Hosted and Sponsored by
Evolutionary Computation and Machine Learning Group (ECML), School of Computer Science and IT, RMIT University
Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, The University of Melbourne

School of Information Technology, Monash University

Venue: ICT building, The University of Melbourne (111 Barry Street).

Aim and Scopes

Evolution and learning are two fundamental forms of adaptation. SEAL'08 is the seventh biennial conference in the highly successful series that aims at exploring these two forms of adaptation and their roles and interactions in adaptive systems. Cross-fertilisation between evolutionary learning and other machine learning approaches, such as neural network learning, reinforcement learning, decision tree learning, fuzzy system learning, etc., will be strongly encouraged by the conference. The other major theme of the conference is optimisation by evolutionary approaches or hybrid evolutionary approaches. The topics of interest to this conference include but are not limited to the following: Evolutionary Learning; Evolutionary Optimisation; Hybrid Learning; Adaptive Systems; Theoretical Issues in Evolutionary Computation; Real-World Applications of Evolutionary Computation Techniques. See Call For Papers for further details.


All accepted papers which are presented at the conference will be included in the conference proceedings, published as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) by Springer. Selected best papers will be invited for further revisions and extensions for possible publications by two journal special issues (Soft Computing and Evolutionary Intelligence).
