Special Track on the Computational Intelligence and Signal & Image Analysis (CISIA)


   It will be a forum for engineers, researchers and practitioners throughout the world to share technical ideas and experiences relating to implementation and application of Computational Intelligence to Image Processing, Systems Biology and Biomedical Engineering. Many conferences have been dedicated to Evolutionary Computing (CEC, GECCO, PPSN, etc), Image Analysis (ICIAR, ICIAP, ICASSP, IJCAI, etc) and Systems Biology & Biomedicine (ICSB, RECOMB, BME, etc), but they don’t offer much on the blending of Computational Logic, Boolean Satisfiability and Soft Computing tools to address practical applications of Image Analysis, biocomputing, cognitive science, quantum informatics, information security and Bio Systems Modeling and Simulations. In particular, we encourage a multidisciplinary / convergent approach based on the following broadly based branches of computer science for the application areas highlighted above:


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:


·         Computational Intelligence, Neuroscience, Intelligent Systems and Agent

·         Collective Computing

·         Computational Logic

·         Boolean Satisfiability (SAT) including pseudo-boolean satisfiability, satisfiability modulo theory, answer set
programming, solvers,
combinatorial concepts and optimization techniques for key applications in Systems Biology, Image Processing, Evolutionary Computation, DNA Computing, Cognitive Informatics, Semantic Web, Cryptography

·         Reasoning, Inference, Heuristic Search

·         Knowledge Representation

·         Advances in Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing

·         Logic-based Artificial Intelligence

·         Biomedical Signal & Image Processing

·         Image processing (e.g. satellite imagery), video sequence analysis (e.g. surveillance

·         Signal & Image Analysis/Pattern Recognition

·         Image Segmentation and Classification

·         Computational Biology, Biomedicine, Bioinformatics, Biometrics

·         Fuzzy logic and Rough set applications               

·         Machine Learning, Predictive models

·         Neural Networks

·         Artificial Immune Systems

·         Selective Self-Organization                   

·         Simulation of Swarm Intelligence



Original paper from the above mentioned areas will be considered. This includes three categories of submissions:

1)       Original and unpublished research

2)       Reports of innovative artificial intelligence applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry.

3)       Reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains.

Each category of submissions will be reviewed by peer groups appropriate to that category.   Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the symposium proceedings. Expanded version of best-selected paper from all categories will be considered for publication in the ACM/SIGAPP quarterly Applied Computing Review or one of the other participating SIGs' publications. Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:


1)        Submissions will be in electronic format, via the website site

2)        The author(s) name(s) and address (es) must not appear  in  the body of  the paper, and self-reference should be in the third person. Acknowledgements’ and self-references should be stated to be added later. This is to facilitate blind review.

3)        Authors are allowed up to 8 pages. Final camera ready should not exceed 5 pages; there is a charge of 80USD per extra page. A few Keywords should be provided.

4)        Deadlines will be strictly enforced.

5)        NOTE: Papers cannot be sent to more than one track.




Some selected papers are invited for publication in a special issue of International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools.
