SEAL 2010

Eighth International Conference on

Simulated Evolution And Learning (SEAL-2010)
01 - 04 December 2010, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India
Evolutionary computation and learning approaches are two fundamental methods of adaptation which received an increasing attention over the past years. Simulated Evolution and Learning (SEAL-2010) is the eighth biennial conference which will be followed after a series of successful SEAL conferences, the last being organized at the University of Melbourne, Australia in December 2008. 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 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 (single and multi-objective); Hybrid Learning; Hybrid optimization, Adaptive Systems; Theoretical Issues in Evolutionary Computation; Real-World Applications of Evolutionary Computation and learning Techniques. See Call For Papers for further details.

The Eighth International Conference on Simulated Evolution And Learning (SEAL-2010)

1-4 December, 2010, IIT Kanpur, India


An Industrial Session is planned during the conference with significant industrial applications of Genetic and Evolutionary Computing Algorithms and Machine Learning methodologies. Paper submissions (short paper of upto 5 pages in length and full papers), highlighting the applications of tools and techniques relevant to this conference in Industrial applications are welcome. Please select "Industrial Session" as the group in the paper submissions page.

Industrial Session Chair

Varun is co-founder and Director at Aspiring Minds, where he heads Statistics and Machine Learning Group. He holds a Master of Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT, USA.
