Conference Location
Call For Papers

Each paper submitted to GECCO 2021 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 authors 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 participate in the conference on or before the advance registration deadline.
    Participate in the conference (at least one author).
    Present the accepted paper at the conference. 

Researchers who have recently published their work in top-tier conferences and journals are invited to submit abstracts to the Hot Off the Press track. Contributions will be selected based on quality and interest to the GECCO community.


The GECCO 2021 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials. They will be reviewed by the GECCO 2021 Organizing Committee based on their significance to the conference, the breadth and depth of the topics, and the expertise and credentials of the presenters. Tutorials will be open to all attendees of the conference. Slide sets of accepted tutorials will be published in the ACM Digital Library as part of a companion volume to the conference proceedings. Please visit the GECCO 2021 website to check for deadlines.

The GECCO 2021 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops. GECCO workshops provide the possibility to jointly develop visions and exchange ideas in an informal setting, especially if focused on an emerging research field or interdisciplinary research area. Please visit the GECCO 2021 website for deadlines. Workshop organizers are responsible for coordination, publicity, and the reviewing of submitted papers. Accepted workshop papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library in a companion volume to the conference proceedings.


Three days of presentations of the latest high-quality results in 13 separate and independent program tracks specializing in various aspects of genetic and evolutionary computation.

    ACO-SI - Ant Colony Optimization and Swarm Intelligence
    CS - Complex Systems (Artificial Life, Artificial Immune Systems, Generative and Developmental Systems, Evolutionary Robotics, Evolvable Hardware)
    ECOM - Evolutionary Combinatorial Optimization and Metaheuristics
    EML - Evolutionary Machine Learning
    EMO - Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization
    ENUM - Evolutionary Numerical Optimization
    GA - Genetic Algorithms
    GECH - General Evolutionary Computation and Hybrids
    GP - Genetic Programming
    NE - Neuroevolution (NEW)
    RWA - Real World Applications
    SBSE - Search-Based Software Engineering
    THEORY - Theory 


Two days of free tutorials and workshops (included with conference registration) presented by some of the world's foremost experts in topics of interest to genetic and evolutionary computation researchers and practitioners.


The SIGEVO Summer School starts before the conference and welcomes students willing to participate in lectures, discussions, presentations, joint works, and interact with world-class researchers.


To address the growing interest in remote participation, selected events of GECCO 2021 will be made available online. Details will be provided later on the conference website.
