[GECCO 2013 - Final Reminder] Call for Tutorial and Workshop Proposals (Deadline November 7th)
- CALL FOR TUTORIAL AND WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
2013 GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTATION CONFERENCE (GECCO-2013)
Sponsored by ACM SIGEVO
The GECCO-2013 Program Committee invites proposals for Tutorials and
Workshops to be held in conjunction with the 2013 Genetic and
Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2013) in Amsterdam,
The Netherlands, July 06-10, 2013.
** IMPORTANT DATES **
Deadline for Proposals: November 07th, 2012
Notification of Acceptance: November 30th, 2012
Tutorials Information and Submissions: gabriela.ochoa@...
Workshops Information and Submissions: mike.preuss@...
** TUTORIAL PROPOSALS **
GECCO Tutorials will be presented by domain experts to cover current
topics relevant to evolutionary computation researchers and
practitioners. Each tutorial will be 110-minutes long; therefore,
we encourage the inclusion of interactive activities and demos.
Tutorials will be free to all GECCO 2013 attendees. Tutorial
instructors will receive free registration for a new tutorial, and
half-registration fees for a repeating tutorial. It is expected that all
the instructors involved in a tutorial will attend the conference.
Accepted tutorial's slide sets will be collected by Sheridan/ACM Press,
and published along with the conference proceedings and the ACM
** 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. Note that organizers, participants
and presenters must register to the conference. Accepted workshop
papers will be collected by Sheridan/ACM Press, and published in a
separate workshop proceedings volume.
** SUBMISSION PROCESS **
Each tutorial/workshop proposal should include:
1. A half-page extended abstract (in plain text) that includes:
the tutorial/workshop title, the name and affiliation of the
instructor(s), and a description of 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/workshop.
4. [Workshops only] A draft schedule of the workshop, including the
estimated duration (1 to max 4 sessions) and type of sessions.
** REVIEWING **
Tutorial and Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the GECCO 2013
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)/organiser(s).
Looking forward to your submissions.
Gabriela Ochoa and Mike Preuss
