      Workshop on Computational Intelligence Applied to Business
      Jornada sobre Inteligencia Computacional Aplicada al Negocio

      - JICAN2008 -
      Instituto Tecnologico de Informatica
      Universidad Politecnica de Valencia, Spain

      September 25 2008

      (+ complementary seminar on September 26)

      http://jican.iti.upv.es


      The Instituto Tecnologico de Informatica (ITI) organises the Workshop
      on Computational Intelligence Applied to Business, JICAN2008. Its
      purpose is twofold: on the one hand, to introduce this technology
      among companies in any area; on the other, to show actual fields of
      application to researchers in academia.

      To achieve this we count on the participation of national and
      international experts in Computational Intelligence, who will explain
      the more relevant current tendencies in the area.

      With this conference, the audience is expected to acquire a global
      vision of the methodology that will help them introducing it in their
      own companies.

      With the support of the Spanish Chapter of IEEE-Computational
      Intelligence Society.

      PLEASE NOTE: The languages of the Workshop are English and Spanish.
      Two-way simultaneous translation will be provided to those who require it.

      Objectives
      ----------
      The Workshop aims to introduce the key concepts in the field of
      Computational Intelligence (CI) in a practical manner and with
      particular emphasis in the applications in the industrial and
      financial areas.

      For this we will count on four outstanding keynote speakers plus ITI's
      expert personnel, who will provide a basis of the different
      methodologies in CI and a number of practical applications in which CI
      was successfully employed.

      Who should attend?
      ------------------
      The workshop is aimed at :

      - Companies: Project managers or directors (technical and non
      technical) who, as part of their work, face complex problems related
      to optimisation, prediction and decision making.

      - Academia: Researchers and students interested in the practical
      application of Computational Intelligence.
