      Call For Entries
      for 7th Annual "Humies" Awards
      for Human-Competitive Results
      Produced by Genetic and Evolutionary Computation

      Entries are hereby solicited for awards totaling $10,000 for the 2010
      awards for human-competitive results that have been produced by any
      form of genetic and evolutionary computation (including, but not
      limited to genetic algorithms, genetic programming, evolution
      strategies, evolutionary programming, learning classifier systems,
      grammatical evolution, gene expression programming, differential
      evolution, etc.) and that have been published in the open literature
      between the deadline for the previous competition and the deadline
      for the current competition.

      . Monday May 31, 2010 - Entries are due by e-mail
      . Monday June 21, 2010 - Finalists will be notified by e-mail
      . Wednesday June 30, 2010 - Finalists must submit their presentation
      . July 7-11, 2010 - Dates for GECCO conference in Portland, Oregon

      Techniques of genetic and evolutionary computation are being
      increasingly applied to difficult real-world problems - often
      yielding results that are not merely academically interesting,
      but competitive with the work done by creative and inventive
      humans. Starting at the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation
      Conference (GECCO) in Seattle in 2004, cash prizes have been
      awarded for human-competitive results that had been produced
      by some form of genetic and evolutionary computation in the
      previous year.

      This prize competition is based on published results. The
      publication may be a paper at the GECCO conference (i.e.,
      regular paper, poster paper, or any other full-length paper),
      a paper published anywhere in the open literature (e.g.,
      another conference, journal, technical report, thesis,
      book chapter, book), or a paper in final form that has
      been unconditionally accepted by a publication and is
      "in press" (that is, the entry must be identical to something
      that will be published imminently. The publication may not
      be an intermediate or draft version that is still subject to
      change or revision by the authors or editors. The publication
      must meet the usual standards of a scientific publication in
      that is must clearly describe a problem, the methods used to
      address the problem, the results obtained, and sufficient
      information to enable the work described to be replicated
      by an independent person.

      Cash prizes of $5,000 (gold), $3,000 (silver), and bronze
      (either one prize of $2,000 or two prizes of $1,000) will
      be awarded for the best entries that satisfy the criteria
      for human-competitiveness. The awards will be divided equally
      among co-authors unless the authors specify a different
      division at the time of submission. Prizes are paid by
      check in U.S. dollars.

      The competition will be held as part of the 2010 Genetic
      and Evolutionary Computation (GECCO) conference.
      Presentations of entries will be made at the Genetic and
      Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO). The awards and
      prizes will be announced and presented during the GECCO
