ICCCI 2021 is an international scientific conference for research in the field of Computational Collective Intelligence, to be held on 29 September – 1 October 2021 in Rhodes, Greece.

The aim of this conference is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research in the computer-based methods of collective intelligence and their applications. The scope of ICCCI 2021 includes all topics related with processing data and knowledge from autonomous sources, especially in: collective processing, knowledge integration, data integration, group decision making, multi-criteria decision making, consensus computing, and social networks.

The conference is hosted by the Democritus University of Thrace, Greece and jointly organized by Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Poland in cooperation with IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Computational Collective Intelligence, European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS), University of Piraeus, Greece, and International University-VNU-HCM, Vietnam.

The proceedings of ICCCI 2021 will be published by Springer in series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence LNCS/LNAI.

The conference is organized in a Hybrid mode which allows for both on-site paper presentations and online presentations. The on-site part is the main mode of the hybrid conference. The online part is held for those participants who cannot travel to Rhodes or cannot get Greece visa.

  • How to submit

    Proceedings

    The proceedings of ICCCI 2020 will be published by Springer in series Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence LNCS/LNAI and will be distributed at the conference.

    Paper Preparation

    Language: English
    Format: Springer’s LNCS/LNAI style
    Length: up to 13 pages

    Paper Submission



    When submitting your work please pay close attention to the EasyChair link. It must be:

    https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iccci20210



    Other Requirements

    All contributions should be original and not published elsewhere or intended to be published during the review period.

    Papers are invited from prospective authors with interests on the indicated conference topics.

    Contributions from more applied related fields in industry and commerce are very welcome.

    All accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors who must register for the conference and pay the fee.

    Only personally presented papers can be nominated for the Best Paper competition and considered for publication in an expanded form in special issues for prestigious journals.

    Avoiding Plagiarism and Self-Plagiarism

    The authors are requested to avoid plagiarism and self-plagiarism in their works.

    Your can find in the Internet numerous guidelines on ethical writing, such as a comprehensive guide prepared by Miguel Roig.

    Title
    From Hyper-parametric towards Prototype-based Deep Learning

    Abstract
    Machine Learning (ML) and AI justifiably attract the attention and interest not only of the wider scientific community and industry, but also society and policy makers. However, even the most powerful (in terms of accuracy) algorithms such as deep learning (DL) can give a wrong output, which may be fatal. Due to the hyper-parametric, cumbersome and opaque model used by DL, some authors started to talk about a dystopian “black box” society. Despite the success in this area, the way computers learn is still principally different from the way people acquire new knowledge, recognise objects and make decisions. People do not need a huge amount of annotated data. They learn by example, using similarities to previously acquired prototypes, not by using parametric analytical models. Current ML approaches are focused primarily on accuracy and overlook explainability, the semantic meaning of the internal model representation, reasoning and its link with the problem domain. They also overlook the efforts to collect and label training data and rely on assumptions about the data distribution that are often not satisfied. The ability to detect the unseen and unexpected and start learning this new class/es in real time with no or very little supervision is critically important and is something that no currently existing classifier can offer. The challenge is to fill this gap between high level of accuracy and the semantically meaningful solutions. The most efficient algorithms that have fuelled interest towards ML and AI recently are also computationally very hungry – they require specific hardware accelerators such as GPU, huge amounts of labeled data and time. They produce parameterised models with hundreds of millions of coefficients, which are also impossible to interpret or be manipulated by a human. Once trained, such models are inflexible to new knowledge. They cannot dynamically evolve their internal structure to start recognising new classes. They are good only for what they were originally trained for. They also lack robustness, formal guarantees about their behaviour and explanatory and normative transparency. This makes problematic use of such algorithms in high stake complex problems such as aviation, health, bailing from jail, etc. where the clear rationale for a particular decision is very important and the errors are very costly. All these challenges and identified gaps require a dramatic paradigm shift and a radical new approach. In this talk the speaker will present such a new approach towards the next generation of computationally lean ML and AI algorithms that can learn in real-time using normal CPUs on computers, laptops, smartphones or even be implemented on chip that will change dramatically the way these new technologies are being applied. It is explainable-by-design. It focuses on addressing the open research challenge of developing highly efficient, accurate ML algorithms and AI models that are transparent, interpretable, explainable and fair by design. Such systems are able to self-learn lifelong, and continuously improve without the need for complete re-training, can start learning from few training data samples, explore the data space, detect and learn from unseen data patterns, collaborate with humans or other such algorithms seamlessly.

It is known for its beach resorts, ancient ruins and remnants of its occupation by the Knights of St. John during the Crusades. The Colossus of Rhodes was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The landscape of Rhodes mainly comprises of hills and low mountains, which in their majority are covered with forests. The climate of Rhodes is subtropical and considered very healthy. Refreshing westerly winds moderate the summer heat, while the winter is nearly always mild, with long periods of sunshine.

    Colossus of Rhodes
    One of the Seven Wonders of Ancient World

    The Colossus of Rhodes was a 30 m high statue of Helios, the Greek sun god, built on the island of Rhodes in 280 BC. It was made of bronze and placed at the entrance to the port of Rhodes. It was considered as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The statue was destroyed in 226 BC during an earthquake.
