      ----------------------------------------------------------
      Although most evolutionary computation techniques are designed to
      generate specific solutions to a given instance of a problem, some
      of these techniques can be explored to solve more generic problems.
      The main objective of this workshop is to discuss evolutionary
      computation methods for generating generic algorithms and/or
      heuristics. These methods have the advantage of producing solutions
      that are applicable to any instance of a problem domain, instead
      of a solution specifically produced for a single instance of the problem.
      The areas of application of these methods may include, for instance,
      data mining, machine learning, optimization, bioinformatics,
      image processing, economics, etc.

      The workshop welcomes original submissions on all aspects of Evolutionary
      Computation for Designing Generic Algorithms, which include (but are
      not limited to) the following topics and themes:

      - Evolutionary algorithms for designing generic combinatorial
      optimization algorithms or heuristics
      - Evolutionary algorithms for designing generic machine learning algorithms
      or heuristics
      - Evolutionary algorithms for designing generic function optimization
      - Evolutionary algorithms for designing generic algorithms or heuristics
      for bioinformatics
      - (Meta-level) evolutionary algorithms for designing other (base-level)
      evolutionary algorithms
      - Empirical comparison of different hyper-heuristics
      - Theoretical analyses of hyper-heuristics
      - Automatic selection of algorithms' building blocks as a preprocessing step
      for the use of hyper-heuristics
      - Analysis of the trade-off between generality and effectiveness of different
      heuristics algorithms or heuristics produced by hyper-heuristics
      - Real-world applications of hyper-heuristics

      Paper Submission
      ----------------------------------------------------------

      Submitted papers should follow the ACM format, and not exceed 8 pages.
      Please see the GECCO 2011 information for authors for further details.
      However, note that the review process of the workshop is not double-blind.
      Hence, authors' information should appear in the paper.
      All accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and appear in the
      GECCO workshop volume. Proceedings of the workshop will be published on
      CD-ROM, and distributed at the conference.

      Papers should be submitted by 7 April, 2011 in PDF format to:
      [glpappa@...]
      and contain the subject "GECCO Workshop".
