CIMA 2012
3rd International Workshop on
Combinations of Intelligent Methods and Applications
(CIMA 2012)
in conjunction with the
20th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence
(ECAI-12)

August 27/28, 2012, Montpellier, France

 



Objectives

The combination of different intelligent methods is a very active research area in Artificial Intelligence (AI). The aim is to create integrated or hybrid methods that benefit from each of their components. It is generally believed that complex problems can be easier solved with such integrated or hybrid methods. Some of the existing efforts combine what are called soft computing methods (fuzzy logic, neural networks and genetic algorithms) either among themselves or with more traditional AI technologies such as logic and rules. Another stream of efforts integrates case-based reasoning and machine learning with soft-computing and traditional AI methods. Yet another integrates agent-based approaches with logic and also non-symbolic approaches. Some of the combinations have been quite important and have been more extensively used, like neuro-symbolic methods, neuro-fuzzy methods and methods combining rule-based and case-based reasoning. However, there are other combinations that are still under investigation such as those related to Semantic Web. In some cases, combinations are based on first principles, but in most cases they are created in the context of specific applications.

The Workshop is intended to become a forum for exchanging experience and ideas among researchers and practitioners who are dealing with combining intelligent methods either based on first principles or in the context of specific applications.

Proceedings

Proceedings of all accepted papers in pdf format will be published in electronic form in the CEUR workshop proceedings database (an ISSN number will be given). A hardcopy of the proceedings of the Workshop with an ECAI 2012 cover sheet will be distributed during the workshop. Extended versions of the accepted papers will be published as some Springer series book after the workshop.

Workshop Attendance

One of the authors of each accepted paper is expected to register for the Workshop and present it. Workshop registrants should register for the main conference too. Authors of accepted papers should provide proof for their registration by the camera-ready deadline, otherwise their papers will not be included in the proceedings and presented at the Workshop.
