Genetic Programming Theory & Practice XVII

Important Dates

  • May 1, 2019: First drafts of book chapters should be submitted. These need not be formatted, but should be more substantial than an abstract and suitable for preliminary review by your colleagues.
  • May 6, 2019: Review assignments will be provided.
  • May 16-19, 2019: Workshop, presentations, and discussions.
  • August 1, 2019: Revised chapters due.


There will be three invited keynote lectures, one at the beginning of each of the first three days of the workshop. Keynotes will be scheduled for one hour each, including time for questions and discussion.

Presentations by workshop attendees will be scheduled for 30 minutes each, plus an additional 15 minutes for directed discussion. A discussant will be assigned for each presentation from among the attendees, who will have read the paper, who will be given an opportunity to present their own (brief) slide deck as needed.

Time has been set aside for group discussions, retrospectives, follow-ups on speakers’ topics, planning for the current and future proceedings volumes, and so forth, but the schedule is very tight this year, given that we have the Hackathon or more hands-on GP experience on Sunday morning.
