Since Learning Classifier Systems (LCSs) were introduced by John H. 
Holland as a way of applying evolutionary computation to machine 
learning problems, the LCS paradigm has broadened greatly into a 
framework encompassing many representations, rule discovery mechanisms, 
and credit assignment schemes. Current LCS applications range from data 
mining, to automated innovation, and to the on-line control of cognitive 
systems. LCS is a very active area of research that encompasses various 
system approaches. Wilson's accuracy-based XCS system has received the 
highest attention and gained the highest reputation.

LCSs are benefiting from recent advances in machine learning, and 
reinforcement learning in particular, as well asin evolutionary 
computation. Novel insights in these two areas are continuously 
integrated into the LCS framework.We invite submissions which discuss 
recent developments in all areas of research on, and applications of, 
LearningClassifier Systems. IWLCS is the event that brings together most 
of the core researchers in classifier systems. Moreover, a free 
introductory tutorial on LCSs is presented at GECCO 2007. The IWLCS 
workshop gives the opportunity also to researchers interested in LCS to 
get an impression of the current research directions in the field.


There are two ways to submit papers (deadline March 16, 2007): i) short 
papers (up to 4 pages in ACM format) or ii) full papers (up to 20 pages 
in Springer format).

All accepted papers may be presented orally at IWLCS.

Accepted short papers will appear in the GECCO workshop volume. 
Proceedings of the workshop will be published on CD-ROM, and distributed 
at the conference. Authors of short papers will be invited after the 
workshop to submit revised (full) papers for publication in the 
post-workshop proceedings, in Springer LNCS/LNAI book series.

Accepted full papers will be published in the post-workshop proceedings. 
Authors of accepted full papers will be asked to provide a shorter 
4-pages version for publication in the GECCO 2007 workshop proceedings.

The normal route is for authors to submit short papers and produce full 
papers after IWLCS for the post-workshop proceedings, incorporating 
feedback from reviewers and delegates. All submissions will be peer 
reviewed. Reviews of short papers will be mainly to provide feedback to 
enable the production of an improved full paper.

All papers should be submitted in PDF format and e-mailed to: 
esterb from salle.url.edu.
