The 15 March 2007 deadline is fast approaching for paper submissions to the 2007 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (http://www.cec2007.org). Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, and co-sponsored by the Evolutionary Programming Society and the IET, the IEEE CEC 2007 will be held in Singapore, September 25-28, 2007.
The 2007 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC) will feature a world-class conference that aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of evolutionary computation from all around the globe. Technical exchanges within the research community will encompass keynote speeches, over 35 special sessions, over 10 tutorials and workshops, panel discussions as well as poster presentations. On top of these, participants will be treated to a series of social functions, receptions and networking sessions, which will serve as a vital channel to establish new connections and foster everlasting friendship among fellow counterparts.
The conference proceedings of CEC have been continuously included in the EI Compendex Database and IEEE Xplore. Prospective authors are invited to submit complete papers of no more than eight (8) pages (including results, figures, tables, and references) in IEEE two-column format. Authors should submit their papers in PDF through the online submission system, which is available at the conference website: http://www.cec2007.org.
Developing Countries Grant Program
The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Conference Travel Grant Program for Researchers from Developing Countries offers a very limited number of travel grants to assist higher-grade IEEE members presenting papers at IEEE CIS-sponsored conferences. For more information, please refer to the conference website.
Student Travel Support
The IEEE/CIS Student Travel Grant Program offers a number of travel grants to assist IEEE/CIS Student Members presenting papers at IEEE CEC 2007. For more information, please refer to the conference website.
Best Paper Awards
The Evolutionary Programming Society will sponsor two Best Student Paper Awards and one Best Overall Paper Award at CEC 2007. These awards will be presented at the banquet. The winners will be chosen by the EPS Board of Directors based on the technical merit of the accepted papers to CEC 2007.
Workshop on Preparing Academics for a Business World
The Workshop will include three coordinated contributions as listed below. There will be ample opportunity for the audience to interact during the presentation and to present examples of their own and difficulties that they face with both their host institutions and their industrial partners/clients for discussion.
