===== OVERVIEW =====

Call For Papers

We invite submissions that discuss recent developments in all areas of
research on, and applications of, Genetic Improvement. This workshop
one of two key workshops in the field and provides an opportunity for
researchers interested in automated program repair and software
optimisation to disseminate their work, exchange ideas and discover
new research directions.

Topics of interest include both the theory and practice of Genetic
Improvement. Applications include, but are not limited to, using GI

repair bugs
improve code efficiency
decrease memory consumption
decrease energy consumption
explore trade-offs between non-functional properties
transplant new functionality
optimise software parameters
improve practice (e.g., deployments, case studies, etc.)
inform language or tool design

...and also any works in the greater field of search-based software
engineering in general.

Research, Tool & Position Papers

We invite submissions of three types of paper:

Research papers: up to 8 pages long

Tool demo papers: up to 4 pages long

Position papers: up to 2 pages long

We encourage authors to submit early and in-progress work. The
workshop emphasises interaction and discussion.

Papers should be in ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) format.
Papers must be anonymised. See submissions for more details.

All accepted papers will be presented at GI at GECCO-2020 and will be
published by the ACM. At least one author of each accepted paper must
register for the workshop (authors of multiple GI at GECCO-2020 papers
need only register once).

The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date
the proceedings are made available in the ACM Library. Based on our
experience, this is close to the first day of GECCO itself. The
official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings
related to published work.

These dates are strict, no extensions will be granted

Submission opening: February 27, 2020
