Travel Grants


The IEEE CIS will offer a limited number of travel grants for Students and Researchers from Developing Countries who are presenting a paper at IEEE CIS-sponsored conferences. One application system will be used. Both IEEE CIS Student Members and Graduate Student Members can benefit from the IEEE CIS Outstanding Student Paper Travel Grant award. Students and Researchers from Developing Countries must have both IEEE and IEEE CIS memberships (CIS is listed as an optional society membership under IEEE). If you do not currently have membership, then you must apply before submitting your application.

Past history of the IEEE CIS travel grants, as well as more information, can be viewed at the travel grants webpage.

To apply for the support one must first register in the Grant Application System at http://www.ieee-cis.org/gas/. Submissions are to be entered into the Grant Application system. Paper and email applications will not be accepted. Please note the following date for submission, review, and notification of travel grants:

- Submission of applications: May 10, 2013 - May 31, 2013
- Review of the applications: June 1, 2013 - June 16, 2103
- Notification of the recipients: June 17, 2013

Only complete applications from eligible student members and members will be accepted. Please, note that there is no need to send proof of IEEE and IEEE CIS membership as membership will be verified through the IEEE member databases.

The student applicants will be required to present proof of university attendance documentation at the conference (this is not a student card; please see the website for details).
Travel grant amounts have not been determined yet. See previous travel grant results for an indication of possible travel grant amounts. If you have any questions please contact Dr. Manuel Roveri.

Do not jeopardize the publication of your work in the proceedings! An accepted paper will be published in the proceedings only if the full-fee registration payment for one of the authors is received and correctly processed by May 31, 2013 - no exceptions. Only member or non-member fees are allowed to cover the publication of an accepted paper. Student registration fees cannot be used to guarantee the publication of an accepted paper. If the author registering to cover the paper publication is a student, he has to pay the appropriate member or non-member fee. Members to whom the society bylaws grant special discounts (e.g., Life members of the IEEE) cannot use the discounted rates to cover the publication of an accepted paper: they have to pay the member fee.

One author registration will cover the publication expenses of only one accepted paper. For each additional accepted paper associated to the same registration, a 50 US$ printing contribution will be charged. In the case no registration has been received and correctly processed to cover the paper publication, the conference organizers will contact the authors before the paper is removed from the proceedings.

To qualify for member rates, the membership number must be provided in the registration form. No exception.

Welcome to CIVEMSA 2013


To increase the quality of life and better support the economical development, we often appreciate adaptable solutions, simple interfaces, and virtual views for enhanced operation. The wide and increasing needs of adaptable and flexible solutions for many industrial, environmental, engineering, educational, entertainment, and biomedical applications point out the importance of using design methodologies and implementation technologies with high ability of adaptation and evolution.  Computational intelligence is one of the most relevant answers to such needs. Virtual environments and human-computer interfaces are essential to effectively understand the operating environment and support interactive applications. On the other hand, accuracy and uncertainty issues as well as suited data acquisition systems must be carefully considered in these applications since the quality of the solution greatly relies on them.  Up to now, analysis has been performed mainly to understand the underlying technologies and methodologies, but without any specific focus on the mandatory need of a quantitative assessment and a metrological analysis.  Measurement science and technologies are vital to ensure the correct and effective use of computational intelligence and virtual technologies in real environments. IEEE CIVEMSA inherits and merge the decennial success of IEEE CIMSA and IEEE VECIMS: this new conference series will continue the exciting interdisciplinary experience of the previous editions by filling this gap in knowledge and practice.

Papers are solicited on all aspects of computational intelligence, human-computer interaction technologies, and virtual environments for measurement systems and the related applications, from the points of view of both theory and practice.  This includes, but is not limited to, the following topics with specific emphasis on the computational intelligence and measurement aspects: intelligent measurement systems; human-computer interaction; augmented and virtual reality; accuracy and precision of neural/fuzzy components and virtual environments; perception, neurodinamics, neurophysiology, psychophysics; multimodal sensing; multimodal (visual, haptic, audio, etc) virtual environments; sensors and displays; calibration; multi-sensor data fusion and intelligent sensor fusion; intelligent monitoring and control systems; neural and fuzzy technologies for identification, prediction, and control of complex dynamic systems; evolutionary monitoring and control; evolutionary techniques for optimization and logistics; neural and fuzzy signal/image processing for industrial, environmental and domotic applications; neural and fuzzy signal/image processing for entertainment and educational applications; image understanding and recognition; object modeling; object and system model validation; virtual reality languages; computational intelligence for robotics and vision; computational intelligence for medical and bioengineering applications; computational intelligence for entertainment and educational applications; collaborative distributed virtual environments; model-based telecommunications and telecontrol; hybrid systems; fuzzy and neural components for embedded systems; hardware implementation of neural and fuzzy systems for measurements; neural, fuzzy and genetic/evolutionary algorithms for system optimization and calibration; neural and fuzzy techniques for system diagnosis; reliability of fuzzy and neural components; fault tolerance and testing in fuzzy and neural components; neural and fuzzy techniques for quality measurement; standards.
