Given the rapidly changing and increasingly complex nature of global security, we continue to witness a remarkable interest within the security and defense communities in novel, adaptive and resilient techniques that can cope with the challenging problems arising in this domain. These challenges are brought forth not only by the overwhelming amount of data reported by a plethora of sensing and tracking modalities, but by the emergence of innovative classes of decentralized, mass-scale communication protocols and connectivity frameworks such as cloud computing, vehicular networks and the Internet of Things. Realizing that traditional techniques have left many important problems unsolved, and in some cases, not addressed, further efforts have to be undertaken in the quest for algorithms and methodologies that can detect and easily adapt to emerging threats.


The purpose of this Special Session is to provide a forum for the exchange and discussion of current solutions in Computational Intelligence (e.g., neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, and other emerging learning or optimization techniques) as applied to security, surveillance and defense problems. High-quality technical papers addressing research challenges in these areas are solicited. Papers should present original work validated via analysis, simulation or experimentation, including but not limited to the following topics:

Advanced Architectures for Defense Operations
- Multi-Sensor Data Fusion
- Employment of Autonomous Vehicles
- Intelligence Gathering and Exploitation
- Mine Detection
- Situation Assessment
- Automatic Target Recognition
- Mission Weapon Pairing and Assignment
- Sensor Cueing and Tasking

Modeling and Simulation of Defense Operations
- Logistics Support
- Mission Planning and Execution
- Resource Management
- Course of Action Generation
- Models for War Games
- Multi-Agent Based Simulation
- Strategic Planning

Security Applications
- Surveillance
- Human Modeling: Behavior, Emotion, Motion
- Suspect Behavior Profiling
- Automated Handling of Dangerous Situations or People
- Stationary or Mobile Object Detection, Recognition and Classification
- Intrusion Detection Systems
- Cyber-Security
- Air, Maritime & Land Security
- Network Security, Biometrics Security and Authentication Technologies

Submission Guidelines

As with previous years, this is a hybrid special session, meaning that it welcomes papers from all three WCCI conferences (IJCNN, FUZZ-IEEE and CEC). However, when submitting your paper, you must choose the CEC 2014 track ( and in the "Main Topic" you must specify "SS39. EC39: Computational Intelligence for Security, Surveillance and Defence (CISSD)". Each accepted paper will be included in the main WCCI 2014 conference proceedings.

Please follow the manuscript style information and templates of regular IEEE WCCI 2014 papers, as described in

When submitting your manuscript, please ensure to follow these steps:
1. Go to the CEC 2014 conference submission website (
3. Select the Special Session name in the Main Research topic dropdown list;
4. Fill out the input fields, upload the PDF file and finalize the submission by January 20, 2014.

Important Dates:

* Paper submission deadline: January 20, 2014 (extended and firm)

* Acceptance notification deadline: March 15, 2014

* Camera-ready submission deadline: April 15, 2014
