International Conference on Computational Intelligence

International Conference on Computational Intelligence At G R Govindarajulu School of Applied Computer Technology
P S G R Krishnammal College for Women Peelamedu, Coimbatore - 641 004.


To provide a challenging forum for international community of researchers, engineers, academicians and industrial professionals to exhibit their research results and to discuss the issues and developments in the cutting edge technologies of Computational Intelligence and its applications in Science, Technology and Business. This conference provides vibrant opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas, application experiences, the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted, and to establish business or research relations thereby enabling to find global partners for future collaboration.


Computational Intelligence is a well established paradigm devoted to solution of non-algoritmizable problems related to perception and control, or lower cognitive functions. Computational Intelligence is a heterogeneous field of computer science that deals with theory, design, application and development of biologically and linguistically motivated computational models emphasizing prime technologies like neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, probabilistic reasoning, swarm intelligence, and machine learning.

Computational Intelligence research does not reject conventional statistical methods, but often gives a complementary view. According to scientific convention, Computational Intelligence is a computational part of Artificial Intelligence and comprises a number of techniques and methods that share the property of being non-symbolic, operating in a bottom-up fashion where structure usually emerges from an unstructured environment.

Computational Intelligence theories and methodologies are being extensively applied in solving complex and changing real-world applications in science, technology and business. Some examples are aerospace applications, computational finance and economics, data mining, automotive applications, software engineering, health care, virtual reality, intelligent control and factory automation, speech and vision processing, telecommunications, business intelligence, bioinformatics, biometrics, intelligent measuring systems, and homeland security. Empirical results reveal that the intelligent systems are highly efficient and could significantly reduce computational complexities.
Today’s demand for expertise in Computational Intelligence far exceeds supply and this imbalance will become more acute in the future. Hence, there is an urgent need for a new generation of computational intelligent techniques and tools to solve real-world problems that are ill-defined and difficult to model. Bringing together diverse expertise and experience to foster new research perspectives in the broad field of Computational intelligence is inevitable.

Sustainable water resources management and climate change adaptation are increasingly becoming highly recognized global issues. As water is a basic necessity for life, it is of utmost importance to understand impact of climate change on water resources. This holds particularly true for a country like India, where water is a scarce resource and adverse impacts on water resources has recently been observed as a consequence of climate change. Since water is the most widely used resource for sustaining life on earth and achieving development in various spheres of life, engineering of water resources system is now being linked to the climate of the region. Water resources have wide spatial and temporal distribution due to which hydraulics and hydrology of water resources becomes intricately dependent on each other. Due to its multiple benefits and the problems created by its excesses, deficit, and quality deterioration, the conservation and management of water resources requires special attention on the management of environment of the water resources system. During the last couple of decades, fast industrial growth has led to rapid urbanization resulting in multifold increase for demand of water, whereas remarkable change in climate has occurred. The rising pressure on water resources has resulted in altered watersheds and changes in the course of river systems. These alterations have greatly affected the flow in system of water resources which have contributed to heavy loss of lives and properties during flooding. Rapid urbanization, change in climate, changes in watershed condition and course of rivers demand better strategies for management of this precious resource for sustained industrial growth so that water necessary for industrial as well as agricultural use can be made available for a secured future.


The conference is being organized to broadly cover all aspects of sustainable water resources management and climate change adaptation. Some of the highlighted themes are:

µ Climate Change Prediction

µ Climate Change Adaptation

µ Susceptibility of Water Resources due to Climate Change

µ Weather Forecasting

µ Flood Forecasting, Warning and Management

µ Hydrological prediction in ungauged basins

µ Hydrologic data and its management

µ Surface and Groundwater Resources Management

µ Pollution Management

µ Water resources development, management and conservation under uncertainty

µ Application of Emerging Techniques in Water Sector

µ Application of Remote Sensing Technique and Geographical Information System in the field of Water Resources

µ Soft Computing for Water Resources Engineering and Management

µ Hydraulics of rainwater harvesting and recharging system

µ Eco-hydraulics and river restoration

µ Environmental flow requirements

µ Hydraulics of large-scale water transfer – hydrological, environmental, ecological, economic, and social dimensions

µ Mechanics of sediment transport and fluvial hydraulics

µ Hydraulics and hydrology of lakes, reservoir.

