The CREST Open Workshop programme consists of a series of informal workshops organised by the CREST Centre (Centre for Research on Evolution Search & Testing) at UCL.
The aim of this regular workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on a topic with a focus on discussion and interaction and with no formal proceedings. We create the program by invitation and then issue a call of participation. Outstanding researchers from all over the world are invited to present their original work and the workshops attract a high level of active international participation.
63rd CREST workshop: Genetic Improvement and Software Specialisation
27 and 28 March 2023
Genetic Improvement (GI) uses automated search in order to improve existing software. Aside from bug fixing, GI has been used to optimise software properties such as runtime, memory and energy consumption, and specialising to particular application domains. In light of GI usage to improve software performance through software specialisation, we invite experts in similar areas, e.g., software performance, compiler optimisation, parameter tuning, optimisation for particular application domains. The goal of this workshop is to reflect on the progress that the research community has made over the last years, share experience in research and deployment, and identify key challenges that need to be addressed in future research.
This will be a fully physical event.
