      CALL FOR PAPERS

      FOGA X

      Foundations of Genetic Algorithms

      Orlando, Florida USA, 9-11 January 2009 (Friday-Sunday)

      http://www.sigevo.org/foga-2009

      Extended Deadline: September 1, 2008

      We invite submissions of extended abstracts for the tenth
      Foundations of Genetic Algorithms, sponsored by ACM SIGEVO.
      FOGA focuses on theoretical foundations of evolutionary
      computation. It will be held from Friday, January 9 until
      Sunday January 11, 2009 in Orlando, Florida in the USA.
      Attendance will be limited to individuals who have submitted
      papers, or those requesting attendance in advance. Students
      are particularly encouraged to participate.
      Submissions should address theoretical issues in evolutionary
      computation. Papers that consider foundational issues,
      place analysis in the context of the wider community of
      theoretical computer science, or focus on bridging the gap
      between theory and practice are particularly encouraged.
      These topics do not preclude the acceptance of papers that
      use an experimental approach, but such work should be
      directed toward validation of suitable hypotheses concerning
      foundational matters.
      Extended abstracts should be between 10-12 pages long.
      To submit, please email a compressed postscript or a PDF file
      to foga09@... no later than Monday, September 1, 2008.
      In their submission message, authors should provide the
      title of the paper, as well as the name, address and
      affiliation of the author(s). Submitted papers should use
      standard spacing and margins, with 11pt or 12pt font for
      the main text. Authors using LATEX should either use the
      standard article style file or the FOGA style file which can
      be found at the conference web-site. A double-blind
      reviewing process will be employed, so authors are asked
      to remove references to themselves from their paper.
      Notification will be in early November, and drafts of the
      full paper will be due one month after notification. These
      drafts will be distributed as part of a preprint to
      participants at FOGA. Authors of papers presented at the
      FOGA workshop will be asked to contribute final versions
      of their papers (based on discussion/feedback at the meeting)
      as part of the final volume.