Medical imaging is one of the biggest blessings of science and technology to serve the humanity. The remarkable developments in the field of medical imaging is intensified by advancement of image processing, pattern recognition and machine intelligence techniques and they have strengthened the recent advancement of medical diagnostics. The key benefit of medical imaging is that it makes diagnosis possible in a non-invasive way. Medical imaging can be used for early detection, where the diseases could be detected at an early stage and thereby the chance of revival is increased for the patients and that comes with less pain and expenditure. Over the years people from various disciplines including doctors, engineers and scientists have strengthened this niche area of medical imaging. Though it�s an exciting area of research, the role of south-eastern Asian countries and African nations are very insignificant in this domain. However, to make the affordable solution available and acceptable to the masses the active participation of the local researchers is necessary in this region. One of the primary challenges of this domain is that it needs a multi-disciplinary approach. This workshop brings the key personalities/participants in this field to share with you their recent advances and experiences. It provides you the recent trend of industry needs and research and creates an opportunity to develop the local as well as global network. Department of Electronics & Electrical Communication Engineering and School of Medical Science & Technology, IIT Kharagpur being actively involved in multidisciplinary research and teaching in medical imaging and instrumentation, image processing and pattern analysis, provides the venue of this workshop.

Topics/Areas to be Covered:

* Introduction to Medical Imaging

early as in 1966, a Post Graduate course in Sociology had been introduced. The
Department of Sociology, in consistent with her commitment towards academic
excellence through collaborative academic initiatives, will organize in collaboration with
the Centre for Consumer Studies, Indian Institute of Public Administration, New Delhi,
a Two-day National Seminar during December 15-16, 2010.

Central Theme and Sub-themes:

The Central Theme of the Seminar is: Rural Consumers in Globalizing Market: Vulnerability and Choices. The Sub-themes of the Seminar are:
1. Rural Consumers: Vulnerability and Choices;
2. Working of Rural Consumer Organizations and Institutions and 3. Consumer Welfare and Institutions of Higher Learning. These are only illustrative, of course. Unpublished conceptual and empirical papers are invited on these and related issues.

Brief Note on Sub-Theme:

The business entrepreneurs, manufacturer or service provider, national or multinational, large or small have become more mobile and aggressive than ever before in exploring new markets to sell their products and services. Liberalization of economies, the economic concomitant of globalization, has reinforced the process of desperate quest for market. True it is, the consumers of the liberalizing economies, including that of India, enjoy access to a greater variety of commodities and services than ever before. Truer it is, the chances of being victims of improper choice and fraudulent behaviour of
the enterprises have increased manifold. In case of the consumers in globalizing rural market, the situation turns out to be more critical. This calls for concerted and collective resolution in reducing incidence of deception and ensuring choices of the consumers. This Seminar is primarily intended to be an occasion towards this direction.
The rural segment of the Indian society has convincing and enviable potentialities for growth with substantial demand for both products and services. The rural India has been witnessing conspicuously changing world of consumption in compatible with her growing purchasing power. In order to woo the ‘not-so-affluent and not-so-poor’ segment, which constitute the majority of the rural consumers, the entrepreneurs have introduced newer marketing strategies (from packet to sachet, from cash to EMI, for example). It is not alone agri-business, the rural India is also poised to lead in sector like FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods). Recent studies on rural consumers however, suggest that they are deceived at the market place in various forms: from fake FMCG product (both ‘counterfeit’ and ‘pass-off’) to inflated electricity/telephone bill to medical negligence. It is chiefly ill-information or, mal-information on the part of a consumer
about products and services that al lows him to be deceived. Interestingly, in India, most cases of deception either remain unreported or settled out-of-court. What then dissuades the deceived to avoid the redressal mechanism? Is it that the redressal process needs to be more ‘consumer-centric’?
Under changing social conditions, axiomatic it is, the state is in no mood to shoulder the welfare-obligations, alone. The post-reform Indian society has been witnessing slow but steady actualization of the private-public partnership model of development. The state’s limited or, fractured initiatives to effectively ensure ‘consumer justice’ on the one hand and occasional fraudulent behaviour as an entrepreneur on the other have chiefly induced the non-state consumer organizations to emerge and intervene. The non-state organizations exist both as ‘critique’ and ‘collaborator’ to the state’s initiatives towards consumer welfare.
It is only recently that a scheme has been launched to ensure effective involvement of the institutions of higher learning in consumer protection and consumer welfare. Appreciating this initiative, the present Seminar will strive to delineate how best the potentialities of the institutions of higher learning be used for a social cause.
The central concern of the Seminar has been divided into three sub-themes. Each of these three sub-themes has been put, in some detail, here-in-below.

