Workshop 12- PEC

International Workshop on Parallel Evolutionary Computation

(PEC 2011)

Call for Papers

As part of

The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation

(HPCS 2011)

In Conjunction With

The International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2011)

July 4 – 8, 2011

Istanbul, Turkey

(Submission Deadline: February 14, 2011)


Evolutionary Algorithms (EA) is one of the most important tools for complex systems evaluation. Some of the recent EA’s are Differential Evolution, Particle Swarm (Swarm Intelligence), Scatter Search, and Self-Organizing Migrating Algorithm, amongst others. Other techniques, such as Genetic Programming or similar techniques, are widely used today in order to get elegant solutions of complex systems. Examples of such systems can be seen in ordinary world around us and of course in almost every science discipline, including such “exotic” domains like the earth’s atmosphere, turbulent fluids, economies (exchange rate and stock markets), population growth, physics (control of plasma) and chemistry for example.

Computational complexity of many problems is so big that standard as well as evolutionary techniques, together with methods of HPC, have to be used to get results in real time. Together with such applications of EAs and HPC, there are theoretical questions about HPC, its possibilities, and use.

This track will establish a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent trends in the area of intersection of EAs and HPC for researchers, students and academics.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Evolution in Grid Mathematica

  • Parallelized Genetic Programming Techniques

  • Complex Networks and Evolution

  • Evolution and Cloud Computing

  • Evolution and Classical HPC

  • Application of Parallelized Evolution


Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the Workshop organizers at

Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the workshop organizer.
