Summer School

SIGEVO SUMMER SCHOOL (S3)

Held in conjunction with ACM GECCO 2021 Conference


The SIGEVO Summer School (S3) goes into round 4 with a renewed format. We will be targeting the following areas of knowledge:

  • General skills needed by GECCO researchers, e.g. reviewing, paper writing and presenting, as well as best practices for the empirical evaluation of evolutionary algorithms. Taught through lectures and small workshops led by summer school mentors.
  • In-depth knowledge about specific topics within GECCO, mostly through attending tutorials and workshops associated with GECCO (included in price), see list of tutorials. Some mentor sessions will also be tailored towards specific research topics to allow for more in-depth discussions with an expert in the field.


The summer school is open to current students and recent graduates. There will also be ample chances to meet and work with other participants as well as senior researchers (our mentors) in a relaxed and smaller setting than during the main conference. Interested? See Call for Summer School for how to participate!
