Call For Papers

The recent increasing interest in the synergy between evolutionary computation and neural networks provides an impetus for a symposium dedicated to furthering our understanding of this synergy and the potential utility of hybridizing evolutionary and neural techniques. The First IEEE Symposium on Combinations of Evolutionary Computation and Neural Networks will offer a forum that focuses specifically on the hybridization of evolutionary and neural computation. In particular, papers are solicited in the areas of

Other topics that combine evolutionary and neural computation are also welcome. Submitted papers should represent unpublished, original work.

Paper Submission

Send three (3) copies of your manuscript to

Xin Yao
School of Computer Science
The University of Birmingham
Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2TT

All three hardcopies should be printed on 8.5 by 11 inch or A4 paper using 11 point Times. Allow at least one inch (25mm) margins on all borders. A paper must include a title, an abstract, and the body and references. It must also include the names and addresses of all authors, their email addresses, and their telephone/fax numbers. The length of submitted papers must be no more than 15 single-spaced, single-column pages, including all figures, tables, and references. Shorter papers are encouraged.

In addition to hardcopies, please send a postscript file of your paper (gzipped if possible) to facilitate electronic reviewing to the following email address: Please check the symposium's web site for more details as they become available.
