The Leading European Event on Bio-Inspired Computation. Amsterdam. 19-21 April 2017.

Call for papers:

EvoSET 2017

Nature-inspired algorithms in Software Engineering and Testing

Important notice

Due to a large number of request for late submissions, the EvoStar submission sites will stay open until this Tuesday 15 November 23:59:59 SST, after which no further submissions will be accepted. Authors who have already submitted, can update their work until this time.

The recipients of the "EvoAPPLICATIONS Best Paper Awards" will be invited to submit an extended version of their works to a special issue of Memetic Computing.

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:

  • Requirements engineering
  • Automated design and development of software
  • Search-based software engineering
  • Software reliability, testing and security
  • Software maintenance and self-repair
  • Software effort estimation and fault prediction
  • Genetic improvement of software
  • Real world applications of the above
