Special Session on

Computational Intelligence for Knowledge and Skills Transfer: Theories, Algorithms and Applications

http://www.wcci2016.org/spsessions.php


Synopsis:

Effective transfer of knowledge would have significant theoretical and practical values. For example, it could enable robots to rapidly gain skills and adapt to new surroundings with relatively low computational cost. However, the path to achieving this goal is obstructed by a number of difficulties related to: computational resource limitations, uncertainties of information acquisition, and omnipresence of ambient noise. This special session aims at the presentations of the latest research activities related to all facets of knowledge and skills transfer, particularly from perspective of computational intelligence and to applications for robots. The special session is open to contributions on any topic directly or indirectly related to computational intelligence in/for knowledge transfer and skill transfer, touching on at least one of the issues mentioned above. Submissions presenting empirical or mathematical results are especially welcomed; but conceptually rigorous and innovative contributions of any kind will be seriously considered, if relevant.

The topics of interests in the special session include, but are not limited to:

Important Dates:
Paper Submission: 15 Jan, 2016.
Paper acceptance notification: 15 Mar. 2016
Final paper submission deadline: 15 April, 2016

Paper Submission:
For papers submitted to this special sessions track, please click on the IEEE CEC 2016 paper submission link, and in the options of main research topic, please choose: "Computational Intelligence for Knowledge and Skills Transfer: Theories, Algorithms and Applications". You can find more information on the IEEE WCCI  2016 Submission Web Site . Special session papers are treated the same as regular conference papers.

LaTeX and MS-Word Templates are available HERE.

Publication:
The special session is soliciting high quality papers of original research and application papers that have not been published elsewhere and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the standard format and page limit of regular papers specified in the WCCI 2016 website. All papers will be rigorously reviewed by at least two reviewers.

This is a cross-disciplinary and CI applications Special Session.  Therefore, a submitted paper (if duly accepted and presented) will be published under one of the three conference proceedings (IEEE CEC, Fuzzy-IEEE, or IJCNN) that is most appropriate to the paper.  Such decision will be made by the Special Session Organizers in consultation with the Special Session Chair and one of the three Conference Chairs.
