      Call for Papers

      Special Session on Evolutionary Computation in
      Dynamic and Uncertain Environments (ECiDUE)
      2006 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation
      Part of 2006 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence
      Vancouver, BC, Canada, July 16 - 21, 2006

      Extended Submission deadline: February 15, 2006


      Many real-world optimization problems are subjected to dynamic and
      uncertain environments that are often impossible to avoid in practice.
      For instance, the fitness function is uncertain or noisy as a result
      of simulation/measurement errors or approximation errors (in the case
      where surrogates are used in place of the computationally expensive
      high fidelity fitness function). In addition, the design variables or
      environmental conditions may also perturb or change over time. For
      these dynamic and uncertain optimization problems, the objective of
      the evolutionary algorithm is no longer to simply locate the global
      optimum solution, but to continuously track the optimum in dynamic
      environments, or to find a robust solution that operates optimally
      in the presence of uncertainties. This poses serious challenges to
      conventional evolutionary algorithms.

      Handling dynamic and uncertain optimization problems in evolutionary
      computation has received an increasing research interests over the
      recent years. A variety of methods have been reported across a broad
      range of application backgrounds. This special session aims at bringing
      researchers from academia and industry together to review the latest
      advances and explore future directions in this field. Topics of interest
      include but are not limited to:

      * Benchmark problems and performance measures
      * Tracking moving optima
      * Dynamic multi-objective optimization
      * Adaptation, learning, and anticipation
      * Handling noisy fitness functions
      * Using fitness approximations
      * Searching for robust optimal solutions
      * Comparative studies
      * Hybrid approaches
      * Theoretical analysis
      * Real-world applications

      Submission procedure:

      Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard format and
      page limit of regular papers specified in CEC2006. Instructions for
      preparing the manuscript are provided at http://www.wcci2006.org
      Submission of manuscripts is strictly only in PDF format and through
      the regular CEC2006 submission website. Special session papers will
      be treated in the same way as regular papers and will included in
      the conference proceedings.
