This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature, PPSN 2008, held in Dortmund, Germany, in September 2008. The 114 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 206 submissions. The conference covers a wide range of topics, such as evolutionary computation, quantum computation, molecular computation, neural computation, artificial life, swarm intelligence, artificial ant systems, artificial immune systems, self-organizing systems, emergent behaviors, and applications to real-world problems. The paper are organized in topical sections on formal theory, new techniques, experimental analysis, multiobjective optimization, hybrid methods, and applications.We consider the problem of real-time data broadcast scheduling in pervasive systems with soft deadlines and constraints on the order in which data items should be broadcast to be useful. The broadcast schedule needs to be generated to provide a certain level of quality of service. ... which if not served within a specific time window may result in the data item having near zero utility when finally received.
