BOA paper got ACM SIGEVO GECCO Impact Award

At the SIGEVO Meeting at GECCO-2009, the GECCO-99 paper introducing the Bayesian optimization algorithm (BOA) was one of the two papers that received GECCO Impact Award. This is a new award and it focuses on past GECCO papers that have made most impact and have had most citations. The paper was in fact a project from David Goldberg’s class Genetic Algorithms in Search, Optimization, and Machine Learning (GE-485) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The two awarded papers were:

  • M. Pelikan, D. Goldberg, E. Cantu-Paz (1999). BOA: The
    Bayesian Optimization Algorithm
    . GECCO-99.
  • S. Hofmeyer, S. Forrest (1999). Immunity by Design: An
    Artificial Immune System
    . GECCO-99.
