Tutorial Proposals

General Information

The Tutorials Chair of GECCO 2024 invites domain experts to submit proposals for presenting a tutorial at GECCO 2024. The NON-EXTENSIBLE deadline is:

  • Proposals for tutorials: November 2, 2023
  • Acceptance Decision: December 7, 2023

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

Tutorials at GECCO 2024 will provide an excellent opportunity to learn about current theory and practice in evolutionary computation from domain experts. We are now inviting proposals for tutorials. Each tutorial is expected to be 110 minutes long. We encourage the inclusion of interactive activities and demos.

Tutorials will be free to all GECCO 2024 attendees. We strongly encourage tutorials in hybrid mode rather than online only.

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

One instructor/presenter of each accepted tutorial will get a discounted registration. The discount can be divided among tutorial instructors if there is more than one. Each presenter is eligible for only a single tutorial discount, i.e., it is not possible to aggregate discounts from more tutorials. If a tutorial instructor is also presenting papers/workshop papers/posters, this discount is halved (i.e., 50% shared between speakers).

The outcome of the review process is scheduled to be announced on December 7, 2023.
