Evolutionary computation in image analysis and signal processing

Evolutionary algorithms have been shown to be tools which can be used effectively in the development of systems (software or hardware) for image analysis and signal processing in complex domains of high industrial and social relevance.

evoiasp has been the first European event specifically dedicated to the applications of evolutionary computation (EC) to image analysis and signal processing (IASP) and gives European and non-European researchers in those fields, as well as people from industry, an opportunity to present their latest research and to discuss current developments and applications, besides fostering closer future interaction between members of the three scientific communities.

In 2012, evoiasp will reach its fourteenth edition, after being held in Gothenburg, Sweden (1999), Edinburgh, UK (2000), Como, Italy (2001), Kinsale, Ireland (2002), Colchester, UK (2003), Coimbra, Portugal (2004), Lausanne, Switzerland (2005), Budapest, Hungary (2006), Valencia, Spain (2007), Naples, Italy (2008), and Tuebingen, Germany (2009), Istanbul (2010).

evoiasp is part of evoapplications 2012, the Conference on Applications of Evolutionary Computation, one of the events which will take place under the common name of evo* 2012.

Areas of Interest and Contributions

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • applications of evolutionary computation to real-life IASP problems
  • evolvable vision and signal processing hardware
  • evolutionary pattern recognition
  • hybrid architectures for machine vision and signal processing including evolutionary components
  • theoretical developments
  • comparisons between different evolutionary techniques and between evolutionary and non-evolutionary techniques in IASP applications
  • time series analysis by means of EC techniques

Publication Details

Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of evo*, published in a volume of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science, which will be available at the Conference.

Submission Details

Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. The submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. 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.

The reviewing process will be double-blind, please omit information about the authors in the submitted paper. Submit your manuscript in Springer LNCS format.
