International Workshop on Computational Intelligence and its Applications
(CIA 2014)


Date: October 16-18, 2014

Location: Taipei, Taiwan

Conference Website: http://ftrai.org/infotech2014/index.php


n  About CIA

The 1st International Workshop on Computational Intelligence and its Applications will be held in conjunction with the 2014 International Conference on Advanced Information Technology and Services (InfoTech 2014).


n  Aims and Scope

This international workshop aims to discuss key issues and practices of Computational Intelligence. The characteristic of intelligence is usually attributed to humans but, recently, many products and systems are also regarded to be intelligent. The recent prevalence of smartphones is encouraging the research on intelligence and Apples Siri and IBMs Watson is accelerating the research on intelligence and knowledge implemented and constructed from big data. This workshop will provide a cross-disciplinary forum for researchers to share their research efforts and ideas on computational intelligence. In particular, we will discuss what the future of Artificial Intelligence might be in the light of the recent wave of Big Data, Semantic Web and Knowledge Acquisition technologies. By bringing together representatives of academia and industry, the workshop is also a means for identifying new research problems and disseminating results of the research and practice.


n  Topics of Interest

The aim of this session is to cover all aspects that relate to research and practical issues of computational intelligence and its applications. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

-       Knowledge Representation

-       Knowledge Extraction

-       Knowledge Management

-       Knowledge Learning

-       Data Mining

-       Text Mining

-       Web Intelligence

-       Business Intelligence

-       Technology/Competitive/Collective Intelligence

-       Information Analysis for Intelligence

-       Big Data Processing for Intelligence

-       Intelligent Computing

-       Intelligent Service Technology

-       Intelligence Service Design and Implementation

-       Scalable Reasoning

-       Context-Aware Reasoning and Representation

-       Ontology and Semantic Web for Intelligence

-       Linked (Open) Data Analysis for Intelligence

-       Entity Disambiguation on Large Scale Semantic Data

-       Visualizing and Providing Intelligence

-       Modeling and Simulation

-       Prescriptive Analytics



n  Submissions and Publications

All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings as one of Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering (LNEE) series published by Springer (indexed by EI and SCOPUS).  Authors should submit a paper with 6-8 pages in length including all figures, tables, and references. If you want to submit more than page limitation, you can add up to 2 extra pages with extra charges (USD 100 per page). Instructions for papers in the Springer's LNEE Note that the paper format of LNEE is the same as that of LNCS- Regular Paper: 6 pages (Max 2 extra pages are allowed at additional cost)


- Prepare your paper in the exact format as the sample paper for LNEE. Failure to do so may result in the exclusion of your paper from the proceedings. Please read the authors' instructions carefully before preparing your papers. 


- Springer accepts both Microsoft Word and LaTex format in the Lecture ote Series. However, FTRA does not accept the use of LaTex. Therefore, you should use the Microsoft Word instead of using LaTex (The paper will be excluded from the proceeding if you use LaTex). Springer provides the relevant templates and sample files for both PC (sv-lncs.dot) and Mac (sv-lncs) environments.
