Call for Late-Breaking Papers for
Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference 2005

Papers describing late-breaking developments in the field of genetic and evolutionary computation are being solicited for presentation at the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation 2005 Conference (GECCO-2005) to be held on June 25-29 (Saturday-Wednesday), 2005 at the Loews L'Enfant Plaza Hotel in Washington, D.C. USA, and inclusion in a special CD-ROM to be distributed to all attendees of the conference. This special CD-ROM is distinct from the conference proceedings.

Late-breaking papers will be briefly examined for relevance and minimum standards of acceptability, but will not be peer reviewed in detail. Paper acceptance decisions will be made as soon as possible after receipt of the submission, so late-breaking papers may be submitted any time between now and the May 6, 2005 deadline.

Note that all papers included in the Late Breaking Papers CD-ROM must also be presented at GECCO-2005. At least one author of each Late Breaking Paper must register for GECCO-2005, or the paper will not appear in the Late Breaking Papers CD-ROM.

All late-breaking papers will be presented orally in special sessions held during GECCO-2005.

Authors will individually retain copyright (and all other rights) to their late-breaking papers and should feel free to submit them (either before or after the above deadline) for publication by other conferences or journals.
