This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of six workshops on evolutionary computation held concurrently as EvoWorkshops 2000 in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, in April 2000.
The 37 revised papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected by the respective program committees. All in all, the book demonstrates the broad application potential of evolutionary computing in a variety of fields. In accordance with the individual workshops, the book is divided into sections on image and signal processing; systems, controls, and drives in industry; telecommunications; scheduling and timetabling; robotics; and aeronautics.
