[Apologies if you receive multiple copies]

2023 ACM Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2023)
July 15-19, 2023
Lisbon, Portugal and Virtual (hybrid conference)

Important Dates and Deadlines:
Tutorial Proposals: November 27, 2022
Acceptance Decision: December 9, 2022
Conference: July 15-19, 2023

*** Call for Tutorials ***

Tutorials at GECCO 2023 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 2023 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).

*** Tutorial Proposal Submission ***

Tutorial Proposals are submitted using the form on the GECCO 2023 web page ( Instructions on how to login into the web page and how to create an account are provided on the webpage.

*** Reviewing ***

Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the Tutorials Chair, Tutorials Committee, and other members of the GECCO 2023 Organizing Committee. Final decisions will be made based on GECCO attendees’ likely interest in them, the breadth and depth of the topic(s), and the expertise and credentials of the instructor(s).
