The integration of Computational Intelligence (CI) has become crucial in addressing complex problems that traditional approaches struggle to solve. To date, CI has found applications in diverse domains, including finance, healthcare and robotics, demonstrating its versatility and efficacy in solving real-world challenges. However, there is further potential in less explored areas of Applied CI where exploitation of the breadth of CI techniques can create new groundbreaking solutions in such domains or be applied to enhance other non-traditional technologies.

The symposium aims to nurture sub-fields of Applied CI, such as archaeology, agricultural sciences, aerospace engineering, neuroscience or climate science to mention a few, where there is much potential for further growth as well as providing a meeting place for niche areas of Applied CI that merit more focus. The special sessions will provide a venue for the foremost research in the selected domain. Both theoretical and practical contributions are sought from industry and academia alike. Further, poster-only submissions welcome domain submissions highlighting areas of the domain that could benefit from CI approaches. Where provided, workshops will provide more informal presentations and discussions on important topics in the relevant domain. All submissions to this symposia are to the individual Special Sessions/Workshops. There are no general symposium submissions.
