Evo* 2010
Welcome to EvoStar 2010
The main European events on Evolutionary Computation
Registration

EVO* 2010 (EvoStar) brings together Europe's premier events in the field of evolutionary computing, namely the three EuroGP, EvoCOP and EvoBIO conferences and eleven application events collectively entitled EvoApplications (EvoCOMNET, EvoCOMPLEX, EvoENVIRONMENT, EvoFIN, EvoGAMES, EvoIASP, EvoINTELLIGENCE, EvoMUSART, EvoNUM, EvoSTOC, EvoTRANSLOG ), in addition to EvoPHD, the 5th European Graduate Student Workshop on Evolutionary Computation. These co-located events will be held in Istanbul Technical University in Turkey on 7-9 April 2010. A single registration allows access to all events with nearly 200 papers presented over three days. The friendly and informal atmosphere at EvoStar events is intended to foster beneficial friendships and longer-term collaboration across continents and across research generations.

An early discount is given to all registrations received by 1st March 2010, and you are encouraged to take advantage of the lower rates. The organisers work hard to minimise conference fees, and the 2010 registration rates have been fixed at the same level in Euros for a number of years now. Unfortunately, the relative decline of sterling means a regrettable increase in registration costs for UK residents but the fees are the same as 2009 rates. Conference registrations are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with the organisers reserving the right to limit places if necessary. Registrations close on 1st April, a week before the events commence. Half price student discounts are available for those registered at appropriate academic organisations, who are able to prove their student status if asked to do so.

Online registration and payment are available via a SSL secure website operated by Edinburgh Napier University in conjunction with Barclaycard. Online payment can be made using VISA, MASTERCARD, DELTA, MAESTRO, SWITCH, SOLO, JCB, VISA ELECTRON. Online registration and payment is charged in British pounds sterling at the rates shown below, with Euro fees shown as an approximate guide. Payment can also be made by cheque in Euros or British pounds sterling but sending funds by bank transfer is not available. If you are unable to pay using credit card, please contact the EvoStar Coordinator (Jennifer Willies, J.Willies(at)napier.ac.uk).
