************************* CALL FOR PAPERS ****************************
Workshop on Medical Applications of Genetic and Evolutionary Computation
to be held as part of the
2005 GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION
June 25-29, 2005 (Saturday-Wednesday)
Loew's L'Enfant Plaza Hotel
Washington, DC, USA
Organized by ACM SIG-EVO
MedGEC is the GECCO Workshop on the application of genetic and
evolutionary computation (GEC) to problems in medicine and healthcare.
Subjects will include (but are not limited to) applications of GEC to:
Medical signal processing
Clinical diagnosis and therapy
Data mining medical data and records
Clinical expert systems
Modelling and simulation of medical processes
A dedicated workshop at GECCO provides a much needed focus for medical
related applications of EC, not only providing a clear definition of
the state of the art, but also support to practitioners for whom GEC
might not be their main area of expertise or experience.
The Workshop has two main aims:
- to provide delegates with examples of the current state of the art
of applications of GEC to medicine.
- to provide a forum in which researchers can discuss and exchange
ideas, support and advise each other in theory and practice.
GECCO is widely regarded to be the most authoritative conference in
GEC and, as such, offers the ideal venue for this important and
