                Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference

              Special Track on Evolutionary Scheduling and Routing

                               CALL FOR PAPERS

        A Recombination of the International Conference on Genetic Algorithms
     (ICGA-2002) and the Seventh Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP-2002)

                    Tuesday 9th July 9- Saturday 13th July, 2002
                            New York City, NY USA


    The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2002) will
    present the latest high-quality results in the growing field of
    genetic and evolutionary computation. GECCO-2002 continues the
    tradition of bringing together researchers from the entire spectrum of
    research in genetic and evolutionary computation, including genetic
    algorithms; classifier systems; genetic programming; evolvable
    hardware; DNA and molecular computing; evolutionary strategies;
    evolutionary programming; evolutionary scheduling and routing; artificial life,
    adaptive behavior, agents, and ant colony optimization; as well as
    real-world applications of all of these areas.

    The "Evolutionary Scheduling and Routing" Special Track welcomes papers
    that include (but are not limited) to the following themes:

            o Scheduling Problems and Applications

            o Meta-heuristic Approaches to Scheduling and Routing Problems

            o Vehicle Routing

            o Travelling Salesman and Related Problems

    Complete submission instructions can be found at:

    Eight(8) paper copies of each submitted paper should ARRIVE
    (at the address below) by WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23,2002.

    The address is GECCO-2002, c/o AAAI, 445
    Burgess Drive, MenloPark, CA 94025, USA. Phone 650-328-3123.
