NCAA 2022 : 2022 International Conference on Neural Computing for Advanced Applications (NCAA 2022)
Call For Papers
NCAA is an annual international neural computing conference, which showcases state-of-the-art R&D activities in neural computing systems and their industrial and engineering applications. It provides a forum for technical presentations and discussions among neural computing researchers, developers and users from academia, business and industry.
The 2022 NCAA will be held in Jinan, China on July 8-10, 2022. China, a country which has a long history of 5000 years, is the perfect venue for addressing contemporary neural computing issues as new AI-related technical trends have been arising out of China’s top-notch IT infrastructure and cultural dynamicity. Jinan, alternately romanized as Tsinan, is the capital of Shandong province in Eastern China. With a population of 9.2 million (including Laiwu), it is the second-largest city in Shandong after Qingdao. The area of present-day Jinan has played an important role in the history of the region from the earliest beginnings of civilization and has evolved into a major national administrative, economic, and transportation hub. The city has held sub-provincial administrative status since 1994. Jinan is often called the “Spring City” for its famous 72 artesian springs.

Authors should submit papers reporting original work that are currently not under review or published elsewhere. Accepted full papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Submissions for full papers must be no less than 12 pages and not exceed 15 pages (including citations) in CCIS (Communications in Computer and Information Science) format. We encourage authors to cite related work comprehensively, and when citing conference papers please also consider to cite their extended journal versions if applicable.
NCAA 2022 will employ double-blind reviewing process, every research paper submitted to NCAA 2022 will undergo a “double-blind” reviewing process: the PC members and referees who review the paper will not know the identity of the authors. To ensure anonymity of authorship, authors must prepare their manuscript as follows:
Author’s names and affiliations must not appear on the title page or elsewhere in the paper.
Funding sources must not be acknowledged on the title page or elsewhere in the paper.
Research group members, or other colleagues or collaborators, must not be acknowledged anywhere in the paper.
Source file naming must also be done with care, to avoid identifying the author’s names in the paper’s associated metadata. For example, if your name is Jane Smith and you submit a PDF file generated from a .dvi file called Jane-Smith.dvi, your authorship could be inferred by looking into the PDF file.
It is the responsibility of authors to do their very best to preserve anonymity. Papers that do not follow the guidelines here, or otherwise potentially reveal the identity of the authors, are subject to immediate rejection. Because of the double blind review policy, the submission of an extended version of a short paper which has published elsewhere is strongly discouraged in NCAA 2022.
Please use one of the following templates for the CCIS (Communications in Computer and Information Science) format:
LaTeX2e Proceedings Templates (zip)
Microsoft Word Proceedings Templates (zip)
Microsoft Word 2003 Proceedings Templates (zip)
Any submitted paper violating the length, file type, or formatting requirements will be rejected without review. For any problems with the submission system, please contact the PC co-chairs directly.
Submission URL: TBD
Authors must select one of above-mentioned technical tracks(/topics) to submit their papers in easychair system. Submitted papers will undergo a double-blind peer review process, coordinated by the International Program Committee.
The Program Chairs are soliciting contributed technical papers for presentation at the Conference and publication in the Conference Proceedings by Springer Verlag in the CCIS. All accepted regular papers will be submitted to Springer Verlag for EI and ISTP indexing. Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit their extended technical papers to several SCI journals for a possible publication after ordinary review process, such as Neural Computing & Applications (NCA) (pending, impact factor: 4.774), Memetic Computing(pending, impact factor: 3.860), Neurocomputing (pending, impact factor: 4.438) and IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics (pending, impact factor: 9.112).
