Evolving and adaptive fuzzy models for data streams
12th International Workshop on Fuzzy Logic and Applications
September 6-8, 2018 - Santa Margherita Ligure, Italy (

Nowadays a wide range of real-world scenarios yield data streams, i.e. collections of data being generated continuously either over time or over space. E-commerce and banking transactions, weather forecasting recordings and sensor data, customer reports and network traffic records are common examples of data streams produced every day. Accordingly there is an urgent need of methods capable to handle and analyze streams of data that are usually vast in volume (or possibly infinite), high-dimensional and changing dynamically. Analysis of data streams requires models that are specifically designed to adapt continuously and automatically to smooth evolutions (drifts) and abrupt changes (shifts) in the data distribution. Evolving intelligent systems (EIS) is an emerging field that focuses on adaptive evolving models in soft computing.  The main objective of this special session is to discuss the potential of fuzzy techniques to develop EIS for prediction and classification tasks in challenging scenarios involving data streams. 

The special session is intended to collect novel ideas and share different experiences in the field of evolving fuzzy models for data streams. Submission of papers covering theoretical and application aspects of evolving fuzzy models are encouraged. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
● Learning in non-stationary environments
● Online/incremental fuzzy clustering
● Fuzzy techniques for data stream mining
● Evolving Soft Computing Techniques
● Evolving Fuzzy Systems
● Evolving Rule-Based Classifiers
● Evolving Neuro-Fuzzy Systems
● Adaptive Evolving Fuzzy Systems
● Online Genetic and Evolutionary Algorithms
● Adaptive Pattern Recognition
● Incremental and Evolving Fuzzy ML Classifiers
● Big Data analysis through Fuzzy techniques

The CILab has organized the IV European Summer School on Fuzzy Logic and Applications which will be held in Bari from 25 to 29 June ( The school was promoted by the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology and aimed at introducing the core aspects and the recent developments of Fuzzy Logic and related applications. The School proposed several courses delivered by world-leading experts in the field. A key aspect of the School was the focus on communication and collaboration among participants and lecturers, ensuring time for discussions so that a fruitful ground for exchanging knowledge can be established. PhD students and young researchers attending the school were given also the opportunity to provide short presentations of their activities.

Special Session on Advances on Explainable Artificial Intelligence

posted Oct 27, 2017, 6:57 AM by Corrado Mencar

17th International Conference on Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge-based Systems (IPMU 2018)
11 - 15 June 2018, Cádiz, Spain

In the era of the Internet of Things and Big Data, data scientists are required to extract valuable knowledge from the given data. They first analyze, cure and pre-process data. Then, they apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to automatically extract knowledge from data. 
Our focus is on knowledge representation and how to enhance human-machine interaction. As remarked in the last challenge stated by the USA Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), 
even though current AI systems offer many benefits in many applications, their effectiveness is limited by a lack of explanation ability when interacting with humans. 
Accordingly, non-expert users, i.e., users without a strong background on AI, require a new generation of explainable AI systems. They are expected to naturally interact with humans, thus providing comprehensible explanations of decisions automatically made. The goal of this special session is to discuss and disseminate the most recent advancements focused on explainable artificial intelligence. The session goes a step ahead with respect to the previous events we organized (which were mainly focused on interpretable fuzzy systems) in some other conferences: joint IFSA-EUSFLAT 2009, ISDA 2009, WCCI 2010, WILF 2011, ESTYLF 2012, WCCI 2012, EUSFLAT 2013, IFSA-EUSFLAT2015, and FUZZ-IEEE2017.
