      THIRD ANNUAL WORKSHOP ON
      Evolutionary Computation for the Automated Design of Algorithms (ECADA-2013)

      to be held as part of the

      2013 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2013)
      July 06-10, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
      Organized by ACM SIGEVO
      http://www.sigevo.org/gecco-2013/

      PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR WORKSHOP: March 28th, 2013

      Workshop URL: http://homepages.dcc.ufmg.br/~glpappa/workshop.html

      --------------------------------------------------------------------
      Although most evolutionary computation techniques are designed to generate specific solutions to a given instance of a problem, some of these techniques can be explored to solve more generic problems. The main objective of this workshop is to discuss evolutionary computation methods for the generation of such generic algorithms and/or heuristics.

      Since these methods, known as hyper-heuristics, operate at a higher level of abstraction, they have the advantage of producing algorithms which can be applied to a class of problems, rather than a solution specifically produced for a single instance of the problem. The application for these methods include data mining, machine learning, optimization, bioinformatics, image processing, economics etc.

      The workshop welcomes original submissions on all aspects of evolutionary computation for designing generic algorithms and heuristics, which include (but are not limited to) the following
      topics and themes:

      - Evolutionary algorithms for designing generic combinatorial optimization algorithms or heuristics
      - Evolutionary algorithms for designing generic machine learning algorithms or heuristics
      - Evolutionary algorithms for designing generic function optimizers
      - Evolutionary algorithms for designing generic algorithms or heuristics for bioinformatics
      - (Meta-level) evolutionary algorithms for designing other (base-level) evolutionary algorithms
      - Empirical comparison of different hyper-heuristics
      - Theoretical analyses of hyper-heuristics
      - Automatic selection of algorithmic building blocks as a pre-processing step for the use of hyper-heuristics
      - Analysis of the trade-off between generality and effectiveness of different heuristics, algorithms or heuristics produced by hyper-heuristics
      - Real-world applications of hyper-heuristics

      ----------------------------------------------------------------------Paper Submission
      ----------------------------------------------------------------------
      Submitted papers should follow the ACM format, and not exceed 8 pages. Please see the GECCO 2013 information for authors for further details. However, note that the review process of the workshop is not double-blind. Hence, authors' information should appear in the paper. All accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and appear in the GECCO workshop volume. Proceedings of the workshop will be published on CD-ROM, and distributed at the conference.

      Papers should be submitted by 28 March, 2013 in PDF format to:
      [jerry.swan –at- cs.stir.ac.uk]
      containing the subject line "GECCO Workshop".
