      VISUALISING EVOLUTION COMPETITION

      to be held as part of the

      2013 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO-2013)
      July 6-10, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

      Organized by ACM SIGEVO
      http://www.sigevo.org/gecco-2013

      Submission Deadline for this competition: June 10th, 2013


      GOAL

      This competition is designed to enable participants to exhibit their cutting
      edge visualisations of evolutionary processes. The competition has two streams:
      the first involves visualising the evolution of a solution set to an
      optimisation problem using data generated during the running of an evolutionary
      algorithm (the data is available from the competition website,
      http://www.vizgec.ex.ac.uk/competition/index.php). In the second stream,
      researchers can submit a visualisation of their own data, provided it falls
      within the remit of evolutionary computing. The goal of the competition is to
      find visualisations that enhance our understanding of evolutionary processes.


      RULES

      Entries to the Visualising Evolution Competition should comprise a program and
      relevant data. If the competition data is not used, competitors should submit
      data collected from running an evolutionary computing algorithm along with their
      visualisation program. The materials required for submission are as follows:

      * The visualisation program and any instructions necessary to install and run
      it;
      * Data for the application if the competition data is not used;
      * A two-page description of the visualisation program, the evolutionary
      process being visualised, and any insight gained through use of the
      visualisation.


      SCORING

      The submissions will be scored by an expert panel, which will judge based on the
      criteria of originality, quality, and relevance:

      * Originality: this criterion is primarily to show that a submission is unique
      and creative;
      * Quality: a submission scoring high on this criterion will be visually
      appealing, easy to interact with, and easy to interpret;
      * Relevance: this criterion evaluates the submission on its relevance and
      applicability to real world evolutionary problems.


      SUBMISSION

      All submissions should be sent to vizgec@... by June 10th 2013. The
      authors of the best entry will be invited to submit a paper to a special issue
      the Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines journal covering the GECCO
      competitions.
