From October 24 to 29, 2011, the Sénart Fontainebleau Institute of Technology of Paris-Est Créteil Val de Marne (UPEC) University will be hosting two international symposiums: IJCCI, the International Joint Conference on Computational Intelligence, and IC3K, the International Conference on Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management. Drawing on the success of the two previous symposiums (on Madeira Island, Portugal in 2009 and in Valencia, Spain in 2008), the INSTICC (Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication), which organizes the events, selected for the Sénart based branch of the LISSI (Laboratory of Images, Signals and Intelligent Systems) as the venue for the third symposium where more than 350 researchers from sixty different countries and industry operators are expected.
For more than 15 years, the Machines and Intelligent Systems team headed by Professor Kurosh Madani at LISSI and based on the UPEC Sénart campus, has been rolling out numerous joint endeavors with private and institutional partners (automated assistance for production quality control for SAGEM, artificial vision for forest fire monitoring and prevention with CNRS and Civil Defense, collective intelligence robotics for future logistics). LISSI is also involved in European projects alongside small businesses and large companies, such as SISINE (Systèmes Intégrés pour la Simulation et Ingénierie de la Négociation, integrated systems for negotiation simulation and engineering) in partnership with the Italian National Research Center (CNR di Roma), Italian companies Telecom Italia, Glaux srl, Mediazioni and Xiwrite, Danish Robotics, Slovakian PDCS and Polish ITTI. For the small Sénart based businesses and industries, both symposiums will be an opportunity to forge new partnerships.
