Best Paper Nominations

  • The following papers have been nominated for a Best Paper Award.
  • For each Best Paper (one per track, or group of small tracks), the final choice will be made by GECCO attendees : all nominees running for the same Best Paper will be presented during the same session, and the session attendees will vote at the end of all presentations.
  • GECCO is over, the list of winners is available here.
