Our blog friend, Julian Togelius, has written his own account upon the 2007 IEEE Congress On Evolutionary Computation (CEC), see here.
You can also check some pictures of the congress here.
No complaints on the whole event. It's nice, since the attendee must pay a fee for some basic services - such as, I suppose, internet facilities, lunch place, etc -, what means that the fee was worthwhile. There was even somekind of "safari" through the local zoo!
It seems that the event was O.K.!
