We are pleased to announce the official start of the GPU competition of GECCO-2011!
This competition focuses on the applications of genetic and evolutionary computation that can maximally exploit the parallelism provided by low-cost consumer graphical cards. The competition will award the best applications both in terms of degree of parallelism obtained, in terms of overall speed-up, and in terms of programming style.
Rules and Regulations
Entrants must submit (1) the application sources with the instructions to compile it and (2) a two page description of the application. Submissions will be reviewed by a committee of researchers from the evolutionary
computation community and from industry. Each reviewer will score the submission according to 12 criteria concerning the submitted algorithm, the
speed-up it achieves, and its impact on the evolutionary computation community. The total score will be obtained as the weighted sum of the 12 separate scores. The scoring system will be announced shortly!
Submissions should be mailed to gecco2011--at--gpgpgpu.com no later than June 23rd, 2011. The final scores will be announced during GECCO.
