Call for Papers

Genetic Programming (GP) is a new branch of Evolutionary Computation in which the structures in the population being evolved are computer programs. GP has been applied successfully to a large number of difficult problems like automatic design, pattern recognition, robotic control, synthesis of neural networks, symbolic regression, music and picture generation, etc.

EuroGP'99 is the biggest event entirely devoted to Genetic Programming to be held in Europe, the second of its kind after EuroGP'98 which took place this year in Paris. The aims are to give European and non-European researchers in the area of genetic programming as well as people from industry an opportunity to present their latest research and discuss current developments and applications. The event will be held at Chalmers University of Technology in Goteborg, Sweden.

The workshop is sponsored by EvoNet, the Network of Excellence in Evolutionary Computing, and is one of the activities of EvoGP, the EvoNet working group on Genetic Programming. It will be held in conjunction with three other major European events:

Topics of Interest: Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: The workshop will consist of: Fees: Registration fees are still being finalised and will be publicised shortly. Registration to EuroGP'99 will include free non-transferable registration to EvoRobot'99, EvoIASP'99 and EuroECTel'99 (and vice versa). A reduced registration rate will be available for students.

Submissions: To submit, send your manuscript (max length: 10 A4 pages) to one of the co-chairs, Riccardo Poli and Peter Nordin, in PostScript (preferably compressed and uuencoded) BY EMAIL (see addresses below) not later than December 15, 1998. The papers will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the program committee. Authors will be notified via email on the results of the review by January 15, 1999.

The authors of accepted papers will have four weeks to improve their paper on the basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts in LNCS format (12 pages recommended, 15 pages max) by February 15th, 1999. The papers accepted will appear in the workshop proceedings, published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, which will be available at the workshop.
