                  2014 IEEE CIS/REGIM-Lab Summer School on
              Computational Intelligence – Theory and Applications
                                (SS-CITA 2014)
            11-14, August 2014, Ramada Plaza Tunis Hotel, Tunisia

Sponsors: IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and REGIM-Lab.
Registration: http://cita.regim.org/registration/

The main goal of the summer school is to provide undergraduate students,
M.Sc. or PhD students, academics, and engineers from industry with hands-on
knowledge on sophisticated Computational Intelligence (CI) algorithms and
methods, most recent advances and developments in CI research, and
substantial examples of successful CI applications to solving complex
real-world problems. The school includes theoretical and practical sessions.

The choice of such topic is based on the growing attention paid towards
intelligent systems. The school aims also to discuss the challenges and to
strengthen the connection between academia and industry in the area of
Computational Intelligence.

The program of the school includes theoretical and practical talks during
four days from 11 to 14 August 2014. It also includes poster session. All
students have to present their ideas / works in a poster. A best poster
award will be announced in the closing session.
