COVERING THE EXPENSES FOR PAPER PUBLICATION

Do not jeopardize the publication of your work in the proceedings! An accepted paper will be published in the proceedings only if the full-fee registration payment for one of the authors is received and correctly processed by June 1, 2012 - no exceptions. Only member or non-member fees are allowed to cover the publication of an accepted paper. Student registration fees cannot be used to guarantee the publication of an accepted paper. If the author registering to cover the paper publication is a student, he has to pay the appropriate member or non-member fee. Members to whom the society bylaws grant special discounts (e.g., Life members of the IEEE) cannot use the discounted rates to cover the publication of an accepted paper: they have to pay the member fee.

One author registration will cover the publication expenses of only one accepted paper. For each additional accepted paper associated to the same registration, a 50 US$ printing contribution will be charged. In the case no registration has been received and correctly processed to cover the paper publication, the conference organizers will contact the authors before the paper is removed from the proceedings.

To qualify for member rates, the membership number must be provided in the registration form. No exception.

REGISTRATION PROBLEMS AND FURTHER INFORMATION

For further information concerning your registration, please, contact only the CIMSA Administrator:

Welcome to CIMSA 2012

Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society Organized by the IEEE CIS ISATC – Task Force on Intelligent Measurement Systems,  the IEEE IMS TC-22 on Intelligent Measurement Systems, and the IEEE IMS TC-30 on Security and Contraband Detection


 

The wide and increasing needs of adaptable and flexible solutions for many industrial, environmental, and engineering applications point out the importance of using design methodologies and implementation technologies with high ability of adaptation and evolution.  Soft computing is one of the most relevant answers to such needs: neural networks, fuzzy logic, and genetic/evolutionary algorithms are fundamental keys to tackle these difficult problems.  On the other hand, accuracy and uncertainty issues as well as suited data acquisition systems must be carefully considered in these applications since the quality of the solution greatly relies on them.  Up to now, analysis and experiments have been performed by scientists and practitioners mainly to understand the underlying technologies and methodologies, but without any specific focus on the mandatory need of a quantitative assessment and a metrological analysis.  Measurement science and technologies are vital to ensure the correct and effective use of soft computing technologies in real environments.  CIMSA 2012 will continue the exciting experience of the previous editions by filling this gap in knowledge and practice, by focusing on the quantitative aspect of measurement issues for industrial, environmental, and engineering applications.

Papers are solicited on all aspects of computational intelligence technologies for measurement systems and the related applications, from the points of view of both theory and practice.  This includes but is not limited to: intelligent measurement systems; accuracy and precision of neural and fuzzy components; intelligent sensor fusion; intelligent monitoring and control systems; neural and fuzzy technologies for identification, prediction, and control of complex dynamic systems; evolutionary monitoring and control; neural and fuzzy signal/image processing for industrial and environmental applications; image understanding and recognition; soft-computing technologies for robotics and vision; soft computing technologies for medical and bioengineering applications; hybrid systems; fuzzy and neural components for embedded systems; hardware implementation of neural and fuzzy systems for measurements; neural, fuzzy and genetic/evolutionary algorithms for system optimization and calibration; neural and fuzzy diagnosis of components and systems; reliability of fuzzy and neural components; fault tolerance and testing in fuzzy and neural components; neural and fuzzy techniques for quality measurement.


Joint VECIMS 2012 and CIMSA 2012 Special sessions (when submitting a paper, you may indicate the special session preferred):

•    Multimodal virtual environments, simulation and measurement in medical physics
•    Food testing and security

Additionally, there will be a joint VECIMS 2012 and CIMSA 2012 best student paper award.
