CALL FOR PAPERS

The 16th Annual UK Workshop on Computational Intelligence, UKCI-2016

September 7-9, 2016, Lancaster, United Kingdom

http://wp.lancs.ac.uk/ukci2016/
###########################################################

The 16th Annual UK Workshop on Computational Intelligence, UKCI-2016 this year
is being hosted by Lancaster University. UKCI is the premier UK event for
presenting leading research on all aspects of Computational Intelligence. The
aim of this Workshop is to provide a forum for the academic community and
industry to share ideas about developing and using Computational Intelligence
(CI) techniques, the new trends and to exchange views and ideas.

CI is a rapidly expanding research field, attracting a large number of
scientists, engineers and practitioners working in areas such as fuzzy systems,
neural networks, evolutionary computation, evolving systems and machine
learning. A growing number of companies are employing CI techniques to improve
previous solutions and to deal with new problems. These include evolving systems
that allow high performance in spite of changes which are either external or
internal to the system, thereby increasing the re-usability of developed
systems. This also include smart, intelligent and autonomous systems,
self-learning, self-adapting, self-calibrating and self-tuning.

UKCI-2016 will take place in Lancaster House Hotel, located conveniently within
the campus of Lancaster University, few miles from the city centre including
Lancaster Castle. The city offers excellent transport links, with easy access to
the M6, railway station and ferry links. Beyond the array of activities within
the city, Lancaster is close to Britain's premier tourist area - Lake District,
and is home to theatres, museums, Ashton Memorial and Williamson park.
