Workshop Description

Evolutionary algorithms are often applied to difficult optimization problems where candidate solutions are subject to various constraints. There is a large body of practical guidelines and theoretical results about evolutionary algorithms in the context of constrained optimization. Closely related is the subject of constraint programming where some solution satisfying all constraints is sought. In both contexts evolutionary computation techniques can be and are applied to solve hard problems. The workshop intends to provide a forum for current research in these areas. Algorithmic techniques, case studies, theoretical and empirical analyses are all welcome. While focusing on handling constraints we intend to provide a forum for discussion, therefore allowing generous time slots for each presentation and ample time for discussions.

Each submitted paper will by independently reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will be included in the GECCO 2010 material and appear as part ACM's digital library.
