Call for Workshops

The Workshops Chairs of GECCO 2020 invite domain experts to submit proposals for organizing a workshop at GECCO 2020. The deadline for this, which is NON-EXTENSIBLE, is as follows:

  • Proposals for workshops: November 7, 2019

Workshops at GECCO provide the possibility to commonly develop visions and exchange ideas in an informal setting, especially if focused on an emerging research field or interdisciplinary research area. In contrast to regular sessions, workshops can (and should) host interactive sessions (posters, discussions, demonstrations, etc.). Attendance at the workshops will be free to all GECCO attendees.

Workshop organizers are responsible for coordination and publicity. They collect and review papers, and provide a list of accepted papers and their authors, if applicable. Alternatively, a list of (invited) speakers and titles of talks to be given can be provided. If required, the GECCO organizers may provide additional support to the workshop organizers, such as publicity. Note that organizers, participants and presenters must register for the conference.

Accepted workshop papers will be published as part of a companion volume to the conference proceedings in the ACM Digital library.
