Computational Intelligence (CI) is new field of research. It is a part of Artificial Intelligence (AI). CI is the study of adaptive mechanisms to enable or facilitate intelligent behavior in complex and changing environments. In generally a CI includes artificial neural networks, evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence and fuzzy systems. Today a lot of researches use these concepts of CI to solve many real-world problems in different fields. Among these fields we can find data analysis, communication, robotics, etc. For example, in the problem of clustering and classification of big data, some researchers used the neural networks, evolutionary algorithms and fuzzy logic to find clusters.

One of the major challenges nowadays in Computational Mechanics is to go to real-scale real-size real-time while getting best-estimated solutions. For industrial purposes, modeling the complexity in the context of High Performance Computing tends to generate huge volumes of data whose analysis, treatment and storage imply new requirements in terms of human-compatible algorithm developments and resource uses. Several examples in the field of fluid mechanics and fluid structure interaction are used to illustrate advanced numerical methods useful for design in the context of industrial studies.

Economics, Management and Finance always involve some degrees of Uncertainty. These to some extent can be reduced using Mathematica-Statistical Models. The aim of this Symposium will be the application of Mathematical modelling of Economics, Managements, and Finance, then converting to the Statistical models or generally Econometric Model to estimate the effective parameters. This would help the decision makers to some extent overcome uncertainty for wise decision making.

The goal of the Symposium is to bring together all the researchers working in various fields of Mathematics, Mathematical Physics-Engineering and related areas such as Analysis, Non-linear Analysis, Integral transforms, Number Theory, p-adic Analysis and Applied Algebra, Special Functions, q-analysis and Discrete Mathematics, Probability and Statistics, Mathematical Physics and their applications. Our main aim is also to bring together theoretical, numerical and apply analyst, number theorists, (quantum) physicist working in the areas of generating functions of the special numbers and polynomials and their applications. All of the participants will likely lead to significant uncover new connections on these fields which are special numbers and polynomials, and also the family of zeta functions and L-functions.
