                   CALL FOR PAPERS 

                        FOGA X
           Foundations of Genetic Algorithms

  Orlando, Florida USA, 9-11 January 2009 (Friday-Sunday) 


       Extended Deadline (2nd):  September 10, 2008 

We invite submissions of extended abstracts for the tenth 
Foundations of Genetic Algorithms, sponsored by ACM SIGEVO. 
FOGA focuses on theoretical foundations of evolutionary 
computation. It will be held from Friday, January 9 until 
Sunday January 11, 2009 in Orlando, Florida in the USA. 
Attendance will be limited to individuals who have submitted 
papers, or those requesting attendance in advance. Students 
are particularly encouraged to participate. 
Submissions should address theoretical issues in evolutionary 
computation. Papers that consider foundational issues, 
place analysis in the context of the wider community of 
theoretical computer science, or focus on bridging the gap 
between theory and practice are particularly encouraged. 
These topics do not preclude the acceptance of papers that 
use an experimental approach, but such work should be 
directed toward validation of suitable hypotheses concerning 
foundational matters. 
Extended abstracts should be between 10-12 pages long. 
To submit, please email a compressed postscript or a PDF file 
to foga09 from ist.ucf.edu no later than Wednesday, September 10, 2008. 
In their submission message, authors should provide the 
title of the paper, as well as the name, address and 
affiliation of the author(s). Submitted papers should use 
standard spacing and margins, with 11pt or 12pt font for 
the main text. Authors using LATEX should either use the 
standard article style file or the FOGA style file which can 
be found at the conference web-site. A double-blind 
reviewing process will be employed, so authors are asked 
to remove references to themselves from their paper. 
Notification will be in early November, and drafts of the 
full paper will be due one month after notification. These 
drafts will be distributed as part of a preprint to 
participants at FOGA. Authors of papers presented at the 
FOGA workshop will be asked to contribute final versions 
of their papers (based on discussion/feedback at the meeting) 
as part of the final volume.
