This book constitutes the proceedings of the second International Workshop on Advanced Computational Intelligence (IWACI 2009), with a sequel of IWACI 2008 successfully held in Macao, China. IWACI 2009 provided a high-level international forum for scientists, engineers, and educators to present state-of-the-art research in computational intelligence and related fields. Over the past decades, computational intelligence community has witnessed t- mendous efforts and developments in all aspects of theoretical foundations, archit- tures and network organizations, modelling and simulation, empirical study, as well as a wide range of applications across different domains. IWACI 2009 provided a great platform for the community to share their latest research results, discuss critical future research directions, stimulate innovative research ideas, as well as facilitate inter- tional multidisciplinary collaborations.
IWACI 2009 received 146 submissions from about 373 authors in 26 countries and regions (Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Chile, Hong Kong, India, Islamic Republic of Iran, Japan, Jordan, Macao, Malaysia, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Republic of Korea, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, UK, USA, Ve- zuela, Vietnam, and Yemen) across six continents (Asia, Europe, North America, South America, Africa, and Oceania). Based on the rigorous peer reviews by the Program Committee members, 52 high-quality papers were selected for publication in this book, with an acceptance rate of 36.3%. These papers cover major topics of the theoretical research, empirical study, and applications of computational intelligence.
