Early this Spring, the organizers of ICGA solicited proposals for workshops.
Proposals for six workshops have been received and accepted thus far.
These workshops are listed below.
ICGA attendees are encouraged to contact the organizers of workshops in
which they would like to participate. Email addresses for workshop
organizers are included below.

The organizers would also like to encourage proposals for additional
workshops. If you would like to organize and chair a workshop, please 
submit a one-paragraph proposal, including a description of the workshop's
topic, and some idea of how the workshop will be organized. 

Workshop proposals will be accepted by email only at
icga93 at pele.cs.unm.edu 

At the ICGA91 (in San Diego), the workshops served an important role,
providing smaller, less formal meetings for the discussion of specific topics
related to genetic algorithms research. The organizers hope that this
tradition will continue at ICGA93.
