***** SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO May, 8 2009 *****
The 9th international conference on Artificial Evolution (EA'09)
26th to 28th October 2009
The 9th international conference on Artificial Evolution (EA'09) will take
place from October 26th to 28th 2009 in Strasbourg (East of France), which will
give attendees a great opportunity to discover the Alsace region, its
gastronomy and renowned wines over three days.
As usual, the conference tries to maximize many objectives, namely:
* Quality, with a usual acceptance rate under 50% and the best papers (12
pages, LNCS format) published in Springer's LNCS series (cf. previous editions
of EA conferences published in LNCS 1363, 1829, 2310, 2936, 3871, 4926).
* Comfort, with a unique single session formula of 30mn presentations, which
guarantees a large audience to all accepted papers,
* Interest, with (beyond the presented papers) a great invited speaker: Prof
* Friendly atmosphere, with included lunches, coffee breaks, social event and
* Low registration fees (see below)
** Registration fees **
Registration fees are kept minimal, as the aim of EA conferences is not to make
any money (organization of the conference does not go through a specialized
company, organizers are not only benevolent, but pay conference fees as anyone
else if they want to attend).
Therefore, we are once more very proud to announce very reasonable fees that
include coffee breaks and lunch over 3 days, as well as banquet and social
* EUR 200 for students and reviewers (who, thanks to their hard work,
greatly contribute to the quality of the conference),
* EUR 250 for academics, and
* EUR 350 for industrials/companies.
Important: the EA conference requires that
at least one co-author registers to present the paper. Failure to come
and present the paper will result in the paper not being published in
the LNCS volume.
** Topics of Interest**
Authors are invited to present original work relevant to artificial evolution,
including but not limited to:
* Evolutionary Computation, Co-evolution, Memetic algorithms, Multi-Objective
Optimization, Constraint Handling, Dynamic Optimization,
* Artificial Life, Population Dynamics,
* Theory, algorithmics and modeling, implementations,
* Application of evolutionary paradigms to real or virtual world domains,
including but not limited to engineering, design, biosciences, robotics and
* Other biologically-inspired paradigms such as, for instance, swarms,
artificial ants, artificial immune systems,
* Machine Learning and hybridization with other soft computing techniques.
** Important Dates **
* Submission: extended to May 8th 2009
* Notification: 20th June 2009
* Conference: 26th to 28th October 2009
** Submission Guidelines **
The paper page limit is 12 pages in LNCS format. Authors should submit an
electronic version of papers. (please
remember while starting to write your paper that we do prefer
We all hope to receive your contributions and welcome you in Strasbourg next
26th to 28th October.
