Synopses & Reviews
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th International Work-Conference on Artificial Neural Networks, IWANN 2009, held in Salamanca, Spain in June 2009. The 167 revised full papers presented together with 3 invited lectures were carefully reviewed and selected from over 230 submissions. The papers are organized in thematic sections on theoretical foundations and models; learning and adaptation; self-organizing networks, methods and applications; fuzzy systems; evolutionary computation and genetic algoritms; pattern recognition; formal languages in linguistics; agents and multi-agent on intelligent systems; brain-computer interfaces (bci); multiobjetive optimization; robotics; bioinformatics; biomedical applications; ambient assisted living (aal) and ambient intelligence (ai); other applications.
This volume (II) contains all publications accepted for the symposiums and workshops held in parallel with the 10th International Work-Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (IWANN 2009), covering a wide spectrum of technological areas such as distributed computing, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, soft computing and ambient-assisted living: - DCAI 2009 (International Symposium on Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence), covering artificial intelligence and its applications in distributed environments, such as the Internet, electronic commerce, mobile communi- tions, wireless devices, distributed computing, and so on. This event accepted a total of 96 submissions selected from a submission pool of 157 papers, from 12 different countries. - IWAAL 2009 (International Workshop of Ambient-Assisted Living), covering solutions aimed at increasing the quality of life, safety and health problems of elderly and disabled people by means of technology. This event accepted a - tal of 42 submissions selected from a submission pool of 78 papers, from 9 d- ferent countries. - IWPACBB 2009 (Third International Workshop on Practical Applications of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics), covering computational biology and bioinformatics as a possibility for knowledge discovery, modelling and - timization tasks, aiming at the development of computational models so that the response of biological complex systems to any perturbation can be p- dicted. This event accepted a total of 39 submissions selected from a subm- sion pool of 75 papers, from 6 different countries.
