GECCO 2014 Call for Workshop Proposals
- **** GECCO 2014 CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS ****
2014 Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference (GECCO 2014)
July 12-16, 2014, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Organized by ACM SIGEVO
The GECCO 2014 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops 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 Workshops Proposals: November 6, 2013
Notification of Acceptance: November 29, 2013
** 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. If required, the GECCO organizers may provide
additional support to the workshop organizers, such as publicity. Note that
organizers, participants and presenters must register for the conference.
Accepted workshop papers will be collected by Sheridan/ACM Press, and
published in a companion volume to the conference proceedings.
** Submission Process **
Each workshop proposal should include:
1. A half-page extended abstract (in plain text) that includes: the workshop
title, the name and affiliation of the organizer(s), and a description of
scope and content.
2. Short bio of the organizer(s) (about half-page in plain text)
3. [Highly encouraged] A description of any interactive activity or demo
planned within the workshop.
4. A draft schedule of the workshop, including the estimated duration (1 to
max 4 sessions) and type of sessions.
** Reviewing **
Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the GECCO 2014 organizing committee,
based on GECCO attendees' likely interest, the breadth and depth of the
topic(s), and the expertise and credentials of the organizer(s).
