PPSN 2008 : 10th International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving From Nature
Conference Series : Parallel Problem Solving from Nature
Call For Papers
The Tenth International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature
(PPSN X) will be held in Dortmund, Germany on 13-17 September 2008. This
meeting will bring together an international community from academia, government,
and industry interested in algorithms suggested by the unifying theme
of natural computing.
Natural Computing is the study of computational systems that use ideas and get
inspiration from natural systems, including biological, ecological, physical,
chemical, and social systems. It is a fast growing interdisciplinary field in which
a range of techniques and methods are studied for dealing with large, complex,
and dynamic problems with various sources of potential uncertainties.
PPSN X will showcase a wide range of topics in Natural Computing including,
but not restricted to: Evolutionary Computation, Quantum Computation, Molecular
Computation, Neural Computation, Artificial Life, Swarm Intelligence,
Artificial Ant Systems, Artificial Immune Systems, Self-Organizing Systems,
Emergent Behaviors, and Applications to Real-World Problems.
WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS
As usual there will be workshops (on Sept. 13) and tutorials (on Sept. 14).
Please watch the conference homepage for up-to-date news.
Following the now well-established tradition of PPSN conferences, all accepted
papers will be presented during small poster sessions of about 16 papers. Each
session will contain papers from a wide variety of topics, and will begin by a
plenary quick overview of all papers in that session by a major researcher in the
field. Past experiences have shown that such presentation format led to more
interactions between participants and to a deeper understanding of the papers.
All accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings.
Researchers are invited to submit original work in the field of natural computing
as papers of not more than 10 pages. Authors are encouraged to submit their
papers in LaTeX. Papers must be submitted in Springer Verlag�??s LNCS style
through the conference homepage http://www.ppsn2008.org
