([log in to unmask]) with subject‚ "GECCO 2011 NFT Proposal"‚
not later than 30th June 2010.

** SELECTION **
The list of all NFTs will be in display at GECCO 2010 and a ballot (details to
be announced later) will be carried out during GECCO 2010.

Prospective chairs will be allowed to submit a one minute video to support their
track. The videos will be put on-line on the GECCO-2011 website.

The most voted NFT will be selected for inclusion into GECCO 2011 program. The
selected NFT will have the same status, editorial procedures and quality control
as normal GECCO tracks. NFTs are expected to run for one year only.

We believe this to be an exciting opportunity for the community to explore
innovative, perhaps risky & adventurous research topics, within the framework of

Subject: Post-doc at Oxford University in Combinatorial Optimization

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Spreading
Processes on Networks and Applied Combinatorial Optimization. We also have a one
year appointment on network inference (see www.physics.ox.ac.uk/jobs/)

The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 2 years. We will
consider candidates either from Applied Combinatorial Optimization or from
Network Science.

Candidates with a background in combinatorial optimization will investigate a
spectrum of computational methods from applied combinatorial optimization as
applied to a set of canonical problems constrained by real data. The aim will be
to reach across methods from the many ways in which combinatorial optimization
is performed in practice, making sure that we consider a good representation of
typical metaheuristics. One of our objectives will be to use these methods as a
way of investigating the nature of the data as well as the nature of the
algorithms. Our benchmarked methods will be turned to improved approaches to
detecting clusters in graphs and methods for controlling rumour propagation on
social networks.

Subject: AIAI2010 - Workshop on Computational Intelligence for Modeling and
         Prediction

Workshop on Computational Intelligence for Modeling and Prediction
at the 6th IFIP Conference on Artificial Intelligence
Applications & Innovations (AIAI 2010)
5-7 October 2010, Ayia Napa, Cyprus

Computational Intelligence, which is considered as a sub-branch of Artificial
Intelligence, studies, mostly nature inspired, adaptive mechanisms in order to
enable or facilitate intelligent behavior in complex and changing environments.
These mechanisms include those Artificial Intelligence paradigms that exhibit an
ability to learn or adapt to new situations, to generalize, abstract, discover
and associate. Usually the following paradigms are considered as part of
Computational Intelligence: artificial neural networks, evolutionary
computation, swarm intelligence, artificial immune systems, and fuzzy systems.
Individual techniques from these Computational Intelligence paradigms, as well
as hybrids of these paradigms, have been applied successfully to solve
real-world problems,

Aim of the Workshop
The rapid growth of Computational Intelligence paradigms is offering a variety
of new techniques for modeling of nonlinear systems in the broad sense. These
topics have been investigated from different points of view including
statistics, identification and control theory, approximation theory, signal
processing, nonlinear dynamics, information theory, physics and optimization
theory among others. The aim of this workshop is to serve as an
interdisciplinary forum for bringing together specialists which use
Computational Intelligence techniques to deal with modeling and prediction
problems. Issues related to the theory of Computational Intelligence techniques
for modeling and prediction, as well as real-life applications will be addressed
to this workshop.

Topics of Interest
Therefore, the Workshop on "Computational Intelligence for Modeling and
Prediction" welcome paper submissions introducing and implementing Computational
Intelligent techniques to address various modeling and prediction applications.
This workshop will provide a medium for the exchange of ideas between
theoreticians and practitioners to address the important issues in computational
intelligence for modeling and prediction. Topics of interest include, but are
not limited to, the use of techniques like:
. Artificial Neural Networks (Supervised, Unsupervised, Reinforcement),
. Evolutionary Algorithms (Genetic Algorithms, Genetic Programming, Gene
  Expression Programming, Evolutionary Programming, Evolution Strategies,
  Differential Evolution, Cultural Evolution, Co-evolution, etc.),
. Swarm Intelligence (Particle Swarm Optimization, Ant Colony Optimization),
. Artificial Immune System,
. Fuzzy Logic systems,
. Hybrid Intelligent Systems, for Modeling, and Prediction.

CALL FOR PAPERS – Special Issue
Local Search Algorithms for Real-World Scheduling and Planning Applications
Deadline for paper submission: October 15, 2010
Expected publication date: June 2011

AIM & SCOPE
Scheduling and planning problems are ubiquitous in many real-world settings.
These problems transpire in a large variety of forms, and have enormous
socio-economic impact. For many years, significant work has been devoted to
automating scheduling and planning processes using different kinds of methods.
This special issue focuses specifically on the use of local search algorithms
for real-world scheduling and planning by soliciting original scientific
contributions in the form of (1) experimental research based on real-world data
and (2) industrial case studies. Please note that studies based solely on random
data or old benchmark sets from the literature will not be considered.

The topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to, methodological
developments aimed at adapting some simple local search based metaheuristics
(e.g. Greedy Randomised Adaptive Search and Variable Neighborhood Search) and/or
more advanced ones (e.g. Simulated Annealing, Tabu Search, Evolutionary
Algorithms, Ant Systems and Particle Swarm Algorithms) to various
industrial/real-world problems; experimental studies on the roles and behaviours
of local search within an evolutionary framework(e.g. Memetic Algorithms) using
real-world data; software implementations for scheduling and planning; as well
as other relevant real-life applications.

We encourage submissions from both academics and practitioners. Two types of
papers are welcome: (1) regular papers reporting new research or applications
and (2) letters or research notes discussing new developments from the industry.

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE
Full papers can be submitted to: http://ees.elsevier.com/eaai (all manuscripts
should follow the submission guidelines available at the web site)

During the submission process, please select special issue on ‘LS Scheduling &
Planning’ as paper category.

Please submit papers on or before October 15, 2010. All submissions will be
peer-reviewed following the review process of EAAI.

(Prospective authors are encouraged to indicate their interests any time before
 the submission deadline)

The special issue is planned to be published in June 2011.
