for Late Breaking Papers:
Papers describing late-breaking developments
in the field of genetic and
evolutionary computation are being solicited
for presentation at the
2008 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference
(GECCO-2008) to be
held 12-16 July, 2008 (Saturday-Wednesday), in
Atlanta, Georgia, USA,
and inclusion in a CD-ROM to be distributed to
all attendees of the
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 18 April
Note that at least one author of each accepted
Late Breaking Paper must:
-Complete a paid registration for the conference
by 18 April 2008
-Attend the conference and present the paper
at the scheduled time
Accepted Late Breaking Papers
with no authors registered by the deadline will
not appear in the Late-Breaking Papers section
of the CD-ROM.
Submission and Acceptance Procedure
Because the late-breaking papers are published
on a very tight time schedule, please be very
attentive in carrying out the requirements for
submission by Friday 18 April 2008.
Authors agree to:
1. Submit formatted PDF using Submission Site
Your PDF file must use the ACM
with ACM file preparation requirements,
and be no longer than SIX (6) pages in length.
2. If your paper is accepted, fill out and fax
by the 18 April 2008 deadline, the appropriate
ACM permission to publish forms, and add the
correct permission notice to the first page of
your paper. You will receive the detailed instructions
from Sheridan Printing about the permission form
and notice. Authors will individually retain
copyright (and all other rights) to their late-breaking
3. Register at least one author of the Late-Breaking
Paper for the conference by the deadline 21 April
2008. At least one author must register for and
attend the conference, and present the paper
at the scheduled time.
Please be very careful about formatting your
paper because of the very tight time schedule.
No paper-based submissions can be accepted. No
deadline extensions will be granted. Since there
will be no opportunity for revisions, authors
should be especially careful that their original
submission is fully compliant with all requirements.

File Preparation Instructions
The ACM Coypright Notice must appear on
the first page of your paper, on the
bottom, left of the first page. This statement

of this web page.
Page Mandatory Sections
Your submission must include all of
these ACM first page mandatory sections:
Title: Format the title of your
paper so that the first letter of the main
words in your title is an uppercase letter,
Genetic and Evolutionary
Computation and You
Authors: Include the following
information for each author: Name, Affiliation,
Address, Email address
Categories and Subject Descriptors
Select the category and descriptors in
the ACM Computing Classification Scheme
that best describe the content of your
paper. Include the codes and descriptive
words on the first page of your paper.
ACM Computing Classification Scheme: http://www.acm.org/class/1998/
Help on how to classify works using the ACM Computing Classification
General Terms: This section is
limited to the following 16 terms. Select
one of the following general terms that
best describes the content of your submission:
Algorithms, Management, Measurement, Documentation,
Performance, Design, Economics, Reliability,
Experimentation, Security, Human Factors,
Standardization, Languages, Theory, Legal
Keywords: choose the terms by
which would like your to be indexed. Include
your choice of keywords that describe the
content of your submission.
Color Images, Figures, Graphs, Tables, Charts
Your color images will appear in color on
the proceedings CD-ROM and in the ACM Digital
We recommend that:
Images be at least 300 or 600 dpi for
Graph, table, and chart rules
are at least 0.5 pt and black.
Finer lines and point size will not reproduce
well, even if you can see them on your
laser printed hardcopy. Keep in mind
that your laser printers have a far lower
resolution that the imagesetters that
will be used to produce the Proceedings.
All fonts be embedded or included in
figures. If your figure uses custom,
or any non-standard font, the characters
may appear differently when printed in
the proceedings. Be sure to embed or
include fonts correctly.
If you use images or figures assembled
from multiple images, embed the images,
and/or flatten or group layers correctly.
The images must not be lined.
Check the final layout of your paper:
Page and Column Breaks:
check for paragraph "widows"; that
is the last line of a paragraph is
at the top of
a page or column. To correct paragraph
widows, either tighten the previous
column, or force the next-to-the-last
to the next page.
Section and Sub-section headings should
remain with at least 2 lines of body
text when near the end of a page or column.
