Click here for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2001) in San Francisco - Silicon Valley on July 7 - 11, 2001 (Combination of annual Genetic Programming Conference and ISGA conference).
GECCO-99 in Orlando drew 610 attendees, making it the largest conference ever in the field of evolutionary computation. The program committee (including the executive committee) of the GP-98 Conference has voted in favor of holding a joint conference in 2000 combining the Fifth Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP-2000) and the International Conference on Genetic Algorithms Conference (ICGA-2000). The combined conference will be called the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation 2000 Conference (GECCO-2000) and will be held on July 8 - 12 (Saturday - Wednesday), 2000 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The general chair of GECCO-2000 is Darrell Whitley. The GECCO-2000 conference will have several separate and independent program committees. In particular, the program chair for genetic programming and evolvable hardware is Lee Spector. The business committee of the GECCO conference consists of David E. Goldberg and John R. Koza. The deadline for arrival of submitted papers for the GECCO conference is Wednesday, January 26, 2000. The combined conference will be held in cooperation with the American Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI).

In March 1998, the program committee of the GP-98 Conference voted 61-3, the GP-98 executive committee voted 3-0, and the board of the International Society for Genetic Algorithms Inc. voted 8-1 in favor of holding a joint conference in l999 combining the Eighth International Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA-99) and the Fourth Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP-99). The combined conference is called the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO). The combined GECCO conference will be held on July 14 - 17 (Wednesday - Saturday), 1999 at the Omni-Rosen Hotel in Orlando, Florida. This combined GECCO Conference is being held in lieu of the GP-99 and ICGA-99 conferences. The general chair of GECCO is David E. Goldberg of the University of Illinois. The GECCO conference will have several separate and independent program committees. The program chair for genetic programming and evolvable hardware is Wolfgang Banzhaf, who will be editor-in-chief of the proceedings of the combined conference. In addition, Robert E. Smith is the program chair for genetic algorithms and classifier systems and Agoston E. Eiben is the program chair for evolution strategies and evolutionary programming). The authors of all of the approximately three dozen full-length books on evolutionary computation have been invited to be members of three program policy committees for the GECCO conference. Additional members of each of these three program committees have been impaneled to serve as peer reviewers for submitted papers if they have published at least one peer-reviewed paper in their field. In addition, Max Garzon has been appointed special program chair for DNA computing for the GECCO conference; Mark Jakiela has been appointed special program chair for real-world applications of genetic and evolutionary computation; and Vasant Honavar has been appointed special program chair for artificial life, adaptive behavior, and agents. The GECCO conference will be operated by International Society for Genetic Algorithms Inc., a Massachusetts not-for-profit corporation, and Genetic Programming Conferences Inc., a California not-for-profit corporation. The business committee of the GECCO conference consists of David E. Goldberg and John R. Koza. There will also be a pre-conference Graduate Student Workshop at the GECCO conference in l999 chaired by Una-May O'Reilly. The deadline for arrival of submitted papers for the GECCO conference is Wednesday, January 27, 1999. The combined conference will be held in cooperation with the Parallel Problem Solving from Nature (PPSN) Steering Committee, the International Conference on Evolvable Systems (ICES), and the American Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). The AAAI-99 conference starts on Sunday July 18, 1999 in Orlando. Additional information concerning paper submission, travel, hotels, housing, student travel grants, workshops, tutorials, and other matters will be posted on the GECCO home page on the WWW at http://www-illigal.ge.uiuc.edu/gecco/.
