Where Montreal, Canada
Submission Deadline Feb 1, 2019
Notification Due Mar 1, 2019
Final Version Due Mar 15, 2019
Categories    software engineering   artificial intelligence   automatic program repair   optimising software

Call For Papers

We invite submissions of two types of paper:

Research papers: up to 8 pages long
Position papers: up to 2 pages long


Genetic Improvement Workshop (GI-2019)
GI-2019 will be held with the 41st International Conference on
Software Engineering, ICSE 2019, on Tuesday 28 May 2019 in Montreal, Canada.

Call For Papers

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:

• repair bugs
• improve efficiency
• decrease memory consumption
• decrease energy consumption
• explore tradeoffs between non-functional properties
• transplant new functionality
• optimise software parameters
• improve practice (e.g., deployments, case studies, etc.)
• inform language or tool design

Research & Position Papers

We invite submissions of two types of paper:

Research papers: up to 8 pages long
Position papers: up to 2 pages long

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

Papers should be in ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) format. See
for details. Papers must be anonymised. All papers should be submitted
in PDF format via

All accepted papers will be presented at GI-2019 and will be published
by the ACM. At least one author of each accepted paper must register
for the workshop (authors of multiple GI-2019 papers need only register

The official publication date of the workshop proceedings is the date
the proceedings are made available in the ACM Library. This date may be
up to two weeks prior to the first day of ICSE 2019. The official
publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to
published work.
