Breaking Paper or, if the paper describes
your experiences on applying EC in industry,
to the Evolutionary Computation

GECCO 2002 REVIEWER REVIEW

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

IN THIS ORDER: items 1) & 2) (repeated) and enough BLANK
lines left for items 3) - 6); then items 7) - 9):

Artificial Life, Adaptive Behavior, Agents and Ant Colony
Evolutionary scheduling and routing;
Methodology, Pedagogy, and Philosophy;

50-200-word abstract of the paper (at beginning of paper),
text of the paper (including all figures, tables, acknowledgments,
and appendices, if any), and
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

the deadline for camera-ready papers, and at least one
author will attend and present the accepted paper at the

that has not been previously published by conferences, journals,
or edited books in the evolutionary computation field.
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substantially the same material will not be published by
another conference in the evolutionary computation field.
(Material may be later revised and submitted to a journal
if permitted by the journal involved.).
