Workshop 13-PEC

International Workshop on Parallel Evolutionary Computation
(PEC 2013)

CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION

As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2013)

http://hpcs2013.cisedu.info or  http://cisedu.us/rp/hpcs13

July 1 – July 5, 2013
Helsinki, Finland

Extended Submission Deadline: March 28, 2013

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters


SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
Evolutionary Algorithms (EA) is one of the most important tools for complex systems evaluation.  Some of the recent EA’s are Differential Evolution, Particle Swarm (Swarm Intelligence), Scatter Search, and Self-Organizing Migrating Algorithm, amongst others.  Other techniques, such as Genetic Programming or similar techniques, are widely used today in order to get elegant solutions of complex systems.  Examples of such systems can be seen in ordinary world around us and of course in almost every science discipline, including such “exotic” domains like the earth’s atmosphere, turbulent fluids, economies (exchange rate and stock markets), population growth, physics (control of plasma) and chemistry for example. 

Computational complexity of many problems is so big that standard as well as evolutionary techniques, together with methods of HPC, have to be used to get results in real time.  Together with such applications of EAs and HPC, there are theoretical questions about HPC, its possibilities, and use. 

This track will establish a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent trends in the area of intersection of EAs and HPC for researchers, students and academics. 

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
  • Evolution in Grid Mathematica
  • Parallelized Genetic Programming Techniques
  • Complex Networks and Evolution
  • Evolution and Cloud Computing
  • Evolution and Classical HPC
  • Application of Parallelized Evolution

PAPER SUBMISSIONS
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to evolutionary algorithms and high performance computing.  Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere.  Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses.  Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words.  The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format.  Additional pages will be charged additional fee.  Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://hpcs2013.cisedu.info/home/posters  for the posters submission details) will also be accepted for submission.  In case of multiple authors, an indication of which author(s) is responsible for correspondence must be indicated.   Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. 

Authors are invited to submit a PDF copy of their manuscript to the workshop using the following link:  http://cisedu.us/cis/hpcs/13/users/upload.jsp .  In the form you fill out, please indicate that the submission is for PEC 2013 in the Notes field  of the uploading form.   If the submission is for a poster paper or short paper, indicate that as well on the manuscript and in the form's Notes field. 

Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the link above.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, contributions, technical clarity and presentation.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. 

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.  Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2013 conference web site.  It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference.  The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly. 

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the conference organizers.
