The 2014 International Conference on Computational Science and Computational Intelligence (CSCI'14)
The CSCI'14 International Conference invites paper submissions from diverse communities, including researchers from: universities, corporations, government agencies, and standardization bodies. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Papers are sought that address solutions to problems in all areas of computational science and computational intelligence.
Computational Science (CS) is the study of addressing problems that are impossible to solve (or difficult to solve) without computers. CS can be considered to be the bridge between computer science and other sciences. The field is interdisciplinary by nature and includes the use of advanced computing capabilities to understand and solve complex problems. In short, CS is the science of using computers to do science.
Computational Intelligence (CI) is the study of computational methods in ways that exhibit intelligence. These methods adapt to changing environments and changing goals. There is a significant overlap between the fields of CI and Artificial Intelligence (AI). However, there is also a difference: AI techniques often involve top-to-bottom methods (i.e., methods to the solutions are imposed from the top) whereas CI techniques often involve bottom-up methods (i.e., solutions emerge from unstructured beginnings). An important part of CI includes a set of Nature-inspired computational approaches to address complex problems to which traditional methods are infeasible.
