2019 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation
Special Session on Evolutionary Computation in Finance and Economics
Supported by the IEEE CIS Computational Finance and Economics Technical Committee

Important Dates

Submission Deadline: 7 January 2019
Acceptance Notification: 7 March 2019

Scope and Topics: 

Computational Finance and Economics covers a wide area of topics and techniques. The arrival of new computational methods, in particular from Evolutionary Computation (EC), continually pushes the boundaries of the field outwards. That, together with the advances in available hardware, have contributed to a growing interest in applying EC techniques to solve different financial and economics problems. This Special Session is dedicated to the application of Evolutionary Computation methodologies to such problems. We welcome papers from any algorithm from the EC field (e.g. genetic algorithms, genetic programing, swarm intelligence, etc), as well as hybrid EC methods. Applications include (but not limited to):

Paper Submission:

Please follow the IEEE CEC2019 Submission Web Site. Special session papers are treated the same as regular conference papers. Please specify that your paper is submitted to the Special Session in Evolutionary Computation in Finance and Economics. All papers accepted and presented at CEC2019 will be included in the conference proceedings published by IEEE Explore, which are typically indexed by EI.
