      Came across this. Seems to beg for comparable Evolutionary Literature - programs guaranteed to produce a Hollywood blockbuster or a chick-lit champion (or a major new school of literary criticism) on the 10,000th +  iteration. Is anyone doing that?

      EvoMUSART 2007

      5th European Workshop on Evolutionary Music and Art

      11-13 April, 2007, Valencia, Spain

      EVOSTAR     http://www.evostar.org/
      EVOMUSART      http://evonet.lri.fr/TikiWiki/tiki-index.php?page=EvoMUSART

      NEW: EVOMUSART EXHIBITION "ArtEscapes"     

      The use of biological inspired techniques for the development of artistic
      systems is a recent, exciting and significant area of research. There is a
      growing interest in the application of these techniques in fields such as:
      visual art and music generation, analysis, and interpretation; sound
      synthesis; architecture; video; and design.

      EvoMUSART 2007 is the fifth workshop of the EvoNet working group on
      Evolutionary Music and Art. Following the success of previous events
      and the growth of interest in the field, the main goal of EvoMUSART
      2007 is to bring together researchers who are using biological
      inspired techniques for artistic tasks, providing the opportunity to
      promote, present and discuss ongoing work in the area.

      The workshop will be held from 11-13 April, 2007 in Valencia, Spain,
      as part of the Evo* event.

      The event includes the exhibition "ArtEscapes: Variations of Life in the
      Media Arts", (http://evonet.lri.fr/TikiWiki/tiki-index.php?page=ArtEscapes)
      giving an opportunity for the presentation of evolutionary
      art and music. The submission of art works for the exhibition session
      is independent from the submission of papers.

      Accepted papers will be presented orally at the workshop and included
      in the EvoWorkshops proceedings, published by Springer Verlag in the
      Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

      The papers should concern the use of biological inspired techniques -
      e.g. Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Life, Swarm Intelligence,
      etc. - in the scope of the generation, analysis and interpretation of
      art, music, design, architecture and other artistic fields. Topics of
      interest include, but are not limited to:

      - Generation
          o Biological Inspired Art - Systems that create drawings, images,
          animations, sculptures, poetry, text, etc.;
          o Biological Inspired Music - Systems that create musical pieces,
          sounds, instruments, voices, etc.;
          o Robotic Based Evolutionary Art and Music;
          o Other related generative techniques;
      - Theory
          o Computational Aesthetics, Emotional Response, Surprise, Novelty;
          o Representation techniques;
          o Surveys of the current state-of-the-art in the area; identification
            of weaknesses and strengths; comparative analysis and classification;
          o Validation methodologies;
          o Studies on the applicability of these techniques to related areas;
          o New models designed to promote the creative potential of biological
            inspired computation;
      - Computer Aided Creativity
          o Systems in which biological inspired computation is used to promote
            the creativity of a human user;
          o New ways of integrating the user in the evolutionary cycle;
          o Analysis and evaluation of: the artistic potential of biological
            inspired art and music; the artistic processes inherent to these
            approaches; the resulting artifacts;
          o Collaborative distributed artificial art environments;
      - Automation
          o Techniques for automatic fitness assignment;
          o Systems in which an analysis or interpretation of the artworks is
            used in conjunction with biological inspired techniques to produce
            novel objects;
          o Systems that resort to biological inspired computation to perform
            the analysis of image, music, sound, sculpture, or some other types
            of artistic object;

      Submit your manuscript, at most 10 A4 pages long, in Springer LNCS
      format (instructions downloadable from
      no later than November 1, 2006.

      The papers will be peer reviewed by at least three members of
      the program committee. Authors will be notified via email on the
      results of the review by December 15, 2006.

      The reviewing process is double blind.
      Authors should remove their names from submitted papers, and avoid statements
      and references that would identify the authors.
      Papers must be submitted using the conference management software.
      Please follow the instructions in:

      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, along with text sources and
      pictures, by January 8, 2007. The accepted papers will appear in the
      workshop proceedings, published in Springer LNCS Series, which will be
      available at the workshop.
