      2014 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2014)
      July 12-16, 2014, Vancouver, BC, Canada

      Organized by ACM SIGEVO

      The GECCO 2014 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops 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 Workshops Proposals: November 6, 2013
      Notification of Acceptance: November 29, 2013

      ** Workshop Proposals **

      GECCO workshops provide the possibility to commonly develop visions and
      exchange ideas in an informal setting, especially if focused on an emerging
      research field or interdisciplinary research area. In contrast to regular
      sessions, workshops can (and should) host interactive sessions (posters,
      discussions, demonstrations, etc.). Attendance at the workshops will be free
      to all GECCO attendees.

      Workshop organizers are responsible for coordination and publicity. They
      collect and review papers, and provide a list of accepted papers and their
      authors, if applicable. If required, the GECCO organizers may provide
      additional support to the workshop organizers, such as publicity. Note that
      organizers, participants and presenters must register for the conference.
      Accepted workshop papers will be collected by Sheridan/ACM Press, and
      published in a companion volume to the conference proceedings.

      ** Submission Process **

      Each workshop proposal should include:
      1. A half-page extended abstract (in plain text) that includes: the workshop
      title, the name and affiliation of the organizer(s), and a description of
      scope and content.
      2. Short bio of the organizer(s) (about half-page in plain text)
      3. [Highly encouraged] A description of any interactive activity or demo
      planned within the workshop.
      4. A draft schedule of the workshop, including the estimated duration (1 to
      max 4 sessions) and type of sessions.

      ** Reviewing **

      Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the GECCO 2014 organizing committee,
      based on GECCO attendees' likely interest, the breadth and depth of the
      topic(s), and the expertise and credentials of the organizer(s).
