Table of Contents for the Late Breaking Papers: (.doc version) ; (PDF version)

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 2003 Conference (GECCO-2003) to be held on July 12- 16 (Saturday-Wednesday), 2003 at the Congress Plaza hotel in Chicago, 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, 2003.

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-2003, 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, please let us know with your submission. The decision about mode of presentation will be announced prior to the deadline.

Note that all papers printed in the Late Breaking Papers book must also be presented at GECCO-2003. At least one author of each Late Breaking Paper must register for GECCO-2003, 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.

LBP paper acceptance decisions will be made as soon as possible after receipt of the submission.

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.

we have extended the submission deadline
Late Breaking Papers must be RECEIVED in camera ready format to the offices of AAAI no later than 20 May.

Instructions for Presenters

Each meeting room will be equipped with an LCD and an overhead projector. The meeting rooms WILL NOT be equipped with laptop computers. It will be the responsibility of each presenter who would like to use the computer projectors to bring a laptop to plug into the projector at the time of their presentation. If a presenter is unable to bring a laptop, he or she may bring the presentation on transparencies for use on the overhead projector.

The LCD projectors will be the BenQ SL705X machine, which displays native XGA resolution ( 1024 x 768 ), and will accept lower or higher-resolution inputs up to 1280 x 1024.

Please note that full papers have a 30 minute total presentation time, including changeover. This includes time to connect the PC and its software to the LCD projector and session chairs will strictly enforce the 30 minute time slot. It is suggested to plan a 20 minute presentation, allotting 10 minutes for questions.
