Call for Papers WCCI / IJCNN 2016 Special Session "Computational Intelligence for Unmanned Systems"


An unmanned system(US) is a machine or device that is equipped with necessary data processing units, sensors, automatic control, and communications systems and is capable of performing missions autonomously without human intervention. Unmanned systems include unmanned aircraft, ground robots, underwater explorers, satellites, and other unconventional structures. Computational Intelligence(CI) includes classical evolutionary computation, neural computation, fuzzy systems, swarm intelligence(Particle Swarm Optimization, Ant Colony Optimization,.etc.) and other new CI methods such as Bee colony optimization algorithms, Biogeography Based Optimization, Firefly algorithms or hybridizations of CI approaches.

Topics of Interest

This special session aims to cover all subjects of Unmanned Systems relating to the development of automatic machine systems based on CI, which include advanced technologies in unmanned hardware platforms (aerial, ground,underwater and unconventional platforms), unmanned software systems, energy systems, modeling and control, communications systems, computer vision systems, sensing and information processing, navigation and path planning and innovative application case studies.

Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work to this special session. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: CI methods solving technical issues underlying the development of unmanned systems.

  • Biologically-inspired computing for US
  • CI for motion planning of unmanned aircraft, ground robots, underwater explorers 
  • CI for navigation, mapping and localization of unmanned aircraft, ground robots, underwater explorers
