[DMANET] IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation CEC-2017, San Sebastian, Spain: Call for papers, competitions, tutorials, and special sessions.

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 IEEE Conference on Evolutionary
Computation ( will be held in San Sebastian, Spain, in
June 5-8, 2017.

IEEE CEC is a world-class conference that aims to bring together
researchers and practitioners in the field of evolutionary computation
and computational intelligence from all around the globe. Technical
exchanges within the research community will encompass keynote lectures,
regular and special sessions, tutorials, and competitions as well as
poster presentations. In addition, participants will be treated to a
series of social functions, receptions, and networking to establish new
connections and foster everlasting friendship among fellow counterparts.

Donostia/San Sebastian is a coastal medium-size city located in northern
Spain, 20km from the border with France. It stands as an amphitheatre
over-looking the sea. It is known the world over for its spectacular bay
and is referred to as the Pearl of the Cantabrian Sea. It is also
internationally renowned for being a culinary haven where visitors will
find more Michelin stars per square meter than in any other city in the
world. The conference will take place at the Kursaal Convention Center
and Auditorium. Kursaal is located in the city center, overlooking the
seafront. This avant-garde architectural showpiece was designed by
Rafael Moneo and won the Mies van der Rohe prize for the best building
in Europe in 2001. The main hotels, restaurants and shopping areas are
within walking distance.
