Penousal Machado

Call for papers for the EML 2023 track


Submission Deadline: November 1, 2022
Conference: 12 to 14 April 2023.
Venue: Brno, Czech Republic

** NEW Submission deadline: November 16, 2022 **

This joint track on Evolutionary Machine Learning (EML) will provide a specialized forum for discussion and exchange of information for researchers interested in exploring approaches that combine nature and nurture, with the long-term goal of evolving Artificial Intelligence (AI).

In response to the growing interest in the area, and consequent advances of the state-of-the-art, the special session covers theoretical and practical advances on the combination of Evolutionary Computation (EC) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques.

Topics of Interest

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

EC as an ML technique: Using EC to solve typical ML tasks such as Classification or Clustering
EC applied ML algorithms: Neuroevolution, Feature Selection, Feature Engineering, Evolutionary Adversarial Models
ML applied to EC: Surrogate-model design by ML for EC, Learning Problem Structure, ML for Diversity, Designing Search Strategies, Predicting Promising Regions, Using ML to Decrease Computational Effort
Real world applications issues: EC for Fairness, Robustness, Trustworthiness and Explainability; Green EML
Emerging topics: EC for AutoML; EC for Transfer Learning; EC for Multitasking; Evolving Learning Functions, Neurons and Linkage; EC for Verification and Validation of ML
Submission Details
Accepted papers will be published by Springer Nature in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. They will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The reviewing process will be double-blind, so please omit information about the authors in the submitted paper. Submit your manuscript in Springer LNCS format and provide up to five keywords in your Abstract.

As a joint EuroGP+EvoAPPS track, authors should decide whether their paper will be treated within EvoApplications or EuroGP by selecting the corresponding submission link below. Both conferences are ranked CORE B.
