Call for Papers

The GECCO 2016 Program Committee invites the submission of technical papers describing your best work in genetic and evolutionary computation. Abstracts need to be submitted by January 27, 2016. Full papers are due by the non-extensible deadline of February 3, 2016. Note that only full papers can be
reviewed and accepted. The abstracts allow us to prepare better for the reviewing process.

Detailed submission instructions can be found here.

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

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), and
  • present the accepted paper at the conference.

Researchers are also invited to submit abstracts of their work recently published in top-tier conferences and journals to the Hot Off the Press (HOP) track. Contributions will be selected based on quality and interest to the GECCO community. Submission instructions for the HOP track will be provided on the HOP page. The submission deadline for the HOP track will be in April.
