CFP: BICT 2015 SPECIAL TRACK ON ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND SOFTWARE ENGINEERING (AISE)

9TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON BIO-INSPIRED INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGIES (FORMERLY BIONETICS)

DECEMBER 3 (THU) - DECEMBER 5, 2015 (SAT)
NYC, NY, USA

As software engineering is required to address automation, adaptation, optimization and scalability issues, other computer science disciplines come to play. Artificial Intelligence is one of them that may help in solve some challenges currently facing software engineering research and practice. Conversely, software engineering techniques can also play an important role to alleviate development cost and time of AI techniques as well as assist in introducing new AI techniques. Such mutual benefits have appeared in the past few decades and still evolve due to new challenges.

The objective of the special track on Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering (AISE) is to provide a forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange and discuss latest innovative synergy between AI and software engineering. Namely, we are interested in AI solutions to software engineering challenges, software engineering practices to answer AI obstacles, and techniques that could benefit these realms bi-directionally.

This special track seeks high-quality original and unpublished papers in the following topics including but not limited to these topics:

  • AI techniques for software engineering issues in emerging paradigms and systems such as big data, wearable computing, cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT)
  • AI techniques for optimization, transformation and configuration management
  • AI techniques for software reuse, evolution, maintenance and refactoring
  • AI techniques for reverse engineering and program comprehension
  • AI techniques for concurrent/parallel software development and maintenance
  • AI techniques for ontology and other semantic aspects in software engineering
  • AI techniques for business process management and business rules
  • AI techniques for aspect mining and pattern mining
  • AI techniques for cost analysis and risk assessment in software projects
  • Agent-based software engineering
  • Visual modeling and model-driven development for AI techniques
  • Domain modeling and software language engineering (e.g., domain-specific languages) for AI techniques
  • Service-oriented computing and Cloud computing for AI-based techniques/software
  • Object-oriented and aspect-oriented frameworks to implement and evaluate AI techniques
  • Formal methods for AI techniques
  • Rapid prototyping and scripting for AI techniques
  • Software for knowledge acquisition and representation
  • Software metrics applied to AI techniques
  • Search engines in AI
  • User interfaces for AI techniques

AI techniques of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Machine Learning (unsupervised and supervised learning)
  • Evolutionary Algorithms (e.g. GA, GP, ES)
  • Swarm Intelligence
  • Simulated Annealing
  • Tabu Search
  • Probabilistic Reasoning
  • Fuzzy Logic
  • Neural Networks
  • Petri Nets
  • Data Mining
  • Game Theory
  • Time Series Analysis
  • Logic and reasoning
  • Knowledge representation
  • AI planning
