Call For Papers

**** Scope ****

The role of intelligent systems in the information technology context is well established. This approach allows computational systems to incorporate aspects usually associated with intelligent human behaviour, such as perception, reasoning, learning, evolution, adaptation, autonomy, social interaction and pro-activity. Historically speaking, this is one of the main focuses of interest in Artificial Intelligence. However, the dynamic contemporary world has turned such characteristics a requirement in virtually every information system. As time evolves and given the fast technological development, intelligent systems are becoming even more feasible as they take part in our daily lives. Additionally, their great potential of application in different knowledge areas and sectors of the society turns its development even more interdisciplinary, with contributions from many different areas, not only engineering, computer science and informatics, but also from human and social sciences.

This workshop is aimed at building an adequate forum for the discussion of the many aspects related to the creation and development of intelligent systems, both from a theoretical perspective and from the practical exemplification of their potential applications. We intend to gather the scientific community, industry and society to discuss on the state-of-the-art models and architectures, as well as on paradigms and frontiers that motivate much of the advance of intelligent systems. Areas such as Artificial Intelligence, computing theories and models of the human cognition, knowledge representation and engineering, information infrastructure and distributed intelligent systems on the Web are some of the areas to be explored and deepen in this workshop.

**** Topics of Interest ****

The topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to the following areas:

• Artificial Intelligence
• Agent technology and multi-agent systems
• Agreement Technologies
• Cognitive and adaptive robotics
• Knowledge-based systems
• Machine learning
• Electronic Commerce
• Adaptive business intelligence
• Semantic Web and Ontologies
• Information retrieval
• Data and knowledge engineering
• Knowledge discovery from databases
• Data mining and OLAP
• Human-Computer Interaction
• Ubiquitous computing and mobile systems
• Service oriented architectures
• Expert and decision support systems
• Intelligent entertainment systems
• Evolutionary computing and other bio-inspired models

**** Paper Submission and Formatting Guidelines ****

We invite prospective authors to submit their contributions, not yet published, reporting on either work under development or concluded projects about theoretical aspects or practical applications related to the topics of the workshop. Contributions can be submitted in one of three formats: full paper (6 pages), short paper (4 pages), or poster (2 pages).

The paper preparation must follow the formatting rules of the Conference (, and should be written either in Portuguese, in Spanish, or in English. All contributions must be submitted in PDF format, through the EasyChair platform ( However the final version for publication must be saved in Word format. At least three members from the workshop’s Programme Committee will assess and comment on each submission, following a double “blind-review” process. Therefore, authors should take special care to delete their names and affiliation from the paper during the reviewing phase, as well as obfuscate any other references in the text that can possibly identify them.

**** Publication ****

Regardless of the type of submission, the Workshop’s Programme Committee may suggest papers to be accepted as full-paper (6 pages), short-paper (4 pages) or poster (2 pages). Full papers will be published in both book and CD formats, with an ISBN. Short papers, poster papers and company papers will be published in CD only, with an ISBN. Published full papers will be sent to EBSCO, EI, IEEE XPlore, INSPEC, ISI and SCOPUS. Published short papers will be sent to EBSCO, EI, IEEE XPlore, INSPEC and SCOPUS. Poster papers will be sent to EBSCO and EI-Compendex. Detailed and up-to-date information may be found at CISTI 2015 website
