Computational Science (CS) is the study of addressing problems that are
impossible to solve (or difficult to solve) without computers. CS can be
considered to be the bridge between computer science and other sciences. The
field is interdisciplinary by nature and includes the use of advanced
computing capabilities to understand and solve complex problems. In short,
CS is the science of using computers to do science.
Computational Intelligence (CI) is the study of computational methods in ways
that exhibit intelligence. These methods adapt to changing environments and
changing goals. There is a significant overlap between the fields of CI and
Artificial Intelligence (AI). However, there is also a difference: AI
techniques often involve top-to-bottom methods (i.e., methods to the
solutions are imposed from the top) whereas CI techniques often involve
bottom-up methods (i.e., solutions emerge from unstructured beginnings). An
important part of CI includes a set of Nature-inspired computational approaches
to address complex problems to which traditional methods are infeasible.
CS and CI, both share the same objective: finding solutions to difficult
problems. However, the methods to the solutions are different. The main
objective of the CSCI Conference is to facilitate increased opportunities
for cross-fertilization across CS and CI.


There are three types of submissions:

- Full/Regular Research Papers (maximum of 6 pages):
  Regular Research Papers should provide detail original research
  contributions. They must report new research results that represent
  a contribution to the field; sufficient details and support for
  the results and conclusions should also be provided. The work
  presented in regular papers are expected to be at a stage of
  maturity that with some additional work can be published as journal

- Short Papers (maximum of 4 pages):
  Short papers report on ongoing research projects. They should provide
  overall research methodologies with some results. The work presented
  in short papers are expected to be at a stage of maturity that with
  some additional work can be published as regular papers.

- Poster Papers (maximum of 2 pages):
  Poster papers report on ongoing research projects that are still in
  their infancy (i.e., at very early stages). Such papers tend to provide
  research methodologies without yet concrete results.

Authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them to:
  Submission web site at:  http://american-cse.org/

All submissions must be received by the deadline; submissions must be
in either MS doc or pdf formats (about 6 pages for Regular Research Papers;
about 4 pages for Short Papers; about 2 pages for Poster Papers - the number
of pages include all figures, tables, and references).

Papers should be typeset by using the general typesetting instructions
available at:
(i.e., use of regular Times New Roman, font size of 10, single line spacing,
2-column format). Authors of accepted papers will later receive a more
specific typesetting instructions.

All submissions MUST be original (papers must not have been previously
published or currently being considered by others for publication).
The first page of the paper should include the followings:

- Title of the paper.
- Name, affiliation, postal address, and email address of each author
  (identify the name of the Contact Author).
- Abstract (about 100 words).
- A maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the work
  described in the paper (see the list of topics).
- Write the type of the submission as:
  "Full/Regular Research Papers", "Short Papers", or "Poster Papers".

The actual paper can start from the first page (space permitting).

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by 2 to 4 peers (except for papers
that are philosophical in nature - such papers would be considered
for panel discussions.) Confidentiality of submitted material will be
maintained. Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality,
impact, significance, quality of research, quality of writing, and
contribution to conference program and diversity. Papers whose authors
include one or more members of the program committee will be evaluated
using the double-blinded review process.

The CSCI Conference is committed to encouraging diversity and eliminating
discrimination in both its role as a conference and as a provider of
services. CSCI aims to create a culture that respects and values each
others' differences, that promotes dignity, equality and diversity,
and that encourages individuals to develop and maximize their true
potential. We are committed wherever practicable to organizing a
conference that broadly reflects the international community.

The proceedings will be published by Computer Society's CPS
( http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/home ). Authors of accepted
papers must agree with the standard IEEE's statement in reference to
CPS Copyrights (Intellectual Property Rights):

  "The CSCI conference acknowledges that the IEEE shall at all
   times be the sole owner of all rights in and to the work. The IEEE
   shall have the exclusive right (but not the obligation) to obtain
   and renew copyright registration of, or relating to, any and all
   such works in the name of IEEE or in such other name or names as
   IEEE may elect. This agreement constitutes an assignment to IEEE
   of all rights in and to the work the conference agrees to execute
   and deliver to IEEE, promptly upon request, any documents that IEEE
   may reasonably request to attain and protect IEEE's exclusive rights."

After the conference, selected authors will also be given the opportunity
to have the extended versions of their papers considered for publication
by journals and book publishers (Springer, Elsevier, ...) 175233
