SSCIG-CEC 2017 : Special Session on Computational Intelligence and Games
Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Session on Computational Intelligence and Games (CIG) at IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC) 2017
IEEE CEC 2017 - Special Session
Donostia - San Sebastián, Spain
June 5-8, 2017
Special Session Website: http://www.liujialin.tech/sscig.html
Games are an ideal domain to study computational intelligence (CI) methods because they provide affordable, competitive, dynamic, reproducible environments suitable for testing new search algorithms, pattern-based evaluation methods, or learning concepts. They are also interesting to observe, fun to play, and very attractive to students. Additionally, there is great potential for CI methods to improve the design and development of both computer games and non-digital games such as board games. This special session aims at gathering not only leading researchers, but also young researchers as well as practitioners in this field who research applications of computational intelligence methods to computer games.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
In general, papers are welcome that consider all kinds of applications of CI methods (evolutionary computation, supervised learning, unsupervised learning, fuzzy systems, game-tree search, rolling horizon algorithms, MCTS, etc.) to games (card games, board games, mathematical games, action games, strategy games, role-playing games, arcade games, serious games, etc.). Examples include
Adaptation in games
Automatic game testing
Coevolution in games
Comparative studies (e.g. CI versus human-designed players)
Dynamic difficulty in games
Games as test-beds for CI algorithms
Imitating human players
Learning to play games
Multi-agent and multi-strategy learning
Procedural content generation
Results of game-based CI competitions
Results of open competitions
