GECCO-2009 Car Racing Competition

The second contest of the GECCO-2009 Car Racing competition officially started on March 25. The competition is a software-simulated race between virtual cars. The second contest is designed to simulate the time before a race when mechanics and drivers optimize the car for performance. The goal of the contest is to build an evolutionary algorithm that can replace the team of humans and find the best car setup (e.g., gear ratio, wing area and angle, spring setup) on a given track.

The submission deadline for the contest is July 1, 2009. Results of the contest will be announced at the Genetic and Engineering Computation Conference (GECCO-2009) held July 8-12 in Montreal, Canada. This is the largest conference in the field of genetic and evolutionary computation.
