    Call for Papers

    A workshop on ``Approximation and Learning in Evolutionary
    Computation'' is to be organized within the Genetic and
    Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO) from July 9 to
    July 13, 2002, New York City, USA. See further details at:

    http://www.cs.unr.edu/~sushil/workshop/

    1. Workshop Description
     
    In real-world applications, it is often necessary to build
    approximate models for fitness evaluation. One essential
    difficulty in applying evolutionary algorithms to the
    optimization of complex systems is the high time complexity
    of each fitness evaluation. Besides, in some applications,
    no explicit mathematical functions are available for
    fitness evaluation. Further more, approximate fitness models
    have also been proved useful in dealing with noisy and
    multi-modal fitness functions. This workshop aims to get
    together researchers coming from different research areas
    to see the state-of-art, to discuss the main problems and
    future work in this area.

    2. Topics of Interests

    Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, any of the
    following areas:

    * Off-line and on-line learning for approximate model
      construction
    * Off-line and on-line learning for performance improvement
    * Evolution control and model management in evolutionary
      computation
    * Multi-level evolutionary optimization
    * Learning in multi-objective evolutionary optimization
    * Fitness estimation in noisy environment
    * Comparison of different modeling methods, such as
      neural networks, response surface and least squares methods,
      and probabilistic models for evolutionary computation
    * Comparison of different sampling techniques for on-line and
      off-linelearning

    3. Submission Details

    Please follow the main conference guidelines with regards to the
    format of the paper. We expect submissions to be short papers
    or extended abstracts upto four (4) pages in length. Please send
    an electronic copy of the paper in PDF or postscript to
    yaochu_jin@de.hrdeu.com with subject ``GECCO workshop submission''
    no later than March 4, 2002. Workshop proceedings will be published
    and will be available at the conference.

    Important dates:

    Paper submission deadline: March 4, 2002
    Notification of acceptance: April 5, 2002
    Final manuscript: April 25, 2002
