Conferences: May-July 2008

A selection of upcoming conferences

7 March 2008


hkIEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence
Hong Kong

1–6 June

This conference features three simultaneous events: the IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC), the IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE), and the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN).

CEC covers such topics as artificial immune systems and evolutionary robotics. FUZZ-IEEE takes on all things fuzzy: logic, set theory, and pattern recognition. Computational, brain imaging, and swarm intelligence are some of the topics featured at IJCNN.

SPONSORS: IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, Evolutionary Program Society, International Neural Network Society, and the Institution of Engineering and Technology



paIEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging

12–17 May

Facilitating interaction among researchers in medical and biological imaging is the primary aim of this annual conference.

Papers offer contributions to the algorithmic, mathematical, and computational aspects of biomedical imaging—from nano- to macroscale. Topics include image formation and reconstruction, computational and statistical image processing and analysis, dynamic imaging, image quality assessment, and physical, biological, and statistical modeling. Molecular, cellular, anatomical, and functional imaging modalities and applications are also explored and discussed.

SPONSORS: IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, IEEE Signal Processing Society



romaIEEE Radar Conference

26–30 May

The first IEEE Radar Conference to be held outside the United States explores new avenues and methods of radar signal processing.

The conference covers all aspects of radar systems for civil, security, and defense applications. Topics include radar early warning, sonar, antenna and component technology, radar signal and data processing, air-traffic-control radar, weather radar, merchant marine radar, and radar simulation.

The event also features 
lectures by four keynote speakers: Aviation Week and Space Technology’s 2006 Person of the Year, Pier Francesco Guarguaglini, chief executive 
officer of Finmeccanica; Marina Grossi, CEO of Selex Sistemi Integrati; Merrill I. Skolnik, former superintendent of the radar division at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C.; and Hugh Griffiths, IEEE Radar System Panel chair.

SPONSOR: IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society



alaskaIEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks

24–27 June

This annual conference addresses ways to protect computers and networks from attacks, accidental faults, design errors, and unexpected operating conditions. Two symposia—the Dependable Computing and Communications Symposium and the Performance and Dependability Symposium—are scheduled, along with workshops, tutorials, a student forum, and demonstrations of tools and technologies.

Special discounts and excursions will be offered to attendees’ family members.

SPONSORS: IEEE Computer Society, International Federation for Information Processing



torontoIEEE International Symposium on Information Theory

6–11 July

Topics include coding theory and practice; communication theory; cryptography and data security; detection and estimation; information theory and its application to statistics and networks; pattern recognition and learning; quantum information theory; Shannon theory, and source coding.

SPONSOR: IEEE Information Theory Society



bostonIEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium

7–11 July

This year’s theme is Geoscience and Remote Sensing: The Next Generation. The conference addresses the challenges of mapping, measuring, and monitoring Earth’s environment, including the human impact on the planet.

Topics include land use and land cover change; ocean biology and water quality; numerical 
weather prediction and data 
assimilation; data mining 
techniques; human health and landscape epidemiology; and pollution and contamination.

SPONSORS: IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency, NASA, Rochester Institute of Technology, Tufts University
