      FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

      Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference GECCO-2002

      July 9-13, 2002 (Tuesday - Saturday)
      New York City, New York, USA

      http://www.isgec.org/GECCO-2002

      SUBMISSION DEADLINE: WEDNESDAY JANUARY 23, 2002
      **********************************************************************

      The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2002) will
      present the latest high-quality results in the growing field of
      genetic and evolutionary computation.

      Papers are now invited and should be to be received no later than
      WEDNESDAY JANUARY 23, 2002 (In TWO weeks!). See further information
      below.

      Each paper submitted to GECCO will be rigorously reviewed, in a blind
      review process, by one specialized program committee. Topics of
      interest include genetic algorithms (GA); genetic programming (GP);
      evolution strategies (ES); evolutionary programming (EP); evolvable
      hardware (EH); evolutionary robotics (ER); real-world applications
      (RWA); learning classifier systems (LCS); DNA and molecular computing
      (DNA); artificial life, adaptive behavior, agents, and ant colony
      optimization (AAAA); methodology, pedagogy, and philosophy (MPP);
      evolutionary scheduling and routing (ESR); search-based software
      engineering (SBSE).



      WHAT'S NEW

      The conference will be held at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City
      (www.theroosevelthotel.com). The hotel offers conference rates of
      $149. A limited number of rooms is available at $129. These are great
      values in a hotel a few blocks from Times Square!

      Drafts of the review forms and instructions to reviewers are available
      on the web site. These are intended to give authors information about
      the reviewing criteria that they may find useful in preparing their
      submission.


      FREE TUTORIALS
      Thirty-one tutorials by recognized experts on diverse areas of GEC are
      scheduled for presentation on Wednesday, July 10, 2002. All tutorials
      are FREE to all registered GECCO attendees. (see listing and updates on
      www.isgec.org/GECCO-2002).

      FREE WORKSHOPS
      In addition to a Graduate Student Workshop, twelve workshops on a
      variety of EC-related topics will be held during GECCO-2002, on
      Tuesday, July 9. For more information see the web pages
      www.isgec.org/GECCO-2002/workshops.

      EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTING IN INDUSTRY
      In addition to the regular peer-reviewed Real-World Application
      sessions, there will be a special track featuring invited and
      contributed tutorials, including case studies from industry dedicated
      to applications of evolutionary computation. For more information
      contact Dave Davis (david.davis@...) and Rajkumar Roy
      (r.roy@...)

      HOW TO SUBMIT A PAPER TO GECCO

      The deadline for ARRIVAL at the physical address below of the eight
      (8) paper copies of each submitted paper is WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23,
      2002. The address is GECCO-2002, c/o AAAI, 445 Burgess Drive, Menlo
      Park, CA 94025, USA. Phone 650-328-3123.

      Submitted papers are to be in single-spaced, 10-point type on 8-1/2" x
      11" OR A4 paper with 1" margins at top and 3/4" margin at left, right,
      and bottom, and are a maximum of eight (8) pages. Papers may not be
      submitted by email or fax. It is preferred (but not required) that
