[DMANET] Call for Papers: Foundations of Genetic Algorithms (FOGA) 2013

Foundations of Genetic Algorithms XII
16-20 January 2013, Adelaide, Australia

Submission Deadline: August 1, 2012

Frank Neumann, The University of Adelaide, Australia,
Kenneth De Jong, George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia, USA,

We invite submissions to the Foundations of Genetic Algorithms (FOGA) 2013 workshop which will be held from January 16-20, 2013, in Adelaide, Australia.
FOGA is the premier event on the theoretical foundations of all kinds of evolutionary computation techniques including (but not limited to) evolutionary algorithms,
ant colony optimization, and particle swarm optimization. Accepted papers will be published in a post-conference proceedings by ACM Press.
The goal of FOGA 2013 is to advance the theoretical understanding of evolutionary computing techniques and to promote theoretical work to the wider community.
A successful exchange between theory and practice on evolutionary computation is very desirable and so we encourage submissions bridging theory and practice.
In addition to strict mathematical investigations, experimental studies increasing the theoretical foundations of evolutionary computation methods are very welcome.
Topics include (but are not limited to): fitness landscapes and problem difficulty, population dynamics, runtime analysis, self-adaptation, single- and multi-objective problems,
statistical approaches, stochastic and dynamic environments, and working principles of evolutionary computing techniques in general.

Authors should submit their papers (12 page maximum) consistent with the FOGA style file which can be found at the conference web-site.
To submit, please email a compressed postscript or a PDF file to by the submission deadline. Your email should include the title of the paper,
and the name, address and affiliation of all the authors. To ensure the reviews are double-blind, authors are asked to remove references to themselves from their paper.
Preliminary versions of the accepted papers will be distributed to participants at FOGA. Authors of papers presented at the FOGA workshop will be asked to contribute final
versions of their papers as part of the post-conference proceedings published by ACM.

Submission deadline: August 1, 2012
Notification to authors: October 15, 2012
Pre-proceedings deadline: December 1, 2012
