To be held in conjunction with the 2011 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation
New Orleans - June 5 2011
The deadline has been extended until May 5th, 2011 This implies an extension in the notification of acceptances in works submitted after the first deadline.
The first International Workshop on Distributed Evolutionary Computation in Informal Environments is a half-day workshop that will be held in conjunction with CEC2011. Its main intention is to gather all people that work on distributed evolutionary computation in informal environments: non-cluster, non-grid, for instance. More explanations below.
Topics included in this workshop
Informal computing includes ways of creating computing systems which are not fixed or bound to an organization, such as:
Using these (and similar) kinds of computing presents its own challenges, since neither the topology nor the availability of a particular node is known; computing nodes will have different performances and capabilities (and the connection to them will too) so that evolutionary computing paradigms will have to be adapted to them to take full advantage of the system without losing the essence of evolutionary algorithm. Thus, the main topics of the workshop are (but will not be limited to):
