Call for Papers

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 and to 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 was held in Edinburgh, UK, in April 2000.

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. The workshop will be held in conjunction with EuroGP2001 , the European Conference on Genetic Programming (April 18-20), as part of EvoWorkshops2001 , which will be held on the first day of EuroGP.

The workshop will consist of:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


To submit, send your manuscript (max length: 10 A4 pages) to the programme co-chair in PostScript (preferably compressed and uuencoded) BY EMAIL (see addresses below) no later than November 16, 2000. 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 December 20, 2000.

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 by January 25, 2001. The accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, published by Springer in the LNCS series, that will be available at the workshop.

Formatting instructions, templates etc can be found at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

By submitting a camera-ready paper, the author(s) agree that at least one author will attend and present each accepted paper at the workshop.

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