                 8th Annual Genetic and Evolutionary Computation
                 COnference (GECCO-2006), held in Seattle, Washington,
                 USA., July 8-12, 2006.

                 In our second year sponsored by the ACM Special
                 Interest Group on Evolutionary Computation (SIGEVO),
                 we've seen a further evolution of the field toward
                 practical importance. Although the main genetic
                 algorithm track remains the largest in the number of
                 submitted papers, the real world applications track is
                 starting to close the gap rapidly. As an ACM
                 publication, the GECCO-2006 proceedings are available
                 online in the ACM Digital Library. This guarantees a
                 broader dissemination of Darwinian and other
                 nature-inspired computation methods, and will likely
                 increase the relevance of the field even further.

                 A total of 446 papers were submitted to 15 separate
                 tracks, with 205 (46percent) accepted as full,
                 eight-page papers for publication and oral
                 presentation. Double-blind reviews were conducted by
                 over 400 reviewers. On average, each paper was
                 evaluated by four reviewers. In addition, 143 papers
                 were accepted as posters with two-page abstracts
                 included in the proceedings.

                 With 10 workshops, 32 tutorials, sessions in
                 Evolutionary Computation in Practice, late-breaking
                 papers, awards in human-competitive results, GECCO-2006
                 has lived up to its motto of one conference, many
                 miniconferences. Also this year's GECCO thrives on
