|IEEE SSCI 2015 will have three plenary speakers (Marco Dorigo, Paulo Lisboa, and Xin Yao) and 15 keynote talks. Additionally, 14 free tutorials will be presented during the conference.
|The 2015 IEEE FRANK ROSENBLATT AWARD has been awarded to Prof Marco Dorigo. The award shall be presented to him at the IEEE SSCI'15 Conference in Cape Town.
For contributions to the foundations of swarm intelligence
Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society
Marco Dorigo’s groundbreaking research on biologically inspired intelligent methods for solving optimization problems has helped launch the discipline of swarm intelligence. Swarm intelligence studies distributed systems whose problem-solving abilities derive from self-organized local interactions between their constituent components. Prof. Dorigo is most known for his work on the ant colony optimization (ACO) methodology, inspired by the foraging behavior of ants, which is used by researchers worldwide and has generated many high-performance algorithms. He is also a leading contributor to swarm robotics, which applies swarm intelligence principles to coordinate large groups of autonomous robots without relying on any external infrastructure or on any form of centralized control. This holds promise for performing tasks too difficult or dangerous for humans.
An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Dorigo is an F.R.S.-FNRS research director and a co-director of IRIDIA, the artificial intelligence lab of the Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium.
Welcome to the IEEE SSCI 2015 South Africa
Welcome to the Mother City of South Africa for the IEEE SSCI 2015, a flagship international conference sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) promoting all aspects of Computational Intelligence (CI). The IEEE SSCI 2015 co-locates multiple symposiums at one single location, providing a unique opportunity to encourage crossfertilization and collaborations in all areas of CI. The IEEE SSCI 2015 features a large number of keynotes, tutorials, special sessions, and currently 30 confirmed symposiums and workshops. We hope you will join us at this exciting event, and look forward to seeing you in sunny Cape Town in December 2015!
