Patterns and Tilings Competition

Günter Bachelier asked if I might publicize this to the Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines community, and I do think that there may be interest.

The goal of this competition is to produce, presumably by evolution, 2D tiling patterns with no gaps or overlaps, with the initial targets being the known tilings that are available in a public database. The competition apparently originated in work in evolutionary art, but it may be relevant to other image processing applications as well. 

For more information see the call for participation and technical details.
