We are very pleased to present to you this LNCS volume, the proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature (PPSN 2010). PPSN is one of the most respected and highly regarded c- ference series in evolutionary computation, and indeed in natural computation aswell.Thisbiennialeventwas?rstheldinDortmundin1990,andtheninBr- sels (1992), Jerusalem (1994), Berlin (1996), Amsterdam (1998), Paris (2000), Granada (2002), Birmingham (2004), Reykjavik (2006) and again in Dortmund in 2008. PPSN 2010 received 232 submissions. After an extensive peer review p- cess involving more than 180 reviewers, the program committee chairs went through all the review reports and ranked the papers according to the revi- ers'comments. Each paper wasevaluated by at least three reviewers.Additional reviewers from the appropriate branches of science were invoked to review into disciplinary papers. The top 128 papers were ?nally selected for inclusion in the proceedings and presentation at the conference. This represents an acceptance rate of 55%, which guarantees that PPSN will continue to be one of the c- ferences of choice for bio-inspired computing and metaheuristics researchers all over the world who value the quality over the size of a conference. The papers included in the proceedingsvolumes covera wide range of topics, fromevolutionarycomputationto swarmintelligence, frombio-inspiredcomp- ing to real-world applications. Machine learning and mathematical games s- portedbyevolutionaryalgorithmsaswellasmemetic,agent-orientedsystemsare also represented. They all are the latest and best in natural computation. The proceedings are composed of two volumes divided into nine thematic sections.
