Papers describing late-breaking
developments in the field of genetic and evolutionary computation
are being solicited for presentation at the Genetic and Evolutionary
Computation 2004 Conference (GECCO-2004) to be held on June
26-30 (Saturday-Wednesday), 2004 at the Red Lion hotel in
Seattle, Washington USA, and inclusion in a special CD-ROM
to be distributed to all attendees of the conference. This
special CD-ROM is distinct from the conference proceedings.
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 2004.
Late-breaking papers will be briefly examined for relevance
and minimum standards of acceptability, but will not be peer
reviewed in detail. Paper acceptance decisions will be made
as soon as possible after receipt of the submission, so late-breaking
papers may be submitted any time between now and the May 21,
Note that all papers included in the Late Breaking Papers
CD-ROM must also be presented at GECCO-2004. At least one
author of each Late Breaking Paper must register for GECCO-2004,
or the paper will not appear in the Late Breaking Papers CD-ROM.
We currently plan that late-breaking papers will be presented
orally in special sessions held during GECCO-2004.
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 journal-.
