As of January 1, 2005, the International Society for Genetic
(ISGEC) was reorganized to become a Special Interest Group (SIG)
Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The SIG is called
the Special Interest Group for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation.
ACM GECCO Proceedings are sold only through the Association
Computing Machinery store:

ACM GECCO Proceedings may also be accessed at the ACM Digital

ACM membership does not include SIG membership.
1999 - 2004:
In 1999, International Society for Genetic Algorithms (ISGEC)
the preexisting ISGEC and the Genetic Programming conference
organization into one organization. ISGEC combined the world's
largest EC conferences, Genetic Programming (GP) and International
Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA), to create a unique
to bring together the best in research in the growing field
and evolutionary computation (GEC). GECCO Proceedings from
1999 - 2004
may be obtained from www.amazon.com.
Where will the proceedings be indexed?
ACM will submit the conference Proceedings to ISI for indexing.
All other ACM SIGEVO conference proceedings are indexed by
ISI, so it is the expectation that GECCO Proceedings will also
be, as the GECCO Proceedings also meet the criteria for indexing
The printed index product from ISI is called ISTP, and the
on-line version is now called the Proceedings Citation Index
(PCI). The PCI is included in the Web of Science product. ACM
Proceedings are also completely indexed in SCOPUS.
ACM Proceedings are also included in ACM's Guided to Computing
Literature, an on-line bibliographic database that indexes
ACM's own publications and those of other major publishers
in computer science. It is also a citation index with author
profiles showing citation statistics as well as download usage
for all the full text articles in the ACM Digital Library.
Because ACM's conference proceedings are published as volumes,
not journals, they cannot be included in SCI (or SCIE), because
those are JOURNAL indices, so conference proceedings published
as volumes are not eligible for indexing there. That is no
reflection on the quality of the conference proceedings.
