November 20-22, 2006
San Francisco, California, USA

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:

Circuits, Signals, and Systems (CSS 2006)

The gold rush in 1848 forever transformed San Francisco from a quiet Spanish village to a booming metropolis. Its history is a showcase of cultural, artistic, and architectural achievements. No postcard can do justice to the spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset, or the charm of riding the city’s famous cable cars. San Francisco’s number one attraction is Pier 39, a festival marketplace at Fisherman’s Wharf with gorgeous views of the bay and lots of fun attractions. From there, take a ferry to Alcatraz or check out the California sea lions sunning themselves on the nearby floating docks. There are many inland delights as well. Check out the Victorian style homes of the early 20th Century, famously known as the Painted Ladies. Experience the energetic bustle of North America’s most vibrant and populous Chinatown. Take a walking tour through the neighborhood of North Beach with its poetry and jazz cafes, fine art stores, delis, and museums, and discover the spirit of the Beat movement that transformed American poetry in the 1950’s. Do-it-yourself walking tours of Union Square and Golden Gate Park are also sure to impress. Take the family along for the fun of the California Academy of Sciences or enjoy a more sophisticated evening of wine tasting at a world-renowned vineyard. San Francisco is a city of endless possibility.
