Computer games not only offer a killer application for computational intelligence (CI), machine learning and search but also provide a compelling domain where problem solving and decision making meet artifact creation; both of which can be experienced via a highly immersive, complex and rich interaction.

Additionally, methods from computational intelligence promise to have a big impact on game technology and development, assisting designers and developers and enabling new types of computer games.

The Computational Intelligence and Games (CIG) conference series brings together leading researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss recent advances and explore future directions in this field. The annual IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games (IEEE CIG) is one of the premier international conferences in the field of computational intelligence and games.
