Evo* 2010
Welcome to EvoStar 2010
The main European events on Evolutionary Computation
Nature Inspired Methods for Intelligent Systems

EvoIntelligence is devoted to the use of nature inspired methods to create intelligent systems. The goal of this event is to bring researchers from a variety of different areas together who all want to create intelligent systems. Researchers working in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or other related areas are invited to submit their latest work. We invite submissions on different areas such as Evolutionary Robotics, Artificial Life or other related areas.

Intelligent systems do not necessarily have to exhibit human or animal-like intelligence. Intelligent behavior can also be found in everyday devices such as a VCR or handheld devices such as a MP3-Player which learn from the human who is operating the device. Nature inspired methods include all aspects of evolutionary computation, e.g. genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, genetic programming, ant algorithms, or particle swarm systems. Learning from biological systems on how to solve a problem also qualifies as a nature inspired method. Examples of such systems are bio-inspired systems or bionic systems.

Accepted papers will be published in a volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science together with papers from other events of the EvoStar conference.

Areas of Interests and Contributions

High quality papers are sought on topics related to intelligent systems using nature inspired methods, ranging from theoretical work to innovative applications in the context of:

  • Evolutionary Robotics
  • Artificial Life
  • Intelligent Devices
  • Intelligent Language Systems
  • Bionic Systems
  • Learning Systems
  • Intelligent Behavior
  • Intelligent Agents
Publication Details

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.

Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS format no later than November 4, 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.
