Evolutionary Computation in Image Analysis, Signal Processing
and Pattern Recognition
Selected EvoApplications papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of the Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines (2016 Impact Factor: 1.514)
Evolutionary algorithms have been shown to be tools which can be used
effectively in the development of systems (software or hardware) for image
analysis, signal processing and pattern recognition in complex domains of
high industrial and social relevance.
The longest-running of all EvoApplications tracks, EvoIASP started in 1999
as a workshop, the first event ever specifically dedicated to the
applications of evolutionary computation to image analysis and signal
processing (IASP), as well as to Pattern Recognition.
EvoIASP aims to offer international 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.
Areas of Interest and Contributions
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- applications of evolutionary computation to real-world image analysis
- signal processing and pattern recognition problems
- evolvable vision and signal processing hardware
- hybrid approaches to machine vision, signal processing and pattern recognition including evolutionary components
- theoretical developments
- comparisons between different evolutionary techniques and between evolutionary and non-evolutionary techniques in image analysis, signal processing and pattern recognition applications
- time series analysis by means of EC techniques
Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of EvoApplications,
published in a volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science,
which will be available at the Conference. Submissions must be original and
not published elsewhere. The submissions will be peer reviewed by at least
three 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 and attend
the conference and present the work.
This year EvoApplications is accepting two kinds of submission: full papers and short papers. Full papers require novel and complete research work and have a limit of 16 pages. Short papers should present complete research or interesting preliminary results and have a limit of 8 pages. Both types of submission will undergo the same double blind review process and all accepted papers will be included in the LNCS proceedings. All authors of accepted papers will be given the opportunity to further disseminate their work in poster sessions.

- Submit your manuscript in Springer
- Please provide up to five keywords in your Abstract
- Page limit: 8 pages (short papers) or 16 pages (full papers).
There are two types of presentation:
- Long talk (20 minutes + 5 min questions). Authors can optionally bring a poster to present at the poster session.
- Short talk (10 minutes, no questions). Authors MUST also bring a poster to present at the poster session.
Short papers are only eligible for short talks. Authors of long papers will be notified in advance of the type of presentation (short/long).
