SIEC 2010
The 1st International Conference on Swarm Intelligence and Emergent Computing

In conjunction with the “The 2010 Systemics and Informatics World Network” (SIWN 2010) Chongqing, China, 12-14 July 2010

Complex Adaptive Systems are widespread both in the nature and in socio-economic phenomena. A Multi-Agent Based Complex System has its dynamic behaviour that is inherently emerging as a result of intensive interactions among its massive agents. Examples of Multi-Agent Based Complex Systems include social insects, population aggregations in urbane regions, market based economy, city taxi cabs, etc.  Swarm Intelligence represents a methodology for analyzing and modeling Multi-Agent Based Complex Systems, and Emergent Computing is concerned with the methodology for engineering robust, dependable, self-adaptable Multi-Agent Based Complex Systems out of massive, simple, unreliable objects, devices or units. Essentially Emergent Computing represents a new approach which takes a Collective Intelligence point of view upon all types of artificial systems, e.g., web/Internet based systems, social networking, online virtual communities, pervasive/ubiquitous computing, ambient intelligence, socio-technical systems, and so forth.
SIEC2010 aims to provide a timely international, multi-disciplinary forum on the latest theories, methods, techniques and applications in Swarm Intelligence and Emergence Computing.

SIWN 2010 only accepts manuscripts of original contributions. A manuscript for submission to the Conference should neither have been published nor have been under consideration for publication elsewhere. A manuscript for submission to the Conference should be prepared according to the Instructions for Authors of the Journal that can be found at along with Sample Word Doc and Latex file of Camera-Ready Versions. There is a page limit of 8 formatted pages for the CRV of an accepted paper. Additional pages are subject to over-length charges.

All accepted papers of the Conferences will be included in the electronic Proceedings of SIWN 2010 and at the same time, will be published in the International Journal ((Communications of SIWN)) (ISSN 1757-4439).
After the Conferences, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit thoroughly expanded papers for publication at special issues of following International Journals:
IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics
