      Graduate Student Workshop

      Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2007)

      7-11 July 2007

      University College London, UK


      The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2007) 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, coevolution, artificial immune systems and more.

      This full day workshop will take place on the 8 July 2007 and will involve
      presentations by approximately 12 selected graduate students conducting
      research in some aspect of evolutionary computation. Students will make 15-20
      minute presentations to an audience that will include a 'mentor' panel of
      established researchers in evolutionary computation. Presentations will be
      followed by a 10 minute question and discussion period led by the mentor panel.

      The goal of this workshop is to assist students regarding their research:
      research methodology, goals, and plans. Students will also receive feedback on
      their presentation style. Other attendees will benefit by learning about
      current research, engaging in technical discussions and meeting researchers
      with related interests. Other students are encouraged to attend as a means of
      strengthening their own research.

      The group of presenting students will be chosen with the intent of creating a
      diverse group of students working on a broad range of topic areas. You are an
      ideal candidate if your thesis topic has already been approved by your
      university and you have been working on your thesis or dissertation for between
      6 and 18 months.

      Submissions should follow the general format of GECCO submission (see author
      guidelines on the main GECCO page
      http://www.sigevo.org/gecco-2007/papers.html). In addition, submissions should
      be accompanied by a brief cover letter including the student's current
      enrollment status (MSc or PhD student) and information regarding the extent of
      their research to date (e.g. number of months on the project, whether they have
      completed a proposal defense, or some similar indication of progress). Accepted
      papers will be included with the other workshop papers on the GECCO workshops
      CD-ROM. Awards will be presented for best work and best presentation.

      Presenters should plan to present both their current research results and their
      future research goals and plans, keeping in mind that the goal is to receive
      advice and suggestions on both the current status of their research and on
      their planed future research directions.

      Information for students including details about travel grants can be found on
