NEWS: Due to a large number of requests for late submissions, the EvoStar

submission sites will stay open until Friday, November 15, after which no

further submissions will be accepted. Authors who have already submitted, can

update their work until this time.



************************************************************************

         EvoCOP 2020 - The 20th European Conference on

    Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimisation

          http://www.evostar.org/2020/cfp_evocop.php



                   April 15 - 17, 2020

                       Seville, Spain



       held as part of EvoStar (http://www.evostar.org)

************************************************************************



The 20th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial

Optimisation is a multidisciplinary conference that brings together researchers

working on applications and theory of evolutionary computation methods and

other metaheuristics for solving difficult combinatorial optimisation problems

appearing in various industrial, economic, and scientific domains.



Successfully solved problems include, but are not limited to, multi-objective,

uncertain, dynamic and stochastic problems in the context of scheduling,

timetabling, network design, transportation and distribution, vehicle routing,

stringology, graphs, satisfiability, energy optimisation, cutting, packing,

planning and search-based software engineering.



The EvoCOP 2020 conference will be held in the city of Seville, Spain, together

with EuroGP (the 23rd European Conference on Genetic Programming), EvoMUSART

(the 9th European conference on evolutionary and biologically inspired music,

sound, art and design) and EvoApplications (the 23rd European Conference on the

Applications of Evolutionary Computation), in a joint event collectively known

as EvoStar (Evo*).



Accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in

Computer Science series. (See https://link.springer.com/conference/evocop for

previous proceedings.)



The best regular paper presented at EvoCOP 2020 will be distinguished

with a Best Paper Award. Authors nominated for the best regular paper award

will be invited for fast track publication in the Evolutionary Computation

journal (MIT Press). The invited submissions must significantly extend the

conference paper and will undergo peer review.



**** Areas of Interest and Contributions ****



EvoCOP welcomes submissions in all experimental and theoretical aspects of

evolutionary computation and other metaheuristics to combinatorial optimisation

problems, including (but not limited to) the following areas:



* Applications of metaheuristics to combinatorial optimization problems

* Theoretical developments

* Neighbourhoods and efficient algorithms for searching them

* Variation operators for stochastic search methods

* Constraint-handling techniques

* Parallelisation and grid computing

* Search space and landscape analyses

* Comparisons between different (also exact) methods

* Automatic algorithm configuration and design



Prominent examples of metaheuristics include (but are not limited to):



* Evolutionary algorithms

* Estimation of distribution algorithms

* Swarm intelligence methods such as ant colony and particle swarm optimisation

* Artificial immune systems

* Local search methods such as simulated annealing, tabu search, variable

neighbourhood search, iterated local search, scatter search and path relinking

* Hybrid methods such as memetic algorithms

* Matheuristics (hybrids of exact and heuristic methods)

* Hyper-heuristics and autonomous search

* Surrogate-model-based methods



Notice that, by tradition, continuous/numerical optimisation is *not* part of

the topics of interest of EvoCOP. Interested authors might consider submitting

to other EvoStar conferences such as EvoApplications.



**** Submission Details ****



Paper submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. The submissions

will be peer reviewed by members of the program committee. The authors of

accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the basis of the reviewers'

comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts.

At least one author of each accepted work has to register for the conference,

attend the conference and present the work.



The reviewing process will be double-blind, please omit information about the

authors in the submitted paper. Submit your manuscript in Springer LNCS format.



Page limit: 16 pages
