The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference


The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO) presents the latest high-quality results in genetic and evolutionary computation since 1999. Topics include: genetic algorithms, genetic programming, ant colony optimization and swarm intelligence, complex systems (artificial life/robotics/evolvable hardware/generative and developmental systems/artificial immune systems), digital entertainment technologies and arts, evolutionary combinatorial optimization and metaheuristics, evolutionary machine learning, evolutionary multiobjective optimization, evolutionary numerical optimization, real world applications, search-based software engineering, theory and more.

The conference will take place at the Kyoto TERRSA in Kyoto. During the conference, Gion Festival will be held so that you would better make your hotel reservation as soon as possible. You can book conference hotels through the following link.
