Given the current global security environment, there has been increased interest within the security and defense communities in novel techniques for solving challenging problems. The genesis of this interest lies in the fact that repeated attempts of using traditional techniques have left many important problems unsolved, and in some cases, not addressed. New problems have emerged within the broad areas of security and defense that are difficult to tackle with conventional methods, thus requiring new techniques for detecting and adapting to emerging threats.
The purpose of the symposium is to present current and ongoing efforts in computational intelligence (e.g., neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, and other emerging learning or optimization techniques) as applied to security and defense problems.
This symposium aims at publishing high-quality research efforts rooted in Computational Intelligence as applied to defense and security problems. First-class contributions addressing research challenges in these areas and their CI-based solutions (i.e., neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, rough sets, granular computing, and other emerging learning or optimization techniques) are solicited.

The venue for the 2016 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence is the Royal Olympic Hotel (Five-Star) . http://www.royalolympic.com
Map and directions: http://www.royalolympic.com/athens_center_hotel
The Royal Olympic is not just one of the five star hotels in Athens.
There are many nice five star hotels in the centre of Athens.
There are few hotels in the world though, that have the privilege to be in front of important monuments. There are even fewer that offer their guests the opportunity to admire from the hotel, simultaneously, a number of Masterpieces.
From the Royal Olympic you have excellent view to The Temple of Zeus, The Acropolis, The Hadrian's Gate, The Marble Stadium and is infront of the National Garden.
Plaka (Old Town) is just across the road.
You can easily walk to all the above sites and if you wish to take the Underground, the Bus or the Tram they are all next to the Hotel.
You are exactly at the Centre of Historical Athens!
Here are a few of Athens many attractions.
To be announced later.
