              PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR WORKSHOP: 25 March 2009


We are pleased to invite you to submit a paper to MedGEC 2009 the GECCO
Workshop on Medical Applications of Genetic and Evolutionary Computation.

Full details can be found at the MedGEC Web site:
http://www.elec.york.ac.uk/events/MedGEC2009/

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
Modeling 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:

(i) to provide delegates with examples of the current state of the art
of applications of GEC to medicine.

(ii) 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: 25 March 2009
Notification of acceptance: 3 April, 2009
Camera-ready copy deadline: 16 April, 2009
Workshop: 8 July, 2009
