2019 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2019)
13-17 July, 2019, Prague, Czech Republic http://gecco-2019.sigevo.org/

The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2019) will
present the latest high-quality results in genetic and evolutionary
computation. Topics include genetic algorithms, genetic programming,
evolution strategies, evolutionary programming, memetic algorithms,
hyper-heuristics, real-world applications, evolutionary machine
learning, evolvable hardware, artificial life, adaptive behavior, ant
colony optimization, swarm intelligence, biological applications,
evolutionary robotics, coevolution, search-based software engineering,
digital entertainment technologies and arts, artificial immune systems,
and more. Main tracks and chairs are (see more details at

Call for Papers

The GECCO 2019 Program Committee invites the submission of technical
papers describing your best work in genetic and evolutionary
computation. Full papers of at most 8 pages (excluding references)
should present original work that meets the high-quality standards of
GECCO. Accepted full papers appear in the ACM digital library as part of
the **Main Proceedings** of GECCO. For full papers, a separate abstract
needs to be submitted first by January 30, 2019. Full papers are due by
the non-extensible deadline of February 6, 2019.

Each paper submitted to GECCO will be rigorously evaluated in a
double-blind review process. Evaluation is done on a per-track basis,
ensuring high interest and high expertise of the reviewers. Review
criteria include the significance of the work, technical soundness,
novelty, clarity, writing quality, relevance and, if applicable,
sufficiency of information to permit replication.

Besides full papers, poster-only papers of at most 2 pages may be
submitted. Poster-only papers should present original work that has not
yet reached the maturity and completeness of research results that are
published as full papers at GECCO. The review of poster-only papers
follows the same double-blind process described above. Accepted
poster-only papers will appear in the ACM digital library as part of the
**Companion Proceedings** of GECCO. Poster-only papers are due by the
non-extensible deadline of February 6, 2019, and no abstract needs to be
submitted first.

By submitting a paper, the author(s) agree that, if their paper is
accepted, they will:

  * Submit a final, revised, camera-ready version to the publisher on
    or before the camera-ready deadline
  * Register at least one author to attend the conference (by April 24,
  * Attend the conference (at least one author)
  * Present the accepted paper at the conference

Each paper accepted needs to have at least one author registered. If an
author is presenting more than one paper at the conference, she/he does
not pay any additional registration fees.

More information about paper submission is available at:

Andrew M. Sutton, University of Minnesota Duluth
Nadarajen Veerapen, University of Lille, France
Publicity Chairs

Manuel Lopez-Ibanez, University of Manchester, UK

Anne Auger, INRIA Saclay, France
General Chair

GECCO is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery Special
Interest Group for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation (ACM SIGEVO).
