Call for Papers
Call For Papers: PDF file
2010 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference
Wednesday - Sunday July 7 - 11, 2010 Portland, Oregon, USA
Largest Conference in the Field of Genetic and Evolutionary Computation.
A recombination of the 19th International Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA) and the
15th Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP).
Each paper submitted to GECCO will be rigorously reviewed, in a doubleblind
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 15 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 conferencewide
space limitations and procedures.
Review criteria include significance of the work, technical soundness,
novelty, clarity, writing quality, and sufficiency of information to permit
replication, if applicable.
How to Submit a Paper
Meet the Submission Deadline: Wednesday, January 27, 2010.
Submission site: https://ssl.linklings.net/conferences/gecco
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agree that substantially the same material will not be published by another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.
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 to the publisher by Monday, April 5, 2010
Register at least one author to attend the conference by Monday, April 19, 2010
Attend the conference (at least one author)
Present the accepted paper at the conference
About the Registration Requirement
GECCO requires at least one author of each
accepted paper (the presenting author) to complete a
paid registration by the author registration deadline.
GECCO requires at least one author to register to attend
the conference, so that someone is at the conference
to present the research.
If an accepted paper has more than one
author, and more than one of those authors will attend,
then each author who attends the conference must pay
a registration. Only the presenting author must register
by the deadline; the other authors do not have a deadline
If an author is the presenting author for
more than one accepted paper, the presenting author pays
only one registration.
Your PDF file must meet the following requirements:
1. Use ACM template for
||Description of link
LaTex Option 2
A page on the ACM website with download links
- Word, WordPerfect, WordPerfect 9 template
- Several LaTeX options. Use Option 2
- LaTeX FAQ and ACM help
||The .doc that you will
find at the ACM
page. Placed here for your convenience to download
now with a righ-click and Save Target As....
2. Be no more than 8 template pages
in length, with abstract of less than 200 words
3. Be anonymous: do NOT include author
names and contact information in your PDF.
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  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.
4. Include Track Name on first page.
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 review system, you are ALSO required to enter
the Track name in your PDF file.
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 must appear in 8 pt. Times
New Roman, justified text, with GECCO'08 in
italics. The ACM templates you use to submit your
paper for review contain a sample copyright notice..
The exact text of the copyright statement will be
provided for accepted authors after paper acceptance
decisions are made.
Links to the templates and notices, along
with instructions on how to use them, can be found in
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, for example:
Genetic and Evolutionary
Computation and You
- Authors: Include the following information
for each author: Name, Affiliation, Address, Email
submitted for review
must be anonymous.
Do not include
in your submission
for review. Author
information must be
included in camera
ready files of papers
accepted for publication.
- 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 Aspects,
- 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 Library.
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 sentence to the next
- Section and Sub-section headings should
remain with at least 2 lines of body text when
near the end of a page or column.
