The 13th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimisation

EvoCOP is a multidisciplinary conference that brings together researchers working on metaheuristics that are used to solve difficult combinatorial optimization problems appearing in various industrial, economic, and scientific domains. Prominent examples of metaheuristics include: evolutionary algorithms, simulated annealing, tabu search, scatter search and path relinking, memetic algorithms, ant colony and bee colony optimization, particle swarm optimization, variable neighbourhood search, iterated local search, greedy randomized adaptive search procedures, estimation of distribution algorithms, and hyperheuristics. Successfully solved problems include scheduling, timetabling, network design, transportation and distribution problems, vehicle routing, travelling salesman, graph problems, satisfiability, energy optimization problems, packing problems, planning problems, and general mixed integer programming.

Accepted Papers

The EvoCOP 2013 conference will be held in Vienna, Austria. The conference will be held in conjunction with EuroGP (the 16th European Conference on Genetic Programming), EvoBIO (the 11th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Mining in Computational Biology), EvoMUSART (11th European conference on evolutionary and biologically inspired music, sound, art and design) and EvoAPPS (specialist events on a range of evolutionary computation topics and applications), in a joint event collectively known as EvoStar.

Areas of Interest and Contributions

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


Publication Details

All accepted papers will be presented orally at the conference and printed in the proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS series (see LNCS volumes 2037, 2279, 2611, 3004, 3448, 3906, 4446, 4972, 5482, 6022, 6622, and 7245 for the previous proceedings).

Submission Detail

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, attend the conference and present the work.

The reviewing process will be double-blind, please omit information about the authors in the submitted paper. Submit your manuscript in Springer LNCS format.
