INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION

THE FOURTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
ON PARALLEL PROBLEM SOLVING FROM NATURE
(PPSN IV)
BERLIN, GERMANY, SEPTEMBER 22 - 26, 1996
SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT
CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

The International Conference on Evolutionary Computation - The Fourth
International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature
(PPSN IV) will be held in Berlin, Germany between September 22 - 26,
1996. This meeting will bring together an international community from
academia, government and industry interested in algorithms suggested
by the unifying theme of natural computation.

Natural computation is a common name for the design, theoretical and
empirical understanding of algorithms gleaned from nature.
Characteristic for natural computation is the metaphorical use of
concepts, principles and mechanisms underlying natural systems.
Examples are genetic algorithms, evolutionary programming and
evolution strategies inspired by the evolutionary processes of
mutation, recombination, and natural selection in biology, simulated
annealing inspired by many-particle systems in physics, growth
processes in nature and economics and algorithms inspired by
multi-cellular systems like neural and immune networks.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
evolution strategies, evolutionary programming, genetic algorithms
and classifier systems, other forms of evolutionary computation,
simulated annealing, neural and immune networks, machine learning
and optimization using these methods, their relations to other
learning paradigms, and mathematical description of their behavior.

The application of these techniques to solve real-world problems in
manufacturing, design, planning, and engineering is emphasized.
