The GECCO-2007 Program Committee invites submissions for full technical papers for GECCO-2007, to be held in London, England, July 7-11, 2007. Submissions are invited on substantial, original, and previously unpublished research on all aspects of genetic and evolutionary computation.

Submission Requirements:

The deadline for submitting papers is Wednesday, January 31, 2007.

Meet the Submission Deadline: The deadline for ARRIVAL of submissions is Wednesday, January 31, 2007.

Submit paper to the Submission Site: The registered user has a login and password, and is the contact about any paper registered by the user.  If you registered on the site and submitted a paper to GECCO 2006, your account is still active. To retrieve your password for that account, click the "Forget password?" link, which is to the right of the Login button.

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 However, if the submitted paper is accepted by GECCO, the authors agree that substantially the same material will not be published by another conference in the evolutionary computation field.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.

Submit a formatted electronic version of the paper, no more than 8 ACM template pages in length, and abstract of less than 200 to the Submission Site by Wednesday, January 31, 2007.

In order to make double blind reviewing possible, authors should omit their names and affiliations from the paper. Also, while the references should include all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, it should not include unpublished works. When referring to one's own work, use the third person rather than the first person. For example, say "Previously, Beyer [7] has shown that...", rather than "In our previous work [7] we have shown that...." Try to avoid including any information in the body of the paper or references that would identify the authors or their institutions. Such information can be added to the final camera-ready version for publication.

Please remember to include the Track category on your paper. The Track can be entered either directly under the title of your paper, or after the abstract. Please note, even though you are already required to select a Track category when submitting your paper to the software system, you are ALSO required to enter the Track name in your PDF file.

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 the Track Chair.

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 11, 2007
Register at least one author for the conference by the deadline for camera-ready papers: Wednesday, April 11, 2007
Attend the conference (at least one author)
Present the accepted paper at the conference

Review Process

Paper Acceptance

Notification of acceptance or rejection of submitted papers will be mailed to the registered user who submitted the paper by March 14, 2007.
Papers may be accepted as a full paper (8 pages), or as a poster (2-page abstract).

Camera-ready copy of accepted papers and posters must be received by the publisher in the USA by April 11, 2006. At least one author of each
accepted paper or poster must register for the conference by April 11, 2006, and is required to attend the conference and to present the work.

Each paper submitted to GECCO will be rigorously reviewed, in a double-blind review process, meaning that reviewers should not be able to infer the identities of the authors of the papers under review, and, of course, that authors will not know the identities of their reviewers.

One of at least 14 separate and independent program committees specializing in various aspects of genetic and evolutionary computation review submitted papers. These committees make their own final decisions on submitted papers for their areas, subject only to conference-wide space limitations and procedures.

Review criteria includes significance of the work, novelty, clarity, writing quality, and sufficiency of information to permit replication, if applicable.

GECCO notifies the first-named author (or other corresponding author designated by the authors at submission) of acceptance or rejection.

Best Paper Awards

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.
