EvoPAR Logo


There is growing interest in running evolutionary computation on Parallel and Distributed Computing Infrastructures. A number of technologies are already available. These include Grid and Cloud Computing, Internet Computing (e.g. SETI@home, boinc), General Purpose Computation on Graphics Processing Units (GPGPU), multi-core and many-core architectures and supercomputers. Although they are routinely used for running computing intensive applications, considerable skill is required to get the best from them. The experimenter has to consider scheduling, porting of applications, communication topologies, new parallel models and architectures, cache and memory management optimization, preemptive multitasking and simultaneous multi threading and even energy consumption. Also, the experimenter may need to change their evolutionary algorithm to fully exploit these new tools.

At EvoPAR 2012 scientists and engineers gathered to share and exchange their experiences, discuss challenges, and report state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of the application of evolutionary algorithms for improving parallel architectures and distributed computing Infrastructures. EvoPAR will assist the two-way flow of ideas between the parallel computing community and the EC community. EvoPAR 2013 will be a new, and hopefully improved edition, with similar scope.
