****************************************************************
Call for Competition Proposals
****************************************************************
International Joint Conference on Neural Networks - IJCNN 2011
San Jose, California
July 31 - August 5, 2011
****************************************************************

The International Joint Conference on Neural Networks is soliciting competition proposals. 

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Pattern recognition (speech, handwriting, images, vision, video)
- Time series prediction (forecasting, causality in time series)
- Data mining (marketing, social networks, credit rating)
- Text processing (ranking, translation)
- Bioinformatics (diagnosis, prognosis, drug discovery)

Competitions involving demonstrations taking place at the conference are particularly encouraged.
 
Up to 4 competitions will be selected. Each competition will receive two conference+workshop 
free registrations (one for the organizer and one as prize or both as prizes), but may also 
plan to provide additional prizes. The competition participants may submit papers to the 
IJCNN 2011 conference. All accepted papers will have a poster in a special session at the 
main conference and the best papers will have oral presentations in a special IJCNN 2011 
competition workshop. Registering for the conference is a condition for being published 
in the conference proceedings, but not for entering the competition or participating in the workshop.

A proposal should include a short paragraph on each of the following items:

 Description of the problem addressed, with general background information on the application domain. 

 Description of the available data, guarantee of availability, guarantee of confidentiality of the 
  "ground truth", and size.

 Description of the competition tasks, their scientific and technical merit and their practical 
  significance.

 Description of the evaluation procedures and established baselines (provide evidence that 
  non-trivial performance can be achieved, and an estimate of what constitutes a significant 
  difference in performance).

 List of the available resources (team member availability, computers, support staff, 
  other equipment, sponsors).

 Schedule. The competition should start no later than beginning of December 2010 to allow the 
  participants to submit papers to the conference (deadline end of January) and last 
  approximately 6 to 8 weeks. The results should preferably be known at review time and definitely 
  before the deadline for camera ready submission (May 2011). Names, affiliations, postal addresses, 
  phone numbers, and short biographies of the organizers.

 Whether the competition is new or has been held before.

 What prizes will be awarded to the winning teams. 


A good competition task is one that is practically useful, scientifically or technically challenging, 
can be done without extensive application domain knowledge, and can be evaluated objectively. 
Tips for preparing good proposals are available at:
