Papers describing late-breaking developments in the field of genetic and evolutionary computation are being solicited for inclusion in a special paper-bound book to be distributed to all attendees of the Genetic and Evolutionary Computation  2000 Conference (GECCO-2000) to be held on July 8 - 12 (Saturday - Wednesday), 2000 at the Riviera Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. This special book is distinct from the conference proceedings.

The purpose of late-breaking papers is to provide conference attendees with information about research that was initiated, enhanced, improved, or completed after the original paper submission deadline in January, 2000.
