6th International Workshop on Memetic Algorithms (WOMA 2009) part of the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence Nashville, Tennessee, USA The WOMA series is a forum where the international community of researchers, practitioners and vendors, that work on aspects related to Memetic algorithms, can engage in fruitful discussions, learning and contribute to the advancement of this field. Memetic algorithms (MAs) are inspired by models of adaptation in natural systems that combine evolutionary adaptation of populations of individuals with individual learning within a lifetime. Combining global and local search is a strategy used by many successful optimization approaches, and MAs have long been recognized as a powerful algorithmic paradigm for evolutionary computing. From a more general perspective, MAs have been seen as a useful tool for investigating a range of social and biological phenomena. It is the goal of this workshop to push forward our understanding of both the theory and the deployment of MA. Papers are invited covering practical or theoretical topics related to Memetic algorithms. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a special issue of the Journal of Memetic Computing. Submission is on-line. Guidelines and information can be found at http://www.ieee-ssci.org/index.php?q=node/36 Relevant dates: - Submission Due: November 12th 2008. - Notification to Authors: December 10th 2008 - Camera-Ready Papers due: January 15th 2009 - Conference: March 30 - April 2, 2009 Sheraton Music City Hotel, Nashville, TN, USA More details about the workshop and organisers can be found at: http://www.ieee-ssci.org/index.php?q=node/19 More details about the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence can be found at: http://www.ieee-ssci.org/ Dr Jim Smith Reader in Artificial Intelligence Department of Computer Science University of the West of England Bristol BS16 1QY UK e: james.smith_(at)_uwe.ac.uk t: +44 (0) 117 3283161 f: +44 (0) 117 3282587 w: www.cems.uwe.ac.uk/~jsmith _____ This email was independently scanned for viruses by McAfee anti-virus software and none were found _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
