EVOLVE -- A Bridge Between Probability, Set Oriented Numerics,
and Evolutionary Computation

August 07-09, 2012, Mexico City, Mexico

Extended abstracts: published on CD-ROM (provided with ISSN and ISBN)

Scope of the EVOLVE

The massive use and large applicability spectrum of evolutionary
algorithms for real-life applications determined the need of
establishing solid theoretical grounds. Only to offer a few examples,
one may consider mathematical objects th at are sometimes difficult
and/or costly to calculate. At the same time, acknowledged new results
show that evolutionary computation can provide in some cases good and
fast estimators of these quantities. Similarly, the handling of large
quantities of data may require the use of distributed environments
where the probability of failure and the stability of the algorithms
may need to be addressed. What is more, common practice confirms in
many cases that theory based results have the advantage of ensuring
performance guarantee factors for evolutionary algorithms in areas as
diverse as optimization, bio-informatics or robotics.

The aim of the EVOLVE is to build a bridge between probability,
statistics, set oriented numerics and evolutionary computing, as to
identify new common and challenging research aspects. The conference
is also intended to foster a growing interest for robust and efficient
methods with a sound theoretical background. EVOLVE is intended to
unify theory-inspired methods and cutting-edge techniques ensuring
performance guarantee factors. By gathering researchers with
different backgrounds, ranging from computer science to mathematics,
statistics and physics, to name just a few, a unified view and
vocabulary can emerge where the theoretical advancements may echo in
different domains.

Summarizing, the EVOLVE focuses on challenging aspects arising at the
passage from theory to new paradigms and aims to provide a unified
view while raising questions related to reliability, performance
guarantees and modeling.
