CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
EuroEctel'99

FIRST EUROPEAN WORKSHOP ON
EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION IN TELECOMMUNICATIONS


GOTEBORG, 27th May, 1999

Sponsored by EVONET

Evolutionary Computation (EC) is being increasingly exploited in telecomms-related applications such as network design, network management, protocol validation, adaptive distributed databases, call routing, data mining of telecomms databases, and many others. The rle of EC in telecommunications is also set to significantly increase as a wealth of new technologies in this domain give rise to new, and very difficult, optimisation and adaptation issues.

EuroEctel'99 is the first major international conference devoted to current state of the art research on the application of EC techniques in this exciting domain. The aims of EuroEctel are to give European and non-European researchers applying EC in telecomms an opportunity to present their latest research and discuss current developments and applications. The event will be held at Chalmers University of Technology in Goteborg, Sweden, on the 27th May 1999.

The workshop is sponsored by EvoNet, the Network of Excellence in Evolutionary Computing, and is one of the activities of EctelNet, the EvoNet working group on Telecommunications. It will be held in conjunction with four other major European events:

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

The workshop will consist of an invited talk, oral and poster sessions with periods for discussion, and software demos and industrial stands.
