CII 2013

2013 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Industry

Computational Intelligence (CI) techniques have been widely and successfully applied to solve a variety of real-world problems in industry and defense. Nevertheless, several practical reasons do exist that prevent engineers from adopting most advanced CI techniques in their daily work. The main motivation of this symposium is to promote and strengthen the connections between academia, industry and government agencies through providing easily comprehensible tutorials, presenting successful application examples in industry and brain-storming discussions on how to make CI techniques to accessible to engineering and practitioners.


Topics of the symposium include, but are not limited to:

  • Industry-related research and development using CI techniques 
    • Application of CI techniques for solving complex real-world problems in industry 
    • Results from industry-financed CI research projects
    • Results from industry-led or industry-participated projects financed by government agencies and / or industry
  • Technology transfer issues
  • Communication between industry, academia and government
  • Large CI research groups in industry
    • Guidelines and research opportunities at NSF and other government agencies
    • Large application-oriented CI research groups at academia
    • IEEE CIS supported activities that promote CI applications, including establishing CI related MSc program and summer schools
  • Software and methodologies that enhance the accessibility of engineers to CI techniques
    • User-friendly software for application CI techniques
    • Training programs on CI related techniques
    • CI models lifecycle support: How do you support deployed CI models over time to prevent obsolescence? How do we enable others (maybe IT technicians) to do it?
