      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.

            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

              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 problems

              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
