Dear Colleague,

Our apologies if you received multiple copies of this announcement.

*****The conference proceedings of CEC have been=20
continuously included in the EI Compendex Database and IEEE Xplore.*****

    IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC)
                September 25-28, 2007
           Swiss=F4tel The Stamford, Singapore
            Website: http://www.cec2007.org


We would like to invite you to attend the 2007
IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC).
Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence
Society, and co-sponsored by the Evolutionary
Programming Society and the IET, the CEC 2007
will be held in Singapore, September 25-28, 2007.
The annual IEEE Congress on Evolutionary
Computation is one of the leading events in the
area of evolutionary computation. It covers all
topics in evolutionary computation, including, but not limited to:

* Ant colony optimization * Artificial immune systems
* Artificial life *
Autonomous mental & behavior development
* Bioinformatics & bioengineering *
Coevolution & collective behavior
* Cognitive systems & applications *
Combinatorial & numerical optimization
* Computational finance & economics *
Constraint & uncertainty handling
* Evolutionary data mining * Evolutionary design
* Evolutionary games *
Evolutionary intelligent agents
* Evolutionary learning systems *
Evolutionary robotic & control systems
* Evolvable hardware & software *
Evolving neural networks & fuzzy systems
* Memetic & hybrid algorithms *
Molecular & quantum computing
* Multiobjective optimization * Particle swarm=
* Real-world applications * Representation & operators
* Theory of evolutionary computation

CEC 2007 will feature a world-class conference
that aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners in the field of evolutionary
computation and computational intelligence from
all around the globe. Technical exchanges within
the research community will encompass keynote
speeches, special sessions, tutorial workshops,
panel discussions as well as poster
presentations. On top of this, 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.

Singapore is a vibrant commercial and financial
hub, which at the same time also serves its role
as a melting pot for the fusion of a diverse mix
of many different cultures. Visitors to this
tropical island resort will be treated to a great
array of interesting attractions, festival
celebrations and cultural events, not forgetting
the one-stop shopping and eating experience in
this entertainment paradise. The conglomeration
of all the different elements will definitely
give visitors of Singapore an exciting and unforgettable experience.

Important Dates:

Paper Submission: March 15, 2007
Decision Notification: May 15, 2007
Camera-Ready Submission: June 15, 2007

User Requirements Gathering for the Humanities - Call for Participants

Workshop Two - Requirements gathering in eScience

Following a successful application to the AHRC, the 'Building a
Virtual Research Environment for the Humanities'
(http://bvreh.humanities.ox.ac.uk) project is holding the second of a
series of workshops to highlight the necessity of user requirements
gathering for the humanities community.

Thursday 12th October, 10.30 a.m. to 4 p.m, The Classics Centre, The
Old Boys School, George Street, Oxford, OX1 2RL.

The JISC funded 'Building a Virtual Research Environment for the Humanities'
(BVREH) project has recently been carrying out an extensive user
requirements survey of humanities researchers at Oxford University. This is
one of a number of ICT projects based in the humanities which have begun to
focus on user requirements gathering prior to developing technology. The
project feels that this is an important time to bring together these
initiatives and work towards building a requirements capturing community for
the humanities sector.

The workshops are of particular importance in identifying the needs of
humanities researchers in a broad range of subject areas and disciplines.
Building on the existing expertise in e-Science they will attempt to
identify ways in which humanities research can develop equivalent and
inter-disciplinary structures and methodologies which will serve the needs
of the research community and link it more firmly to ICT research structures
on a national scale.

Workshop Two - Requirements gathering in eScience

The second workshop is designed to provide information about current methods
of requirements capture within the e-science sector and to encourage
discussion as to the similarities and differences between the sciences and
humanities. In this respect the workshop will address what the wider
community is doing, what is and is not relevant to requirements capture
within humanities research, and will encourage participants to begin to
think about a methodology devoted to the humanities.

In conjunction with Marina Jirotka of the Oxford Centre for Requirements and
Foundations, the session will outline the key methodologies utilized within
the sciences, encouraging discussion and interaction around the relevance
and benefit of current e-Science methods within the humanities.

In order to gain a good sense of those wishing to attend, individuals are
asked to submit a paragraph describing their interest is the workshop,
together with a short summary of their background. Please confirm if you
would like to attend by emailing ruth.kirkham_at_humanities.ox.ac.uk by
Friday 6th October 2006.

There are a limited number of places available so please book early to avoid

Lunch and light refreshments will be served during the day.

Kind regards,

Ruth Kirkham
