BRACIS 2016 : Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems
Call For Papers
Call for Papers – BRACIS 2016
The Program Committee of the 5th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent System (BRACIS) invites submissions of original research papers for the conference, to be held in Recife, Pernambuco, from October 9th to 12th, 2016. BRACIS is one of the most important events in Brazil for researchers in the field of Artificial and Computational intelligence. The domain of the conference includes traditional and original topics of both areas and it aims to promote theories and novel applications dealing with the use and analysis of AI/CI techniques in various related fields. BRACIS also aims for the promotion of international level research by exchanging scientific ideas among researchers, practitioners, scientists and engineers. The yearly event series started in 2012 from the combination of the Brazilian Symposium on Artificial Intelligence – SBIA (21 editions) and the Brazilian Symposium on Neural Networks – SBRN (12 editions). In this year, it will be held in conjunction with the 3rd KDMile - Symposium on Knowledge Discovery, Mining and Learning; the National Meeting for Artificial and ComputationaI Intelligence - XIII Encontro Nacional de Inteligência Artificial e Computacional (ENIAC); and the Thesis and Dissertation Contest - X Concurso de Teses e Dissertações em Inteligência Artificial e Computacional (CTDIAC).
Paper submission - 5th June 2016
Notification to authors - 10th July 2016
Camera-ready copy due - 30th July 2016
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to be appreciated for publication in special issues after the conference.
This year, a special issue is confirmed:
Natural Computing ISSN: 1567-7818
Another Special is being negotiated with editors and should be announced soon.
Submissions should include significant and previously unpublished research on all aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Computational Intelligence (CI).
Submitted papers must be written in English, and not exceed 6 pages, including all tables, figures, and references (style of Conference Publishing Services (CPS)).
Formatting instructions, as well as templates for Word and LaTeX, are available at https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html
All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field and accepted papers will be included in the BRACIS proceedings, published by CPS (http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/) and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
Note that the review process is double-blind (authors names and institutions must be omitted in the papers, as well as other form of information that could disclose the authorship of the paper). Only PDF files can be uploaded in the submission system.
Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation. However, no distinction will be made between accepted papers in the conference proceedings.
