In either case, the registered individual must make the request for the transfer to Registration Support prior to the start of the conference.

About the Registration Requirement for Authors and Presenters

GECCO requires at least one author of each accepted paper (the presenting author) to complete a paid registration by the author registration deadline. GECCO requires at least one author to register to attend the conference, so that someone is at the conference to present the research.

If an accepted paper has more than one author, and more than one of those authors will attend, then each author who attends the conference must pay a registration. Only the presenting author must register by the deadline; the other authors do not have a deadline to register.

If an author is the presenting author for more than one accepted paper, the presenting author pays only one registration.
