FOGA (Foundations of Genetic Algorithms) is a biannual workshop (except for the 3-years gap between FOGA 2002 and FOGA 2005) that started in 1990 in Bloomington, Indiana, USA.
Initially dedicated to the theory of Genetic Algorithms (as its name claims), FOGA rapidly evolved to cover the whole field of Evolutionary Computation. However, the FOGA brand was already well-known and has hence been preserved.

FOGA is small workshop, allowing deep discussions after each presentation, thanks to its single track and limited audience: only authors of accepted papers and a few invited researchers attend the workshop.

FOGA 2017 will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark in January 2017.
