In the past several years, we have seen dramatic advancement in many application domains enabled by the use of computer and networking technologies, as well as computational intelligence algorithms and soft computing methodologies. This development has resulted in many emerging highly multi-disciplinary research areas typically termed as smart-* technologies and systems as well as computational intelligence technologies, including smart-healthcare, smart-home, smart-grid, as well as smart vehicles and intelligent transportation systems. These new technologies are transforming our society and have enormous economic impact. CIST 2015 aims to bring together researchers and engineers from all these areas to disseminate their findings and to foster a community for researchers and engineers to exchange ideas and to form collaborations to further the advancement of the state of the art of smart and intelligent technologies.


CIST 2015 welcomes original, unpublished papers on the research and development in all areas of computational intelligence for smart technologies. Topics of interest include, but not limited to, and application of computational intelligence and soft computing in the following areas:

  • Smart manufacturing, such as smart and connected products, smart and connected factories and production plants, manufacturing intelligence platforms
  • Smart energy, such as smart meters, distributed power flow control, power grid health monitoring and decision support, and smart grid modeling
  • Smart and connected health, such as clinical decision support systems, integrated clinical environment, real-time monitoring of rehabilitation exercises, consumer health informatics, and mobile health
  • Smart technologies in home applications, such as home automation systems, home security systems, and smart and connected home appliances
  • Smart technologies in transportation, such as self-driving vehicles, active traffic management, smart roadside technology, and traffic-flow measurement and automatic incident detection
  • Smart technologies in consumer devices, such as internet of things, fitness trackers, smart locks, smart watches, and virtual reality devices
  • Computational intelligence technologies in robotics and vehicles
  • Computational intelligence technologies in smart wireless communication
  • Biologically-inspired intelligence in robotics and intelligent vehicles
  • Cellular automata for robotics and intelligent vehicles
  • Immune systems for robotics and intelligent vehicles
