Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, DBLP, Semantic Scholar, EI and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

Ever since OpenAI introduced ChatGPT, a large language model that utilizes a deep neural network architecture known as ‘transformer,’ debates on the power and peril of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) among researchers, industrialists and policy makers have been fervent and multifaceted. Unlike traditional AI systems that are primarily designed for recognition and classification tasks, GenAI models mimic human creativity by utilizing complex mathematical frameworks and neural networks that learn from existing data to synthesize novel content that bears resemblance to the original data.

This Special Session discusses the most recent advances in GenAI from a cross-disciplinary perspective, encompassing theory, analysis, methods and applications. Contributions are solicited in all aspects of evolutionary, fuzzy, neural, and cognitive computations relevant to GenAI.
