Subject: Evolutionary Algorithm in Python (EAP) First Public Release

We are proud to announce the first public release of EAP, a library for doing
Evolutionary Algorithms in Python. You can download a copy of this open source
project at the following web page.

http://deap.googlecode.com

EAP has been built using the Python and UNIX programming philosophies in order
to provide a transparent, simple and coherent environment for implementing your
favourite evolutionary algorithms. EAP is very easy to use even for those who
do not know much about the Python programming language. EAP uses the object
oriented paradigm that is provided by Python in order to make development simple
and beautiful. It also contains a 15 illustrative and diversified examples, to
help newcomers to ramp up very quickly in using this environment.

EAP is part of the DEAP project, that also includes some facilities for the
automatic distribution and parallelization of tasks over a cluster of
computers.
The D part of DEAP, called DTM, is under intense development and currently
available as an alpha version. DTM currently provides two and a half ways to
distribute workload on a cluster or LAN of workstations, based on MPI and TCP
communication managers.

This public release (version 0.6) is more complete and simpler than ever. It
includes Genetic Algorithms using any imaginable representation, Genetic
Programming with strongly and loosely typed trees in addition to automatically
defined functions, Evolution Strategies (including Covariance Matrix
Adaptation), multiobjective optimization techniques (NSGA-II and SPEA2), easy
parallelization of algorithms and much more like milestones, genealogy, etc.

We are impatient to hear your feedback and comments on that system at
<deap-users at googlegroups dot com>

Subject: 2nd CFP Evolutionary Computation Transportation and Logistics 2011

We would again like to draw your attention to Evotranslog 2011,
the 5th European event on Evolutionary Computation in Transportation
and Logistics

EvoTransLog 2011 is incorporated in EvoStar 2011, which joins Europe's
premier co-located conferences in the field of evolutionary computing,
namely EuroGP, EvoCOP, EvoBIO, and the EvoApplications Conference on
the Application of Evolutionary Computation.

EvoTransLog will be held in Torino, Italy, 27-29 April 2011.
Submission deadline is November 22, 2010.

For more information, visit http://www.evostar.org

The impact of transportation and logistics on the modern economy and
society has been growing steadily over the last few decades. The
worldwide division of labour, the connection of distributed production
centres, and the increased mobility of individuals lead to an
increased demand for efficient solutions to problems in transport,
logistics, and supply chain management.

Along with the development of more powerful computer systems, design
and optimisation techniques like evolutionary computing approaches
have been developed that allow us to use computers for the systematic
design, optimisation, and improvement of systems. evotranslog,
Evolutionary Computation in Transportation and Logistics, addresses
all aspects of the use of evolutionary computation, local search,
matheuristics and other nature-inspired optimisation and design
techniques for transport, logistics, and supply chain management.

Evotranslog gives researchers in the above-named 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 different
scientific communities.

Areas of interest and contributions:

Relevant application topics include (but are not limited to):
- transportation and supply networks;
- logistics;
- supply chain management;
- freight and passenger services;
- tracking and tracing;
- fleet and order management;
- modelling and traffic management;
- traffic simulation;
- individual and public transportation:
- inventory optimisation;
- routing and scheduling.


Publication details:

Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of evo*, published in a
volume of the Springer Lecture Notes  in Computer Science, which will
be available at the Conference.

Submission details:

Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. The
submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the
program committee. The authors of accepted papers will have to improve
their paper on the basis of the reviewers’ comments and will be asked
to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts. At least one
author of each accepted work has to register for the conference and
attend the conference and present the work.

The reviewing process will be double-blind, please omit information
about the authors in the submitted paper.
Submit your manuscript in Springer lncs format.

                    Organized by ACM SIGEVO

20th International Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA) and the
16th Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP)

One Conference - Many Mini-Conferencesa 15 Program Tracks

The organization of GECCO 2011 is well underway and we are happy
to announce a very exciting program of tracks:

- Ant Colony Optimization and Swarm Intelligence
- Artificial Life, Evolutionary Robotics, Adaptive Behaviour
 and Evolvable Hardware
- Bioinformatics, Computational, Systems and Synthetic Biology

For GECCO-2011, we wish to expand the list of usual tracks with one "New
Frontiers Track" (NFT).

The goal of a New Frontiers Track is to allow our community to explore
emerging, exciting new ideas that relate or impinge into Genetic and
Evolutionary Computation and Natural Computing.

Thus, we are delighted to invite for NFTs proposals.

** NEW FRONTIERS TRACK PROPOSAL FORMAT **
Proposals should include a track title, the list of up to two co-chairs
and an abstract of max 1000 characters. The abstract should both
(i) describe the track focus and (ii) point out why the track should
be added to GECCO.

** SUBMISSION **
Proposals for NFTs should be submitted to [log in to unmask]
with subject "GECCO 2011 NFT Proposal" not later than November 19 2010.

