Full Day

Acceptance notification: March 19, 2004
Camera ready deadline: April 2, 2004

This single day workshop will involve approximately 10 selected students researching any aspect of Evolutionary Algorithms and presenting a a 15-20 minute synopisis of their current research to a mentor panel, other students and other selected participants. Each presentation will be followed by questions and discussion prompted by the mentor panel. The panel will consist of a rotating group of well known and established researchers in Evolutionary Computation. A limited number of other students will also be invited to attend the workshop where they will have an opportunity to join in discussions.

This format is intended to offer feedback from the panel to the presenters regarding their results, research methodology, future directions and presentation style. It should benefit other attendees in terms of learning about the work of others, engaging in technical discussions and meeting researchers with related interests. Workshops with approximately the same goals and format were held at previous GP/GECCO events and were strongly endorsed by both faculty and student participants.

The group of presenting students will be chosen by the panel with the intent of creating a diverse group of students working on a broad range of topic areas. You are an ideal candidate if your thesis topic has already been approved by your university and you have been working on your thesis for between 6 and 18 months. You are also a strong candidate if evolutionary computation has a role in an undergraduate project or thesis.

Importantly, even if you are not chosen to present, you will be considered for invitation to the workshop and you can expect to derive a lot of benefit from attending. Participation will be limited to preserve the discussion quality of the workshop but students who submit a paper will receive highest consideration. The papers submitted by students who participate in the workshop and/or presentation sessions will be printed in the GECCO Workshop Papers book. Awards will also be presented for best work, and best presentation.
