About the Registration Requirement
for Authors and Presenters
Registration is the "cost" of a "ticket" to
attend the GECCO conference.
GECCO requires at least one author of each accepted paper to purchase a ticket
to attend to the conference. GECCO requires at least one author to attend the
conference, so that someone is at the conference to present the research.
If a researcher has more than one accepted paper to present at the conference,
there are NO additional registration fees. The author registers one time (pays
for 1 ticket), and presents as many papers as have been accepted.
Similarly, if a paper has more than one author, and more than one author will
attend the conference, then each author (person) in attendance must register
(purchase a ticket).
for Paper Presentations
GECCO will provide an LCD projector in each meeting
room. Presenters must bring their own laptop,
or arrange to use a laptop for your presentation.
Speakers presenting papers are allotted the following
presentation times, which includes equipment set up,
presentation, and questions period. If a session is
without a chair, we ask the last scheduled speaker
to perform those duties.
- Speakers presenting accepted full papers during
the track technical sessions are allocated 25
minutes for each presentation:
20 minutes for set up and presentation,
- Speakers in the Late Breaking Papers sessions
are allocated 15 minutes minutes
for each presentation:
10 minutes for set up and
followed by 5 minutes for
questions. The last scheduled

for Poster Presentations
- Format: Posters
should be A1-size in portrait orientation (i.e.
60cm/23” wide by 84cm/33” high).
This constraint is due to limited display
space, and larger
formats or landscape orientations cannot be
accommodated. Use large sans-serif font (e.g. Arial)
easily readable from 3 feet away.
- Content: Remember
that a poster is essentially a visual
communication tool: Most people
do not read a poster throughout, but
glance through it to see if there is anything interesting.
to summarize in simple language what
have achieved and why it is significant. Use diagrams,
and layout to naturally guide the viewer’s
attention, rather than explaining it all
using text. Provide
an explicit take-home message.
- Auxiliary materials: Bring a laptop
to display movies or additional material that can enhance
your discussion. A notepad may prove helpful in elaborating
further during a discussion or taking notes.
for Session Chairs
- Keep the session on schedule: use a watch, clock,
or timer. Signal the presenter when
5 minutes are left in presentation time, when presentation

and finally signal that question time is finished
the presentation is over).

well as presentation times. If a
speaker is absent, we ask you to announce a short break
