                                    EvoPar 2014
      Parallel and Distributed Infrastructures 

             Track of EvoApplications, the 17th European Conference on the 
            Applications of Evolutionary Computation.
                            23-25 April 2014, Baeza, Spain
                                 FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS

      EVOPAR:      Track on parallel and distributed Infrastructures

      There is growing interest in running evolutionary computation on Parallel 
      and Distributed Computing Infrastructures. A number of technologies are 
      already available. These include Grid and Cloud Computing, Internet Computing 
      (e.g. SETI@home, Boinc), General Purpose Computation on Graphics Processing 
      Units (GPGPU), multi-core and many-core architectures and supercomputers. 
      Although they are routinely used for running computing intensive applications, 
      considerable skill is required to get the best from them.

      The experimenter has to consider scheduling, porting of applications, 
      communication topologies, new parallel models and architectures, cache and 
      memory management optimization, preemptive multitasking and simultaneous multi 
      threading and even energy consumption. Also, the experimenter may need to change 
      their evolutionary algorithm to fully exploit these new tools.

      At EvoPar 2013 scientists and engineers gathered to share and exchange their 
      experiences, discuss challenges, and report state-of-the-art and in-progress 
      research on all aspects of the application of evolutionary algorithms for 
      improving parallel architectures and distributed computing Infrastructures. 

      EvoPAR will assist the two-way flow of ideas between the parallel computing 
      community and the EC community. EvoPar 2014 will be a new, and hopefully improved 
      edition, with similar scope.


      The topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
          -Parallel implementation of evolutionary algorithms.
          -Optimisation of Parallel architectures by means of EAs.
          -Hardware implementation of EAs, including but not limited to Field 
      Programmable Gate Arrays.
          -GP-GPU optimization.
          -Improving Scheduling techniques for P2P and Grid Systems. 
      Improving Scheduling techniques for running distributed EAs.
          -Improving Fault tolerance techniques for distributed systems and 
      Distributed EAs.  Studying capabilities for coping with failures.
          -Analytical modelling and performance evaluation of Parallel and Distributed 
      Infrastructures when running EAs.
          -Improvement in system performance through optimisation and tuning.
          -Case studies showing the role of Parallel and Distributed Infrastructures 
      in conjunction with Distributed EAs when solving hard real-life problems.
          -Volunteer computing.
          -EAs on the Cloud.

      The proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in 
      Computer Science series.

      ***A Special Issue in a JCR Journal will be also published including extensions 
      of best papers published at EvoPar***


      Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. Submissions
      will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program
      committee. The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their
      papers 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 and attend the conference and present
      the work.

      The reviewing process will be double-blind. Manuscript should be
      submitted in Springer LNCS format.
