The ECAL 2013 Organising Committee invites proposals for Tutorials and  
Workshops to be held in conjunction with ECAL 2013 in Taormina, Italy,  
September 2-6, 2013.

The internal organization of the satellite workshops and tutorials  
(website, paper submission, invited talks, proceedings, all deadlines  
except registration) is entirely left up to their respective  
organizers. ECAL provides the onsite logistics (seminar rooms,  
projectors, coffee breaks, and lunches) and links from the main  
conference website. All other organizational issues - including  
separate review process and proceedings publication, if any - are  
taken care of by the workshop chairs. Therefore, any workshop-specific  
requests from participants should be exclusively addressed to them,  
not to the ECAL committee.


Submission Workshop/Tutorial proposal:         January 31, 2013
Notification of Acceptance Workshop/Tutorial:  February 15, 2013

Workshops Information and/or submission proposal:   
workshops.ecal2013 at dmi.unict.it
Tutorials Information and/or submission proposal:   
tutorials.ecal2013 at dmi.unict.it


The ECAL 2013 workshops are intended to be forums to present and  
discuss new approaches, visions, or critical reflections within a  
research area. They provide an excellent opportunity to meet people  
with similar interests, to be exposed to cutting-edge research and to  
exchange ideas in an informal setting. The organizers of an accepted  
workshop are responsible for its coordination and its publicity (e.g.,  
for sending out call for papers/abstracts), for collecting and  
reviewing the papers/abstracts, and for maintaining a webpage  
providing a list of accepted talks. The workshops can be half day or a  
full day long. The format can be decided by the organizers who are  
encouraged to plan interactive sessions.


ECAL 2013 tutorials will be presented by domain experts to cover  
current topics relevant to artificial life researchers and  
practitioners.  Each tutorial will be 3 hours long, then we encourage  
to include into the tutorial also demos and interactive activities.  
Accepted tutorial's slide sets will be published on ECAL 2013 website.


Each tutorial/workshop proposal should include:

1) title of the workshop/tutorial
2) name(s) and affiliation(s) of the organizer(s)/inspector(s), with  
relative contact details
3) a short CV of the organizer(s)/instructor(s)
4) a brief description (half-page) of the workshop/tutorial topics

Only for workshops:
5) potential target participants and audience
6) roughly approximated number of participants
7) rough estimate of the number of talks

All workshop proposals must be sent to: workshops.ecal2013 at dmi.unict.it

All tutorial proposals must be sent to: tutorials.ecal2013 at dmi.unict.it

Looking forward to your submissions.

Best wishes,
   Pietro Lio', Orazio Miglino, Giuseppe Nicosia, Stefano Nolfi, and  
Mario Pavone.
