      CALL FOR WORKSHOP AND TUTORIAL PROPOSALS

      ECAL 2013 - 12th EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL LIFE

      http://www.dmi.unict.it/ecal2013/


      The ECAL 2013 Organising Committee invites proposals for Tutorials and
      Workshops to be held in conjunction with ECAL 2013 in Taormina, Italy,
      September 2-6, 2013.

      The internal organization of the satellite workshops and tutorials
      (website, paper submission, invited talks, proceedings, all deadlines
      except registration) is entirely left up to their respective
      organizers. ECAL provides the onsite logistics (seminar rooms,
      projectors, coffee breaks, and lunches) and links from the main
      conference website. All other organizational issues - including
      separate review process and proceedings publication, if any - are
      taken care of by the workshop chairs. Therefore, any workshop-specific
      requests from participants should be exclusively addressed to them,
      not to the ECAL committee.



      * IMPORTANT DATES

      Submission Workshop/Tutorial proposal: January 31, 2013
      Notification of Acceptance Workshop/Tutorial: February 15, 2013

      Workshops Information and/or submission proposal:
      workshops.ecal2013@...
      Tutorials Information and/or submission proposal:
      tutorials.ecal2013@...



      * WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

      The ECAL 2013 workshops are intended to be forums to present and
      discuss new approaches, visions, or critical reflections within a
      research area. They provide an excellent opportunity to meet people
      with similar interests, to be exposed to cutting-edge research and to
      exchange ideas in an informal setting. The organizers of an accepted
      workshop are responsible for its coordination and its publicity (e.g.,
      for sending out call for papers/abstracts), for collecting and
      reviewing the papers/abstracts, and for maintaining a webpage
      providing a list of accepted talks. The workshops can be half day or a
      full day long. The format can be decided by the organizers who are
      encouraged to plan interactive sessions.



      * TUTORIAL PROPOSALS

      ECAL 2013 tutorials will be presented by domain experts to cover
      current topics relevant to artificial life researchers and
      practitioners. Each tutorial will be 3 hours long, then we encourage
      to include into the tutorial also demos and interactive activities.
      Accepted tutorial's slide sets will be published on ECAL 2013 website.


      * SUBMISSION PROCESS

      Each tutorial/workshop proposal should include:

      1) title of the workshop/tutorial
      2) name(s) and affiliation(s) of the organizer(s)/inspector(s), with
      relative contact details
      3) a short CV of the organizer(s)/instructor(s)
      4) a brief description (half-page) of the workshop/tutorial topics

      Only for workshops:
      5) potential target participants and audience
      6) roughly approximated number of participants
      7) rough estimate of the number of talks


      All workshop proposals must be sent to: workshops.ecal2013@...
