CfP: 2011 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2011) – New track on Digital Entertainment Technologies

GECCO 2011: Call for Papers NEW FRONTIERS TRACK: Digital Entertainment Technologies and Arts
(This track is newly established and runs for the first time)

July 12-16, Dublin, Ireland

This track invites submissions that present original work on the use of computational intelligence techniques and related
algorithms in games, music and arts, be it of methodological, experimental or theoretical nature.

20th International Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA) and
the 16th Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP)
One Conference – Many Mini-Conferences, 16 Program Tracks

Digital Entertainment Technologies and Arts encompass the young areas of games, music and arts and all aspects of supportive computational methods. Arts, musics and games are currently becoming key application fields for genetic and evolutionary computation and related techniques. Indeed, they match up well with the desire of innovative game production and creative artists active in music and visual design. Moreover, they pair up well, as game development depends on visual and music/sound creativity. This new frontiers track explicitly focusses on these areas and propels joint works, thereby strengthening a currently forming area of high scientific, commercial, and cultural interest.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
– Automated content generation
– Biologically-inspired creativity
– Evolutionary arts
– Virtual world
– Game artifical intelligence
– Educational/serious games
– Intelligent interactive narrative
– Learning and adaptation in games
– Theoretical or experimental analysis of CI techniques for games, music and arts
– Related competitions or benchmarking
– Player satisfaction
– Music in games, games on music
