, financial and
other real-world problems.

Twelfth European Conference on Genetic Programming: high quality
papers are sought on topics strongly related to the evolution of
computer programs, ranging from theoretical work to innovative

Ninth European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in
Combinatorial Optimization: practical and
theoretical contributions are invited, related to
evolutionary computation techniques and other meta-heuristics for
solving combinatorial optimization problems.

Seventh European Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine
Learning and Data Mining in Bioinformatics: the emphasis is on
evolutionary computation and other advanced techniques
addressing important problems in molecular biology, proteomics,
genomics and genetics, that have been implemented and tested in
simulations and on real-life datasets.

The twelve workshops which make up this event are focused on
the use of Evolutionary Computation in different application areas:
EvoCOMNET: Telecommunication networks and other parallel and distributed 
EvoENVIRONMENT: Environmental issues
EvoFIN: Finance and economics
EvoGAMES: Games
EvoHOT: Design automation
EvoIASP: Image analysis and signal processing
EvoINTERACTION: Interactive evolution and humanized computational 
EvoMUSART: Music, sound, art and design
EvoNUM: Continuous parameter optimization
EvoPHD: Graduate student workshop on evolutionary computation
EvoSTOC: Stochastic and dynamic environments (EvoSTOC has organized
the “yellow submarine challenge” competition for dynamic optimization,
further information can be found in the workshop page)
EvoTRANSLOG: Transportation and logistics

In 2009, the event will take place in Tübingen, a traditional university
town in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, situated on a ridge between
the Neckar and Ammer rivers in the southwest of the country,
about 30 kms southwest of Stuttgart.
EVO* 2009 will be hosted at Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen, 
founded in 1477
and one of the oldest universities in Germany.

Important Dates for all events are:

*** Submission deadline: 5 November 2008 ***
Notification to authors: 9 January 2009
Camera-ready deadline: 21 January 2009
Conference: 15-17 April 2009

Evo* 2009 proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

The website http://www.evostar.org offers information relevant
to all events, including calls for papers, deadlines, organizing
committees, submission requirements, local information and
a thorough view on the previous editions.
