Workshop Website: http://www.gustafsonresearch.com/gecco2009_graduate_workshop/

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
http://www.sigevo.org/gecco-2009/papers.html, using a subject line of "GECCO 2009
Graduate Workshop". Accepted papers will be published in the GECCO Workshop Proceedings.

Students will also be invited present their work as a poster at the evening
Poster Session - an excellent opportunity to network with industry and academic
members of the community.

The goal of this workshop is to assist students regarding their research: research
methodology, goals, and plans. Students will also receive feedback on their
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
research.

The group of presenting students will be chosen with the intent of creating a
diverse group of students working on a broad range of topic areas.

Awards will be presented for best work and best presentation.
