 Workshop on ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF REPRESENTATIONS AND OPERATORS

              Bird-of-a-feather Workshop
                       at the
  Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference 2003
                     (GECCO-2003)


      July 12-16, 2003 (Saturday - Wednesday)

                Chicago, Illinois, USA

         to be held on Saturday, July 12, 2003


WORKSHOP SUMMARY

Successful and efficient use of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) depends on the
choice of the genotype representation and the genetic operators. These
choices cannot been made independently of each other. The question whether a
certain representation leads to better performing EAs than an alternative
representation, can only be answered when the operators applied are taken
into consideration. The reverse is also true: deciding between alternative
operators is only meaningful for a given representation. The application of
different types of evolutionary search operators like, for example, mutation
or crossover, should result in offspring that inherit some useful
information from their parents. If a specific operator- representation
combination does not guarantee this, EAs turn into random search and guided
search becomes impossible. Despite the importance of choosing proper
representation-operator combinations on the performance of EAs, little
general applicable theory and knowledge is available to help understanding
and guiding the construction of successful and efficient EAs.

The purpose of the workshop is to provide a platform where these issues can
be discussed. Relevant topics are (but not limited to):

   - Theoretical and empirical properties of representations and/or
operators
   - Predictive performance measures for evaluating representation and
operator choices
   - Practical guidelines to help EA-users to design superior
operator/representation pairs
   - Redundant versus non-redundant genotype coding
   - High-locality versus low-locality representations
   - Search space bias of representations and operators
   - Promising directions of future research

The workshop continues the tradition of the
   - Workshop on Representations and Operators for network problems (ROPNET
2001) at GECCO2001 and the
   - Workshop on Representations for Genetic and Evolutionary Algorithms at
last years GECCO2002.


PARTICIPATION

     We invite you to submit a 6-page paper which will be reviewed by
     members of the international program committee. Accepted papers
     will be available in electronic form before the workshop.
     Abbreviated versions of the papers will be published later in
     the workshop proceedings. The final length of each paper will
     be determined by the number of accepted papers.

     For more detailed submission guidelines and recent updates,
     see the workshop pages at http://www.bwl.uni-mannheim.de/Adoro


IMPORTANT DATES (subject to change)

     Paper submission deadline:             February 28, 2003
     Decisions will be mailed by:           March 24, 2003
     Submissions of camera-ready papers:    April 7, 2003
     Workshop in New York:                  July 12, 2003
