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.

GECCO allows submissions of material that is substantially similar
to a paper being submitted contemporaneously for review in another conference.
However, if the submitted paper is accepted by GECCO, the authors agree that
substantially the same material will not be published by another conference
in the evolutionary computation field. Material may be later revised and
submitted to a journal, if permitted by the journal.
Each paper submitted to GECCO will be rigorously reviewed, in a double-blind
review process, meaning that reviewers should not be able to infer the
of the authors of the papers under review, and, of course, that authors will
not know the identities of their reviewers. Each submitted paper will
by one of at least 15 separate and independent program committees specializing
in various aspects of genetic and evolutionary computation. These committees
make their own final decisions on submitted papers for their areas, subject
only to conference-wide space limitations and procedures. Review criteria
include significance of the work, technical soundness, novelty,
quality, and sufficiency of information to permit replication, if applicable.
ACCEPT AUTHOR AGREEMENT
By submitting a paper, the author(s) agree that, if their paper is
accepted, they will:
1. Submit a final, revised, camera-ready version to the publisher by
2. Monday, April 18, 2011
3. Register at least one author to attend the conference by Monday,
May 2, 2011
4. Attend the conference (at least one author)
5. Present the accepted paper at the conference
Dublin is the lively capital of Ireland and the perfect GECCO destination. It
is served by several low-cost airlines, offering a wide range of flight deals,
and provides several accommodation options. The social event will take place
at IrelandÕs No. 1 international visitor attraction, the Guinness Storehouse.
