8th Annual Conference on Computational Science & Computational Intelligence
Computational Science (CS) is the study of addressing problems that are impossible to solve (or difficult to solve) without computers. CS can be considered to be the bridge between computer science and other sciences. The field is interdisciplinary by nature and includes the use of advanced computing capabilities to understand and solve complex problems. In short, CS is the science of using computers to do science.
Computational Intelligence (CI) is the study of computational methods in ways that exhibit intelligence. These methods adapt to changing environments and changing goals. There is a significant overlap between the fields of CI and Artificial Intelligence (AI). However, there is also a difference: AI techniques often involve top-to-bottom methods (i.e., methods to the solutions are imposed from the top) whereas CI techniques often involve bottom-up methods (i.e., solutions emerge from unstructured beginnings). An important part of CI includes a set of Nature-inspired computational approaches to address complex problems to which traditional methods are infeasible.
Computational Science and Computational Intelligence, both share the same objective: finding solutions to difficult problems. However, the methods to the solutions are different. The main objective of the CSCI Conference is to facilitate increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across CS and CI.
The CSCI Conference is committed to encouraging diversity and eliminating discrimination in both its role as a conference and as a provider of services. CSCI aims to create a culture that respects and values each others’ differences, that promotes dignity, equality and diversity, and that encourages individuals to develop and maximize their true potential resulting in diversity of products and diversity of solutions to challenging research problems. We are committed wherever practicable to organizing a conference that broadly reflects the international community.
