      WORKSHOP ON EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION SOFTWARE SYSTEMS (EvoSoft)

      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

      Submission deadline for this workshop: March 28th, 2013


      DESCRIPTION & TOPICS:
      Evolutionary computation (EC) methods are applied in many different
      domains. Therefore soundly engineered, reusable, flexible, user-friendly,
      and interoperable software systems are more than ever required to bridge
      the gap between theoretical research and practical application. However,
      due to the heterogeneity of the application domains and the large number
      of EC methods, the development of such systems is both, time consuming and
      complex. Consequently many EC researchers still implement individual and
      highly specialized software which is often developed from scratch,
      concentrates on a specific research question, and does not follow state of
      the art software engineering practices. By this means the chance to reuse
      existing systems and to provide systems for others to build their work on
      is not sufficiently seized within the EC community. In many cases the
      developed systems are not even publicly released, which makes the
      comparability and traceability of research results very hard.

      This workshop enables EC researchers to exchange their ideas on how to
      develop and apply generic and reusable EC software systems and to present
      open and freely available solutions on which others can build their work
      on. Furthermore, the workshop should help to identify common efforts in
      the development of EC software systems and should highlight cooperation
      potentials and synergies between different research groups. It
      concentrates on the importance of high-quality software systems and
      professional software engineering in the field of EC and provides a
      platform for EC researchers to discuss the following and other related
      topics:

      * development and application of generic and reusable EC software systems
      * architectural and design patterns for EC software systems
      * software modeling of EC algorithms and problems
      * open-source EC software systems
      * expandability, interoperability, and standardization
      * comparability and traceability of research results
      * graphical user interfaces and visualization
      * comprehensive statistical and graphical results analysis
      * parallelism and performance
      * usability and automation
      * comparison and evaluation of EC software systems

        Please visit workshop details at:

        http://www.symbolicregression.com/?q=srm-gecco-2013


        We are glad to announce that the Fifth Symbolic Regression workshop will take place at the GECCO-2013 conference<http://www.sigevo.org/gecco-2013/> in Amsterdam! Because submissions for the conference tracks are now closed, submitting an article to Symbolic regression workshop is a great way to share your results at the coming GECCO conference and solicit immediate feedback from the experts and symbolic regression enthusiasts!

        We solicit strong results on ensemble-based modeling in symbolic regression, constructive comparisons of symbolic and numeric methods, discussions on algorithm complexity, model representation, and model management.

        Workshop paper submission deadline is March 28, 2013!

        With questions please, contact Katya Vladislavleva<mailto:katya@...?Subject=SRM-2013%20Question> or Steven Gustafson<mailto:steven.gustafson@...?Subject=SRM-2013%20Question>. If you have an important result, but you want to share it in a talk without a paper - please, contact us.
