2014 IEEE Swarm Intelligence Symposium

The 2014 IEEE Swarm Intelligence Symposium (SIS 2014) will be held in Orlando, Florida, December 09 - 12, 2014. It will be a part of the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence 2014, which consists of over 20 symposia. The theme of the SIS 2014 is to provide a platform for researchers, academicians, students, engineers, and government officers from all over the world to share and exchange information in the swarm intelligence research areas ranging from algorithm development to real-world applications. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work related to swarm intelligence, including research, theory, development, and applications.


Topics covered by the SIS 2014 include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Ant Colony Optimization
  • Artificial Immune System
  • Artificial Life
  • Bacterial Foraging Optimization
  • Bees Algorithm
  • Bio-inspired Computation
