 1st Call for participation



 Bird-of-a-feather Workshop
 at the 
 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference 2001
 ( GECCO-2001 )

 San Francisco, California, July 7 - 11, 2001 (Saturday - Wednesday) 

 A recombination of 
 the Sixth Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP-2001) and 
 the International Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA-2001) 

 organized by

 Martin Pelikan and Kumara Sastry

 to be held on Saturday, July 7, 2001


Algorithms that replace two-parent recombination of genetic 
algorithms by building and simulating a probabilistic model 
of promising solutions have received much attention over 
the past years. The proposed methods resolve many problems 
of other evolutionary algorithms and are increasingly used 
to solve various problem of practical and theoretical importance. 
Theory was designed to understand the dynamics of the algorithms 
as well as their limits.

The purpose of this workshop is to 
- review and describe the basic principles of discussed methods, 
- present recent developments in the covered area of research, 
- discuss current problems and future directions of research 
 in this area, and 
- encourage communication among active researchers in the area 
 and other participants. 

The length of the workshop is 4 hours. The workshop will start
by an introduction to the field by Martin Pelikan. This will be
followed by about 5-7 presentations. The workshop will finish
with a panel discussion.


Presentations will be selected according to the submitted 10-page 
papers which will be reviewed by at least two members of the 
international program committee. Accepted papers will be available 
in electronic form before the workshop. Abbreviated versions of 
the papers will be later published in the workshop proceedings. 
The 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

Subject: EST Congress - Translation Studies, Copenhagen, 2001





 Claims, Changes and Challenges

 in Translation Studies


Papers are invited for the Third International Congress of the European
Society for Translation Studies, to be held at the Copenhagen Business
School, Denmark.

The Congress aims at providing an international forum for scholars,
teachers, and practitioners involved in Translation Studies, and papers
are invited from EST members and non-members alike on topics concerning
new claims and challenges in the discipline.

The Congress programme will be organised with plenaries, panels, papers,
posters and polemics. A selection of contributions will be published
in the Proceedings. There will be a book exhibition and an opportunity
to set up information stands for research projects. In addition, there
will be pre-congress seminars in the afternoon of 29 August on specific
topics related to research training: localisation, community
interpreting, and corpora and Translation Studies. Each seminar will run
if at least 20 participants sign up for it.

The Congress languages will be English, French, German and Spanish.
Contributions may be given, and abstracts submitted, in any of these

Pre-registration form and abstract should be submitted by 30 November
2000 to:

EST Congress 2001 Phone: +45 38 15 32 50

DK-2000 Frederiksberg, Denmark

Abstracts (max. 300 words) should be sent electronically (preferably as
Word 7.0 attachment) and on paper.

A second circular with a list of all contributions accepted by the
Scientific Committee as well as further information will be issued in
