We call for your papers for online discussions using the Internet.
The goal of this workshop is to give its attendees opportunities to
exchange information and ideas on various aspects of Evolutionary
Computation and "save travel expenses" without having to visit foreign
countries. We aim to have ample discussion time between the authors
and attendees and make them visible to everyone on the Internet.

This is the 2nd of the online WEC series. The 1st one was held on
Oct. 9 - 20, 1995. In spite of the very short preparation time (2
weeks), 22 papers were submitted. During the workshop, 1358 people
visited the home page. The ps files of the submitted papers were
copied 822 times in total. Interesting Q&A on many papers were

The 2nd WEC will welcome original contributions. The proceedings is
planned to be published. We all look forward to your active

Theory of evolutionary computation
Applications of evolutionary computation
Artificial life and biologically inspired evolutionary computation
Evolutionary algorithms for computational intelligence
Evolutionary computation for neural networks
Fuzzy logic in evolutionary algorithms

Deadline for Submission of Abstracts and Main Text : February 26, 1996
Opening the papers to the public : March 4, 1996
Workshop Weeks : March 11 - 22, 1996

Send an abstract and main text to the address below.
