Fifth International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature
Amsterdam, The Netherlands 
27-30 September 1998

The scientific content of the PPSN conference focuses on the topic of
problem solving paradigms gleaned from natural models, including (but
not limited to) organic evolution, neural network based learning
processes, immune systems, life and its properties in general, DNA
strands, chemical and physical processes.

PPSN-V will be held between 27-30 September 1998 in the Golden Tulip
Barbizon Palace Hotel, in the very heart of Amsterdam. On the first
day of the conference, September 27th (Sunday), eight tutorials will
be given by well-known experts in evolutionary computation and related
fields. The technical sessions will be held on 28, 29 and 30
September. Each day starts with an oral presentation from an invited
speaker addressing hot topics in the context of evolutionary
computation. The technical sessions contain 100 contributions which
were selected from 185 papers submitted to the conference organizers.

PPSN-V adjoins the Foundations of Genetic Algorithms 5 Workshop on
Theoretical Aspects of Evolutionary Computation (FOGA 5), held in
Leiden, the Netherlands, 24-26 September 1998.
