EvoRISK 2014, Call For Papers
Track on Computational Intelligence for Risk Management,
Security and Defence Applications @ EvoApplications
Part of the Evo* Event
(proceedings by Springer Verlag LNCS series)

Baeza, Spain,  23-25 April 2014

*** Submission deadline: 1 November 2013 ***

Recent events involving both natural disasters and human-made
attacks have emphasized the importance of solving challenging
problems in risk management, security and defence. Traditional
methods have proven insufficient to address these problems and
hence Computational Intelligence techniques present themselves
as a more appealing alternative.
We seek both theoretical developments and applications of
Computational Intelligence to these subjects. All bio-inspired
computational paradigms are welcome, mainly Genetic and
Evolutionary Computation, but also Fuzzy Logic, Intelligent
Agent Systems, Neural Networks, Cellular Automata, Artificial
Immune Systems and others, including hybrids.

Topics include but are not limited to:
-• Cyber crime: anomaly detection systems, attack prevention and
defence, threat forecasting systems, anti spam, antivirus systems,
cyber warfare, cyber fraud
-• IT Security: Intrusion detection, behaviour monitoring, network
traffic analysis …
- Resilient and self-healing systems
-• Risk management: identification, prevention, monitoring and
handling of risks, risk impact and probability estimation systems,
contingency plans, real time risk management
-• Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP)
-• Military, counter-terrorism and other defence related aspects
-• Disaster relief and humanitarian logistics
-• Real-world applications of these subjects

Submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines
and must not be longer than 12 pages. Accepted papers will appear
in the proceedings of Evo*, published in a volume of the Springer
Lecture Notes in Computer Science, which will be available at the

Important dates common to all Evo* events:
* submission deadline: 1 November 2013
* conference dates: 23-25 April 2014
