**** GECCO 2014 CALL FOR TUTORIALS PROPOSALS ****
2014 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2014)
July 12-16, 2014, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Organized by ACM SIGEVO
The GECCO 2014 Organising Committee invites proposals for tutorials to be held
in conjunction with the 2014 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference
(GECCO 2014) in Vancouver, BC, Canada, July 12-16, 2014.
** Important Dates **
Deadline for Tutorials Proposals: November 6, 2013
Notification of Acceptance: November 29, 2013
** Tutorial Proposals **
Tutorials at GECCO 2014 will be presented by domain experts to cover current
topics relevant to evolutionary computation researchers and practitioners.
Each tutorial will be 110 minutes long. We encourage the inclusion of
interactive activities and demos.
Tutorials will be free to all GECCO 2014 attendees. One instructor/presenter
of each accepted tutorial will be able to register for GECCO at half the
regular rate (there are no multiple discounts for each tutorial).
It is expected that all the instructors involved in a tutorial will attend the
conference. Accepted tutorials' slide sets will be collected by Sheridan/ACM
Press, and published as part of a companion volume to the conference
proceedings in the ACM Digital library.
** Submission Process **
Each tutorial proposal should include:
1. A half-page extended abstract (in plain text) that includes: the title of the
tutorial, the name and affiliation of the instructor(s), and a description of
the tutorial scope and content.
2. Short bio of the instructor(s) (about half page in plain text).
3. [Highly encouraged] A description of any interactive activity or demo planned
within the tutorial presentation.
** Reviewing **
Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the GECCO 2014 organizing committee,
based on the GECCO attendees' likely interest in them, the breadth and depth
of the topic(s), and the expertise and credentials of the instructor(s).
