[DMANET] GECCO Workshop on Evolutionary Algorithms for Smart Grids

Call for Submissions: Workshop on Evolutionary Algorithms for Smart Grids

at ​GECCO 2017 in Berlin, July 15th-19th 2017

The main goal of this workshop is to promote the research on
evolutionary algorithms in smart grids. We are seeking innovative
research articles including, but not limited to the following areas:
- Energy generation and load forecasting
- Demand side and smart home energy management
- Network Restoration
- Real-time control and optimization
- Smart micro-grids

Submitted work should put an emphasis on modeling of solution spaces, on
finding optimal representations and operators for evolutionary
algorithms, and on employing and developing advanced evolutionary
heuristics, e.g., for step size control, constraint handling, dynamic
solution spaces, and multiple conflicting objectives.

We invite the submissions of two types of paper:
- Research papers (up to 8 pages)
- Position papers (two pages)

We encourage authors to submit early and in- progress work.

All papers should be submitted as PDFs in ACM format to Papers do not have to be anonymized. For
details, please visit:

All accepted papers will appear in the GECCO workshop volume.
