Mission of the HIS2008 Industrial & Exhibition Track

Hybrid Intelligent Systems are gaining more attention as an important research topic of R+D of many industries world-wide. Industries using techniques from Soft computing, Artificial Intelligence, Multi-agents have increased their benefits and effectiveness in supporting the development of innovative products. During the last years new research topics, such as Intelligent Internet Modeling, Communication and Networking, Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Intelligent Data mining, Intelligent Business Information Systems, Intelligent eLearning systems, etc. are becoming important to the research community as well as to companies. Moreover, hybridization of intelligent systems is a promising research field of computational intelligence focusing on synergistic combinations of multiple approaches to develop the next generation of intelligent systems, which are have a positive impact on R+D of companies.

8th Hybrid Intelligence Conference to be held in Barcelona is committed to improve the communication between the research community and the industry with the objective to shorten the gap between the two communities. The aim is to benefit from HIS2008 as a joint forum for both academic and industry research communities. HIS2008 will thus serve as a platform, where research and industry can mutually benefit. Companies are thus encouraged to present and discuss their systems, software, products, etc. in the area of HIS as well as to express their needs and interest in recent trends of HIS.
