There are less than 2 weeks remaining (deadline, JUNE 10, 1999)
to submit a late-breaking paper to GECCO-99, the
1999 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference,
to be held 13-17 July 1999 at the Omni Rosen Hotel
in Orlando, Florida USA. See the details in the call for
late-breaking papers below.

Also, there are only a few weeks left to get reduced-price registration

free one-year subscription to a new journal, and much more.

On behalf of the organizers of GECCO-99, I hope to see you
in Orlando for what promises to be a special event in the field
of genetic and evolutionary computation (GEC).

for the

1999 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference

July 13 - 17 (Tuesday - Saturday), 1999
Omni Rosen Hotel, Orlando, Florida USA

Deadline: Thursday, June 10, 1999


The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-99) is
seeking papers describing late-breaking developments in the field of
genetic and evolutionary computation for inclusion in a special
paperbound book to be distributed to all attendees of the GECCO-99
conference to be held on July 13 - 17 (Tuesday - Saturday), 1999 at
the Omni Rosen Hotel, Orlando, Florida. This special book is distinct
from the conference proceedings. The purpose of late-breaking papers
is to provide conference attendees with information about research
that was initiated, enhanced, improved, or completed after the
original paper submission deadline in January 1999.

Late-breaking papers will be presented during a poster session held
during the GECCO-99 conference. The poster session is tentatively
scheduled for Thursday evening, July 15, 199.

Late-breaking papers will be briefly examined for relevance and
minimum standards of acceptability, but will not be peer reviewed in
detail. Authors will individually retain copyright (and all other
rights) to their late-breaking papers and should feel free to submit
them (either before or after the above deadline) for publication by
other conferences or journals.

Late-breaking papers must be submitted in camera-ready form in
accordance with the final camera-ready GECCO-99 format specifications
that can be found at the GECCO-99 WWW site at

Late-breaking papers should be no more than 9 pages in length. Please
send TWO camera-ready copies (printed with very high quality by laser
printer) and the SIGNED "permission to publish" form (below) to