** SELECTION **
The list of all NFTs will be examined by the GECCO-2011 organizers and the
list of NFTs selected for GECCO-2011 will be published on November 26 2010.
Some of the criteria for selection include novelty, potential and degree of
overlap with existing tracks.

The selected NFT will have the same status, editorial  procedures and quality
control as normal GECCO tracks. NFTs are expected  to run for one year only.

We believe this to be an exciting opportunity for the community to  explore
innovative, perhaps risky & adventurous research topics, within  the framework
of the top conference in the field. Hence, we very much  look forward for a
strong response from the community to this call for  New Frontiers
Track proposals!

            GENERATIVE AND DEVELOPMENTAL SYSTEMS TRACK
  2011 GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION CONFERENCE (GECCO-2011)

         http://www.sigevo.org/gecco-2011

Dear Generative and Developmental Systems (GDS) Researcher,

We invite you to submit a paper to the GDS track at GECCO 2011, which is the
premier conference for GDS-related work worldwide.

Our program committee of GDS experts means that your paper will be reviewed
by many leaders in the field. Moreover, the attendance and enthusiasm at the
GDS track has increased every year since it started in 2007. The size and
prestige of the GECCO conference will allow many researchers to learn
about your work, both at the conference and via the proceedings (GECCO  has
the highest impact rating of all conferences in the field of Evolutionary
Computation and Artificial Life*).

Generative and Developmental Systems (GDS) is the study of indirect
representations (also known as generative or developmental encodings), i.e.
indirect mappings between the genotype and phenotype.  Indirect
representations are often inspired by biological development, where complex
phenotypes are grown from compact genomes. The aim of such systems is to
exploit powerful representations that efficiently encode complex structures
and increase the scalability and evolvability of evolutionary algorithms.

Traditionally, GDS has focused on mappings that involve a developmental
stage, implemented in a variety of ways including re-write systems and cell
chemistry simulations.  However, GDS concerns a wide range of indirect
encodings, including high-level abstractions of biological development and
environmental interactions.

GDS research both sheds light on biological development and furthers
engineering goals by harnessing generative representations for evolutionary
design.  Overall, GDS concerns a wide range of indirect representations
concerned with the genotype-phenotype map and encourages comparison,
discussion, and analysis of the advantages and relationships among various
representations. The GDS track is also open to papers regarding applications
of generative encodings to interesting problems.

We invite all papers related to GDS, including those in the following
subject areas: artificial development, artificial embryogeny, compositional
pattern producing networks (CPPNs), computational embryology, developmental
encodings, evolutionary design, generative representations, genetic
regulatory networks (GRNs), indirect encodings, genotype to phenotype
mappings, procedural representations, Lindenmayer Systems (L-Systems), etc.

For more information, visit the GDS Community webpage at gds.wikispot.org

We also want to alert you to the historical importance of this track. Many
of you share our excitement about this field and its connection to the
powerful capabilities of biological encoding and development. For many
years, there was no consistent annual venue to which researchers in this
area could submit papers to be reviewed by a committee of GDS researchers.
Most opportunities to present work in this area have been through one-time
workshops or symposia that do not carry the same weight as a GECCO
conference publication. To address this gap, a committee of GDS researchers
encouraged GECCO to establish an official conference track in 2007. With the
establishment of the track, we now have an opportunity to build a strong and
consistent community that can improve and flourish over time.

However, the track can only survive with your submissions.   It is important
to note that GECCO permanently cancels tracks that fail to attract
sufficient submissions.  Therefore, our community can preserve this new
resource only by contributing papers.  We know that you have many options
for submitting your GDS-related ideas, and we hope that you will consider
the long-term investment that GDS represents for the community.  Our program
committee is selected from among the top GDS researchers in the world, and
we hope that our track will continue to flourish with your enthusiasm.


IMPORTANT DATES
* Submission deadline: January 26, 2011
* Notification of paper acceptance: March 23, 2011

EvoIASP has  been 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.

In 2011, EvoIASP  will reach its thirteenth edition,  after being held
in  Gothenburg,  Sweden  (1999),  Edinburgh, UK  (2000),  Como,  Italy
(2001),  Kinsale,  Ireland  (2002),  Colchester, UK  (2003),  Coimbra,
Portugal  (2004),  Lausanne,  Switzerland  (2005),  Budapest,  Hungary
(2006),  Valencia,  Spain  (2007),  Naples, Italy  (2008),  Tuebingen,
Germany (2009), Istanbul, Turkey (2010).

EvoIASP  2011  is part  of  EvoApplications  2011,  the Conference  on
Applications of Evolutionary Computation, one of the events which will
take place under  the common name of Evo* 2011, which  will be held in
Torino, the  first capital of  Italy, in the  year in which  the 150th
anniversary of the country's unification is celebrated.

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,
- time series analysis by means of EC techniques.
