The 3rd International Conference on Computational Collective Intelligence –
Technologies and Applications (ICCCI 2011)

21-23 September 2011, Gdynia, Poland


Proceedings: Lecture Notes in Computer Science/Artificial Intelligence (LNCS/AI) by


ICCCI 2011 is an international scientific conference for research in the field of
Computational Collective Intelligence (CCI), to be held on 21-23 September, 2011 in
Gdynia city, Poland.

Computational Collective Intelligence is most often understood as an AI sub-field
dealing with soft computing methods which enable making group decisions or
processing knowledge among autonomous units acting in distributed environments.
Web-based systems, social networks and multi-agent systems very often need these
tools for working out consistent knowledge states, resolving conflicts and making

The aim of this conference is to provide an internationally respected forum for
scientific research in the computer-based methods of collective intelligence and
their applications in (but not limited to) such fields as semantic web, social
networks and multi-agent systems.

ICCCI 2011 is organized by Gdynia Maritime University and Wroclaw University of
Technology in Poland. Gdynia Maritime University in which it will take place is
located in the port city Gdynia known for its picturesque seashore with marinas,
promenades and yacht clubs. However there is more to enjoy nearby, as Gdynia is a
part of the Tricity, which also includes a thousand-year-old Gdańsk, Poland’s
cultural gem, and Sopot, a health-resort with its beautiful Landscape Park and
splendid sandy beaches. The many attractions of the area are easily reached via
Gdansk Lech Walesa International Airport, and all three cities are linked by
frequent and comfortable commuter lines. Gdynia Maritime University is a specialized
technical university and the largest Polish and European Centre for higher maritime
education. The University is actively involved in numerous national and European
research projects.


Methodological, theoretical and practical aspects of computational collective
intelligence such as group decision making, collective action coordination,
knowledge integration, understood as the form of intelligence that emerges from the
collaboration and competition of many individuals (artificial and/or natural).The
application of multiple computational intelligence technologies such as fuzzy
systems, evolutionary computation, neural systems, consensus theory, etc., to
support human and other collective intelligence and creation of new forms of CCI in
natural and/or artificial systems. Three subfields of application of computational
intelligence technologies to support various forms of collective intelligence are of
special attention but are not the only ones: semantic web (as an advanced tool
increasing collective intelligence), social network analysis (as the field targeted
to the emergence of new forms of CCI), and multiagent systems (as a computational
and modeling paradigm especially tailored to capture the nature of CCI emergence in
populations of autonomous individuals).

Contribution papers from prospective authors with interest to the related topics are
invited to submit to ICCCI 2011 for oral or poster presentations. All submissions
should follow the LNCS/LNAI (Springer) format with titles, author names,
affiliation, email addresses, and up to 150-words abstract. The manuscript should be
written in English and should not exceed 10 pages. The submissions should present
the results of original research or innovative practical applications relevant to
topics. Practical experiences with state-of-the-art in CCI methodologies are also
acceptable to reflect lessons of unique value for the conference attendees. All
papers must provide at most five key words including one or more of the topics as
listed above. All papers will be reviewed by peers.


Special sessions are to be held in conjunction with the ICCCI 2011 conference. They
are aimed to provide opportunities for researchers, professionals and students to
meet and discuss selected topics in the ICCCI 2011 conference scope.

If you are interested in proposing and organizing session, please sent the proposal
to ICCCI 2011 before 15 February 2011.

Special session proposals should include:
- Title of the special session
- The names, addresses and emails of the special session organizers
- A brief description of the special session goals and focus
- A proposition of some expert names with affiliations in the domain of interest
- The expected number of papers and attendees and planned length of the special session


The conference proceedings will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer
Science/Artificial Intelligence series by Springer-Verlag and indexed by EI,
ISI(CPCI-S), Scopus, DBLP, ACM Digital Library. Referees will be asked to nominate
papers for a Best Paper award to be announced at the conference. All personally
presented papers, but particularly those nominated for the Best Paper competition
will be automatically considered for publication in the extended versions in several
special issues for ISI, SCI journals.
