2nd Call for Participation: A programming competition involving Mathematics, Visual Arts, Machine Learning and Evolutionary Computation

Exploring a Design Space for Patterns and Tilings

a periodical programming competition involving Mathematics, Visual Arts, Ma=
chine Learning and Evolutionary Computation (student contributions are welc=
ome)


The goal of this periodical programming competition (with some price money)=
 is the exploration of a special design space of patterning & tiling method=
s and to make selected points of this space (methods that generate interest=
ing and aesthetic results) available for image editing so that contemporary=
 and future artists, illustrators, comic artists, designers, ... can use th=
em under an open source license (CC0 and the like). Eventually it is about =
an image tiling framework and tool with a growing number of tiling methods =
not just the 17 euclidean symmetry groups.

The design space relevant for image editing is based on the idea that patte=
rns and tiles can be generated by basic shapes (prototiles) together with a=
 CRMT command list approach that repeatedly clone, rotate and mirror a prot=
otile and translate it over a finite pattern plane. With this unified appro=
ach the centuries of mathematical and artistic knowledge about patters, til=
ings and ornaments will be usable in image editing for bitmap and vector im=
ages. By programming CRMT-image interpreter as standalone programs or Plug-=
ins in bitmap graphic programs (ImageMagick, GIMP, Photoshop, ...) and vect=
or graphic programs (Illustrator, Inkscape) very powerful artistic tools ca=
n be made that will be using a growing number of CRMT command lists to gene=
rate all sorts of patterns from input images.

The goal of the first competition is to reproduce known tilings from the Ti=
ling Database (http://www.tilingsearch.org/). This should be done by a lear=
ning process because such processes should be the basis for exploration the=
 design space and its extensions in further iterations of the competition. =
Technically the learning of a CRMT command list for a tiling is viewed as a=
 2D packing problem with the 2-objective function "gap -> 0 & overlap -> 0"=
..

The competition is originated in the field of Evolutionary Art therefore th=
e learning process should be preferably done with Evolutionary Computation =
(EC) methods like Genetic Programming but it is not restricted to this if t=
he learning environment with all aspects and parameters are published under=
 an open source license so that others can use it for further exploration. =
On the competition page there is also a sketch of a more conventional tree =
search approach that could be used and expanded by some intelligent methods=
 to restrict the search tree and to discover knowledge in the tile generati=
on process.

A detailed description of this programming competition with more technical =
details, winning conditions, price money, and future directions can be foun=
d under: http://de.evo-art.org/index.php?title=3DExploring_a_Design_Space_f=
or_Patterns_and_Tilings_Competition_2015

Registration starts on 01.05.2015 and ends on 15.12.2016. Contributions can=
 be made until 15.01.2016.

Comments and suggestions to all aspects of the competition project are appr=
eciated and should be addressed to Dr. G=FCnter Bachelier (guba at evo-art.=
org).

Program hangs on 2nd called Program (RETRN?)
Ok, I have a Signatory Search program (FSIGSRCH) that calls Employer Search (FIDSRCH) and then calls Contract Search (CMSRCH) then finally goes to the Signatory Update/Write Program (FSIGUPD). Ok the first time ran this with no records in my Signatory file, I selected the Employer, then selected a Contract and then got into my Maintenance program (FSIDUPD) and added a record to the signatory file. Great I think....now lets add a second record....I get to Employer Search (FIDSRCH), select an employer, sweet, and the contract selection screen comes up and I select a contract and I get the ...
