EvoApplications, the International Conference on the Applications of Evolutionary Computation -formerly known as EvoWorkshops- brings together researchers in applications of Evolutionary Computation and other Nature-inspired techniques.

EvoApplications invites high quality contributions for its 24rd edition, which will be held as part of the EvoStar 2021 event in Seville, Spain, April 2021 and co-located within EvoStar with three related conferences: EuroGP, EvoCOP and EvoMUSART.

The aim of EvoApplications is to create a friendly environment that could lead to the establishment or strengthening of scientific collaborations and exchanges among attendees.

Therefore, EvoApplications solicits high-quality original research papers (including significant work-in-progress) on any aspect of applications of Evolutionary Computation, both to real-world or methodological contexts in which Evolutionary Computation can contribute to pushing the limits of the state of the art beyond the present ones.

We encourage you to submit paper focused on interesting, relevant and original works that are related to all kinds of applications of Evolutionary Computation.

Special Sessions

In addition to regular session, 6 special sessions will be organized on the following topics:

For the forthcoming 2021 edition we seek proposals to organize Special Sessions. All approaches will be welcome, and in particular those that:

  • Introduce new applications that are expected to become hot topics in the near future
  • Create new synergies between Evolutionary Computation and other disciplines
  • Foster the hybridization of EC with other techniques.

Special sessions involving young researchers as co-organizers or participants are encouraged. Prospective Session Chairs should submit a proposal to pacv(at)ugr.es strictly by September 10, indicating:

  • Session title
  • The names and affiliations of the organizers (maximum 2)
  • A short description of the session goals and topics (up to 200 words)
  • A few (around 4) tentative paper titles and their authors

Special sessions will be announced as soon as they are accepted. Upon acceptance, Chairs will be responsible of publicizing the session, updating the session web page and inviting their colleagues to join the special session. All submitted papers will undergo the same high-quality review process as the other papers submitted to the conference. Submission to the proposed sessions will not be a guarantee of acceptance. For questions and enquiries regarding Special Sessions, do not hesitate to contact pacv(at)ugr.es .

Deadline: September 10, 2020

Submission Details

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. Submitted papers require novel and complete research work or interesting preliminary results. Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. The submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The reviewing process will be double-blind, so please omit information about the authors in the submitted paper. Submit your manuscript in Springer LNCS format and provide up to five keywords in your Abstract

Page limit: 16 pages

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. All authors of accepted papers will be given the opportunity to further disseminate their work in poster sessions.
