Selected EvoApplications papers will be invited to submit to a special issue of the Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines (2016 Impact Factor: 1.514)
We seek both theoretical developments and applications of Computational Intelligence to the design, the development, operation, and maintenance of software, with particular focus on testing for security and reliability. All bio-inspired computational paradigms are welcome, mainly Genetic and Evolutionary Computation, including Multi-Objective Approaches, but also Fuzzy Logic, Intelligent Agent Systems, Neural Networks, Cellular Automata, Artificial Immune Systems, Swarm Intelligence and others, including hybrids.
Topics include but are not limited to:
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.
