      Special issue of "Applied Soft Computing" (Elsevier) on
"Evolutionary Computer Vision, Image Processing and Pattern Recognition"


Evolutionary algorithms have been shown  to be tools which can be used
effectively in  the development of systems (software  or hardware) for
image  analysis  and signal  processing  in  complex  domains of  high
industrial and social relevance.

EvoIASP, held  yearly since  1999, 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

Since  2009,  EvoIASP  has  become  a track  of  EvoApplications,  the
Conference  on Applications  of Evolutionary  Computation, one  of the
events which take place under the common name of Evostar.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- applications   of  evolutionary   computation  to   real-life image    
  analysis, signal processing and pattern recognition problems
- evolvable vision and signal processing hardware
- hybrid approaches  to machine vision, signal  processing and pattern 
  recognition including evolutionary components
- theoretical developments
- comparisons  between different  evolutionary techniques  and between 
  evolutionary  and  non-evolutionary  techniques in  image analysis, 
  signal processing and pattern recognition applications
- time series analysis by means of EC techniques.


The Proceedings of Evostar  2017, including EuroGP, EvoCOP, EvoMusArt,
EvoApplications, will be published by Springer in the LNCS Series.

Special issue of Applied Soft Computing(Elsevier) on "Evolutionary 
Computer Vision, Image Processing and Pattern Recognition"

This year, the authors of the  best papers accepted by EvoIASP will be
invited to submit  a significantly extended version of  their paper to
uncoming special issue of Applied Soft Computing Journal (Elsevier) on
"Evolutionary   Computer   Vision,   Image  Processing   and   Pattern
Recognition" for  further review  and publication.  The  Special Issue
Call for Papers can be found at


Applied Soft  Computing Journal is  indexed, among others,  by Science
Citation  Index Expanded  (SCIE), Engineering  Index (EI,  Compendex),
DBLP, Scopus,  Google Scholar,  etc.  Its impact  factor is  2.857 and
5-year impact factor is 3.288.  It is rated as a Region 1 (Q1) journal
by Thomson ISI and is ranked  first by Google Scholar among EC-related
publications, according to the h5 index.

Submissions to EVOIASP 2017

Submit your  manuscript, at most  16 A4  pages long, in  Springer LNCS
format        (instructions        are        downloadable        from
  no later than November 15,
2016.  The papers will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the
program  committee. Authors  will be  notified on  the results  of the
review in early January 2017.

The authors of accepted papers will  be invited to improve their paper
on the  basis of the  reviewers' comments and  asked to send  a camera
ready  version  of their  manuscripts,  along  with text  sources  and
pictures within  two weeks from  the notification of  acceptance.  The
accepted  papers  will appear  in  the  proceedings of  Evostar  2017,
published by Springer in the Lecture Notes on Computer Science Series.

Student Bursaries

We anticipate the  availability of several bursaries  for students and
young scientists  partially covering  travel and lodging  expenses and
registration for the  whole Evostar event.  Priority will  be given to
young scientists who will present their work at the conference.
