      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

      The accepted papers will be published in the book series on STUDIES IN
      (http://www.springer.com/series/7092) indexed by ISI Web of Science
