IEEE Symposium on Foundations of

Computational Intelligence


Orlando hosts the fifth IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2014). This international event brings together at one location several symposia running concurrently, each highlighting various aspects of computational intelligence, and will attract top researchers, practitioners, and students from around the world to discuss the latest advances in the field of computational intelligence.

Computational intelligence techniques have proven useful after numerous applications in real world problems. However, there is much work to be done in order to fully understand the theoretical foundations of such techniques. IEEE FOCI'14, provides an ideal forum for those who are interested in the fundamental issues of computational intelligence to exchange their ideas and present their latest findings.

IEEE FOCI'14 will focus on fundamental theoretical and practical foundations of computational intelligence, including but not limited to neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation, and other machine learning methods. The symposium will put equal emphasis on theoretical and practical work as long as it addresses the foundations of computational intelligence.

As usual in the previous SSCI editions, the proceedings will be included in the Conference Proceedings Citation Index.