I Rural Consumers: Vulnerability and Choices:

Fraudulent behaviour among the entrepreneurs is allegedly more rampant in rural markets than in urban markets. The multiple ways the consumers are deceived in a globalizing rural market and its impact demands adequate scholastic attention. How is resistance to fraudulent behaviour of the enterprises mobilized at the local? Why are some people more vulnerable than others? How well the more vulnerable be provided protection in an imperfect market? What prevents a consumer from seeking redressal against deception and/or, what induces a consumer to prefer out-of-court settlement?
Prescription in regard to choice of the vulnerable rural consumers need to be based on adequate knowledge about the nature, magnitude and incidence of deception as well as the structures of vulnerability in the rural market with reference to the rights of individuals as consumers in Indian society.

II Working of Rural Consumer Organizations and Institutions:

The non-state consumer organizations are both taken care of and monitored by the state. The non-state consumer organizations reciprocate to the initiatives of the state even being a critique of it. Both, the state and the non-state consumer organizations gain through this kind of ‘collaboration’. One becomes interested to know: how do the non-state consumer organizations manage to remain faithful to conflicting rolesituations viz.; a critique and a collaborator of state-action? The complex interaction between the state and the non-state consumer organizations needs to be critically
analysed to ascertain the efficacy of the private-public partnership model in ensuring consumer justice. A review of the working of these organizations will ensure reliable input towards an understanding of the sustainability of these organizations. The variety of constraints experienced by the non-state consumer organizations in course of roleperformance have failed to attract adequate attention. The redressal mechanism at the local level also deserves critical attention.

III Consumer Welfare and Institutions of Higher Learning:

The institutions of higher learning can significantly contribute towards consumer welfare and consumer protection. While this Seminar will deal with this issue at length to suggest how well the institutions of higher learning can contribute to consumer welfare and consumer protection, it can be argued, consumer welfare and consumer protection can very well be an arena of inter-disciplinary research. Again, the expertise, achieved through inter-disciplinary research, may be transferred to the immediate community as part of outreach programme. It is to be explored if collaboration between
institutions of higher learning towards policy research is feasible.

Previous Conferences / Workshops:

Previously the department has successfully organized National Seminars on Devices, Circuits and Communications (NASDEC2) in the year 2006 and 2008. The seminars were organized at national level and were focused in the areas of Electronic Devices, Circuits and Communication Systems. The seminars were very successful in attracting a large number of participants and creating an interactive platform for discussions. The department has also organized two International Workshops in the areas of Wireless Communications in the years 2003 and 2004. The workshops were named as International Workshop on Wireless Communications Technologies (IWWCT-2003 and IWWCT-2004). A large number of foreign nationals, Indian universities, government organizations and companies participated in the workshops. The workshops resulted in the establishment of International Centre for Wireless and Mobile Communications (ICWMC) at the department of Electronics and Communications Engineering, Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, Ranchi and one International Research Centre on 4th Generation (IRC-4G) at the Birla Institute of Technology, extension centre Noida. The department has also organized a National Conference on Recent Advances in Wireless and Mobile Communications (RAWMTEL-2008) in close associations with Institution of Engineers (India), Jharkhand State Centre, Ranchi in the year 2008. The International Conference on Devices and Communications (ICDeCom-2010) is conceptually an extension of its previous traditions.
