The 2008 Special Session on Bio-Inspired Business Intelligence (BI-BI 2008)
In Conjunct with ICNC-FSKD 2008, Jinan, Shandong, China
Session Co-Chairs: Dr. Lean Yu, Dr. Kaijian He, Prof. K.K. Lai
With the increase of global competition, business intelligence becomes more important for the firms. It provides the ability to manage growing volumes of complex data and enables firms to evaluate the data in order to make well informed business decisions. Business intelligence can be regarded as elevating data to information and then to knowledge. In business intelligence applications, bio-inspired computational techniques are the key components and provide powerful supports. The special session on Bio-Inspired Business Intelligence focuses on bio-inspired computational techniques such as artificial neural networks and evolutionary algorithms and business intelligence applications, such as portfolio optimization, financial condition diagnosis and credit fraud detection.
This special session intends to provide a premier and open forum for the dissemination of innovative bio-inspired computational techniques and original business intelligence applications. Perspective authors are encouraged to submit papers on any aspect of innovative bio-inspired computing techniques and their business applications, but not limited to the following topics:
Techniques Applications
 Artificial Neural Networks
 Evolutionary Algorithms
 DNA and Cellular Computing
 Swarm Intelligence
 Artificial Immune Systems
 Reinforcement Learning
 Support Vector Machines
 Rough Sets
 Fuzzy Logic
 Hybrid AI System  Portfolio Selection and Optimization
 Risk Assessment and Analysis
 Foreign Exchange Rate Forecasting
 Options Pricing and Valuation
 Financial Diagnosis
