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

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the same material will not be published by another conference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
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works of the authors, it should not include unpublished
When referring to one's own work, use the third person
rather than the
first person. For example, say "Previously, Beyer  has shown
that...", rather than "In our previous work  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
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
If a registered user believes there is a problem with
a submission, the user should contact the Track Chair.

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
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.
