The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)

The International Conference on Computational Intelligence (CI 2006), sponsored by IASTED, will be a major forum for international researchers and professionals to present their latest research, results, and ideas in all areas of computational intelligence. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

CI 2006 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

Web Technologies, Applications, and Services (WTAS 2006)
Education and Technology (ICET 2006)

At the foothills of Alberta’s majestic Rocky Mountains, Calgary stands as a major urban centre and is home to nearly one million people. Calgary is most well known for the “Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth” – the Calgary Stampede, a world-class rodeo that draws more than a million people each summer. As a young and vibrant city, Calgary provides activities for a variety of tastes. Visitors can take a trip up the Calgary Tower to get the best view of the City and landscape, visit Canada Olympic Park, the crown jewel of the 1988 Winter Olympics, or learn about local history at the Glenbow Museum, Fort Calgary, and Heritage Park. Calgary is also the gateway to the Rocky Mountains and Banff National Park, making a variety of outdoor activities such as skiing, snowboarding, and hiking just a short drive away.
