The First IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computational Intelligence (FOCI'07)

1-5 April 2007, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

Sponsored by IEEE Computational Intelligence Society



SCOPES and TOPICS

The First IEEE Symposium on Foundations of Computational Intelligence (IEEE FOCI'07) will be held as part of the First IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE-SSCI'2007) to be held at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort & Spa in famous Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, on 1-5 April 2007. IEEE FOCI 2007 will focus on theoretical and practical foundations of computational intelligence, including but not limited to neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence and other machine learning methods.

In spite of numerous successful applications of computational intelligence techniques in business and industry, such successes (or the occasional lack thereof) are not always fully understood. There is an urgent need in more rigorous studies of the foundations of computational intelligence, so that new breakthroughs can be fostered. This symposium, IEEE FOCI'07, 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. The symposium will put equal emphasis on theoretical and practical work as long as it addresses the foundations of computational intelligence. The topics coverd by FOCI'07 include, but are not limited to:
