      EvoNUM 2013 - the track on Bio-inspired algorithms for continuous
      parameter optimisation
      part of the Evo* 2013 EvoApplications Conference

      Vienna, Austria, 3-5 April 2013

      Submission deadline: 1st November 2012


      Many engineering problems of both theoretical and practical interest
      involve choosing the best configuration of a set of parameters to
      achieve a specified objective. Numerical optimisation refers to the
      case when these parameters take continuous real values, as opposed to
      combinatorial optimisation, which deals with discrete values. Examples
      include designing production processes for maximum efficiency, optimal
      parameter adjustment for controllers and many others. EvoNUM focuses
      on such problems.

      We seek high quality papers involving the application of bio-inspired
      algorithms (genetic algorithms, genetic programming, evolution
      strategies, differential evolution, particle swarm optimization,
      evolutionary programming, simulated annealing... and their hybrids) to
      continuous optimisation problems in engineering. We also welcome
      cross-fertilisation between Nature-inspired algorithms and more
      classical numerical optimisation algorithms.

      EvoNUM deals with engineering applications where continuous parameters
      or functions have to be optimised, in fields such as control,
      chemistry, agriculture, electricity, building and construction,
      energy, aerospace engineering, design optimisation...

      The evoNUM track within the EvoApplications Conference will be part
      of Evo* 2013, a joint event which will also incorporate EuroGP 2013,
      the 16th European Conference on Genetic Programming, EvoCOP 2013,
      the 13th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in
      Combinatorial Optimisation, EvoBIO 2013, the 11th Conference on
      Evolutionary Bioinformatics, and EvoMUSART 2013, the 2nd
      International Conference on Evolutionary and Biologically Inspired
      Music, Sound, Art and Design.

      __Topics of Interest__

      EvoNUM aims to cover areas that include but are not limited to:
      - Local learning of parameters
      - Mechanisms to incorporate constraints
      - Theoretical developments
      - Performance measures and performance analysis
      - Benchmark problems

      __Submission details__

      Submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines
      and must not be longer than 10 pages. Accepted papers will appear
      in the proceedings of Evo*, published in a volume of the Springer
      Lecture Notes in Computer Science, which will be available at the
      For more details please refer to the Evo* page, www.evostar.org
