Student Workshop

The student workshop at GECCO (Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference) 2018 aims to provide a platform for graduate and undergraduate students to present their research on the topic at GECCO in Kyoto, Japan. This multi-session workshop supports students with their scientific work and facilitates their inclusion in the research community. Our call for papers can be found on the Call for Student Workshop page.

At the workshop, students receive valuable feedback on the quality of their work and their presentation style. This is assured by constructive discussions after each talk led by a mentor panel of established researchers. Students are encouraged to use this opportunity for guidance on future research directions.

General information on GECCO workshops can be found here. For some impressions of last year's workshop, check the corresponding website or our Twitter.

Mentor Panel

We are excited to announce that Anne Auger (INRIA, France), Boris Naujoks (TH Köln, Germany) and Sebastian Risi (ITU Copenhagen, Denmark) will be on our mentor panel.

Preliminary Programme


Monday, July 16, 11:00-17:45, Conference Room B (3F). The second session will be our best paper session.
