The two volume set LNCS 7491 and 7492 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature, PPSN 2012, held in Taormina, Sicily, Italy, in September 2012. The total of 105 revised full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 226 submissions. The meeting began with 5 workshops which offered an ideal opportunity to explore specific topics in evolutionary computation, bio-inspired computing and metaheuristics. PPSN 2012 also included 8 tutorials. The papers are organized in topical sections on evolutionary computation; machine learning, classifier systems, image processing; experimental analysis, encoding, EDA, GP; multiobjective optimization; swarm intelligence, collective behavior, coevolution and robotics; memetic algorithms, hybridized techniques, meta and hyperheuristics; and applications.We compare the performance of these algorithms on a dynamic optimization problem where we can show that MMAS is able to ... There are many analyses of MMAS on static variants of OneMax (see, for example, [13, 7, 4, 11, 12, 10, 17]), but so far there is no theoretical work on the performance of ... We construct a amazea, in which the (1+1)-EA cannot track the optimum and will get lost with high probability.
