Call For Papers

3rd International Workshop on
(CIMA 2012)

in conjunction with
22th IEEE European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI 2012)

27/28 August, 2012, Montpellier, France


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 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 the
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 biennial 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.

Topics of interest of the Workshop are (but not limited to):

Case-Based Reasoning Integrations
Genetic Algorithms Integrations
Combinations for the Semantic Web
Combinations and Web Intelligence
Combinations and Web Mining
Fuzzy-Evolutionary Systems
Hybrid deterministic and stochastic optimisation methods
Hybrid Knowledge Representation Approaches/Systems
Hybrid and Distributed Ontologies
Information Fusion Techniques for Hybrid Intelligent Systems
Integrations of Neural Networks
Intelligent Agents Integrations
Machine Learning Combinations
Neuro-Fuzzy Approaches/Systems

Applications of Combinations of Intelligent Methods to
-Biology & Bioinformatics
-Education & Distance Learning
-Medicine & Health Care


We are interested in high quality research papers on the above or related topics.
Interested authors should submit electronic versions of their papers (in pdf format)
at The papers should not exceed
6 pages, following ECAI guidelines ( All papers will be refereed by at least two members of the program
committee of the Workshop. Accepted papers will be presented in the Workshop sessions
of the conference.


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.


One of the authors of each accepted paper is expected to register for the Conference
and present it either in a special track session or in a workshop session of the
conference. There is no special registration fee for the Workshop. Authors of accepted
papers should register by the camera-ready deadline, otherwise their papers will not be
included in the proceedings and presented at the conference.


Paper submission: May 28th, 2012
Acceptance notification: June 30th, 2012
Camera-ready: July 15th, 2012
