Computational Intelligence and Smart Cities

Cities' constant evolution has been driven human beings footsteps. Allied to the advancement of machines, cities are evolving into a new paradigm, being called Smart Cities. This evolution, closely related to devices equipped with high-performance computational skills, is happening in urban and rural areas. Besides promoting a decentralization of the current system, the new cities open doors for different autonomous agents to optimize their own interests. In this context, combinatorial optimization plays a fundamental role for more precise, efficient and balanced decision making. In addition, interaction with citizens is not overlooked, new tools contribute to society by promoting a more participatory economy and development. This call invites researchers to submit papers related to the above-described topics. Check the conference website for more information.

Computational Intelligence and Biomathematics

Biomathematics can be seen as a broad scientific area including areas such as biomechanics/systemic biology and systems biology. On the other hand, computational intelligence can be seen as a broad scientific area including artificial neural networks and evolutionary computing. On this workshop, we shall see what is biomathematics and its ramifications, e.g. systems biology, and how they can be supported by methodologies from computational intelligence, e.g. in parameters estimations and patterns search (e.g., in gene expression).
