Call for Papers


The 7th International Workshop on Intelligent Computational Science (ICS 2016)

In conjunction with IEEE/ACIS ICIS 2016 (
Okayama, Japan, June 26-29, 2016


Intelligent computational science is becoming a hot research topic in recent years. It is a comprehensive application-oriented discipline. Its goal is to deal with massive and complex information, develop new and advanced theories and technologies. Artificial Intelligence technologies are usually used in the computational science area to make computer systems more intelligently process information. The research of intelligent computational science covers fundamental theories, application-oriented theories, key technologies and applications at multiple levels. This research not only has the high theoretical research value but also is of great importance for the infrastructures of the economy.



This workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to present their latest research findings in any aspects of intelligent computational science. We especially encourage papers on Big Data, Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Management, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Grid, Cloud Computing, Distributed Computing etc. We also welcome papers that highlight successful modern applications of intelligent computational science, such as e-Service, e-Learning, Business Intelligence. ICS 2016 attempts to meet the needs of a large and diverse community. The topics include, but not limit to:


- Knowledge discovery and management
