      First European Workshop on
      Nature Inspired Methods for Environmental Issues

      The workshop EvoEnvironment is devoted to the use of nature inspired methods
      for environmental issues. The goal of this workshop is to bring
      researchers from a variety of different areas, computer scientists,
      engineers, biologists, chemists - all in concern about the environment -
      together for an exchange of ideas. We invite submissions
      on many diverse topics such as waste management, sewage treatment,
      control of greenhouse gas emissions, biodegradation of materials,
      efficient energy use or use of renewable energies to name but a few.
      Nature inspired methods include all aspects of evolutionary
      computation such as genetic algorithms, evolution strategies, genetic
      programming, ant algorithms, or particle swarm systems. Researchers
      working with bio-inspired systems or bionic systems, i.e. systems
      developed by looking at how nature has solved a problem are also encouraged
      to submit their work.

      Accepted papers will be published in a volume of the Springer Lecture
      Notes in Computer Science together with papers from other workshops
      of the EvoStar conference.

      The EvoStar conference is always a very enjoyable event offering good
      opportunities for networking, informal contact, exchange of ideas and
      discussions with fellow researchers in a friendly and relaxed setting.

      Web address: http://www.evostar.org

      High quality papers are sought on topics related to environmental issues
      using nature inspired methods, ranging from theoretical work to
      innovative applications in the context of

      * Waste management
      * Sewage treatment
      * Control of greenhouse gas emissions
      * Reduction of energy usage
      * Pollution prevention
      * Biodegradation of materials
      * Use of renewable energy technologies such as solar power,
      wind power, biomass, biofuels, geothermal energy
      * Soft energy technology
      * Efficient energy use
      * Low energy housing, zero energy buildings
      * Empirical studies comparing different methods
      * Species extinction
      * Intensive Farming

      Important dates:

      - Submission deadline: 5 November 2008
      - Notification of acceptance: TBD
      - Camera-ready manuscript: TBD
      - EvoEnvironment: 15-17 April 2009

      Submission requirements:

      - Submissions (no longer than 10 pages) must be made through the
      conference management software before 5 November 2008.
      - Since the review process is double-blind the paper must not contain
      any references that would identify the authors.
      - The submitted material has to be substantially new research which
      has not been published previously.
      - The paper has to be formatted according to LNCS style guidelines.
      (See ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/tex/latex/llncs/latex2e/llncs2e.zip)
      - By submitting a paper, the authors agree that, if their paper is
      accepted, they will prepare a camera-ready version in accordance with
      the changes requested by the reviewers by the deadline for camera-ready
      papers. They also agree that at least one author will register for the
      conference no later than the early registration deadline if their paper is
      accepted and at least one author will attend the conference and present
      the paper.
