Evolutionary Computation Technical Committee


Who We Are

The Evolutionary Computation Technical Committee (ECTC) is established to promote the research, development, and teaching of computational techniques that use non-deterministic methods to adapt their behavior over time. These techniques are inspired by adaptive methods found in nature and solve problems by modelling evolutionary processes. Any such computational technique shall be referred to as an evolutionary computation (EC).

What We Do

The ECTC shall engage in various activities in order to promote EC as a viable technology, including but not limited to the following:

  • Recommend candidates to the Awards Committee for the CIS Pioneer Award in the EC area
  • Nominate papers for Outstanding Paper Awards to the Awards Committee from papers published in the Transactions on EC
  • Propose special sessions to the CIS-sponsored conference organizers
  • Participate in paper reviews and selection for CIS-sponsored conferences and publications
  • Promote IEEE Senior Members and Fellows program
  • Collaborate on production of tutorials and book series with the Multimedia Committee
  • Maintain the Committee's website
  • Facilitate local chapters activities and organize specialized workshops or meetings
  • The ECTC will assist in soliciting conference proposals and actively work with the organizers of CIS-sponsored conferences to ensure their technical excellence
  • When requested by the CIS, the ECTC will evaluate and report on the technical merits of conference or symposium proposals submitted to the CIS
