IEEE Symposium on Intelligent Agents (IEEE IA)

The synergy between Computational Intelligence and Agent technology opens new important opportunities in many domains where the modeling and control of complex systems play a crucial role. Agents achieve their goals while situated in a dynamic and uncertain environment, adapting their behavior with the surrounding changing. They can be designed to encapsulate Computational Intelligence models and Soft computing techniques to work with uncertain and incomplete information, in order to reach effective solutions in dynamic and complex environments.

The symposium will aim to provide a leading international forum to bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields, such as computer science, information technology, business, education, human factors, systems engineering, and robotics. The symposium will aim to examine the design principles and performance characteristics of various approaches in intelligent agent technology also applied at the most emergent domain of interest, such as surveillance monitoring, earth observations, agriculture, etc. In addition, the symposium will aim to increase the cross fertilization of ideas on the development of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems among many different domains. By encouraging idea-sharing and discussions on the underlying logical, cognitive, physical, and sociological foundations as well as the enabling technologies of intelligent agents, the symposium will foster the development of novel paradigms and advanced solutions in agent-based computing.

This symposium aims at bringing researchers and users from academia and industry together to report, interact and review the latest progress in this field, to explore future directions of research to a wider audience from diverse fields joining the IEEE SSCI 2021, and beyond.
