Publishing and marketing your results are key to a career in evolutionary computing. I will offer some advice on publishing books, journal articles, conference papers, and theses. I will also offer comments on developments in publishing, such as open access and author marketing. And I will be pleased to field questions, comments, and discussion from the floor.
An electronics engineer by training, I developed embedded hardware and software systems for a control and communications company, and then I was a partner in a campus company developing an imaging technology. I joined Springer in 2000, where I’m a senior publishing editor. I am responsible for textbooks and monographs in theoretical computer science, bioinspired computing, artificial intelligence, cryptography, and information security; a number of handbooks, including the Springer Handbook of Natural Computing; and 16 journals in theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.
