Submit a paper to the CEC special session in CIG, or to TCIAIG

Another reminder: please consider submitting a paper to the CEC 2009 special session on Computational Intelligence and Games, which I am co-organizing together with Pier Luca Lanzi and Daniele Loiacono.

If you're looking to submit your paper to a journal rather than a conference, you might be interested in IEEE Transactions on Computational Intelligence and AI in Games, a new high quality journal that is starting next year (but already accepts submissions) and for which I am an associate editor. Quite a mouthful of a name, but it's bound to be the most important publication outlet for us researchers working in applying CI methods to games.

CIG 2008 Car racing competition

Just a reminder: please consider submitting to the TORCS-based car racing competition, that I am again organizing together with Daniele Loiacono and Pier Luca Lanzi. The goal is to use your favorite learning algorithm (evolution, td-learning, policy gradients, PSO etc.) and function representation (neural nets, expression trees, rulesets etc.) to develop the best controller for a racing car. Your car needs to win over all the over submitted controllers in a number of races.
