***** Evolutionary Scheduling Session in CEC 2004 *****
The 2004 Congress on Evolutionary Computation, co-sponsored by the IEEE Neural Networks Society, the Evolutionary Programming Society, and the IEE, will be held in Portland Marriott Downtown, Portland, Oregon, USA, June 19-23, 2004. (http://cec2004.org/home.html).
The Evolutionary Scheduling Session in CEC 2004 will cover all aspects of evolutionary scheduling and related issues. It hopes to attract a balance of applied and theoretical papers from across the evolutionary computing and meta-heuristic research communities. Typical examples of such problems include rostering, machine scheduling, timetabling, vehicle routing, resource assignment, planning, etc.
More information regarding the Evolutionary Scheduling Session is available at http://www.cs.unr.edu/~sushil/cec/. The paper submission schedule is as follows:
Submission of papers: 31 January 2004
Notification of acceptance/rejection: 15 February 2004
Camera-ready paper: 1 March 2004
Format of the paper can be obtained from http://cec2004.org/home.html. All papers will be peer-reviewed following the same procedure as regular papers submitted to CEC 2004.
