DNA-Based Evolutionary Computation, Interactive Computational Models,
Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization, Evolutionary Combinatorial
Optimization, Evolutionary Scheduling and Routing, Simulated
Annealing, Estimation of Distribution Algorithms, Tabu Search,
and others

Research in Application Domains:
Medical Applications, Industry Applications, Agricultural
Applications, Military and Security Applications, Artificial Life,
Search-Based Software Engineering, Evolutionary Robotics,
Nature-Inspired Computation, Swarm Intelligence Optimization
Applications, Intelligent Control, Intelligent Management,
Intelligent Information Processing, Multi-Agent Theory, Pattern
Recognition, Web Intelligence, Intelligent Transportation Systems,
and others

Paper Submission Deadline   December 6, 2008
Decision Notification     January 30, 2009
Camera-ready Submission     March 1, 2009


All accepted papers will be published on CD and in the ACM Digital
Library, which is indexed by SCI and EI. Some selected papers will
be recommended for publication in expanded versions in such
journals as Evolutionary Computation or Genetic Programming and
Evolvable Machines, indexed by SCI. All registered participants
will receive a CD containing the proceedings.

FREE to Registered Participants!

Registered participants may attend any of the 90-minute tutorials,
presented by some of the world’s leading experts in evolutionary
computation. Tutorials will be distributed throughout the three
days of the conference, allowing each participant to decide, at
most time slots, to attend either a tutorial or one of 5-6 sessions
in which accepted papers are presented. Tutorials are grouped into
introductory level, advanced, and specialized tutorials. In general,
introductory tutorials in a given area will be scheduled ahead of
the advanced tutorials, allowing the interested participant to
attend them both in order.
