Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2000)

July  8 - 12, 2000

The Riviera Hotel and Casino
Las Vegas, Nevada,  USA

A recombination of the Fifth Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP-2000) and the International Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA-2000)

General Chair: Darrell Whitley,  Colorado State University,


The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2000) will present the latest high-quality research results in the growing field of genetic and evolutionary computation. The conference is organized around the following independently operating program committees:

  • Genetic Algorithms (GA)
  • Genetic Programming (GP)
  • Evolution Strategies/Evolutionary Programming (ESP)
  • Classifiers (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)
Each program committee will establish their own procedures for peer reviewing and will make the final decisions on submitted papers for their areas (subject only to conference-wide space limitations and procedures).

Additional information will be periodically posted on the Web at either or

The conference brochure is available in PDF and Postscript formats
