ACM Workshop on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation in Defense, Security and Risk Management - SecDef @ GECCO 2018

July 15-19, 2018 in Kyoto, Japan


The Fifth ACM Workshop on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation in Defense, Security, and Risk Management (SecDef’2018) will be held in conjunction with the ACM Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO) in Kyoto, Japan, July 15-19, 2018.

With the constant appearance of new threats, research in the areas of defense, security and risk management has acquired an increasing importance over the past few years. These new challenges often require innovative solutions and computational intelligence techniques can play a significant role in finding them.

We invite both completed and work in progress, with the aim to encourage communication between active researchers and practitioners to better understand the current scope of efforts within this domain. The ultimate goal is to understand, discuss, and help set future directions for computational intelligence in security and defense problems.

Please note the paper submission deadline for SecDef'2018 has been changed to April 3, 2018.
