International Conference on Evolvable Systems (ICES)

The International Conference on Evolvable Systems (ICES) has been held, uninterrupted, since 1995. Following on from the success in previous years, ICES will continue to be part of the successful IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence, providing the possibility for increased interaction between ICES and the other symposiums and workshops.

Evolvable systems encompass understanding, modelling and application of biologically inspired mechanisms to physical systems. Application areas for bio-inspired algorithms include the creation of novel physical devices/systems, novel or optimised designs for physical systems and for the achievement of adaptive physical systems. Having showcased examples from analogue and digital electronics, antennas, MEMS chips, optical systems as well as quantum circuits in the past, the IEEE ICES has become the leading conference for showcasing techniques and applications of evolvable systems.
