1st International Conference on Intelligent Computing & Optimization 2018 – ICO 2018

Date: October 04–05, 2018
Venue: Hard Rock Hotel Pattaya, Thailand

Innovative optimization approaches have attracted many research scientists, decision makers, managers, executives, engineers, academicians, officers and practicing researchers in recent years as powerful intelligent computational techniques for solving several complex real-world problems. The International Conference on Intelligent Computing and Optimization (ICO2018) highlights the latest research innovations and applications of algorithms designed for optimization applications within the fields of Science, Computer Science, Engineering, Information Technology, Management, Finance and Economics. Focusing on a variety of methods and systems as well as practical examples, this conference is a significant resource for post graduate-level students, decision makers, and researchers in both public and private sectors who are seeking research-based methods for modelling uncertain and unpredictable real-world problems.

All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through Springer-Link Digital Library, one of the world’s largest scientific libraries.
