Papers describing late-breaking developments in the field of genetic programming are being solicited for inclusion in a special paper-bound book to be distributed to all attendees of the Genetic Programming 1997 Conference (GP-97) to be held on July 13 - 16 (Sunday - Wednesday), 1997 at Stanford University. This special book is distinct from the conference proceedings.
The purpose of late-breaking papers is to provide conference attendees with information about research that was initiated, enhanced, improved, or completed after the original paper submission deadline in January, 1997.
