Mathematics for Evolutionary Computation

  • Hold Date: 2021-09-07 10:00 - 2021-09-08 10:20
  • Place: The event will be live-streaming by Zoom

*IMI Workshop of the Joint Research Projects

*The event will be live-streaming by Zoom


*This event will be held in the same Zoom room as the 20th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society for Evolutionary Computation, with the aim of promoting interdisciplinary exchange between mathematics and evolutionary computation. The online banquet will also be held in the same Zoom room. We would be grateful if you could also attend the meeting of the Japanese Society for Evolutionary Computation.
