2nd CFV and VOTE ACK: comp.ai.genetic

2nd CFV and VOTE ACK: comp.ai.genetic

Post by Mike Arr » Sun, 06 Dec 1992 05:44:35



        This is the official call for votes for the creation of an
unmoderated newsgroup called comp.ai.genetic.  This group will be devoted
to the subject of genetic algorithms.

        It should be noted that the presence of "AI" in the group name
does not rule out discussion of aspects of genetic algorithms that are
not directly related to AI, any more than it does in comp.ai.neural-nets.

Topics for discussion in comp.ai.genetic include but are not limited to:

 -- Mathematical theory of genetic algorithms.
 -- Classifier systems, and other uses of GAs in machine learning.
 -- The use of GAs in function-optimization.
 -- Applications of GAs in any domain.
 -- The use of GAs in the modeling of evolution.
 -- Evolutionary aspects of artificial life.
 -- Combinations of genetic algorithms and neural networks.
 -- Other varieties of evolutionary computation
          -- e.g. "evolutionary strategies" and "genetic programming".
 -- Software for genetic algorithms.
 -- Implementational strategies for genetic algorithms.
 -- Conference and journal announcements.

        To vote for or against the creation of the unmoderated newsgroup
comp.ai.genetic, please send an e-mail message to:

        genetic_v...@forwiss.uni-erlangen.de

stating, that you are either for or against the creation of this newsgroup
as proposed.  Your vote must be explicit.  State, "I vote for the group
comp.ai.genetic as proposed" or "I vote against the creation group
comp.ai.genetic."  Votes that are posted will not count.  If you have any
trouble or questions, please mail me or David Chalmers at
d...@cogsci.indiana.edu.  Votes will be processed by me, not some AI shell.
When I get around to reading your vote, I will send an acknowledgement, but
it could be many days before I do.

        The voting period begins now, and will end December 15th, 1992
at 23:59 GMT.

        I have received these votes so far (total 253):
