ISAIO 2018

Objective and Scope:

The Artificial Intelligence brings the growing AI community together to explore the most essential issues and intriguing innovations in applied AI. The objective is to promote theoretical and applied AI research as well as intellectual interchange among researchers and practitioners. Optimization is another important technique in scientific computing. This international workshop aims to provide a platform for researchers working on optimization and scientific computing to gather and enhance the interaction among them. In particular, the workshop gives a forum for researchers to present their latest achievements and explore new research directions.
Innovative optimization and AI enabled computing approaches have attracted many research scientists, decision makers, managers, executives, engineers, academicians, officers and practicing researchers in recent years as powerful intelligent computational techniques for solving several complex real-world problems. The International workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Optimization 2018 highlights the most recent research innovations and applications in the fields of Science, Computer Science, Engineering, Information Technology and Management.

Prof. Baoding Liu
Professor of Uncertainty Theory Laboratory, Department of Mathematical Sciences, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China

Prof. Liu received his B.S. degree in 1986 from Nankai University, and his M.S. degree in 1989 and Ph.D. degree in 1993 from Chinese Academy of Sciences.
