DETA @ GECCO 2012: Call for Papers

July 07-11, Philadelphia, USA

Sponsored by ACM SIGEVO
Recombination of the 21th International Conference on Genetic Algorithms (ICGA) and the 17th Annual Genetic Programming Conference (GP)

Digital Entertainment Technologies and Arts track

The arts, music and games are key application fields for genetic and evolutionary computation and related techniques. This track explicitly focusses on these areas, thereby strengthening a domain of high scientific, commercial, and cultural relevance. We are especially interested in seeing works that touch on different aspects of this domain.

The track invites submissions that present original work on the use of evolutionary computational techniques and related algorithms in games, music and the creative arts, be they of methodological, experimental or theoretical nature. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Biologically-inspired creativity:

  • Creative virtual ecosystems
  • Evolutionary arts
  • Artificial creative agents
  • Interactive and automated evolutionary algorithms for creative applications

Interactive environments and games:

  • Virtual worlds
  • Automated content generation
  • Game AI
  • Educational game design
  • Intelligent interactive narratives
  • Learning and adaptation in games
  • Player satisfaction


  • Composition and sound synthesis
  • Recognition and classification

Analysis of Computational Intelligence techniques for games, music and the arts

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline EXTENDED!: January 13 January 27, 2012
  • Notification of paper acceptance: March 13, 2012
  • Camera-ready submission: April 09, 2012
  • GECCO-2012 Conference: July 07 - 11, 2012
