                  Call for Extended Abstracts

            Workshop on Systems to Build Systems
                  
             July 18, 2010, Barcelona, SPAIN
                        As a part of
  2010 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence 
                  http://www.wcci2010.org/

                   Deadline: June 7, 2010

Instructions for authors:
The Organising Committee invites you to submit your extended abstract in PDF
format to [log in to unmask] by the deadline June 7, 2010. The
extended abstract should not be longer than 2 pages or 1000 words (with
references included). The authors of the selected papers after the
presentations will be invited to submit their extended work for peer review
and possible publication in the

Special Issue of the Journal of Operational Research Society on Systems to
Build Systems

Organisers: 
Prof Edmund Burke
Dr Ender Ozcan 
Dr Jonathan Thompson

Purpose, aims and objectives:
The current state of the art in the development of search methodologies is
focused around the human design of bespoke systems, which are specifically
tailored to the problem solving environment in hand. A particularly
challenging goal is to develop intelligent systems which are capable of
automatically building (and/or selecting) new systems. A paradigm shift has
emerged in search methodologies over the past few years. Instead of taking
the short term approach of dealing with single problems, there is a growing
body of work that aims to raise the level of generality by adopting the long
term approach of providing a more broadly applicable solution. These types
of "systems to build systems" have the potential to significantly reduce the
resource cost that is often associated with developing bespoke systems,
since the search process is automated through adaptation/learning.

The main purpose of the workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners
together from the computer science, artificial intelligence and operational
research fields, in order to discuss new ideas, recent advances,
methodologies, frameworks, challenges and opportunities within the context
of systems to build systems.

Topics on the systems to build systems (e.g. hyper-heuristics) include (but
not limited to):
- new methodologies to build (and/or select) systems
- automated (computer aided) design of heuristics (e.g., by genetic
programming, grammatical evolution, etc.)
- adaptive and self-tuning methodologies to build systems (e.g. evolutionary
algorithms, multi-meme algorithms, adaptive operator selection, dynamic
algorithm portfolios, reactive search, and others)
- machine learning techniques to support/build systems (e.g. learning
classifier systems, data mining, reinforcement learning, neural networks,
and others)
- fuzzy systems to build systems
- applications and new challenging domains, particularly real-world problems
- foundational studies towards the understanding of systems to build systems
- classifications or categorisations of methodologies
- generality of the methodologies to build systems
- scalability issues
- issues in multi-objective, discrete and continuous methodologies to build
systems
- issues in comparison of systems to build systems over multiple problem
domains

Invited speakers:
- Prof Graham Kendall, University of Nottingham
  "Hyper-heuristics: Past, Present and Future"

- Prof Erwin Pesch, University of Siegen
  "Metaheuristics: New Perspectives and Real Applications"

Important dates:
  - Submission: June 7, 2010
  - Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2010
  - Workshop: July 18, 2010
