GECCO Challenge

The Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO), organized by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), is the largest conference in the field of genetic and evolutionary computation and presents the latest high-quality results in this growing field.

The GECCO Industrial Challenge is a yearly competition for CI researchers and practitioners taking place at the GECCO. It poses difficult real-world problems provided by industry partners from various fields. Highlights of the GECCO Industrial Challenge include:

  • Interesting Problem Domains
  • Real-world Data
  • Realistic Quality Measurement
  • Fair Submission Assessment

The GECCO IC2018 is now closed, results will soon be online!

Check out GECCO IC2018 for more information.  This year for the first time also with the option for 2-page paper submissions!
