Call for papers

EA'01 is the 5th Conference on Evolutionary Computation organized in France. Following EA'94 in Toulouse, EA'95 in Brest, EA'97 in Nîmes, and EA'99 in Dunkerque, the Conference will be held in Le Creusot, hosted by the Université de Bourgogne.

As usual, the conference will benefit from its specificity: keeping away from Paris will allow for both very low registration fees (less than 150 EUROS) and the discovery of another French region, renowned for its gastronomy and its very famous wines: Burgundy.

Authors are invited to present original work relevant to simulated evolution, including but not limited to:

  • Evolutionary Optimization and Learning,
  • Evolutionary Optimization and Learning,
  • Artificial Life,
  • Population Dynamics,
  • Implementation,
  • Real-World Application of evolutionary paradigms.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by three members of the Program Committee.

All accepted papers will be presented at the Conference (single track oral presentation of 20mn with 10mn for questions, and discussion, in order to favour interactions among participants), and published in the conference proceedings, available at the conference. If quality permits, a selection of the

best papers will further be published by an international publisher, as happened for the previous issues (Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science 1063, 1363 and 1829).

Electronic submission of the papers (12 pages maximum in Springer lncs format, i.e. 11pt Times Roman font, 17x25cm text), is strongly encouraged. The use of LaTeX is strongly recommended. A model style file can be obtained in the author kit, where Gill Bates' fans will also find a Word template.

The official language of the Conference is French, but presentations in English are strongly encouraged – French researchers whose English is not yet fluent will find a unique friendly environment to practice their scientific English.

Papers can be submitted in French or English. However, to insure a large international visibility of the presented work, the final revision of the papers accepted for publication in the international volume will need to be written in English.

Deadline for paper submission: May 11th 2001

Notifications of acceptance: July 1st 2001

Final version for conference handouts: September 15th 2001
