Call For Papers
Evolutionary Computation and Games
Special session at The Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC'04)
Portland, Oregon, USA
19-23 June 2004
The Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC'04) will bring together
top researchers, practitioners and students from around the world to
discuss the latest advances in the field of evolutionary computation.
Games provide an ideal environment for the study of evolutionary
algorithms as they provide competitive and dynamic environments and are
interesting to observe. Games also represent an important application of
evolutionary computation, and there are fascinating challenges between
various classes of player, such as human, pre-programmed, and evolved.
Papers are invited for this special session which aims to bring together
leading researchers and practitioners in the study of this area.
Topics include (but are not limited to) evolutionary aspects of the
- Co-Evolution in Games
- Comparative studies: e.g. evolved players versus human-designed
players versus other learning algorithms.
- Cooperative Learning in Games
- Theoretical or empirical analysis of evolutionary algorithms and
- Evolutionary Game Theory
- Games involving control of physical objects (e.g. Remote Control Car
- Evolutionary Multi-Agent and Multi-Strategy Learning
- Games involving complex physics (e.g. Tennis)
- Prey / Predator games (e.g. Pacman)
- Economics or mathematical games (e.g. Auctions, Prisoners Dilemma)
- Games involving chance (e.g. Backgammon, Poker)
- Evolutionary games for mobile platforms (phones, PDAs)
- Evolving AI for console games
Papers should follow the formatting guidelines for CEC2004 regular
papers, and should be submitted by email directly to one of the session
organisers for review.
Submissions should be in PDF format and should not exceed 8 pages in
length. This includes all figures, tables, graphs, photos, and
bibliography entries. Extra pages may be purchased at US$100 per page.
Special session papers should NOT be submitted through the regular
CEC2004 procedure. However, they will be treated in the same way as
regular papers, and included in the conference proceedings. Please
double check the printed appearance of your paper before sending it.
