Women@GECCO Workshop


The Women@GECCO Workshop is a venue where students and junior researchers from different under-represented cohorts in Evolutionary Computation (EC) interact in an informal setting with more established women researchers on various issues related to fostering and balancing one’s professional and social life, as well as on inserting oneself in the EC community.

The workshop focus is “GECCO women welcome EC newcomers”. Students of any gender are therefore encouraged to attend the Women@GECCO Workshop. Coming soon: The Women@GECCO page for more information on the program and keynote speakers.
