                  2ND EUROPEAN WORKSHOP ON EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION
                            IN COMBINATORIAL OPTIMIZATION

                          Kinsale, Ireland, April 3-4, 2002

                                   Call for Papers

    Evolutionary algorithms have often been shown to be effective for difficult
    combinatorial optimization problems appearing in various industrial,
    economical, and scientific domains. Prominent examples of such problems are
    transportation problems, vehicle routing, traveling salesperson,
    satisfiability, packing, network design, or general mixed integer
    programming.

    This year's EvoCOP 2001 (http://www.ads.tuwien.ac.at/evocop2001) was the
    first international event specifically dedicated to the application of
    evolutionary computation to combinatorial optimization problems. It gave
    researchers a good opportunity to present their latest research and to
    discuss current developments and applications, besides stimulating closer
    future interaction between members of this scientific community. The success
    of EvoCOP 2001 was documented by 31 submitted and 23 accepted papers, which
    were published by Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science
    (LNCS), Volume 2037.

    EvoCOP 2002 wants to bring researchers in the field together once again.
    Each accepted paper will be presented orally at the workshop and printed in
    the proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS series.

    The workshop is sponsored by EvoNet, the Network of Excellence in
    Evolutionary Computing, and will be held in conjunction with EuroGP2002, the
    European Conference on Genetic Programming (April 3-5), EvoIASP, the 4th
    European Workshop on Image Analysis and Signal Processing, and EvoSTIM, the
    3rd European Workshop on Scheduling and Timetabling.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

       * Applications of evolutionary algorithms and related heuristics like
         simulated annealing or ant systems to combinatorial optimization
         problems
       * Representation techniques
       * Evolutionary operators
       * Constraint-handling techniques
       * Hybrid methods
       * Parallelization
       * Theoretical developments, search space analyses
       * Comparisons between different (also non-evolutionary) techniques

    Submissions

    To submit, send your manuscript (postscript or PDF, maximum length: 10 A4
    pages) via email to evocop2002@ads.tuwien.ac.at no later than November 4,
    2001. Formatting instructions can be found at
    http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/instruct/typeinst.pdf The papers will be
    peer reviewed by three members of the program committee. Authors will be
    notified via email on the results of the review by December 1, 2001.

    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 by December 20, 2001.

    By submitting a camera-ready paper, the author(s) agree that at least one
    author will attend and present each accepted paper at the workshop.
