Call For Papers

The International Conference on Intelligent Data Engineering and Automated Learning (IDEAL) is an annual international conference dedicated to emerging and challenging topics in intelligent data analysis, data mining and their associated learning systems and paradigms. Its core themes include: the Big Data challenges, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Information Retrieval and Management, Bio- and Neuro-Informatics, Bio-Inspired Models (including Neural Networks, Evolutionary Computation and Swarm Intelligence), Agents and Hybrid Intelligent Systems, and Real-world Applications of Intelligent Techniques. Other related and emerging themes and topics are also welcome.

Potential session/workshop organizers are invited to enlist potential papers in a cohesive topic for their special session(s)/workshops. Proposals and enquiries can be sent to the Programme Co-Chair, Frank Klawonn( ).More details are on the next page or can be found on the conference website

Instructions for Authors

Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts (in pdf format) written in English by the deadline via the conference online submission system (available in due time). All submissions will be refereed by experts in the field based on originality, significance, quality and clarity. All contributions must be original, should not have been published elsewhere and must not be submitted elsewhere during the review period. Papers should not exceed 8 pages and must comply with the format of Springer LNCS/LNAI Proceedings. (see

Paper submission is from the Easychair system:

Accepted papers presented at the conference will be included in the Proceedings of IDEAL 2016, to be published by Springer in its LNCS series, which is indexed in EI. In addition, selected papers will be invited for special issues in several leading international journals in the field, including the International Journals of Neural Systems (IJNS).

Call for Workshops and Special Sessions

Special Sessions

In addition to the regular sessions, there will be special sessions devoted to emerging topics and areas with growing attention. Researchers and prospective organizers are invited to submit a one-page proposal for a special session to the special session chair Antonio Tallon ( by April 15, 2016. Each proposal should include the following information:
• The title of the special session.
• The organizers with their affiliations.
• A description of why the topic is of special interest and how it fits to the scope of IDEAL.
Each special session preferably consists of four or more presentations. Special sessions receiving less than 4 papers will be merged into a suitable regular session.


Workshops focus on new and emerging topics. In contrast to special sessions, workshops should include an introductory talk or tutorial on the topic and will have final discussions at the end of the workshop. Apart from the introductory talk in the discussion, Workshops should preferably include six or more additional presentations. Researchers or prospective organisers are invited to submit a one-page proposals for workshops to the special session chair Antonio Tallon ( by April 15, 2016. In addition to the information required for special sessions, workshop proposal should also include the following:
• The name(s) of the presenter(s) of the introductory talk.
• A theme for the discussion.

Paper Format and Review Process

The paper format of Special Sessions and Workshops is the same as for the main track of the conference and so is their submission and review process (while each Special Session or Workshop can appoint its own reviewers if necessary, in additional to the main PC). All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings.
