      EuroGP 2012
      (one week to deadline)

      -------> STRICT DEADLINE!! <-------

      15th European Conference on Genetic Programming
      11-13 April 2012, Malaga - Spain

      Submission deadline: December 7, 2011

      ------> IMPORTANT NOTICE: This is a *STRICT DEADLINE*.
      ------> *NO FURTHER EXTENSIONS* will be given!

      EuroGP is the premier annual conference on Genetic Programming. EuroGP
      is always a very enjoyable event, held together with the other main
      european events on Evolutionary Computation (EvoBio, EvoCOP,
      EvoApplications, EvoMusArt), collectively designated as EvoStar (Evo*).
      EvoStar 2012 takes place in Malaga, Spain, the capital of the Costa del
      Sol and one of the most cosmopolitan and open cities in Europe, widely
      known for its superb weather, food, and hospitality. It offers an
      excellent environment for participants to enjoy their visit, from the
      academic and the social point of view.

      EuroGP 2012 seeks high quality papers on topics strongly related to the
      evolution of computer programs, including but not limited to:
      * Theoretical developments
      * Empirical studies of GP performance and behaviour
      * Landscape analysis of GP
      * Algorithms, representations and operators
      * Applications of GP to real-life problems
      * Evolutionary design
      * Evolutionary robotics
      * Tree-based GP
      * Linear GP
      * Graph-based GP
      * Grammar-based GP
      * Evolvable hardware
      * Self-reproducing programs
      * Multi-population GP
      * Multi-objective GP
      * Fast/Parallel GP (e.g., GPU implementation of GP)
      * Probabilistic GP (e.g., combining ideas of estimation of
      distribution algorithms and GP)
      * Evolution of various classes of automata or machine (e.g.
      cellular automata, finite state machines, pushdown automata, Turing
      * Software Engineering and GP: using GP to evolve complete programs
      (e.g., including variables, loops, recursion) and using SE methods
      (e.g., software design) to improve GP
      * Object-oriented GP
      * Hybrid architectures including GP components
      * Unconventional evolvable computation

      The submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the
      program committee. The reviewing process will be double-blind, so please
      omit information about the authors in the submitted paper. Accepted
      papers will be presented orally or as posters at the conference and will
      be published by Springer in the LNCS series.

      The papers which receive the best reviews will be nominated for the Best
      Paper Award. Authors of selected papers may be invited to submit
      extended versions of their work to the Springer journal GPEM - Genetic
      Programming and Evolvable Machines (http://www.springer.com/10710). Last
      year, four best papers were selected for a special issue of GPEM to be
      published in early 2012.

      To celebrate the 10th anniversary of EvoBio, EuroGP encourages
      submissions applying genetic programming to problems in computational
      biology and new biologically inspired extensions of the genetic
      programming framework for a special joint session of EuroGP with EvoBio.
      These papers can be submitted either to EuroGP or EvoBio, and the
      authors of the best ones will be invited to submit extended versions of
      their work to a special issue of GPEM.
