GECCO 2016 Call for Papers

2016 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2016)
July 20-24, 2016, Denver, Colorado, USA
http://gecco-2016.sigevo.org/

The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2016) will present
the latest high-quality results in genetic and evolutionary computation.
Topics include: genetic algorithms, genetic programming, evolution strategies,
evolutionary programming, memetic algorithms, hyper heuristics, real-world
applications, evolutionary machine learning, evolvable hardware, artificial
life, adaptive behavior, ant colony optimization, swarm intelligence,
biological applications, evolutionary robotics, coevolution, artificial immune
systems, and more.

The GECCO 2016 Program Committee invites the submission of technical papers
describing your best work in genetic and evolutionary computation. Abstracts
need to be submitted by January 27, 2016. Full papers are due by the
non-extensible deadline of February 3, 2016.

Each paper submitted to GECCO will be rigorously evaluated in a double-blind
review process. The evaluation is on a per-track basis, ensuring high interest
and expertise of the reviewers. Review criteria include significance of the
work, technical soundness, novelty, clarity, writing quality, and sufficiency
of information to permit replication, if applicable. All accepted papers will
be published in the ACM Digital Library.  Researchers are invited to submit
abstracts of their work recently published in top-tier conferences and
journals to the Hot Off the Press track. Contributions will be selected based
on quality and interest to the GECCO community.

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 on or
before the camera ready deadline
– Register at least one author to attend the conference on or before
the advance registration deadline
– Attend the conference (at least one author)
– Present the accepted paper at the conference

Important Dates:

Abstract Deadline:               January 27, 2016
Submission of Full Papers:       February 3, 2016
Conference:                      20-24 July, 2016
