|The 8th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Intelligence and Computing|
Call for Papers
December 12-14, 2009, Chengdu, China
Sponsored by IEEE CS TCSC and IEEE CIS TFUIC & TFATC
Over the last fifty years, computational intelligence has evolved from logic-based artificial intelligence, nature-inspired soft computing, social-oriented agent technology to cyber-physical integrated ubiquitous intelligence towards Pervasive Intelligence (PI). The International Conference on Pervasive Intelligence and Computing is intended to cover all kinds of these intelligent paradigms as well as their applications in various pervasive computing. PICom-09 is the next event, in a series of highly successful International Conferences on Pervasive Intelligence and Computing (PICom), previously held as PCC-03 (Las Vegas, USA, June 2003), PCC-04 (Las Vegas, USA, June 2004), PSC-05 (Las Vegas, USA, June 2005), PCAC-06 (Vienna, Austria, April 2006), PCAC-07 (Niagara Falls, Canada, May 2007), IPC-07 (Jeju, Korea, December 2007), IPC-08 (Sydney, Australia, December 2008).
Topics are divided into 8 tracks, and include but are not limited to the following:
T1. Artificial Intelligence & Knowledge Computing
AI models & theories, ontology, machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, robots, game theory, expert system, knowledge discovery and management, reasoning,learning rule, distributed AI, tools, applications, etc.
T2. Nature-inspired Intelligence & Soft Computing
