EvoIASP2001 - Call for papers

Third European Workshop on Evolutionary Computation in Image Analysis and Signal Processing

EvoIASP is 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.

The first editions of the Workshop were held in Goteborg, Sweden, in May 1999 and in Edinburgh, UK, in April 2000. EvoIASP2001 will be held on Lake Como, close to Milan, Italy.

The workshop is sponsored by EvoNet, the Network of Excellence in Evolutionary Computing, and is one of the activities of EvoIASP, the EvoNet working group on Evolutionary Computation for Image Analysis and Signal Processing. It will be part of EvoWorkshops2001 and will be held in conjunction with EuroGP2001, the European Conference on Genetic Programming.

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,
  • financial time series analysis by means of EC techniques.

Local chairs


To submit, send your manuscript (max length 10 A4 pages, Postscript format, preferably compressed and uuencoded) to the by email to the EvoIASP chair (see below) no later than November 16, 2000. The papers will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the programme committee, of whom at least one from the evolutionary computation community and one from the image analysis or signal processing community. Authors will be notified via email on the results of the review by December 20, 2000.

The authors of accepted papers will be asked to improve their paper on the basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts by January 25, 2001.

Papers will appear in the EvoWorkshops2001 proceedings to be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series, formatting instructions for which can be found at As with previous years the proceedings will be published both in book form and electronically. Therefore accepted camera ready papers must be accompanied by electronic (machine readable) source documents.

By submitting a camera-ready paper, the author(s) agree that at least one author will attend and present each accepted paper at the workshop.

A Best Paper Award will be offered to the author(s) of the most original and innovative paper.
