Subject: Call for Nominations: CAJASTUR "MAMDANI PRIZE" FOR SOFT
COMPUTING - SIXTH EDITION

CAJASTUR "MAMDANI PRIZE" FOR SOFT COMPUTING

The CAJASTUR "MAMDANI PRIZE" FOR SOFT COMPUTING is meant to distinguish a
person or group of persons for the realization of a relevant scientific or
industrial application, meaning an original contribution in the area of Soft
Computing.

The Prize consists of 20,000.00 euros and a Plaque. The prize winner (or the
representative in case of a group) will be invited to travel to Oviedo
(Spain) to personally receive the Award. The prize winner commits
herself/himself to attend the awarding ceremony, to deliver a specialized
talk at the European Centre for Soft Computing as well as a talk open to the
general public in Asturias.

Deadline for submitting applications for the 2012 Prize is July 14th 2012.

Subject: MASTER IN SOFT COMPUTING AND INTELLIGENT DATA ANALYSIS

One year Master, fully in English, with international lecturers, and
scholarships program.
The registration period will close next July 10th.

MASTER IN SOFT COMPUTING AND INTELLIGENT DATA ANALYSIS

Soft Computing (SC) and Intelligent Data Analysis (IDA) provide powerful
tools for problem solving in a variety of domains. A non-exhaustive list of
typical applications includes client segmentation, fraud detection, credit
scoring, process control, logistics and information retrieval. Applications
can be found in all sectors: engineering, finance, marketing, operations
research, bioinformatics, medicine, …

The tremendous potential of SC and IDA has created a demand for well-trained
professionals in this field. For this reason, the University of Oviedo and
the European Centre for Soft Computing have joined efforts to offer an
Official Master Course in Soft Computing and Intelligent Data Analysis. This
is a one-year full-time program that combines rigorous training in advanced
techniques with a close contact with real applications.

Academic Period: September 2012 to July 2013.
Language: English.
Class Schedule: From 15:30 until 20:00, Monday through Friday.
Location: Research Building in the Mieres Campus of the University of
Oviedo (SPAIN).
Application Periods:
         First pre-registration period: from 15 February to 15 March
         Second pre-registration period: from 15 May to 10 July 2012

Pre-registration and registration will be done through the on-line
application in the following site:

Subject: bibtex tools to trim long editor lists

There has been some discussion on the GP mailing list about
(semi)-automated ways to reduce the volume of citations. In
particular ways to replace long lists of editors (ie GECCO) or authors
by first name, et al. I have placed some suggestions in the tools
sub-directory of the genetic programming bibliography. See
http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/~wbl/biblio/tools/README.html

The new tools are:

bbl_others.awk
 Gawk script to replace long author and editor lists by first name
 "and others". This assumes your BibTeX style file understands
 "others" is not the name of the second author.

gpbook.bst
 BibTeX style file written by Riccardo Poli for "A Field Guide to
 Genetic Programming" http://www.gp-field-guide.org.uk/

gpbib_bbl.awk
 Gawk script for adding links into the GP bibliography from your
 paper the papers it cites.

kapalike.bst
 Version of the kapalike.bst BibTeX style file which (like
 gpbook.bst) automatically truncates long lists with et al.
