Welcome to WIVACE 2017
XII Workshop on Artificial Life and Evolutionary Computation
Venice, 19-21 September 2017
Università Ca' Foscari
The Workshop on Artificial Life and Evolutionary Computation aims to bring together researchers working in Artificial Life and Evolutionary Computation to present and share their research in a multidisciplinary context. The workshop provides a forum for the discussion of new research directions and applications in these fields, where different disciplines could effectively meet. It was first held in 2007 in Sampieri (Ragusa), as the incorporation of two previously separately running workshops (WIVA and GSICE). After the success of the first edition, the workshop was organized in the following years in Venice (2008), Naples (2009), Parma (2012), Milan (2013), Vietri (2014), Bari (2015) and Salerno (2016).
