The 18th Asia Pacific Symposium on Intelligent and Evolutionary Systems

10-12th November 2014, Singapore

Welcome to Singapore!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 18th Asia Pacific Symposium of Intelligent and Evolutionary Systems (IES) to be held in Singapore from 10-12th November 2014. IES 2014 aims to bring together researchers from countries of the Asian Pacific Rim in the fields of intelligent systems and evolutionary computation to exchange ideas, present recent results and discuss possible collaborations. Researchers from elsewhere interested in collaboration with researchers from Asian Pacific Rim are also most welcome. Technical exchanges within the research community will encompass keynote speeches, invited sessions, tutorials discussions as well as oral presentations. On top of this, participants will be treated to a series of social functions, receptions and networking sessions, which will serve as a vital channel to establish new connections and foster everlasting friendship among fellow counterparts.
