This special session during ICCS deals with the problem of Collective Intelligence, which is most often understood as an AI sub-field dealing with soft computing methods which enable making group decisions or processing knowledge among autonomous units acting in distributed environments. Web-based systems, social networks and multi-agent systems very often need these tools for working out consistent knowledge states, resolving conflicts and making decisions, which is an important part of modern and future computing.

The session is organized by the IEEE Computational Collective Intelligence technical committee, but welcomes all interested parties. The goal is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research in the computer-based methods of collective intelligence and their applications in (but not limited to) such fields as semantic web, social networks and multi-agent systems.
