.......... Held along with ACM GECCO 2018 Conference ..........

      July 13, 14, and 19 (plus activities in July 15-19)

SIGEVO is a special interest group of ACM always looking for new ways
to enlarge the community of researchers working in different
biologically inspired metaheuristics. The second SigEvo Summer School
(S3), held in conjunction with GECCO 2018 in Kyoto, is looking for
students and mentors.

The core of the second S3 will take place in Osaka in the days
previous to the conference, and will continue in daily interactions
during the conference proper in Kyoto, finishing in the same day of
the conference later in the afternoon. That way, students will be able
to enjoy and learn during the conference proper at the same time they
meet researchers and advance in their learning tasks. GECCO tutorials,
workshops, and papers will be an integral part of the S3.

Students are expected to:

  - Attend the two days before the conference, as well as the session
    after the conference, is finished, on the same day.

  - Have a valid registration to GECCO itself, plus a small fee to
    participate in the school.

  - Cooperatively work on an assignment and follow the standards of
    proper social and research behavior.

Students of the S3 will be eligible for travel, register and lodging
grants of GECCO.

See the special section on S3 that will appear soon on the web page of
GECCO: http://gecco-2018.sigevo.org/index.html/Summer+School

If you are interested in being a mentor for the second S3, please send
your information (name, affiliation, and contact information) to JJ
Merelo (jmerelo at ugr.es <mailto:jmerelo at ugr.es>).

GECCO is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery Special
Interest Group for Genetic and Evolutionary Computation (ACM SIGEVO).
