EDINBURGH, April 17, 2000

Evolutionary algorithms have been shown to be tools which can be used effectively in the development of systems (software or hardware) for image analysis and signal processing in complex domains of high industrial and social relevance.

EvoIASP is the first European event specifically dedicated to the applications of evolutionary computation (EC) to image analysis and signal processing (IASP) and gives European and non-European researchers in those fields, as well as people from industry, an opportunity to present their latest research, discuss current developments and applications, besides fostering closer future interaction between members of the three scientific communities.

EvoIASP99 , the first edition of the Workshop, was held in Göteborg, Sweden, in May 1999. EvoIASP2000 will be held at Napier University, Edinburgh, UK.

The workshop is sponsored by EvoNet, the Network of Excellence in Evolutionary Computing, and is one of the activities of EvoIASP, the EvoNet working group on Evolutionary Computation in Image Analysis and Signal Processing. It will be part of EvoWorkshops2000 and will be held in conjunction with EuroGP2000 , the European Conference on Genetic Programming (April 15-16), and ICES2000 , the Third International Conference on Evolvable Systems (April 18-19).
These events will take place alongside the Edinburgh International Science Festival .

The workshop will consist of:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


To be defined.
Registration to EvoIASP2000 will include free non-transferable registration to all other EvoWorkshops.
A reduced registration rate will be available for students.


To submit, send your manuscript (max length: 10 A4 pages) to one of the programme co-chairs in PostScript (preferably compressed and uuencoded) BY EMAIL (see addresses below) no later than November 15, 1999. The papers will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the programme committee, of whom at least one from the evolutionary computation community and one from the image analysis or signal processing community. Authors will be notified via email on the results of the review by January 15, 2000. The Workshop Proceedings will be published by Springer in their LNCS series.

The authors of accepted papers will have two weeks to improve their paper on the basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts by February 1, 2000. The papers accepted will appear in the workshop proceedings which will be available at the workshop.

A Best Paper Award will be offered to the author(s) of the most original and innovative paper.
