NICSO 2008 is the third edition of the International Workshop
on  Nature Inspired  Cooperative Strategies for Optimization.
Its  aims  are
(1) to foster a deeper understanding of "cooperativity" in
     computational optimisation systems, and
(2) to encourage a vigorous exchange of ideas about emerging
     research areas in cooperative problem solving strategies.

The accepted papers will be published in the Springer book
series on Studies in Computational Intelligence.

The authors of the  best accepted  papers will be invited to revise
and expand their  contributions for  publication in a special issue
in the Memetic Computing Journal (Springer) shortly after the event.


IMPORTANT DATES:
     ? Deadline for Submission:    September, 1
     ? Notification of Acceptance: September, 30
     ? Deadline for Camera-ready:  October, 20

All submissions (only pdf file) must be sent at nicso2008@gci.org.es.
The length of each contribution will not exceed 12 pages.

Produce a camera ready copy using NICSO2008 latex style found at
http://www.gci.org.es/nicso2008.

Each contribution must providing original results, insights
and experimental innovations.

All submitted papers will be blind reviewed and acceptance will be
based on originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity.
