The primary focus of the IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence for Energy, Transport, and Environmental Sustainability is the convergence of computational intelligence (CI) with the vital areas of energy, transport, and environmental sustainability. This subject is crucial as it tackles the urgent difficulties encountered in energy, transportation, and environmental sustainability, which directly affect our world and future generations.

Computational intelligence has been effectively utilized in diverse sectors within this field. For example, CI has been employed in enhancing energy generation and distribution systems, optimizing transportation networks and logistics, and creating sophisticated environmental monitoring and management solutions. These applications have demonstrated the value of CI in tackling intricate challenges and attaining effective and durable results.

Notwithstanding the advancements achieved, there remain various concerns that necessitate attention. These encompass the incorporation of sustainable energy sources into current power networks, the enhancement of transportation systems to minimize traffic and pollution, and the creation of accurate forecasting models for environmental events. The Symposium seeks to offer a forum for researchers and practitioners to deliberate on these matters and other related issues, exchange their most recent discoveries, and investigate pioneering solutions employing CI approaches.

We are seeking contributions that address either theoretical developments or practical applications in these fields. Further, the symposium aims to promote collaboration and the sharing of knowledge to develop the field of CI for energy, transport, and environmental sustainability. Ultimately, a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future.
