NoHNES members Anna Esparcia and Ken Sharman attended EvoStar 2009, the premier European event on Evolutionary Computation. Anna served as co-chair of EvoNUM (the 2nd European Workshop on Bio-inspired algorithms for continuous parameter optimisation) and EvoGAMES (the 1st European Workshop on Bio-inspired Algorithms in Games).

See some pictures here.

News:

  • The tandem Ekart-Esparcia, so sucessful as chairs of EvoNUM, was also voted to chair EuroGP 2010, with Sara Silva as Publications Chair.
  • The 2010 edition of EvoStar will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, on April 7th to the 9th, with Sima Uyar as Local chair .

Our work on modeling pheromone dispensers at EvoNUM 2009

Our work on modeling pheromone dispensers for sexual confusion in agricluture was presented by Anna Esparcia in the 2nd European workshop on Bio-inspired algorithms for continuous parameter optimisation, EvoNUM 2009, which is part of EvoStar 2009, the premier European event on Evolutionary Computation.

Although the presentation was scheduled at the ungodly hour of 10:30, the comments were higly favourable. As in the previous occasion where we have presented this work, the application was received with great interest, partly because computer scientists are in general unaware of where their food comes from.
However, unlike in MAEB 2009, this time we did not get what has become a memorable comment: “Us people from Madrid only go to the country to check that cows are in fact not purple”.
