      NICSO 2013 will be the sixth edition of the International Workshop on
      Nature Inspired Cooperative Strategies for Optimization. This workshop
      aims at bringing together international researchers and practitioners
      from different disciplines in order to discuss recent advances and
      exchange ideas on the current state of the art of cooperative problem
      solving strategies.

      All submitted papers will be blind reviewed by at least two reviewers
      from the Program Committee. Selection criteria will be based on
      relevance, originality, significance, impact, technical soundness and
      quality of the presentation. Contributions are expected to provide
      original results, insights and experimental innovations. Manuscripts
      must be in PDF, not exceeding 12 pages and conforming to the Latex
      template at Instructions for Authors page for the book series Studies in
      Computational Intelligence (http://www.springer.com/series/7092).
      Contributions are welcome to submission through the system available at
      http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nicso2013

      STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS: Successfully accepted postgraduate research
      student papers will automatically enter a competition from where the
      best will be chosen and offered a scholarship that offsets the student
      registration fee. The selection process criteria will be based on
      originality, technical soundness, positioning and writing style.

      The accepted papers will be published in the book series on STUDIES IN
      COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE (Springer)
      (http://www.springer.com/series/7092) indexed by ISI Web of Science
      Conference Proceedings, DBLP, Ulrichs, SCOPUS, MathSciNet, Current
      Mathematical Publications, Mathematical Reviews, Zentralblatt Math:
      MetaPress and Springerlink. The authors of a selection of the best
      accepted papers will be invited to revise and extend their contributions
      for publication in a special issue in the JOURNAL OF MEMETIC COMPUTING
      (Springer)
      (http://www.springer.com/engineering/computational+intelligence+and+complexity/journal/12293).
