Tutorial Proposals

General Information

The Tutorials Chair of GECCO 2021 invites domain experts to submit proposals for presenting a tutorial at GECCO 2021. The NON-EXTENSIBLE deadline is:

  • Proposals for tutorials: November 5, 2020
  • Acceptance Decision: December 3, 2020

If you submitted a proposal you can view it via the My Info page.

Tutorials at GECCO will be presented by domain experts to cover current topics relevant to evolutionary computation researchers and practitioners. Each tutorial will be 110 minutes long. We encourage the inclusion of interactive activities and demos.

Tutorials will be free to all GECCO attendees. It is expected that all the instructors involved in a tutorial will attend the conference. One instructor/presenter of each accepted tutorial will get a discounted registration. (The discount can be divided among tutorial instructors if there are more than one. Each presenter is eligible for only a single tutorial discount, i.e., it is not possible to aggregate discounts from multiple tutorials).

Accepted tutorials' slide sets will be published as part of a Companion volume to the conference proceedings in the ACM Digital library.
