      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
      *********************************************************************


      GECCO-2013 offers six competitions and each of them involves a
      completely different challenge!

      Individual deadlines are approaching for each of the competitions – but
      it is not too late to participate!


      Also don't forget the great opportunities offered by GECCO-2013 
      competitions:


      # Win an NVIDIA TESLA K20 GPU (more info at goo.gl/VTaVr)

      # Publish on a special issue of GPEM (see http://goo.gl/b0p1V)


      *********************************************************************
      The Evolutionary Art, Design, and Creativity Competition
      *********************************************************************
      The Evolutionary Art, Design, and Creativity Competition at the
      Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference showcases the power
      of evolutionary computation through human-quality artistic works or
      creativity enhancing experiences generated by or with the assistance
      of evolution. Entries can be music, images, sculptures, videos, or
      interactive online experiences, but are not limited to these forms
      of expression; the goal is that the submissions exhibit some form of
      independent creativity through genetic and evolutionary computation.

      Organizers: Christian Gagné, Amy K. Hoover
      Submission deadline: June 14, 2013

      GPUs for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation
      *********************************************************************
      This competition focuses on the applications of genetic and
      evolutionary computation that can maximally exploit the parallelism
      provided by low-cost consumer graphical cards. The competition will
      award the best applications both in terms of degree of parallelism
      obtained, in terms of overall speed-up, and in terms of programming
      style.

      Organizers: Daniele Loiacono, Antonino Tumeo
      Submission deadline: June 14, 2013

      *********************************************************************
      Visualizing Evolution Competition
      *********************************************************************
      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; this data
      will be provided by the competition organisers. 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.

      Organizers: David Walker, Richard Everson, Jonathan Fieldsend
      Submission deadline: June 10, 2013

      *********************************************************************
      EvoRobocode Competition
      *********************************************************************
      EvoRobocode challenges you to apply Evolutionary Computation to
      design a competitive robot tank for the Robocode game! Robocode is a
      programming game, where the goal is developing in Java a robot tank
      to fight against other tanks. Battles can be either run in real-time
      and displayed on the screen or run in a batch mode without
      visualization.

      Organizers: Daniele Loiacono, Moshe Sipper
      Submission deadline: June 21, 2013

      *********************************************************************
      Simulated Car Racing Competition
      *********************************************************************
      The goal of the championship is to design a controller for a racing
      car that will compete on a set of unknown tracks first alone
      (against the clock) and then against other drivers. The controllers
      perceive the racing environment through a number of sensors that
      describe the relevant features of the car surroundings (e.g., the
      track limits, the position of near-by obstacles), of the car state
      (the fuel level, the engine RPMs, the current gear, etc.), and the
      current game state (lap time, number of lap, etc.). The controller
      can perform the typical driving actions (clutch, changing gear,
      accelerate, break, steering the wheel, etc.)

      *********************************************************************
      Industrial Challenge
      *********************************************************************
      This competition is accomplished with a partner from industry who
      strives to develop innovative and reliable smart home control systems.
      Accordingly the goal of this challenge is to develop accurate and
      efficient forecasting methods and to apply them to real-world smart
      home time series data.
