for Abstract Submission
The Evolutionary Computation
in Practice (ECP) track at Genetic and Evolutionary Computation
(GECCO) is dedicated to the discussion of issues related
to practical application of Evolutionary Computation.
For the past four years, members from industry, governmental
agencies and other public sectors have participated in
presentations and discussions describing how evolution-related
technologies are being used to solve real-world problems.
Moreover, subjects on bridging academic training and
real-world usage are also addressed.
We invite you to present work that employs evolution-related technologies to
solve real-world problems. We are accepting one to two page abstracts for review,
with the following themes:
· Real-world application success story;
· Real-world application lessons learned;
· Academic case study in real-world applications;
· Expectations of academic training from industry;
The subject domains include, but not limited to the following:
· Energy and Resources;
· Government and Military;
· Academic training for real-world applications;
· Computer Graphics and Gaming;
The applied technology can be any evolution-related algorithms or its hybrid
with other techniques. For a list of evolution-related technologies, please
refer to this website. Examples of other technologies are agent-based modeling,
simulated annealing, tabu search, neural networks, fuzzy logic, statistical
modeling, and decision trees.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Invitation for Abstract Submission solicited a one- to two-page abstract
for review. Are these abstracts in lieu of, or in addition to, submission
of a full-length paper to the GECCO conference itself?
- ECP abstracts review is independent of GECCO papers review. Unlike the main
conference which only accepts papers with high technical quality, ECP presentations
place emphasis on deploying solutions for real-world problems. Depending on
the application area of the work, the abstract is reviewed by the session organizer,
who decides if the work suits the ECP theme and invite the authors to present
already prepared a 6-page paper. Would submission of this paper (rather than
an abstract) be acceptable?
abstracts accepted for the ECP track be published as full papers (i.e., 8-10
pages) in the GECCO Proceedings?
- No. Since ECP abstracts are not reviewed the same way as
that of GECCO papers, they will not be published in the GECCO Proceedings.
Previously, we either have published ECP abstracts/papers in a separate volume
or published the power point presentations with GECCO Workshop Proceedings
in a CD. We have not decided how we will handle publications this year.
is the relationship between the ECP track and the
Real World Applications track, if any?
- The Real-World Applications track
at GECCO accepts papers with high technical quality
like that of the other GECCO track papers. The ECP
track is generally suitable for researchers and managers
from industry, who have less time to spend writing
a complete technical paper but still would like to
relate a significant success in using the technology
to solve a real-world problem. Therefore, if academic
publication is important to you, we suggest that
you submit your papers to the GECCO real-world applications
