||Deadline for submission of Camera-Ready Electronic

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,
until the May 5, 2006 deadline.
Note that all papers included in the Late-Breaking
Papers CD-ROM must also be presented at GECCO-2006.

in special sessions held during GECCO-2006.
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

please be very attentive in carrying out the requirements for submission
by May 5, 2006.
