The 13th Annual Workshop on Computational Intelligence (UKCI 2013) will be hosted by the University of Surrey, from September 9-11, 2013. UKCI is the premier UK and Ireland event for presenting leading research on all aspects of computational intelligence.
The workshop aims to provide a forum for academic researchers to share research progresses and discuss emerging topics and future directions in the field of computational intelligence. Equally important, this workshop intends to demonstrate successful case studies, identify challenges and bridge the gap between theory and practice in applying computational intelligence to solving real-world problems. The workshop will consist of regular sessions, special sessions and keynote talks from leading researchers in the field of computational intelligence.
As requested by many colleagues, the submission deadline of UKCI 2013 has been extended to 30 May 2013. You are very much welcome to submit a paper to UKCI 2013. For further information, please refer to the UKCI 2013 webpage.

The Department is delighted to announce that Mr Nikolaos Kaklanis had a successful PhD viva on 9 May 2013, with only minor corrections required. Nikolaos' thesis focuses on virtual user and task modelling, supported by tools, to increase accessibility to a range of products for the disabled and the elderly. The external examiner was Professor Jean Vanderdonckt, University of Louvain, Belgium, and Head of the Louvain Interaction Laboratory, and the internal was Dr Bogdan Vrusias. Nikolaos was a collaborative student with the Institute of Telematics and Informatics (ITI), Greece, co-supervised by Dr Sotiris Moschoyiannis of the Department and Dr Dimitris Tzovaras from ITI.
