- CALL FOR PAPERS
Foundations of Genetic Algorithms
Orlando, Florida USA, 9-11 January 2009 (Friday-Sunday)
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
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.
