Call for Papers

On behalf of the IEEE WCCI 2022 Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the bi-annual IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (IEEE WCCI), which is the largest technical event in the field of computational intelligence. The IEEE WCCI 2022 will host three conferences: The 2022 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2022 – co-sponsored by International Neural Network Society – INNS), the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2020), and the 2022 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2020) under one roof. It encourages cross-fertilization of ideas among the three big areas and provides a forum for intellectuals from all over the world to discuss and present their research findings on computational intelligence.

IEEE WCCI 2022 will be held in Padua, Italy, one of the most charming and dynamic towns in Italy. It is located in the Veneto region, in Northern Italy. The historical center boasts a wealth of medieval, renaissance and modern architecture. Here a fascinating mix of historic and new, of centuries-old traditions and metropolitan rhythms creates a unique atmosphere. The medieval palaces, churches and cobbled streets emanate a sense of history. Padua features rich historical and cultural attractions, such as “Prato della Valle”, the largest square in Europe; the famous Scrovegni Chapel painted by Giotto; the Botanical Garden that is a UNESCO Word Heritage; the University of Padua, that is the second oldest university in Italy (1222) celebrating, in 2022, 800 years of history.

IEEE Computational Intelligence Society has maintained its position as a leader of journals in computational intelligence. CIS journals sustained their status as premier scholarly publications, earning high rankings in the Journal Citation Report by Thomson Reuters.
