The Workshops Chairs of GECCO 2023 invite domain experts to submit proposals for organizing a workshop at GECCO 2023. The non-extensible deadline is:
- Proposals for workshops: Sunday,
November 27December 1, 2022 (anywhere on earth)
- Acceptance Decision: Friday, December 9, 2022 (anywhere on earth)
If you submitted a proposal you can view it via the My Info page.
Workshops at GECCO provide the possibility to commonly develop visions and exchange ideas in an informal setting, especially if focused on an emerging research field or interdisciplinary research area. In contrast to regular sessions, workshops can (and should) host interactive sessions (discussions, demonstrations, etc.). Attendance at the workshops will be free to all GECCO attendees.
Workshop organizers are responsible for coordination and publicity. If paper submissions are invited for the workshop (this is not a requirement!), workshop organizers take care of the review process, under the supervision of the GECCO 2023 workshop chairs. If applicable, workshop organizers also provide a list of additional (invited) speakers and titles of talks to be given.
Note that organizers, participants and presenters must register for the conference.
We strongly encourage workshops in hybrid mode rather than online only.
If possible, at least one organizer of each workshop should attend the conference in person.
Accepted workshop papers will be published as part of a Companion volume to the conference proceedings in the ACM Digital library.

Submitters should be prepared to provide the following information:
- The workshop title and acronym (or short title). Please refrain from using special characters in the title.
- A description of scope and content, and whether the workshop is in hybrid mode or online only. Those fields will be displayed on the website as the default description for the workshop if it is accepted.
