      Call for Papers

      Analysis of Genetic Representations and Operators
      (AGRO 2007)
      http://agro2007.dei.uc.pt


      A Special Session of the
      2007 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation
      (CEC 2007)
      Singapore, September 25-28, 2007
      http://www.cec2007.org


      Motivation:

      This Special session will focus on the analysis and design of Genetic
      Representations and Operators in Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs).
      In the past few years, EAs have been successfully applied to a large number
      of optimization problems. Nevertheless, most of the research deals with
      applying an EA to a new problem or applying a new EA to an existing one. In
      most of these studies, the focus is on showing how the EA was able to solve
      the problem (or find better solutions) and not why it was able to solve it.
      The choice of a genetic representation and the associated operators cannot
      be made independently of each other as both of them are crucial to the
      efficiency of the optimisation algorithm. The question whether a certain
      representation leads to better performing EAs than an alternative
      representation (and the respective operators) is crucial to our
      understanding on why an EA can solve the problem successfully.


      Topics of Interest:

      - Representation techniques and evolutionary operators;
      - Theoretical and empirical properties of representations and/or operators;
      - Predictive performance measures;
      - Search space analysis;
      - Promising directions for future research.


      Important Dates:

      Paper Submission: March 15, 2007
      Decision Notification: May 15, 2007
      Camera-ready Submission: June 15, 2007


      Paper Submission:

      Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard format of regular
      papers specified in CEC2007 and be restricted to a maximum of 8 pages.
      Paper submission is strictly only PDF format and online through the regular
      CEC2007 submission website. Special session papers will be treated in the
      same way as regular papers and included in the conference proceedings.


      Best of AGRO 2007:

      Special Issue from the International Journal on Natural Computing
      Improved versions of selected papers accepted for presentation at
      AGRO-2007 will be invited for submission to a Special Issue of the
      International Journal on Natural Computing (Springer).
