      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      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 and
      heuristics, 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 2012 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 28 March, 2012 in PDF format to:
      [John.Woodward @ nottingham.edu.cn]
      and contain the subject "GECCO Workshop".
