** Final Call for Papers **

2018 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2018)
July 15th-19th, 2018, Kyoto, Japan

*** NOTE ***
We kindly suggest booking your accommodations as soon as possible. The
Gion festival, which occurs simultaneously with GECCO, may impact the
availability of hotels during the month of July.

*NON-EXTENSIBLE* Abstract Deadline: January 30, 2018.

Submission site for abstracts and papers:

The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2018) 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, artificial immune systems, and

The GECCO 2018 Program Committee invites the submission of technical
papers describing your best work in genetic and evolutionary
computation.  Full papers of at most 8 pages are aimed to present
original new 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, 2018. Full papers
are due by the non-extensible deadline of February 6, 2018.

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 sufficiency of
information to permit replication, if applicable.

Besides the traditional GECCO full papers, poster-only papers of at
most 2 pages can be submitted. These are aimed to present original and
new work that has not yet reached the stage of the more mature,
complete research results that are typically published in full papers
at GECCO. The review of poster-only papers follows the same
double-blind process described above. However, accepted poster-only
papers 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, 2018, and no abstract needs to be submitted

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 on or before
     the advance registration deadline
   - Attend the conference (at least one author)
   - Present the accepted paper at the conference

If an author has more than one paper to present at the conference,
there are NO additional registration fees. The author registers one
time (pays for 1 registration) and presents as many papers as have
been accepted. If a paper has more than one author, and more than one
author will attend the conference, then each author in attendance must
pay for a separate registration.
