version) ; (PDF
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.
