This special issue contains 14 papers selected from the first International Symposium on Computational Intelligence and Industrial Applications (ISCIIA’04), held in Haikou, China, December 20-24, 2004. Of the 82 papers from 8 countries submitted to the symposium, 62 were accepted for the proceedings. Based on reviewer’s recommendations and guest editor’s careful consideration, the authors of 14 papers have revised and extended their symposium papers for this issue. Computational intelligence is the study of the design of “intelligent” systems, which is flexible in changing environments and changing goals with uncertainty, and covers artificial intelligence, neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, and hybrid systems. The objective of this special issue is to reveal current challenges, research topics, and technology solutions critical to algorithms and applications involving computational intelligence. These 14 papers cover such important research areas as neural networks, image processing, control, financial engineering, robotics, and related technologies in computational intelligence. We believe that the information in this issue will become a valuable new resource for the computational intelligence community. We thank the authors and referees whose selfless work and valuable comments have made this special issue possible and improved the overall quality of the papers.
