Call for Nominations: organisational committee for IWLCS 2011/2012

Another interesting and stimulating International Workshop on Learning Classifier Systems (IWLCS) has just passed, and with it ends the term of the current IWLCS organisational committee. Thus, it is election time, and nominations to become a member of the new IWLCS organisational committee will be accepted until Friday, July 23rd.

As in the last years, the role of the committee, consisting of 3 members of the LCS & GBML research community, is to

  • organise the International Workshop on Learning Classifier Systems (IWLCS) in 2011 and 2012, including communication with the GECCO organisational committee, sending out CFPs and handling the review process of the workshop submissions, and managing its schedule during the workshop itself, and to
  • organise the postproceedings volume of IWLCS 2010/2011, including communication with the publisher, sending out the CFPs and handling the review process.

The intention is that all of the workshop organisers attend GECCO.

No previous workshop organisation experience is required to be nominated, as we will ensure that at least one of the members of the new organisational committee has been on the committee before. Thus, we particularly encourage new members of the community to nominate themselves, in order to gain organisation experience and to increase their visibility within the community.

In order to get nominated, please send an e-mail to

Deadline for nominations: Friday, July 23rd

Voting ends: Friday, July 30th
