The fields of computational intelligence and natural computing seek to apply approaches inspired by natural processes for the solution of problems that are resistant to traditional methods. Both of these fields have become broad, with contributions from researchers in mathematics, physics, computer science, linguistics, neuroscience, biology, psychology, cognitive science and various engineering disciplines. When disparate disciplines pursue similar research agendas, it is often the case that too little cross fertilization of ideas occur.

Thus, the International Conference on Computational Intelligence and Natural Computation, 2003 (CINC 2003) seeks to foster the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas leading to significant advances in computational intelligence. In conjunction with the Joint Conference on Information Sciences, 2003 (JCIS 2003), the conference provides a truly unique forum for presentation and collaboration across disciplines. The organizers seek high-quality original papers that contribute to this goal. All topics relating to computational intelligence and natural computation are welcome and new, unusual and hybrid approaches are particularly encouraged. Both theoretical (new algorithms, analyses, etc.) and applied (implementations, applications, etc.) papers are solicited. Areas from which papers are sought include but are not limited to:

Ant Colony Optimization
Artificial Immune Systems
Artificial Life
Associative Memory
Biological Computing
Cognitive Science
Computational Intelligence
Data Mining
DNA Computing
Evolutionary Computation
Feature Extraction
Intelligent Control
Intelligent Agents
Knowledge Discovery
Learning and Memory
Machine Learning
Neurofuzzy Systems
Neural Networks
Particle Swarm Optimization
Pattern Recognition
Probabilistic Reasoning
Reinforcement Learning
Support Vector Machines
Swarm Intelligence


All accepted papers will be included in a high-quality, bound conference proceedings published by the Association for Intelligent Machinery.


Authors are encouraged to submit extended versions of their papers to the journal Information Sciences (Elsevier), subject to further review. In addition, it is anticipated that one or more special issues of Information Sciences, targeted specifically for topics covered by this conference, will be published to include extended versions of the best papers appearing in CINC’03.
