Call for Papers: Real-World Applications Track
GECCO 2018, July 15-19, Kyoto, Japan

Real-world applications (RWA) were originally the driving force for the development of evolutionary optimisation techniques; way before any theories were developed, EC was already applied successfully in the real world. In this spirit, the RWA track welcomes rigorous experimental, computational and/or applied advances in evolutionary computation (EC) in any discipline devoted to the study of real-world problems. The aim is to bring together contributions from the diverse fields encountered in Engineering and Sciences, including Social Sciences and Economics, into a single event. The focus is on applications including but not limited to:

  • Papers that describe advances in the field of EC for implementation
  • Papers that present rigorous comparisons across techniques in
    real-world applications.
  • Papers that present novel uses of EC in the real world.
  • Papers that present new applications of EC to real-world problems.

All contributions should be original research papers demonstrating the relevance and applicability of EC within a real-world problem. Papers covering multiple disciplines are welcome; we encourage the authors of such papers to write and present them in a way that allows researchers from other fields to grasp the main results, techniques, and their potential applications. The real-world applications track is open to all domains and all industries.
