Dear researcher,

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 six (6) 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.

VizNET 2007 Workshop

Intersections in Visualization Practices and Techniques
17-19 April Leicestershire, UK

New visualization technologies, practices and techniques have drawn
science and the arts ever closer together, and the exchange of ideas
between the two has become increasingly important. This workshop is
about how to create and represent information or ideas through
visualization techniques with a view to achieving better
understanding through collaboration in visualization. The workshop is
an opportunity for researchers working in science and engineering or
the arts and humanities to develop practical experience across a
broad range of visualization practice and thus a framework for
articulating new ideas about working together.

Who should attend?

-- Arts and Humanities researchers, performers and artists,
expertt in one or more areas of visualization, who would like an
introduction to, and overview of, other areas of visualization,
including the latest research results, ideas and= applications.

-- Arts and Humanities researchers, performers and artists new
to visualization who would like an introduction to, and overview of,
the latest visualization practices and techniques.

Format of workshop:

17 April: Half day introduction to what is visualization, how it is
applied and examples of current practice in a range of processes.
This will be followed by demonstrations of stereoscopic and
grid-based visualization and a workshop dinner.

18 April: Full day workshop with nine sessions providing
introductions to, and overviews of

-- Information Visualization v. Mathematical Visualization
-- Data Acquisition
-- 3D Modelling
-- Display Technologies
-- Open Source Software v. Proprietary Software
-- Games Platforms and MMORPGS
-- Web-based "portal delivery" visualization
-- Grid-based visualization
-- Documentation

To be followed by a plenary discussion looking for intersections
between Scientific/Engineering and Arts/Humanities Visualization and
a workshop dinner. An excellent opportunity to network and look for
potential collaborators for your next research project after gaining
an overview of what is available and who is working in what areas.

19 April: Full day of expert seminars in specialist areas.

Will there be follow-up activities? VizNET 2007 is hosted by VizNET,
the UK Visualization Support Network, and 3DVisA, the 3D
Visualisation in the Arts Network. Your input will assist us to
determine which communities of practice and which areas of
visualization could benefit from dedicated courses. It will also
assist us to identify emerging intersections in visualization
practices and techniques within which additional network support
could facilitate cross-domain collaboration.

How much will it cost?

Registration is free of charge, but essential as places are strictly
limited. Participants must register online at
http://www.viznet.ac.uk/viznet2007/ to reserve a place at the
workshop. There are three registration schemes: Day 1 and Day 2, Day
3 only, and all three days. Participants are asked to pay their own
travel and accommodation costs. Two levels of hotel accommodation are
offered on the workshop website. Participants can elect to find their
own accommodation, for example a B&B in Loughborough, but still need
to register online to reserve a place at the workshop.
