Our old blog friend, Julian Togelius, has written a personal summary upon the GECCO 2007 event, see here
. The same was done by Juan Julián Merelo Guervós, who also attended the event, see here
. There is also the nice report by David, see here
Togelius emphasizes the lack of suitable room and the relative "long distance" among the places where presentations were being held. Let alone the comparison he does between the previous IEEE evolutionary computation/A.I. events and GECCO 2007. By the way, he says that he does not want to lose contact with both sides of conferences.
Merelo Guervós points to some drawbacks he had while in London to attend the event and the lack of organization on basic issues, such as lunch place, small space to put posters, and unsuitable computer facilities. He does a bitter conclusion upon the subject.
David report is a mix of, let's say, tour, gastronomic gathering and... scientific expedition! His summary is a tour around so many subjects on GECCO 2007, from evolutionary art to naval evolutionary optimization - which is his own research issue. He accomplishes his posting comparing his high schoool days and the nowadays conference in which he is involved. It's a nice summary!
By the way, as I do not appreciate bairrismos
is a kind of a tacky insider atitude), and as those two summaries are not the only ones, I would suggest the reader to see the previous posting upon the same subject, please, follow the link below:GECCO 2007 Blogging
