**** Apologies if you receive multiple copies ****

Dear Colleague,

The 2005 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC'05), September
2nd-5th 2005 in Edinburgh, UK, will bring together researchers,
practitioners and students from around the world to present and discuss
the latest advances in both practice and theory in the field of
evolutionary computation.  The conference is sponsored and supported by
The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, The IEEE
Computational Intelligence Society, the Institute of Electrical
Engineers, and the Evolutionary Programming Society.

The CEC'05 Program Committee is now inviting proposals for tutorials to
be held on September 3rd 2005, in conjunction with the main conference.

Tutorials provide a means for (senior) researchers to present an
overview of a field related to evolutionary computation. A tutorial
should not be a technical presentation focusing on ones own work only.
It should preferably handle a relatively large chunk of knowledge on a
specific area, typically at an introductory level.  For example you can
have a look at the CEC'04 tutorials at
http://www.tomenglishproject.com/CEC2004_tutorials.html.  Tutorials are
typically 2 hours in duration.

The entire EC community is encouraged to submit proposals as well as
experts of related fields, such as for example evolutionary economics,
artificial life, or multi-agent systems.  Proposals for tutorials
should be one page in length, preferably in PDF, and should contain the
following information:

1. Title
2. Name and full contact information of the proposer(s)
3. A brief description (one or two paragraphs) of the topics
4. Any resource requirements, e.g. computers, equipment setup etc.
5. An optional label being either "novice" (e.g. Intro to GP) or
"advanced" (e.g. Recent advances in parallel GAs)
6. Biographical information on presenters (including previous tutorials

Proposals should be submitted to the tutorial chair: Alastair Channon,
a.d.channon at cs.bham.ac.uk

Tutorial proposals due: May 1st 2005
Notification of acceptance/rejection: June 1st 2005
