CALL FOR PAPERS
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.
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.
