 Engineering and Real World Applications

 a thematic area of the European Conference on
 the Applications of Evolutionary Computation

 part of the EvoStar event (

 Submission deadline: November 1, 2018


Evolutionary Computation (EC) has established itself as a powerful technique to tackle design, search and optimisation problems in the real-world, with a wide variety of applications in business and in industry, as well as in engineering domains and in life and environmental sciences.  There are however specific challenges in moving from academic research to real environments: these challenges are not only technical, but may also encompass issues such as user interaction and adoption.

The Engineering and Real World Applications thematic area seeks papers that address (but are not limited to) the following:

  - Case studies on the adoption of EC within organisations and businesses
  - Novel applications of EC in new academic domains, e.g. to tackle optimisation/design problems in physical, environmental, and life sciences
  - Optimisation in industrial environments, e.g. including but not limited to production planning, transportation, distribution, and control engineering
  - Hybrid methods and novel heuristics developed to solve specific problems, particularly where these might be generalized to other applications
  - The handling of real world soft constraints
  - The construction of user interfaces to allow non-experts to use EC based techniques
  - Any other real world applications where EC is the main methodology

We encourage authors to consider their readership and when discussing a specific application area, provide sufficient introductory background to the area for the lay reader to understand.


  - Submission Deadline: November 1, 2018
  - Notification: January 3, 2019
  - Camera-ready: January 15, 2019
  - EvoStar event: April 24-26, 2019 (Leipzig, Germany)


This year EvoApplications is accepting two kinds of submission: full papers and short papers. Full papers require novel and complete research work and have a limit of 16 pages. Short papers should present complete research and interesting preliminary results and have a limit of 8 pages. Both types of submission will undergo the same double-blind review process and all accepted papers will be included in the LNCS proceedings. All authors of accepted papers will be given the opportunity to further disseminate their work in poster sessions.

- Page limit: 8 pages (short papers) or 16 pages (full papers).
- Submission format: Springer LNCS
- Review process: double-blind. Please ensure to anonymize your submission.

The city of Leipzig is located in the north-east of Germany, about 160km south of Berlin. Situated at the crossing of two major medieval trading routes, Via Imperii connecting Italy with the North and Via Regia connecting East and West, it was once considered as one of the major European centers oftrade, culture and learning. Today Leipzig is an easily likeable, green and young city with a rich cultural diversity. Particularly in the city center one can find many beautiful historical buildings from different architectural periods, museums and parks. Also, lovers of classical music appreciate Leipzig due to the impact of Bach and Mendelsohn-Bartholdy, who lived in thecity for important parts of their lives.
