Subject: FEA2000

The Third International Workshop on Frontiers in Evolutionary Algorithms
(FEA 2000)

Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA

February 27 -- March 3, 2000

In conjunction with

Fifth Joint Conference on Information Sciences


The FEA workshop is intended as a forum for the presentation of recent
advances and speculations on the foundations and applications of Evolutionary
Algorithms, a term that encompasses the already traditional fields of Evolutionary
Computation (Genetic Algorithms, Genetic Programming, Evolution Strategies) and
recent trends such as the radical propositions of Evolvable Hardware.
These algorithms and methods have become a tool of common use by the engineers and
scientists that face complex and ill posed optimization problems, either stationary or
dynamic in nature. Therefore the range of applications is steadily growing.
Despite this broad spectrum of interests, the workshop is a friendly one-track meeting
point for the exchange of experiences, the discussion of ideas and an excelent opporunity
to foster world-wide research collaboration opportunities.

We invite the submission of original research contributions, discussion papers that posses tutorial value, and reviews that help to understand the recent and
near future evolution of the field.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1 Fundamental Issues

Convergence results
Evoutionary Algorithms as Anticipative Systems
Evolutionary Algorithms as Adaptive Systems
Symbolic or rule-based systems
Artificial Brains
Evolution Algorithms in Artificial Life
Co-evolutionary Algorithms
Evolution Algorithms in Multi-Agent Computing, Quantum Computing and Molecular Computing
Complexity Reduction

2 Applications

Signal Processing
Image Processing
Computer Vision
Multimedia applications
Financial applications and Time Series prediction
Data Mining & Warehousing
Information Retrieval
Classification and Clustering
Regression and Model Identification
Machine Learning
Pattern Recognition
Knowledge Discovery
Constraint Satisfaction and Constrained Optimisation
Adaptive and Anticipative Control
Static and Dynamic Optimization
Evolutive robotics
Evolutive Knowbots
Autonomous Systems
