This full day workshop will involve presentations by approximately 12
selected 
students pursing research in some aspect of evolutionary computation.
Students will 
make 15-20 minute presentations to an audience that will include a
'mentor' panel of 
established researchers in evolutionary computation. Presentations will
be followed 
by a 10 minute question and discussion period led by the mentor panel.
Submit 
a 4-page paper describing your current research.

Students will also be invited present their work as a poster at the
Tuesday evening 
Poster Session - an excellent opportunity to network with industry and
academic 
members of the community.  

The goal of this workshop is to assist students regarding their
research: research 
methodology, goals, and plans. Students will also receive feedback on
their 
presentation style. Other attendees will benefit by learning about
current research, 
engaging in technical discussions and meeting researchers with related
interests. 
Other students are encouraged to attend as a means of strengthening
their own 
research.

The group of presenting students will be chosen with the intent of
creating a 
diverse group of students working on a broad range of topic areas. 

Awards will be presented for best work and best presentation.
