      EvoSTOC at EVO*: "Evolutionary Algorithms in Stochastic and Dynamic
      Environments"

      Many real-world optimisation problems are characterised by some type of
      uncertainty that needs to be accounted for by the algorithm used to
      solve the problem. These uncertainties include noise (noisy
      optimisation), approximations (surrogate-assisted optimisation),
      dynamics (dynamic optimisation problems) as well as the requirement for
      robust solutions (robust optimisation). Dealing with these uncertainties
      has become increasingly popular in evolutionary computation in recent
      years and a variety of new techniques have been proposed. The objective
      of EvoSTOC is to foster interest in nature-inspired optimisation for
      stochastic and dynamic environments and to provide an opportunity for
      researchers to meet and to present and discuss the state-of-the-art in
      the field. EvoSTOC accepts contributions, both empirical and theoretical
      in nature, for any work relating to nature-inspired techniques applied
      to a domain characterised by one or more types of uncertainty.


      Areas of Interest and Contributions

      Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, any of the following
      in the realm of nature-inspired computation:

      - noisy fitness functions
      - fitness approximations / surrogate-assisted optimisation
      - robust solutions
      - dynamic optimisation problems
      - dynamic constrained optimisation problems
      - dynamic multi-objective optimisation problems
      - co-evolutionary domains
      - real-world applications characterised by uncertainty
      - optimisation in (video) games and related domains (e.g., dynamical
      systems)
      - theoretical results (e.g., runtime analysis) for stochastic problems

      Publication Details

      Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of Evo*, published as
      Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

      Submission Details
      Submissions must be novel and original. Submissions will be peer
      reviewed by at least three members of the program committee and authors
      of accepted papers are required to address the reviewer's comments to
      produce a camera-ready version of their manuscripts. At least one author
      of each accepted paper must register for the conference and attend the
      conference to present their work.
      The reviewing process will be double-blind and any information that may
      identify the authors should be removed from the initial submission. The
      page limit is 10 pages.

              **** TOPICS OF INTEREST ****

               

              Many real-world optimisation problems are characterised by some types of uncertainty that need to be accounted for by the algorithms used to solve the problems. These uncertainties include noise (noisy optimisation), approximations (surrogate-assisted optimisation), dynamics (dynamic/online optimisation problems) as well as the requirements for robust solutions (robust optimisation). Dealing with these uncertainties has become increasingly popular in stochastic optimisation in recent years and a variety of new techniques have been proposed. The objective of EvoSTOC is to foster interest in metaheuristics and stochastic optimisation for stochastic and dynamic environments and to provide an opportunity for researchers to meet and to present and discuss the state-of-the-arts in the field. EvoSTOC accepts contributions, both empirical and theoretical in nature, for any work relating to nature-inspired, metaheuristics and stochastic techniques applied to a domain characterised by one or more types of uncertainty.

               

               

               

              Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, any of the followings in the realm of nature-inspired, metaheuristics and stochastic computation:

               

              noisy fitness functions

               

              fitness approximations / surrogate-assisted optimisation

               

              robust solutions and robust optimisation

               

              dynamic optimisation problems

               

              dynamic constrained optimisation problems

              data analysis in dynamic environments

               

              dynamic and robust optimisation benchmark problems

               

              real-world applications characterised by uncertainty and online real-world applications

               

              the applications of nature-inspired, metaheuristics and stochastic optimisation on vulnerability and risk analysis/management

               

              the applications of nature-inspired, metaheuristics and stochastic optimisation on reliability and robustness of real-world systems

                    EvoSTOC 2014 - Evolutionary Algorithms in Stochastic and Dynamic Environments
                    Track of EvoApplications, the 16th European Conference on the Applications of Evolutionary Computation

                    Part of Evo* 2014

                    April 2014, Granada, Spain

                    evo*: http://www.evostar.org
                    evoSTOC: http://www.evostar.org/cfpEvoSTOC.html

                    *********************************************************************

                    Following the success of previous events and the importance of the field of evolutionary and bio-inspired computation for dynamic optimization problems, the EvoSTOC 2014 will run its 11th edition as a track of EvoApplications, the 17th European Conference on the Applications of Evolutionary and bio-inspired Computation.


                    **** PUBLICATION DETAILS ****

                    Submissions will be rigorously reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Accepted papers will be presented orally at the event and included in the EvoApplications proceedings, published by Springer Verlag in a dedicated volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. The submissions will be peer reviewed. The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the basis of the reviewers’ comments and will be asked to send a camera-ready version of their manuscripts. At least one author of each accepted work has to register for the conference and attend the conference and present the work.



                    **** TOPICS OF INTEREST ****

                    Many real-world optimisation problems are characterised by some types of uncertainty that need to be accounted for by the algorithms used to solve the problems. These uncertainties include noise (noisy optimisation), approximations (surrogate-assisted optimisation), dynamics (dynamic/online optimisation problems) as well as the requirements for robust solutions (robust optimisation). Dealing with these uncertainties has become increasingly popular in stochastic optimisation in recent years and a variety of new techniques have been proposed. The objective of EvoSTOC is to foster interest in metaheuristics and stochastic optimisation for stochastic and dynamic environments and to provide an opportunity for researchers to meet and to present and discuss the state-of-the-arts in the field. EvoSTOC accepts contributions, both empirical and theoretical in nature, for any work relating to nature-inspired, metaheuristics and stochastic techniques applied to a domain characterised by one or more types of uncertainty.



                    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, any of the followings in the realm of nature-inspired, metaheuristics and stochastic computation:
                     - noisy fitness functions
                     - fitness approximations / surrogate-assisted optimisation
                     - robust solutions and robust optimisation
                     - dynamic optimisation problems
                     - dynamic constrained optimisation problems
                     - dynamic multi-objective optimisation problem s
                     - co-evolutionary domains
                     - online optimisation
                     - online learning
                     - data analysis in dynamic environments
                     - dynamic and robust optimisation benchmark problems
                     - real-world applications characterised by uncertainty and online real-world applications
                     - the applications of nature-inspired, metaheuristics and stochastic optimisation on vulnerability and risk analysis/management
                     - the applications of nature-inspired, metaheuristics and stochastic optimisation on reliability and robustness of real-world systems
                     - optimisation in (video) games and related domains (e.g., dynamical systems)
                     - theoretical results (e.g., runtime analysis) for stochastic problems
