This full day workshop will involve presentations by approximately 12 selected
students pursing research in some aspect of evolutionary computation. Students will
make 15-20 minute presentations to an audience that will include a 'mentor' panel of
established researchers in evolutionary computation. Presentations will be followed
by a 10 minute question and discussion period led by the mentor panel.
To present, submit a 4-page paper to Steven[DOT]Gustafson[AT]research[DOT]ge[DOT]com
describing your current research. Please submit a PDF in the ACM format, details found at

presentation style. Other attendees will benefit by learning about current research,
engaging in technical discussions and meeting researchers with related interests.
Other students are encouraged to attend as a means of strengthening their own
The group of presenting students will be chosen with the intent of creating a
