Dear Colleague,

WORKSHOP ON MEDICAL APPLICATIONS OF GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION
                                (MEDGEC)

                        to be held as part of the

    2006 GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION CONFERENCE (GECCO-2006)

                   July 8-12, 2006 (Saturday-Wednesday)
                        Renaissance Seattle Hotel

            PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR WORKSHOP: 1 March, 2006


I am pleased to invite you to submit a paper to MedGEC 2006, 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/intsys/events/MedGEC2006/home.htm

**************************************************************************
Accepted papers will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of
the journal "Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines" (www.springer.com)
**************************************************************************

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: 1 March, 2006
Notification of acceptance: 29 March, 2006
Camera-ready copy deadline: 12 April, 2006
Workshop: 8 July, 2006 (provisional date)
