Each paper submitted to GECCO will be rigorously reviewed, in a double blind review process, by one of at least seven 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.

Paper submission deadline is January 24, 2001. See below for details.

The deadline for ARRIVAL at the physical address below of the eight (8) paper copies of each submitted paper is WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 24, 2001. The address is GECCO-2001, c/o AAAI, 445 Burgess Drive, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Phone 650-328-3123. Submitted papers are to be in single-spaced, 10-point type on 8 ½" x 11" OR A4 paper with 1" margins at top and ¾"margin at left, right, and bottom. Papers may not be submitted by e-mail or fax. Each paper MUST include these 9 items: 1) - 6) on a single cover page NOT sent to reviewers. Next page begins a maximum total of eight (8) pages, containing, IN THIS ORDER: items 1) & 2) (repeated) and enough BLANK lines left for items 3) - 6); then items 7) - 9):

  NOTE: This year the review process is "double blind," meaning that
reviewers should not be able to infer the identities of the authors of the
papers that they are reviewing (and of course that authors will not know
the identities of their reviewers). Author names and affiliations must not
appear on the normal "page 1" of submitted papers, but should appear
instead on a separate first page to be removed by AAAI for the blind review
process. Authors should also be careful to avoid identifying information in
headers, footers, etc., and should delete their names from citations to
papers that were obviously written by the same authors. Of course no such
"anonymizing" process is foolproof, but authors are encouraged to do their
best to insure the integrity of the double blind review process. Note that
AAAI will not be able to remove names/affiliations after papers are
submitted; this is the responsibility of the authors.

  1. the paper's category (ONE of these): Genetic Algorithms; Genetic Programming; Evolvable Hardware; Classifier Systems; Evolution Strategies; Evolutionary Programming; DNA, Molecular and Quantum Computing; Real-World Applications; Artificial Life, Adaptive Behavior and Agents; Evolutionary Robotics; Ant Colony Optimization; Evolutionary Scheduling and Routing; Methodology, Pedagogy, and Philosophy; and any other categories later added on this web site.
  2. title of paper,
  3. author name(s),
  4. author physical address(es),
  5. author e-mail address(es),
  6. author phone number(s),
  7. a 50-200-word abstract of the paper (at beginning of paper),
  8. the text of the paper (including all figures, tables, acknowledgments, and appendices, if any), and
  9. references (cited).

Review criteria will include significance of the work, novelty, clarity, writing quality, and sufficiency of information to permit replication (if applicable). The first-named author (or other corresponding author designated by the authors when submitting) will be notified of acceptance or rejection (on approximately the first week of March, 2001). It is preferred (but not required) that the format of submitted papers roughly follow the required format for final camera-ready papers. The required style for the final camera-ready papers is described at:

Different numbers of pages may be allocated to accepted papers based on the policies of the various separate program tracks of the conference. The deadline for final camera-ready version of accepted papers will be announced (and will be approximately the first week of April, 2001). The conference proceedings will be published in book form distributed at the conference. By submitting a paper, the author(s) agree that, if their paper is accepted,

  1. they will submit a final revised camera-ready version by the deadline for camera-ready papers (in early April, 2001),
  2. they will register at least one author by the deadline for camera-ready papers, and
  3. at least one author will attend and present the accepted paper at the conference.

The material in papers must represent substantially new work that has not been previously published by conferences, journals, or edited books in the evolutionary computation field. GECCO permits a paper to be submitted that is substantially similar to a paper being contemporaneously submitted for review in another conference; however, if the submitted paper is accepted by the GECCO conference, the authors agree that substantially the same material will not be published by an-ther conference in the evolutionary computation field. (Material may be later revised and submitted to a journal if permitted by the journal involved.).
