Evo* 2010
Welcome to EvoStar 2010
The main European events on Evolutionary Computation
Evolutionary Computation in Image Analysis and Signal Processing

Evolutionary algorithms have been shown to be tools which can be used effectively in the development of systems (software or hardware) for image analysis and signal processing in complex domains of high industrial and social relevance.

EvoIASP has been the first European event specifically dedicated to the applications of evolutionary computation (EC) to image analysis and signal processing (IASP) and gives European and non-European researchers in those fields, as well as people from industry, an opportunity to present their latest research and to discuss current developments and applications, besides fostering closer future interaction between members of the three scientific communities.

In 2010, EvoIASP will reach its twelfth edition, after being held in Gothenburg, Sweden (1999), Edinburgh, UK (2000), Como, Italy (2001), Kinsale, Ireland (2002), Colchester, UK (2003), Coimbra, Portugal (2004), Lausanne, Switzerland (2005), Budapest, Hungary (2006), Valencia, Spain (2007), Naples, Italy (2008), and Tuebingen, Germany (2009).

EvoIASP is part of EvoApplications 2010, the Conference on Applications of Evolutionary Computation, one of the events which will take place under the common name of Evo* 2010.

Areas of Interests and Contributions

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • applications of evolutionary computation to real-life IASP problems
  • evolvable vision and signal processing hardware
  • evolutionary pattern recognition
  • hybrid architectures for machine vision and signal processing including evolutionary components
  • theoretical developments
  • comparisons between different evolutionary techniques and between evolutionary and non-evolutionary techniques in IASP applications
  • time series analysis by means of EC techniques
Publication Details

Authors will be notified via email on the results of the review by December 20, 2009.

Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of Evo*, published in a volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science, which will be available at the Conference.

Accepted papers can be found here.

The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a special issue of the Journal of Artificial Evolution and Applications.

Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS format no later than November 30, 2009 using the online submission tool at http://myreview.csregistry.org/evoapplications10/.
Please refer to Springer LNCS web site for the paper formatting instructions.

Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere, and will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. The review process is double-blind and therefore the paper must not contain any references that would identify the authors.

The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts.

At least one author of each accepted paper has to register for the conference no later than the early registration deadline, and at least one author has to attend the conference and present the paper.
