Prospective competition organizers are invited to submit their proposals to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by November 15, 2013. Notifications of results will be given by the end of November. A common web-page for all accepted competitions will be provided under the domain www.ieee-wcci2014.org. In this page, there will be a link to the homepage of each competition, independently maintained by their organizers.
Each proposal should contain the following information.
1. Competition Outline
Please describe the competition outline, including
2. Competition Category
Please select the competition category from below. In case you have other requirements, please also elaborate them:
Category A: You plan also to organize an associated special session, whose proposal must be submitted separately to the special session chairs. In addition, you require that each team must submit at least one paper to the special session. Since competition results are usually announced at such special sessions, we will not allocate extra time slots, for all competitions of this category, in the conference program.
Category B: You plan also to organize an associated special session, whose proposal must be submitted separately to the special session chairs. However, submission of papers to the special session by competition participants is not mandatory. In this category, we will allocate some time slots as competition sessions in the conference program where competition results will be announced and oral presentations about submitted entries will be conducted.
Category C: You have no plan to organize an associated special session. In this category, competition sessions will be allocated in the conference program, where competition results will be announced and oral presentations about submitted entries will be conducted.
Note: For categories B and C, please also indicate whether or not conference participation is required for each entry.
We will try our best to arrange a winning certificate and some money prizes to the winner of each competition who attends WCCI 2014. However, this may depend on the number of competition participants who attend also the conference. We therefore welcome you to find your own sponsorship. Please elaborate your plan on this issue.
Look forward to receiving your proposal(s).
