9th International Conference on Computational Collective Intelligence

ICCCI 2017

Hilton Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus

27 - 29 September, 2017


(collocated with the 21st European Conference on Advances in
Databases and Information Systems, http://cyprusconferences.org/adbis2017/)

Computational Collective Intelligence is most often understood as an AI
subfield dealing with soft computing methods which enable making group
decisions or processing knowledge among autonomous units acting in
distributed environments. Web-based systems, social networks and
multi-agent systems very often need these tools for working out consistent
knowledge states, resolving conflicts and making decisions. ICCCI 2017 is
the 9th edition of the conference organized by the University of Cyprus and
Wroclaw University of Science and Technology in Poland, in cooperation with
the IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Computational Collective Intelligence.
The aim of the conference is to provide an internationally respected forum
for scientific research in the computer-based methods of collective
intelligence and their applications in (but not limited to) such fields as
group decision making, consensus computing, knowledge integration,
semantic web, social networks and multi-agent systems.

The 114 high quality papers will be presented by researchers from 31
countries all over the world on the following topics:

- Knowledge Engineering and Semantic Web
- Social Networks and Recommender Systems
- Data Mining Methods and Applications
- Multi-agent Systems
- Sensor Networks and Internet of Things
- Decision Support & Control Systems
- Cooperative Strategies for Decision Making and Optimization
- Computational Swarm Intelligence
- Machine Learning in Medicine and Biometrics
- Cyber Physical Systems in Automotive Area
- Internet of Things - Its Relations and Consequences
- Text Processing and Information Retrieval
- Low Resource Language Processing
- Computer Vision Techniques
- Intelligent Processing of Multimedia in Web Systems
