The ICAIS'14 conference aims at bringing together international researchers, developers and practitioners from different horizons to discuss the latest advances in system learning and adaptation.
ICAIS'14 will serve as a space to present the current state of the art but also future research avenues of this thematic. Topics of the conference cover three aspects: Algorithms & theories of adaptation and learning, Adaptation issues in Software & System Engineering, Real- world Applications.  ICAIS'14 will feature contributed papers as well as world-renowned guest speakers (see webpage), interactive breakout sessions, and instructional workshops.
