                                       Call For Entries

                   for 8th Annual (2011) "Humies" Awards

                      for Human-Competitive Results

         Produced by Genetic and Evolutionary Computation

                        www.human-competitive.org

       

                            To be Held at

         Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference

                               (GECCO)

                           Dublin, Ireland

       

       

      Entries are hereby solicited for awards totaling $10,000 for the 2011

      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.

       

      The competition will be held as part of the 2011 Genetic

      and Evolutionary Computation (GECCO) conference.

      CALL FOR ENTRIES

      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.
