Call for Papers and

Invitation to take part in the Discussion

*****************************************************************

On behalf of Plymouth Engineering Design Centre, Plymouth, UK,
we call for your papers for the special session on 'Applications
of Evolutionary Computation in Engineering'. The session is
planned to integrate experience from different engineering
applications of Evolutionary Computing. The objective of the special
session is to put forwarda common forum where people from different
engineering disciplines can talk to each other and share their
experience. The application areas of interest include but are not
limited to :

a. Biotechnology
b. Chemical Engineering
c. Computer Aided Design, Control and Manufacturing
d. Engineering Economics and Management
e. Systems Engineering
f. Artificial Intelligence
g. Pattern Recognition
h. Electronics and Telecommunications
i. Medicine and Medical Engineering
j. Military Applications

The contributions can be in the form of :

a) 4 page (max) Original paper, to be published in a
proceedings
b) 4 page (max) paper on your already published work
c) your participation in the discussion during the workshop

Please refer to the ORIGINAL CALL FOR PAPERS below for the
submission and further details. PLEASE MENTION ABOUT THE SPECIAL
SESSION IN YOUR LETTER WHEN YOU SUBMIT A PAPER TO JAPAN.

[CFP] Online Workshop on Evolutionary Computation

This is the first CFP for 2nd Online Workshop on Evolutionary
Computation. This CFP is also available on WWW. The URL is

http://www.bioele.nuee.nagoya-u.ac.jp/wec2/

* CALL FOR PAPERS


* Second Online Workshop on Evolutionary Computation (WEC2)
*
* Mar. 4 (Mon) - Mar. 22 (Fri)

* On Internet (WWW (World Wide Web) ) Served by Nagoya
University *

* Sponsored by
*
* Research Group on ECOmp of
*

* the Society of Fuzzy Theory and Systems (SOFT)
*

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
exchanged.

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

TOPICS:

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

IMPORTANT DATES:

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
