Genetic and Evolutionary Computation: Medical Applications provides an overview of the range of GEC techniques being applied to medicine and healthcare in a context that is relevant not only for existing GEC practitioners but also those from other disciplines, particularly health professionals. There is rapidly increasing interest in applying evolutionary computation to problems in medicine, but to date no text that introduces evolutionary computation in a medical context. By explaining the basic introductory theory, typical application areas and detailed implementation in one coherent volume, this book will appeal to a wide audience from software developers to medical scientists. Centred around a set of nine case studies on the application of GEC to different areas of medicine, the book offers an overview of applications of GEC to medicine, describes applications in which GEC is used to analyse medical images and data sets, derive advanced models, and suggest diagnoses and treatments, finally providing hints about possible future advancements of genetic and evolutionary computation in medicine. Explores the rapidly growing area of genetic and evolutionary computation in context of its viable and exciting payoffs in the field of medical applications. Explains the underlying theory, typical applications and detailed implementation. Includes general sections about the applications of GEC to medicine and their expected future developments, as well as specific sections on applications of GEC to medical imaging, analysis of medical data sets, advanced modelling, diagnosis and treatment. Features a wide range of tables, illustrations diagrams and photographs.

This book presents an extensive variety of multi-objective problems across diverse disciplines, along with statistical solutions using multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs). The topics discussed serve to promote a wider understanding as well as the use of MOEAs, the aim being to find good solutions for high-dimensional real-world design applications. The book contains a large collection of MOEA applications from many researchers, and thus provides the practitioner with detailed algorithmic direction to achieve good results in their selected problem domain.

ICDM / MLDM Medaillie (limited edition) Meissner Porcellan, the “White Gold” of King August the Strongest of Saxonia ICDM 2008 was the eighth event of the Industrial Conference on Data Mining held in Leipzig (www.data-mining-forum.de). For this edition the Program Committee received 116 submissions from 20 countries. After the peer-review process, we accepted 36 high-quality papers for oral presentation, which are included in these proceedings. The topics range from aspects of classification and prediction, clustering, Web mining, data mining in medicine, applications of data mining, time series and frequent pattern mining, and association rule mining. Thirteen papers were selected for poster presentations that are published in the ICDM Poster Proceeding Volume. In conjunction with ICDM there were three workshops focusing on special hot application-oriented topics in data mining. The workshop Data Mining in Life Science DMLS 2008 was held the third time this year and the workshop Data Mining in Marketing DMM 2008 ran for the second time this year. Additionally, we introduced an International Workshop on Case-Based Reasoning for Multimedia Data CBR-MD.
