CFP: CEC2007 Congress on Evolutionary Computation

Dear researcher,
The 15 March 2007 deadline is fast approaching for paper submissions to the 2007 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation ( Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, and co-sponsored by the Evolutionary Programming Society and the IET, the IEEE CEC 2007 will be held in Singapore, September 25-28, 2007.
The 2007 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC) will feature a world-class conference that aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of evolutionary computation from all around the globe. Technical exchanges within the research community will encompass keynote speeches, over 35 special sessions, over 10 tutorials and workshops, panel discussions as well as poster presentations. On top of these, participants will be treated to a series of social functions, receptions and networking sessions, which will serve as a vital channel to establish new connections and foster everlasting friendship among fellow counterparts.
