Special Session on Evolutionary Techniques in
Nanotechnology and Quantum Computing

at the 2008 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation,
Part of the 2008 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence

Final Program

Nanotechnology has made tremendous progress in recent years. Evolutionary techniques such as neural networks has been successfully applied to nano-computing. Historically, classical computer concepts and underlying technologies have been invented by mathematicians and physicists rather than engineers. It was engineers, however, who took basic concepts and ideas and created the practical powerful and inexpensive computers of today. We believe that the same will happen in case of nano-computing and quantum computing. Currently there are several research groups and conferences in the field of nanotechnology, nano-architectures, nano-computing, quantum computing, quantum circuits and quantum information that are addressed to physicists, mathematicians and theoretical computer scientists. Although quantum computing (as a sub-field of nanotechnology) is still in its nascent days, there have been experiments that successfully perform quantum computation on a small number of qubits. There is a growing group of researchers with engineering background who do active research in the area of what will become quantum computer engineering and there are universities who already teach "quantum engineers".

Some typical research areas that will be discussed in this special session include (but are not limited to) the following:

Important Dates

Paper Submission:extended to December 15, 2007
Acceptance Notification:February 1, 2008
Final Manuscript Due:March 1, 2008

Paper Submission

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard format and page limit of regular papers specified in CEC 2008. For submission instructions, please see the WCCI submission page at http://www.wcci2006.org/submission.htm.

CEC is one of the flagship conferences for the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. All special session papers will be treated in the same way as regular papers. The confernce proceedings of CEC have been continuously included in the EI Compendex Database and IEEE Xplore.
