gecco ConferenceGECCO The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conferences

Международные мультиконференции по генетическим и эволюционным вычислениям "GECCO" проводятся ежегодно c 1999 года обществом ISGEC (the International Society for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation), ныне SIGEVO (the ACM Special Interest Group on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation) при поддержке Американской ассоциации ИИ (AAAI) и ассоциаций ИИ принимающих стран.

Базовыми спонсорами и организаторами конференций являются:
• the American Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI)
• the International Society for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation (ISGEC) - the ACM Special Interest Group on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation (SIGEVO)
• Other Societies, Universities and Companies.

The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conferences (GECCO) present the latest high-quality results in the growing field of genetic and evolutionary computation.

Topics
The conferences are organized around the following independently operating program committees:
• Genetic Algorithms (GA)
• Genetic Programming (GP)
• Evolution Strategies/Evolutionary Programming (ESP)
• Classifiers (Learning classifier systems) (CS)
• Evolvable Hardware (EH)
• Real-World Applications (RWA)
• Artificial Life, Adapative Behavior, Agents, and Immune Systems (AL)
• Genetic Scheduling and TSP (GS)
• Mathematical Foundations of Evolutionary Algorithms (MF)
• Neural Networks and Data Mining (NNDM)
• DNA and Molecular Computing (DNA)
• Ant Colony Optimization (AC)
• Evolutionary Robotics (ER)

GECCO - крупнейшая ежегодная мультиконференция в области генетических и эволюционных вычислений, которая объединяет ряд других конференций.
