The full call for submissions:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We invite submissions that discuss recent developments in all areas of
research on, and applications of, Genetic Improvement.

GI is the premier workshop in the field and provides an opportunity
for researchers interested in automated program repair and software
optimisation to disseminate their work, exchange ideas and discover
new research directions.

Topics of interest include both the theory and practice of
Genetic Improvement. Applications include, but are not limited to,
using GI to:
* Improve efficiency
* Decrease memory consumption
* Decrease energy consumption
* Transplant new functionality
* Specialise software
* Translate between programming languages
* Generate multiple versions of software
* Improve low level or binary code
* Improve SE documentation, specification, training and educational
tools and techniques
* Improve software engineering artifacts, e.g., documentation,
specification, training and educational tools, materials and techniques
* Repair bugs
* GI techniques in industrial settings

Keynote:
The keynote will be given by Dr. Myra B. Cohen head of
Iowa State's LaVA-Ops, Laboratory for Variability-Aware Assurance
and Testing of Organic Programs.

The invited keynote presentation will be given by Myra Cohen.
Dr. Cohen is a full professor at Iowa State University (USA), where
she holds the Lanh and Oanh Nguyen Chair in Software Engineering in
the Department of Computer Science. She is head of Iowa State's
LaVA-Ops, Laboratory for Variability-Aware Assurance and Testing of
Organic Programs. As well as genetic improvement, her research covers
software testing of highly-configurable software, SBSE, applications
of combinatorial designs (CIT), and the synergy between systems and
synthetic biology and software engineering. She has served on many
software engineering conferences, including this year as the
Technical Briefings-track chair of ICSE 2023.

Hybrid Event:
Due to the continued COVID19 pandemic, as with GI 2020-22, the
workshop may be held online with recordings available on YouTube.
Eg https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLI8fiFpB7BoIHgl5CsdtjfWvHlE5N6pje

Students travel awards:
We are pleased to announce that we will offer up to 5 awards
of up to $250(USD) each to partially reimburse travel costs for
students whose work is presented at the GI@ICSE 2023 workshop.

Priority will be given based on the student's need and submission
quality.

Students applying for an award should submit a first-author
regular full paper to the genetic improvement workshop.

Moreover, their supervisor should send a one-paragraph note of
recommendation to Dr. Vesna Nowack v.nowack@imperial.ac.uk
listing:

* the student's area of work.
* the supervisor's support of the student's application.

These awards are available thanks to the EPSRC grant on
"Automated Software Specialisation Using Genetic Improvement"

We encourage authors to submit early and in-progress work.
The workshop emphasises interaction and discussion.

All papers should be submitted electronically as PDFs via HotCRP
https://gi-at-icse2023-workshop.hotcrp.com/
double-blind as PDFs in the ICSE conference format. All accepted
papers must be presented at GI 2023 and will appear in the ICSE
workshops volume. The official publication date of the workshop
proceedings is the date the proceedings are made available by IEEE.
This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2023.
The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent
filings related to published work.
