      Hi All,

      After the firefighters battling the MyDoom poison succeeded in
      blocking my attempts at sending the following call for papers to
      this list, I'm hoping the following will not be considered a set of
      conspicuous packets... again!

      Although the 26th January deadline has passed, there's no need to
      despair: there is still a possibility of presenting your paper at
      GECCO-2004

      The purpose of late-breaking papers at GECCO is to provide
      conference attendees with information about research that was
      initiated, enhanced, improved, or completed after the original
      (now-past) paper submission deadline. Late-breaking papers are
      presented orally in a special track at the conference and the full
      paper is published as part of the conference's CD ROM.

      GECCO is the conference to meet, talk to, and listen to the largest
      group of researchers in the field of the genetic and evolutionary
      computation. GECCO-2004 will be held on June 26-30, 2004
      (Saturday-Wednesday) in Seattle. Also, this year, the NASA/DoD
      Conference on Evolvable Hardware (EH-2004) will be co-located
      with GECCO-2004 in Seattle and adjacent in time with GECCO.
      EH-2004 will be June 24-26 (Thursday-Saturday).

      Hope to see you in Seattle in June,

      -Maarten-

                LATE BREAKING PAPERS CHAIR: Maarten Keijzer


      Papers describing late-breaking developments in the field of genetic
      and evolutionary computation are being solicited for presentation at
      the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation 2004 Conference
      (GECCO-2004) to be held on June 26-30 (Saturday-Wednesday), 2004 at
      the Red Lion hotel in Seattle, Washington 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 21, 2004 deadline.

      Note that all papers included in the Late Breaking Papers CD-ROM
      must also be presented at GECCO-2004. At least one author of each
      Late Breaking Paper must register for GECCO-2004, or the paper will
      not appear in the Late Breaking Papers CD-ROM.

      We currently plan that late-breaking papers will be presented orally
      in special sessions held during GECCO-2004.

      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.

      SUBMISSION PROCEDURE
      Late Breaking Papers must be RECEIVED in electronic (PDF)
      camera-ready format no later than 21 May 2004. Late-breaking papers
      must be submitted in camera-ready form in accordance with the
      camera-ready GECCO- 2004 format specifications that can be found at
      the GECCO-2004 web site. Late-breaking papers should be no more than
      TWELVE (12) pages in length.

      To submit please: All 4 of the following items must be submitted by
      May 21, 2004.  Because the late-breaking papers are published on a
      very tight time schedule, please be very attentive in carrying out
      each of the following 4 steps correctly no later than May 21, 2004:

      (1)     Send a PDF electronic copy of your paper as an email
      attachment to the LBP chair, Maarten Keijzer (email:
      mkeijzer@...). Late-breaking papers must be submitted in
      camera-ready form in accordance with the camera-ready
      GECCO-2004 format specifications that can be found at the GECCO-2004
      web site. Late-breaking papers should be no more than 12 pages in
      length. Please be very careful about formatting your paper (and
      testing it, by printing it out) because of the very tight time
      schedule. No paper-based submissions can be accepted.

      (2)     FAX a SIGNED "permission to publish" form (that can be
      downloaded from the GECCO-2004 web site) to the American Association
      for Artificial Intelligence (FAX: +1-650-321-4457). No paper-based
      submissions can be accepted.

      (3)     Send a plain text email to both gecco04abs@... and
      mkeijzer@... including the following information:
      --- First Name, Last Name, and e-mail for all the authors of the
      paper
      --- Paper title
      --- Abstract
      --- Name of the proposed presenter of the paper

      (4)     At least one presenter of the paper must have paid the
      registration fee and be registered for GECCO-2004 by May 21, 2004.
      Registration may be accomplished in several ways (including FAX and
      credit card).

      Since there will be no opportunity for revisions, authors should be
      especially careful that their original submission is fully compliant
      with all requirements above. Producing a PDF version of your
      manuscript: PDF documents can be produced either by using commercial
      software available from Adobe or by using free conversion tools for
      Windows or the ps2pdf and pdflatex utilities under Unix/Linux (with
      links at the GECCO-2004 web site). In addition, recent versions of
      MS Word may be able to save directly in PDF format. Please, preview
      your PDF file with acrobat reader to check that all the fonts and
      figures are properly reproduced before submitting the manuscript.
