The 1999 IEEE Canadian Conference on Electrical and computer Engineering (CCECE’99) was held from May 9 to 12, 1999, at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton. The conference was a great success with over 380 papers presented and more than 400 peoples from 38 different countries presenting their recent research results. The area of Computational Intelligence was one of the vivid pursuits presented at the conference. Subsequently, we have been invited by the Editors-in-Chief of the Journal of Advanced Computational Intelligence to prepare a Special Issue of the Journal CCECE’99 conference. After a careful and strict peer review process, we have chosen six papers to be included in this special issue. They are selected from more than 20 papers submitted to this special issue, which are extended versions of the papers presented at the CCECE’99 conference in the areas of advanced computational intelligence. The papers fully reflect the breadth and diversity of conceptual and algorithmic facets of Computational Intelligence along with a spectrum of applications. We thank the authors and reviewers for doing an excellent job. We are grateful to Kaoru Hirota and Toshio Fukuda for making this selection of papers a part of the journal. We do hope the readers will enjoy this issue.
