The 24th European Conference on Genetic Programming (EuroGP) 2021 conference will take place in the city of Seville, Spain, as part of EvoStar (Evo*).

EuroGP is the premier annual conference on Genetic Programming (GP), the oldest and the only meeting worldwide devoted specifically to this branch of evolutionary computation. It is always a high-quality, enjoyable, friendly event, attracting participants from all continents, and offering excellent opportunities for networking, informal contact, and exchange of ideas with fellow researchers. It will feature a mixture of oral presentations and poster sessions and invited keynote speakers.

EuroGP is featured in the conference ranking database CORE.

You can consult the proceedings of previous events at EuroGP Conference Proceedings in SpringerLink

A comprehensive bibliography of genetic programming literature and links to related material is accessible at the Genetic Programming Bibliography web page, part of the Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies maintained and managed by William Langdon, Steven Gustafson, and John Koza.

Submission Details

Accepted papers will be published by Springer Nature in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. 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.

Submission link: coming soon.

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.

The papers which receive the best reviews will be nominated for the Best Paper Award. The highest quality papers may also be invited to submit extensions for publication in a special issue of the journal Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines (GPEM).
