      **** GECCO 2014 CALL FOR TUTORIALS PROPOSALS ****

      2014 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2014)
      July 12-16, 2014, Vancouver, BC, Canada
      http://www.sigevo.org/gecco-2014

      Organized by ACM SIGEVO

      The GECCO 2014 Organising Committee invites proposals for tutorials 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 Tutorials Proposals: November 6, 2013
      Notification of Acceptance: November 29, 2013

      ** Tutorial Proposals **

      Tutorials at GECCO 2014 will be presented by domain experts to cover current
      topics relevant to evolutionary computation researchers and practitioners.
      Each tutorial will be 110 minutes long. We encourage the inclusion of
      interactive activities and demos.

      Tutorials will be free to all GECCO 2014 attendees. One instructor/presenter
      of each accepted tutorial will be able to register for GECCO at half the
      regular rate (there are no multiple discounts for each tutorial).

      It is expected that all the instructors involved in a tutorial will attend the
      conference. Accepted tutorials' slide sets will be collected by Sheridan/ACM
      Press, and published as part of a companion volume to the conference
      proceedings in the ACM Digital library.

      ** Submission Process **

      Each tutorial proposal should include:
      1. A half-page extended abstract (in plain text) that includes: the title of the
      tutorial, the name and affiliation of the instructor(s), and a description of
      the tutorial 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.

      ** Reviewing **

      Tutorial proposals will be reviewed by the GECCO 2014 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).

      ** Information and Submissions **
