to MedGEC 2011
MedGEC is the GECCO
Workshop on the application of genetic and evolutionary computation (GEC) to
problems in medicine and healthcare.
Subjects will include (but are not limited to) applications of
Medical signal processing
Medical text analysis
Clinical diagnosis and therapy
Data mining medical data and records
Clinical expert systems
Modelling and simulation of medical processes
Drug description analysis
Genomic-based clinical studies
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
(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.
papers will be published in the GECCO 2011 Companion Material, included with
the proceedings on a CD, and also in the ACM Digital Library.
GECCO MedGEC 2011
A session of the workshop will be dedicated to the presentation of
large transnational projects in which GEC plays a significant role and of
other opportunities for young scientists to be involved in this field.
In particular, a short presentation of the EU-funded project
MIBISOC ("Medical Imaging using Bio-Inspired and Soft Computing",
funded within the Marie-Curie Initial Training Network Action FP7
PEOPLE-ITN-2008), which funds 16 PhDs in laboratories form 5 European
countries will be given, while similar contributions will be solicited in the
