Call for Late-Breaking Papers for
Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference 2002

DEADLINE: Monday, June 03, 2002

Papers describing late-breaking developments in the field of genetic and evolutionary computation are being solicited for inclusion in a special paper-bound book to be distributed to all attendees of the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation 2002 Conference (GECCO-2002) to be held on July 9 - 13 (Tuesday-Saturday), 2002 at The Roosevelt Hotel New York City, New York, USA. This special book is distinct from the conference proceedings.

The purpose of late-breaking papers is to provide conference attendees with information about research that was initiated, enhanced, improved, or completed after the original paper submission deadline in January, 2002.

We had an outstanding number of regular paper submissions, so the conference schedule will be tight, but we currently plan that late-breaking papers will be presented orally in special sessions held during GECCO-2002, as they were in the past, so long as space and time permit (otherwise, poster presentation will be required). If you prefer to present your paper as a poster at the lively poster session scheduled for Friday July 12, please let us know with your submission. The decision about mode of presentation will be announced prior to the June 3 deadline.

Note that all papers accepted for publication in the Late Breaking Papers book must also be presented at GECCO-2002. At least one author of each Late Breaking Paper must register for GECCO-2002, or the paper will not appear in the Late Breaking Papers volume. The preferred procedure is for one or more authors to register before submitting the Late Breaking Paper, or to submit their registration form and payment together with the Late Breaking Paper. Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection on June 5, and will have until June 10 to have the AAAI receive the registration form and payment, or the paper will not appear in the special volume.

Late-breaking papers will be briefly examined for relevance and minimum standards of acceptability, but will not be peer reviewed in detail. Authors will individually retain copyright (and all other rights) to their late-breaking papers and should feel free to submit them (either before or after the above deadline) for publication by other conferences or journals.

Late-breaking papers must be submitted in camera-ready form in accordance with the camera-ready GECCO-2002 format specifications that can be found here. Late-breaking papers should be no more than EIGHT (8) pages in length. Please send TWO camera-ready copies (printed with very high quality by laser printer) and the SIGNED "permission to publish" form that can be downloaded here to:
