IEEE Symposium on Swarm Intelligence (IEEE SIS)

The 2021 IEEE Swarm Intelligence Symposium (SIS 2021) will be held in Orlando, Florida, in December 2021. It will be a part of the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence 2021. The theme of the SIS 2021 is to provide a platform for researchers, academicians, students, engineers, and government officers from all over the world to share and exchange information in the swarm intelligence research areas ranging from algorithm development to real-world applications. Authors are invited to submit their original and unpublished work related to swarm intelligence, including research, theory, development, and applications.
