GECCO-99 STUDENT WORKSHOP
(13th July, 1999)
The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-99) in Orlando, Florida, USA was the biggest ever conference on evolutionary computation. It was a joint meeting of the long standing biannual International Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA) which has been running since 1985 and the more recent annual Genetic Programming (GP) conference (which started in 1996). Before the start of each GP conference there has been a workshop for PhD students research in GP. This year Dr. O'Reilly (MIT AI lab) organized a joint graduate student workshop for research students principally concerned with any aspect of evolutionary computation, Evolvable Hardware, DNA computation, Artificial Life or Agents.
