      Call for Papers

      1st Portuguese Workshop
      Artificial Life and Evolutionary Algorithms - ALEA'03

      part of the
      Portuguese Conference on Artificial Intelligence (EPIA'03)
      4th-7th December 2003
      Beja, Portugal

      Aims and Scope
      Artificial Life(AL) and Evolutionary Algorithms(EA) have often been shown
      to be effective in solving difficult complex problems appearing in various
      industrial, economical, and scientific domains. ALEA'03 is the first
      international event occurring in Portugal specifically dedicated both to
      the theory and application of AL and EA. This workshop will give
      researchers a good opportunity to present their latest research and to
      discuss current developments and applications, besides stimulating closer
      future interaction between members of these scientific communities. ALEA'03
      wants to bring together outstanding international researchers in these
      fields for the first time in Portugal. The workshop will consist of an
      invited talk, oral presentations and poster sessions. The best accepted
      papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS
      series. The other accepted papers and the posters will have a one page
      abstract in the same proceedings book.
      The workshop is sponsored by APPIA, the Portuguese Association for
      Artificial Intelligence. It will be part of a set of Workshops that,
      together, will constitute the Portuguese Conference on Artifical
      Intelligence (EPIA'03).

      General topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
      - Genetic Algorithms
      - Evolutionary Strategies
      - Evolutionary Programming
      - Genetic Programming
      - Classifier Systems
      - Evolutionary Robotics
      - Parallel Evolutionary Algorithms
      - Evolution Dynamics
      - Artificial Immune System
      - Ant Colonies
      - Cultural Algorithms
      - (Particle) Swarm Algorithms

      Important Dates
      May, 18: Draft papers due
      July, 20: Notification of acceptance
      September, 13 : Camera-Ready papers due
      4th-7th December : ALEA'03 International Workshop

      Submission Instructions
      Submissions must follow the guidelines specified in the main web page of
      the conference (see http://www.di.uevora.pt/epia03/). In particular , the
      reviewing process is double blind. Authors should remove names from the
      submitted papers, and should take reasonable care that their identity is
      disguised. References to own work can be included in the paper, but should
      be referred to in the third person.
      Authors should also prepare their submissions according with the
      instructions given given by Springer-Verlag in
      Even if the submissions can be made in PDF (preferable) or PS, we encourage
      authors to prepare their papers in TEX ou because this will be the only
      acceptable source formats for the camera ready final versions.
