Call For Papers


Computational Intelligence – a sub-branch of Artificial Intelligence – studies are primarily inspired by the laws of nature and adaptive mechanisms in order to enable or facilitate intelligent behavior in changing complex environments. These mechanisms include these Artificial Intelligence paradigms that exhibit an ability to learn and adapt to new situations, to generalize, abstract and discover new knowledge. The following paradigms are commonly associated with Computational Intelligence: artificial neural networks, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, artificial immune systems, and fuzzy systems. Individual techniques from these Computational Intelligence paradigms, as well as combinations (hybrid methods) of these paradigms, have been applied successfully to solve a variety of real world problems. In particular, these techniques have been widely applied to time series prediction, financial forecasting and trading.

The aim of this workshop is to serve as an interdisciplinary forum for bringing together specialists from the scientific areas of Computer Engineering, Finance and Operational Research. The focus of this workshop is on current technological advances and challenges about the applications of computational intelligence techniques in financial time-series forecasting and trading.

Therefore, the Workshop on “Applying Computational Intelligence Techniques in Financial Time Series Forecasting and Trading” will welcome paper submissions introducing and implementing Computational Intelligent techniques to address various modeling and predicting financial applications. This workshop will provide a medium for the exchange of ideas between theoreticians and practitioners.
