The seventh COSEAL Workshop is a forum for discussing the most recent advances in the automated configuration and selection of algorithms. It will take place on August 26 and 27, 2019 in Potsdam, Germany and is organized by Holger Hoos and Marius Lindauer as co-chairs and Tobias Friedrich and Torsten Schaub as local chairs.

The workshop will consist of posters and talks about late-breaking research and useful tools, discussions regarding intra- and international cooperation, and many opportunities to interact with other attendees. Note also that this COSEAL workshop will be co-located with the FOGA conference,  which runs from 27-29th of August.

Registration (tentative)

Registration is free, but we do not have any funding; hence lunches and dinners will be on your own expense, including the social dinner on Monday evening.

If you only want to attend and participate in discussions, please also register early, as the number of seats is limited.
