Evolutionary Computation (EC) involves the study of problem solving and op- mization techniques inspired by principles of natural evolution and genetics. EC has been able to draw the attention of an increasing number of researchers and practitioners in several ?elds. Evolutionary algorithms have in particular been showntobee?ectivefordi?cultcombinatorialoptimizationproblemsappearing in various industrial, economic, and scienti?c domains. This volume contains the proceedings of EvoCOP 2004, the 4th European ConferenceonEvolutionaryComputationinCombinatorialOptimization.Itwas held in Coimbra, Portugal, on April 5-7, 2004, jointly with EuroGP 2004, the 7th European Conference on Genetic Programming, and EvoWorkshops 2004, which consisted of the following six individual workshops: EvoBIO, the 2nd - ropean Workshop on Evolutionary Bioinformatics; EvoCOMNET, the 1st - ropean Workshop on Evolutionary Computation in Communications, Networks, and Connected Systems; EvoHOT, the 1st European Workshop on Hardware Optimisation; EvoIASP, the 6th European Workshop on Evolutionary Com- tation in Image Analysis and Signal Processing; EvoMUSART, the 2nd Eu- pean Workshop on Evolutionary Music and Art; and EvoSTOC, the 1st Eu- pean Workshop on Evolutionary Algorithms in Stochastic and Dynamic En- ronments.
