I will be chairing (with Clare Congdon) the Biological Applications track of the 2007 Genetic and Evolutionary Computing Conference (GECCO) in London. Papers for the conference are due on January 17th. I will post a more formal call for papers later. I look forward to this particular conference every year. It is a nice blend of machine learning, data mining and artificial life with a growing focus on real-world problems such as those in genetics and bioinformatics. I will also be giving a tutorial on bioinformatics at the conference.
Note that there will be a public debate on Complexity and Evolution for one of the keynote events at GECCO. Click here for more information.
