                                 EvoCOP2001

             FIRST EUROPEAN WORKSHOP ON EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION
                        IN COMBINATORIAL OPTIMIZATION

                      Lake Como (Milan), April 18, 2001

                               Call for Papers

                   http://www.ads.tuwien.ac.at/evocop2001

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, traveling salesperson, satisfiability, packing,
network design, or general mixed integer programming. EvoCOP is the first
European event specifically dedicated to the application of evolutionary
computation to combinatorial optimization problems and gives researchers in
those fields an 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 workshop is sponsored by EvoNet, the Network of Excellence in
Evolutionary Computing, and will be held in conjunction with EuroGP2001, the
European Conference on Genetic Programming (April 18-20), as part of
EvoWorkshops2001, which will be held on the first day of EuroGP.

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 the EvoCOP chairs at evocop2001@ads.tuwien.ac.at no
later than November 16, 2000. The papers will be peer reviewed by at least
two members of the program committee. Authors will be notified via email on
the results of the review by December 20, 2000.

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 January 25, 2001. The accepted papers will appear in
the workshop proceedings and be published as Springer Lecture Notes in
Computer Science. They will be available at the workshop.

Formatting instructions, templates etc. can be found at
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

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.
