*Symposium Description* 
The field of computational intelligence is a broad one, encompassing nature-inspired computation, 
machine learning, intelligent agents, robotics, soft computing and data mining. These research 
areas have led to valuable insights into human cognition and a vast array of novel methods for 
optimising systems, mining large scale data and improving human-computer interaction across a 
large number of application areas. This symposium is designed to provide a forum for researchers 
in computational AI to exchange ideas and to present their theoretical and applied work to a group 
of like-minded individuals. 

*Call for Papers* 
Authors are invited to submit contributions based on any novel research in computational 
intelligence of a theoretical or applied nature. The indicative scope of computational 
intelligence will include (but is not limited to) the following areas: 

* Nature-Inspired Computation 
* Machine Learning 
* Swarm Intelligence 
* Expert Systems 
* Intelligent Agents 
* Robotics 
* Soft Computing 
* Data Mining 

*Paper Length* 
Finalised papers should be no longer than 8 pages in the format specified below. 

Please submit extended abstracts (between 1 and 2 pages) in Microsoft Word format. 
Please submit papers by e-mailing a PDF copy of your paper along with your contact details to 
the symposium chair.  

*Important Dates* 
Submission deadline:3rd January 2014 
Author Notification:3rd February 2014 
Camera Ready Copy: 24th February 2014 

*Convention Information*
The Convention will consist mainly of a number of collocated Symposia on specific research areas, 
interspersed with Convention-wide refreshment breaks, social events and invited Plenary Talks. All 
papers other than the invited Plenaries will be given within Symposia. 

There will be a separate proceedings for each symposium, produced before the Convention. 
Each delegate at the Convention will receive, on arrival, a memory stick containing the 
proceedings of all symposia.
