2010 Systemics and Informatics World Network (SIWN 2010)

The 1st International Conference on Swarm Intelligence and Emergent Computing (SIEC 2010)


Chongqing, China, 12-14 July 2010



Call for Papers (PDF   Doc   TXT)


Complex Adaptive Systems are widespread both in the nature and in socio-economic phenomena. A Multi-Agent Based Complex System has its dynamic behaviour that is inherently emerging as a result of intensive interactions among its massive agents. Examples of Multi-Agent Based Complex Systems include social insects, population aggregations in urbane regions, market based economy, city taxi cabs, etc.  Swarm Intelligence represents a methodology for analyzing and modeling Multi-Agent Based Complex Systems, and Emergent Computing is concerned with the methodology for engineering robust, dependable, self-adaptable Multi-Agent Based Complex Systems out of massive, simple, unreliable objects, devices or units. Essentially Emergent Computing represents a new approach which takes a Collective Intelligence point of view upon all types of artificial systems, e.g., web/Internet based systems, social networking, online virtual communities, pervasive/ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence, socio-technical systems, and so forth.


SIEC2010 aims to provide a timely international, multi-disciplinary forum on the latest theories, methods, techniques and applications in Swarm Intelligence and Emergence Computing.
