2016 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation

Vancouver, Canada, 25-29 July, 2016

Special Session on Evolutionary Computer Vision


Computer vision is a major unsolved problem in computer science and engineering. Over the last decade there has been increasing interest in using evolutionary computation approaches to solve vision problems. Computer vision provides a range of problems of varying difficulty for the development and testing of evolutionary algorithms. There have been a relatively large number of papers in evolutionary computer vision in recent CEC and GECCO conferences. It would be beneficial to researchers to have these papers in a special session. Also, a special session would encourage more researchers to continue to work in this field and consider CEC a place for presenting their work.

Scope and Topics

The proposed special session aims to bring together theories and applications of evolutionary computation to computer vision and image processing problems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

New theories and methods in different EC paradigms to computer vision and image processing including

Applications in computer vision and image processing including

Important Dates:

Paper Submission:

You should follow the IEEE CEC 2016 Submission Web Site. Special session papers are treated the same as regular conference papers. All papers accepted and presented at CEC 2016 will be included in the conference proceedings published by IEEE Explore, which are typically indexed by EI.
