EvoLEARN2001 - Call for papers

First European Workshop on Evolutionary Learning

Machine Learning plays an important role in the development of autonomous systems capable of tackling complex real world problems. Evolutionary Computation also represents an important approach to tackle such problems. A number of methods in the literature combine both Machine Learning and Evolutionary Computation techniques in an attempt to exploit the advantages of both paradigms.

The aim of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for the people interested in algorithms which "learn through evolution" to share ideas, discuss the current state of the research, and to discuss the future directions of this particular area of Evolutionary Computation.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Methodological issues in evolutionary learning (e.g., generalisation, scalability, computational complexity, etc.)
  • Representation issues in evolutionary learning
  • Interactions between learning and evolution
  • Comparison between evolutionary learning and other learning approaches
  • Adaptive learning agent based systems (architecture, properties, etc.)
  • Benefits of adaptive/learning agents over agents with fixed behavior
  • Developing learning and evolving strategies for environments with cooperative agents
  • Learning Classifier Systems
  • Artificial Immune Systems
  • Evolutionary Robotics
  • Evolutionary Economics
  • Evolutionary Data Mining

EvoWorkshops chair

Local chairs


To submit, send your manuscript (max length 6 A4 pages, Postscript format) by email to no later than November 16, 2000. If submitting by post send 4 paper copies to the programme chair at the address below.The papers will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the programme committee. 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.
