CFP: IEEE Conference on Evolving and Adaptive Intelligent Systems (EAIS 2018) (Jan 20, 2018)


The 2018 IEEE Conference on Evolving and Adaptive Intelligent Systems (EAIS 2018) will be held in the exotic island of Rhodes (Greece) which has a beautiful medieval town built by the crusaders and it is preserved as UNESCO monument. A main characteristic of Rhodes is its long ancient history with many ancient Greek sites. Set against the historic backdrop of Rhodes island is the elegant and pisturesque lowrise architecture of Aldemar Amilia Mare Village, an all-inclusive seaside resort. Newly refurbished luxury rooms with sea or garden views are the perfect choice for all holidaymakers, from singles to families. Dive into crystal clear swimming pools, try a wide range of watersports at the beach, enjoy the Spa Centre with its fully equipped fitness area and sample the cosmopolitan delights of the themed restaurants.

EAIS 2018 will provide a working and friendly atmosphere and will be a leading international forum focusing on the discussion of recent advances, the exchange of recent innovations and the outline of open important future challenges in the area of Evolving and Adaptive Intelligent Systems.

Over the past decade, this area has emerged to play an important role on a broad international level in today's real-world applications, especially ones with high complexity and dynamics change. Its embedded modelling and learning methodologies are able to cope with real-time demands, changing operation conditions, varying environmental influences, human behaviors, knowledge expansion scenarios and drifts in online data streams.

EAIS 2018 is organized by the IEEE Technical Committee on Evolving and Adaptive Intelligent Systems, SMC Society and the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.

University Curricula Subcommittee

The CIS University Curricula Subcommittee intends to build up a collection of links to good quality courses on "everything CI". Are you teaching a CI course, and either some or all material can be accessed by interested learners free-of-charge? If this is the case, you are cordially invited to submit your course to the newly created subreddit. Or do you know of a great course? If so, then tell the teaching staff about this opportunity to (1) get some exposure and (2) contribute to the education of the general public!
Over time, this subreddit will contain educational material that can be used by everybody, for example, to learn about some cool CI technology from scratch, or to keep up-to-date with new trends. The dynamic nature of subreddits allows us to easily share details about courses, as well as to ask and answer questions. The subreddit will be lightly moderated by the Subcommittee, lead by Markus Wagner.

  3. How long have you been a member of CIS?
    For as long as the CIS has existed.
  4. One reason why you are a member of CIS:
    My research interests match its coverage perfectly.
  5. What was your service pathway in the Computational Intelligence Society?
    My recollection is that it began with organizing sessions at FUZZ-IEEE, becoming a member and then Chair of the Fuzzy Systems TC, and then being asked to run for the AdCOM. I did and was very privileged to have served on it for 9 years. Meeting and being able to interact with AdCom members was a truly wonderful experience for me. My most fun project was being Chair of the committee that created and ran the first CIS competition to produce a short video that explained fuzzy sets and systems. We had two winners.
  6. Give one interesting fact about yourself:
    I am an avid Bridge player having played now for more than 55 years. I also read a lot of Bridge books.
