EuroGP

21th European Conference on Genetic Programming

EuroGP is the premier annual conference on Genetic Programming, the oldest and the only meeting worldwide devoted specifically to this branch of evolutionary computation. It is always a very enjoyable event attracting participants from all continents, offering excellent opportunities for networking, informal contact, exchange of ideas and discussions with fellow researchers, in a friendly and relaxed environment. High quality papers describing new original research are sought on topics strongly related to the evolution of computer programs, ranging from theoretical work to innovative applications. The conference will feature a mixture of oral presentations and poster sessions. In 2015, the EuroGP acceptance rate was 50% (33.3% for oral presentations).

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Innovative applications of GP
  • Theoretical developments
  • GP performance and behaviour

Publication Details

Accepted papers will be presented orally or as posters at the Conference and will be printed in the proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Previous editions of EuroGP were published in the following Springer Verlag LNCS volumes

The papers which receive the best reviews will be nominated for the Best Paper Award.

Submission Details

Submissions must be original and not published elsewhere. They will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. The reviewing process will be double-blind, so please omit information about the authors in the submitted paper. Submit your manuscript in Springer LNCS format.

Page limit: 16 pages (this number has been increased for all conferences in Evostar 2018)

The authors of accepted papers will have to improve their paper on the basis of the reviewers' comments and will be asked to send a camera ready version of their manuscripts. At least one author of each accepted work has to register for the conference, attend the conference and present the work.
