about

Evolutionary computation (EC) involves the study of problem-solving and op- mization techniques inspired by principles of natural evolution and genetics. EC has been able to draw the attention of an increasing number of researchers and practitioners in several ?elds. Evolutionary algorithms have in particular been showntobee?ectivefordi?cultcombinatorialoptimizationproblemsappearing in various industrial, economics, and scienti?c domains. This volume contains the proceedings of EvoCOP 2005, the 5th European Conference on Evolutionary Computation in Combinatorial Optimization. It was held in Lausanne, Switzerland, on 30 March-1 April 2005, jointly with EuroGP 2005, the 8th European Conference on Genetic Programming, and the EvoWorkshops 2005, which consisted of the following six individual workshops: EvoBIO, the 3rd European Workshop on Evolutionary Bioinformatics; Evo- COMNET, the 2nd European Workshop on Evolutionary Computation in C- munication, Networks, and Connected Systems; EvoHOT, the 2nd European Workshop on Hardware Optimisation Techniques; EvoIASP, the 7th European Workshop on Evolutionary Computation in Image Analysis and Signal Proce- ing; EvoMUSART, the 3rd European Workshop on Evolutionary Music and Art; and EvoSTOC, the 2nd European Workshop on Evolutionary Algorithms in Stochastic and Dynamic Environments.
