What we call here Computational Intelligence is the study of data
mining, information extraction, knowledge processing, language
processing, discourse processing, and any area that relates to an
intelligent processing of language, information and knowledge. Until
recently this area has been performed by experts in computer science or
experts in artificial intelligence. In fact, there were many computer
applications in Computational Intelligence without any theoretical
support. Today, people working in such areas often work as members of
pluridisciplinary and interdisciplinary teams, including, of course,
computer scientists and expert of artificial intelligence but also
mathematicians, statisticians, linguists, language experts,
philosophers, logicians, cognitive scientists, neuroscientists,
psycholinguists, anthropologists, etc. Therefore, Computational
Intelligence must become more connected to areas as cognitive science,
mathematics, statistic, linguistics, philosophy, logics, neuroscience,
etc. through the development of methods, strategies and algorithms for
all aspects of language processing, discourse processing, knowledge
processing, information processing, etc. These methods and strategies
can be seen according to their theoretical or practical significance.

The aim of this track is to present original works related to
computational intelligence. These works should focus either on practical
applications, or on results of theoretical foundations of the
discipline. We, therefore, invite authors for original papers
submissions for any work related to theoretical or practical aspects of
Computational Intelligence.

Topics of Interest

Submissions are invited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

* Philosophy of language and discourse
* Cognitive science
* Non standard logics
* Natural language processing
* Computational linguistics (lexicology; morphology; syntax; semantics)
* Information extraction
* Ontologies
* Knowledge processing
* Data Mining, Text Mining, Web Mining
* Information retrieval
* Web Semantics

Paper Submission 

Papers should be submitted in electronic form (PDF) using
 EasyChair (

Papers are up to 6 pages and must be formatted according to the ACM
proceedings format which can be found here:
Papers that fail to comply with length limit will be rejected.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer reviewers. After
the preliminary notification date, authors rebut by evidence and
arguments all reviewer inquiries and their comments.
Based on the rebuttal feedback, reviewers notify authors with the final

Selection criteria will include: relevance, significance, impact,
originality, technical soundness, and quality of
presentation. Preference will be given to submissions that take strong
or challenging positions on important emergent topics related to Digital
Ecosystems. At least one author should attend the conference to present
the paper.

The conference Proceedings will be published by ACM and indexed by the
ACM Digital Library and DBLP.

Important dates

* Full Papers Submission: May 12, 2014
* Notification of Paper Acceptance: July 13, 2014
* Camera – ready papers: August 07, 2014
* Special Track days: September 15-17, 2014
