Workshop on Medical Applications of Genetic and Evolutionary Computation

                             MEDGEC 2005

                      to be held as part of the
                       CONFERENCE (GECCO-2005)
                  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 imaging
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
growing community.


Important dates:

Paper submission deadline: 14 March, 2005
Notification of acceptance: 8 April, 2005
Camera-ready copy deadline: 22 April, 2005
Workshop: 25-26 June, 2005

Papers  should be  submitted in  PDF format,  as an  email attachment,
directly to medgec at by the above deadline.

Accepted papers will  be included on the GECCO  Workshop CD which will
be available to all GECCO attendees.

Papers should be  no longer than 10 pages in  length and formatted for
8-1/2"  x  11"  US  letter  paper.  Authors  should  follow  formating
instructions issued by Springer  for Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS)    Proceedings,    available    by    following    this    link
