Overview

Evolutionary computation (EC) has been the fastest-growing and probably most active sub-field of soft computing in the last decade.
Despite a significant presence of Italian researchers in European and International research projects and conferences on EC, no event dedicated to the general field of EC had ever been organized in Italy before last year's First Italian Workshop on Evolutionary Computation (GSICE 2005) which has recorded a large success.
This year, the GSICE workshop will be held concurrently with the Third Italian Workshop on Artificial Life (WIVA 3, 12-15 September 2006) in the wonderful town of Siena. Despite the workshop focus on national activity, contributions from researchers from any country are welcome!
The principal aims with which this event is organized are: The expected audience will therefore be composed of researchers and students who are already working in the field, but also of representatives of industry and everybody who is interested in approaching evolutionary computation from the point of view of both basic research and applications.
