Call for Papers
The GECCO-2006 Program Committee invites submissions of full technical papers
for GECCO-2006, to be held in Seattle, Washington, USA, July 8-12, 2006. Submissions
are invited on substantial, original, and previously unpublished research on
all aspects of genetic and evolutionary computation.
Please note: The submission deadline has

Meet the Submission Deadline: The deadline for
ARRIVAL of submissions is Wednesday, February 1st, 2006.
Register at the Submission Site: https://ssl.linklings.net/conferences/gecco2006/.
The registered user has a login and password, and is the contact about any
paper registered by the user.
Submit substantially new work: The material in a paper must represent
substantially new work that has not been previously published by conferences,
journals, or edited books in the genetic and evolutionary computation field.
GECCO allows submissions of material that is substantially similar to a paper
being submitted contemporaneously for review in another conference. However,
if the submitted paper is accepted by GECCO, the authors agree that substantially
the same material will not be published by another conference in the evolutionary
computation field. Material may be later revised and submitted to a journal,
if permitted by the journal.
formatted electronic version of the paper,
and abstract of less than 200 words, to the Submission Site by Wednesday,
February 1st, 2006, 22:00 Pacific Standard Time.
Submissions received after the deadlines, or that
do not meet the length or ACM formatting requirements
will not be accepted for review.
If there are problems with the electronic submission,
gecco-admin will contact the registered user by email. If a registered user
believes there is a problem with a submission, the user should contact gecco-admin.
The last day for author inquiries regarding lost submissions is January
Accept Author Agreement: By submitting a paper, the author(s) agree
that, if their paper is accepted, they will:
- Submit a final, revised, camera-ready version by the deadline for camera-ready
papers: Wednesday, April 19, 2006.
- Register at least one author for the conference by the deadline for camera-ready
papers: Friday, April 14, 2006.
- Attend the conference (at least one author)
- Present the accepted paper at the conference
Each paper submitted to GECCO will be rigorously reviewed
by one of the separate and independent program
committees specializing in various aspects of genetic and evolutionary
computation. These committees make their own final decisions on submitted
papers for their areas, subject only to conference-wide space limitations
and procedures. The GECCO review process is "double blind," meaning
that reviewers should not be able to infer the identities of the authors
the papers that they are reviewing (and, of course, that authors will not
know the identities of their reviewers). Review criteria will include significance
of the work, novelty, clarity, writing quality, and sufficiency of information
to permit replication (if applicable).
Best Paper Awards
Notification of acceptance or rejection of submitted
papers will be mailed to the registered user who submitted the paper by March
24, 2006. Camera-ready copy of accepted papers must be received by the publisher
in the USA by April 19, 2006. At least one author of each accepted paper must
register for the conference by April 14, 2006, and is required to attend the
conference to present the work.
Each track chair will nominate
the best papers from their track for "Best Paper of GECCO Awards". GECCO
attendees will select the best papers by ballot during the conference.
Some of these papers will
be invited to submit revised and extended versions of their papers to special
issue of related journals.

Notes for Registered Users
- A registered user may submit more than one paper.
- The registered user is able to create their account (login and password)
at one time, and submit the paper later.
- The registered also is able to enter authors, select a track, and keywords,
but download the paper later.
