      15th International Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA)
      and the 11th Genetic Programming Conference (GP)
      ----------------------------------------------------------

      The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2006) will
      present
      the latest high-quality results in the growing field of genetic and
      evolutionary computation. Topics include: genetic algorithms, genetic
      programming, evolution strategies, evolutionary programming, real-world
      applications, learning classifier systems and other genetics-based
      machine
      learning, evolvable hardware, artificial life, adaptive behavior, ant
      colony
      optimization, swarm intelligence, biological applications, evolutionary
      robotics, evolutionary combinatorial optimization, coevolution,
      artificial
      immune systems, and more.

      Each paper submitted to GECCO-2006 will be rigorously reviewed,
      in a double-blind review process, by one of the 16 separate and
      independent specialized program committees that make final decisions,
      subject only to conference-wide space limitations and procedures.
