The First Asia-Pacific Conference on Simulated Evolution And Learning (SEAL'96)

Taejon, Korea

9-12 November 1996

in conjunction with
Micro-Robot World Cup Soccer Tournament (MIROSOT'96)

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as a volume in its
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.

Aims and Scopes
---------------

Evolution and learning are two fundamental forms of adaptation. This conference
aims at exploring these two forms of adaptation and their roles and
interactions in adaptive systems. Cross-fertilisation between evolutionary
learning and other machine learning approaches, such as neural network learning,
reinforcement learning, decision tree learning, fuzzy system learning, etc.,
will be strongly encouraged by the conference. The conference will provide a
common forum for researchers and practitioners from different backgrounds to
exchange their new ideas and latest results in simulated evolution and
learning.

The conference is now soliciting papers in the following areas although papers
in other relevant areas are also welcome:

1. Evolutionary Learning

+ Fundamental Issues in Evolutionary Learning
(e.g., Generalisation, Scalability, and Computational Complexity)
+ Co-Evolutionary Learning
+ Modular Evolutionary Learning Systems
+ Classifier Systems
+ Artificial Immune Systems
+ Representation Issue in Evolutionary Learning
(e.g., rules, trees, graphs, etc.)
+ Interactions Between Learning and Evolution in a System
+ Comparison between Evolutionary Learning and Other Learning Approaches
(Neural Network, Decision Tree, Reinforcement Learning, etc.)

2. Hybrid Learning

+ Evolutionary Artificial Neural Networks
+ Evolutionary Fuzzy Systems
+ Combinations Between Evolutionary and Reinforcement Learning
+ Combinations Between Evolutionary and Decision Tree Learning
+ Evolutionary Clustering and Unsupervised Learning
+ Genetic Programming
+ Other Hybrid Learning Systems (e.g., Multi-Agent Systems, etc.)

3. Adaptive Systems

+ Complexity in Adaptive Systems
+ Evolutionary Robotics
+ Artificial Ecology

4. Evolutionary Economics and Games

+ Analysis and Simulation in Evolutionary Economics, Finance and Marketing
+ Evolutionary Games
+ Evolutionary Computation Techniques in Economics, Finance and Marketing

5. Applications of Evolutionary and Hybrid Learning Systems

+ Classification and Recognition
+ Time-Series Prediction
+ Optimisation
+ System Identification
+ Others

Important Dates
---------------

15 July 1996 Deadline for submission of complete papers (<=10 pages)
01 Sept 1996 Notification of acceptance
18 Oct 1996 Deadline for camera-ready copies
09-12 Nov 1996 Conference sessions

Concurrent Event
----------------

SEAL'96 will be held in conjunction with MIROSOT'96. There will be no
parallel sessions between the two so that all participants of the conference
can watch the World Cup Soccer Tournament played by various robots! This
provides a golden opportunity for scientists and engineers to interact with
each other in a relax and stimulating environment.

Paper Submission
----------------

FOUR (4) hard copies of the completed paper should be submitted to one of the
programme committee co-chairs before or on 15 July 1996. Late submission may be
considered based on time limitation. (The main constraint is the time to get
referees' reports back in time.)

Special Sessions
----------------

Proposals for special sessions at SEAL'96 are invited. All proposals should
be sent to one of the programme committee co-chairs via email. A proposal
should include a brief biography of the session organiser(s) and a description
of the proposed session. The deadline for proposal submission is 15 June 1996.

Preparation of Manuscript
-------------------------

All four hard copies must be printed on 8.5 in
x 11 in or A4 paper using 12 point Times. The left and right margin should be
25mm each. The top and bottom margin should be 35mm each. Each submitted paper
must have a separate title page and a body. The title page must include a
title, a 300-400 word abstract, a list of keywords, the names and addresses of
all authors, their email addresses, and their telephone and fax numbers.
The body must also include the title and abstract, but the author information
must be excluded. The length of submitted papers (excluding the title page)
must be no more than 10 single-spaced, single-column pages including all
figures, tables, and bibliography. Shorter papers are encouraged.

Proceedings
-----------

The preprint proceedings of the conference will be made available at the
conference to all registered participants. The formal proceedings will be
published by Springer-Verlag as a volume in its Lecture Notes in Artificial
Intelligence. The final camera-ready copy of accepted papers is due at the
conference. The format and style will be adviced later. It is important that
all potential authors follow the deadlines so that prompt publication is
possible.
