We call for your participation 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
