Subject: 2017 Virtual Creatures Competition -- Deadline Extension

Hi all,

The submission deadline for this year's Virtual Creatures Competition
has been extended to June 20th.  Please find the details below, and we
look forward to seeing your videos!

On behalf of Joel Lehman, Sebastian Risi and myself, I'm pleased to
invite you to submit your videos of evolved virtual creatures to the
fourth annual Virtual Creatures Competition, in conjunction with the
Genetic and Evolutionary Computation Conference in Berlin (conference
attendance not required for competition participation).

The contest's purpose is to highlight progress in virtual creatures
research and showcase evolutionary computation's ability to craft
interesting well-adapted creatures with evolved morphologies and/or
controllers.  This year we have expanded the entry requirements to
include both evolved morphologies and controllers in embodied agents,
and we invite the entire field of evolutionary robotics to submit
video entries showcasing your work.

Details can be found at: https://virtualcreatures.github.io/vc2017/submit/

particular focus will be put on methodology. The conference aims at
attracting contributions to nature-inspired models of computation,
synthesizing nature by means of computation, nature-inspired
materials, and information processing in nature.

Subject: CFP - Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (IF:
1.32) - Special Issue on Parallel/Distributed Computing and
Optimization

The Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing (IF: 1.32)
https://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-parallel-and-distributed-computing/call-for-papers

Special Issue on Parallel/Distributed Computing and Optimization

In the last years, we have experienced a change in computing towards
parallelism. The physical limits of integrated circuits being reached,
computing performance now keep Moore’s law thanks to the replication
of components. The default computer is nowadays a parallel machine. In
this scenario, parallelism is a must in any modern software in order
to make an effective use of the available resources.

The purpose of this special issue is to collect the main recent trends
and designs in parallel and distributed computing for solving hard
optimization problems.

Topics of interests include:
• Integer programming, linear programming, nonlinear programming;
• Global optimization, combinatorial optimization, multi-objective
optimization, dynamic optimization;
• Exact methods, heuristics, metaheuristics, nature inspired
algorithms, machine learning;
• Cooperative methods;
• Hybrid methods;
• Multi-core, many-core, GPGPU, cluster, Grid, and Cloud computing platforms;
• Parallel sparse matrix computations, graph algorithms, load balancing;
• Peer to peer computing and optimization problems;
• Theoretical studies on parallel and distributed computing
• Real world applications

All high quality submitted papers related to the listed topics will be
considered for publication in this special issue, provided they are
recommended for publication after the review process. All manuscripts
submission and review will be handled by Elsevier Editorial System
http://ees.elsevier.com/jpdc. Please, make sure to choose PDCO2017 as
article type. All papers should be prepared according to JPDC Guide
for Authors. Manuscripts should be no longer than 35 double-spaced
pages without the title page, abstract, or references.
