     combines  the  previously  separate  ICGA  and  Genetic   Programming
     conferences.  Covers all aspects of EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION.

     The 2000 conference was held on July 8-12 in Las Vegas, USA.  Details

 3. Pointers to upcoming Conferences:
  The Genetic Algorithm Digest
     Aka "GA-Digest" always starts with a "Calendar of GA-related Events,"
     i.e.   a list of upcoming conferences, covering the complete field of
     EAs (see Q15.1), available from http://www.aic.nrl.navy.mil/galist/

  The Artificial Life Digest
     Aka "Alife digest" always starts with a  "Calendar  of  Alife-related
     Events," that lists conferences, workshops, etc. (cf Q15)

  The Evolutionary Programming Digest
     Aka   "EP-digest"  doesn't  list  conferences  explicitly,  like  the
     previously mentioned ones, but carries most CFP's; that can be looked
     at  in  the backissues folder: amazon.eng.fau.edu/pub/ep-list/digest/
     (cf Q15)
