2nd GECCO Workshop on Open-Source Software for Applied Genetic and Evolutionary Computation (SoftGEC)

My workshop on Open-Source Software for Applied Genetic and Evolutionary Computation (SoftGEC) will be held for a second year in conjunction with the 2008 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO) in Atlanta (July 12-16). The web page for SoftGEC'07 can be found here. I will be posting a SoftGEC'08 web page soon with updated information about invited speakers, etc.

I will be chairing (with Dr. Clare Bates Congdon) the track on Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. We are interested in any papers that use biologically-inspired algorithms or software for biological or biomedical problem-solving. The general GECCO'08 call for papers can be found here. Papers need to submitted by January 16th. I hope to see some papers on the use of genetic and evolutionary computation for genetic analysis.

In addition, I will be giving a two-hour tutorial on Bioinformatics at GECCO'08. More information can be found here.

This is a great conference with a wide diversity of attendees and presenters that are doing creative work in the computational sciences. I highly recommend it! Let me know if you have any questions.
