The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2015) will present the latest high-quality results in genetic and evolutionary computation. Topics include: genetic algorithms, genetic programming, evolution strategies, evolutionary programming, memetic algorithms, hyper heuristics, real-world applications, evolutionary machine learning, evolvable hardware, artificial life, adaptive behaviour, ant colony optimization, swarm intelligence, biological applications, evolutionary robotics, coevolution, artificial immune systems, and more.
Metaheuristic Design Patterns Workshop (MetaDeeP)
Design Patterns are structured heuristics which capture the essentials of recurring practice in an abstract form. Their widespread use has revolutionized the software industry and the previous successful workshop on Metaheuristic Design Patterns (MetaDeeP @ GECCO 2014) demonstrated that similar refactorings are possible in optimization research. If you are interested in moving towards higher-levels of research communicability and automation, then you should attend MetaDeeP 2015, the second such workshop, to be held at GECCO.
