Welcome to the GECCO 2010 Graduate Student Workshop web site

This site is dedicated to the 13th ANNUAL GRADUATE STUDENT WORKSHOP to be held as part of the 2010 GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION CONFERENCE (GECCO-2010) on the 7th of July, 2010 (the first day of the conference) in Portland, Oregon, USA. The conference and workshop are sponsored by SIGEVO, the Special Interest Group on Genetic and Evolutionary Computation of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

This full day workshop will involve presentations by approximately 10 selected students pursing research in some aspect of evolutionary computation. Students will make 15-20 minute presentations to an audience that will include a 'mentor' panel of established researchers in evolutionary computation. Presentations will be followed by a 10 minute question and discussion period led by the mentor panel.

Students will also be invited present their work as a poster at the evening Poster Session - an excellent opportunity to network with industry and academic members of the community.

The goal of this workshop is to assist students regarding their research: research methodology, goals, and plans. Students will also receive feedback on their presentation style. Other attendees will benefit by learning about current research, engaging in technical discussions and meeting researchers with related interests. Other students are encouraged to attend as a means of strengthening their own

The group of presenting students will be chosen with the intent of creating a diverse group of students working on a broad range of topic areas.

Awards will be presented for best work and best presentation.

How to Submit


To present, write a paper describing your current research and submit it by email to rpoli@essex.ac.uk using the subject line "GECCO 2010 Graduate Workshop" (since email is sometimes unreliable, please contact rpoli@essex.ac.uk if you don't receive an acknowledgement message within a day or two).

Format your paper following the ACM guidelines (details can be found here) but note that your paper should not be anonymised and that it should not exceed 4 pages in length. Please submit your paper in PDF format.

Notifications of acceptance will be emailed to authors by 1st April 2010 and final camera ready paper versions of accepted papers will be due by 13th April 2010.

Accepted papers will be published in the GECCO 2010 proceedings on a CD, and also in the ACM
Digital Library (this is why contributions must abide ACM formatting rules and failing to comply with such rules may result in exclusion from the proceedings).
