iGECCO 2020 - Call for Papers

Call for Papers INTERACTIVE METHODS @ GECCO (iGECCO 2020) to be held as part of the 2020 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2020) July 8 th -12 th , Cancun, Mexico Organized by ACM SIGEVO Submission Deadline for this workshop: April 3rd, 2020 Aim and Scope As nature-inspired methods have evolved, it has become clear that optimising towards a quantified fitness function is not always feasible, particularly where part or all of the evaluation of a candidate solution is inherently subjective. This is particularly the case when applying search algorithms to problems such as the generation of art and music. In other cases, optimising to a fitness function might result in a highly optimal solution that is not well suited to implementation in the real world. Incorporating a human into the optimisation process can yield useful results in both examples, and as such the work on interactive evolutionary algorithms (IEAs) has m
