Extended deadline: Symposium on Evolving Intelligent systems, EIS'10


Symposium on Evolving Intelligent systems, EIS'10 in Leicester, UK, 29 March- 1 April  2010 http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/staff/angelov/EIS10_AISB10.html
deadline 31st January 2010
International Symposium on Evolving Intelligent Systems (EIS10)

in the framework of the The 2010 Annual Convention of the

Society for Study of Artificial Intelligence and Simulation of Behaviour (AISB10)


29th March  1st April, 2010

De Montfort University, Leicester, UK


The newly established concept of evolving intelligent systems (eIS) is a result of the synergy between conventional systems, neural networks and fuzzy systems as structures for information representation and real time methods for machine learning. This emerging area targets non-stationary processes by developing novel on-line learning methods and computationally efficient algorithms for real-time applications. One of the important research challenges today is to develop methodologies, concepts, algorithms and techniques towards the design of intelligent systems with a higher level of flexibility and autonomy, so that the systems can evolve their structure and knowledge of the environment and ultimately  evolve their intelligence. To address the problems of modelling, control, prediction, classification and data processing in a dynamically changing and evolving environment, a system must be able to fully adapt its structure and adjust its parameters, rather than use a pre-trained and a fixed structure. That is, the system must be able to evolve, to self-develop, to self-organize, to self-evaluate and to self-improve. Wireless sensor networks, assisted ambient intelligence, embedded soft computing diagnostics and prognostics algorithms, intelligent agents, smart evolving sensors; autonomous robotic systems etc. are some of the natural implementation areas of eIS as a realistic and practical tool for design of real time intelligent systems. 
EIS10 continues the tradition set by the previous forums (EFS06, GEFS08, and ESDIS09) dedicated to serving the needs of academics and practitioners in computational intelligence focusing on evolving and self-adaptive systems. It will also be supported and organised by the Adaptive Fuzzy Systems Task Force, FSTC, CIS, IEEE. The objective of EIS10 is to facilitate the promotion of novel problems, research, results and future directions in the emerging area of eIS. EIS10 will provide an opportunity to meet old friends, making new contacts and exchange ideas as well as to establish links with other related areas in the AISB10 grand event.
