Call for Contributed Papers
Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers. All papers are to be submitted electronically at

Program and general inquiries can be made to

Call for Competitions
CEC 2011 will host competitions to stimulate research in evolutionary computation, promote fair evaluations, and attract students. Proposals for new competitions should include descriptions of the problems addressed, motivations and expected impact on evolutionary computation, data description, evaluation procedures and established baselines, schedules, anticipated number of participants, and a biography of the main team members.
These should be submitted to the Competitions Co-Chairs Simon Lucas at or Sean Luke at

Call for Special Sessions
Special sessions aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. Papers submitted for special sessions will be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the contributed papers. Researchers interested in organizing special sessions are invited to submit formal proposals to the Special Session Co-Chairs Julian Togelius at or Kay Wiese at A special session proposal should include the session title, a brief description of the scope and motivation, and the names, contact information and brief CV of the organizers.

Call for Tutorials and Workshops
CEC 2011 will feature tutorials and workshops, covering fundamental and advanced evolutionary computation topics. A tutorial or workshop proposal should include title, outline, expected enrolment, and presenter/organizer biography. Researchers interested in organizing tutorials are invited to submit proposals to the Tutorial Co-Chairs Dan Ashlock at or Jennie Si at

Those interested in organizing workshops are invited to submit formal proposals to the Workshop Co-Chairs Fahmida Chowdhury at or Clare Bates Congdon at
