Call For Papers

The 2017 International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI'17)

Welcome to Join the 10TH Anniversary Of Brain Informatics (BI):
Informatics Perspective of Investigation on the Brain and Mind

November 16-18, 2017, Beijing, China



Brain Informatics (BI) conference series provides a premier forum to
bring together researchers and practitioners in the fields of
neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, data science,
artificial intelligence, information communication technologies, and
neuroimaging technologies.

BI'17 addresses the computational, cognitive, physiological,
biological, physical, ecological and social perspectives of brain
informatics, as well as topics relating to mental health and
well-being. It also welcomes emerging information technologies,
including but not limited to Internet/Web of Things (IoT/WoT), cloud
computing, big data analytics and interactive knowledge discovery
related to brain research. BI'17 also encourages submissions that
explore how advanced computing technologies are applied to and make a
difference in various large-scale brain studies and their

BI'17 welcomes paper submissions (full paper and abstract
submissions). Both research and application papers are solicited. All
submitted papers will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality,
relevance, significance and clarity. Accepted full papers will be
included in the proceedings by Springer LNCS/LNAI.

Workshop, Special-Session and Tutorial proposals, and
Industry/Demo-Track papers are also welcome. The organizers of
Workshops and Special-Sessions are invited to prepare a book proposal
based on the topics of the workshop/special session for possible book
publication in the Springer-Nature Brain Informatics & Health book

*** Topics and Areas ***
Track 1: Cognitive and Computational Foundations of Brain Science
Track 2: Investigations of Human Information Processing Systems
Track 3: Brain Big Data Analytics, Curation and Management

Papers need to have up to 10 pages in LNCS format: All full
length papers accepted (and all special sessions' full length papers)
will be published by Springer as a volume of the series of LNCS/LNAI.

TYPE-II (Abstract Submissions; Submission Deadline: June 20, 2017):

Abstracts have a word limit of 500 words. Experimental research is
particularly welcome. Accepted abstract submissions will be included
in the conference program, and will be published as a single,
collective proceedings volume.

Title: Include in the title of the abstract all words critical for a
subject index. Write your title in sentence case (first letter is
capitalized; remaining letters are lower case). Do not bold or
italicize your full title.

Author: List all authors who contributed to the work discussed in the
abstract. The presenting author must be listed in the first author
slot of the list. Be prepared to submit contact information as well as
conflict of interest information for each author listed.

Abstract: Enter the body of the abstract and attach any applicable
graphic files or tables here. Do not re-enter the title, author,
support, or other information that is collected in other steps of the
submission form.

Presentation Preference: Authors may select from three presentation
formats when submitting an abstract: "poster only", "talk preferred"
or "no preference." The "talk preferred" selection indicates that you
would like to give a talk, but will accept a poster format if
necessary. Marking "poster only" indicates that you would not like to
be considered for an oral-presentation session. Selecting "no
preference" indicates the author's willingness to be placed in the
best format for the program.

Each paper or abstract requires one sponsoring attendee (i.e. someone
who registered and is attending the conference). A single attendee
can not sponsor more than two abstracts or papers.

Oral presentations will be selected from both full length papers and

*** Post-Conference Journal Publication ***

The Brain Informatics conferences have the formal ties with Brain
Informatics journal (Springer-Nature, Accepted papers from the conference,
including their Best Paper Award papers, will be expended and revised
for possible inclusion in the Brain Informatics journal each year. It
is fully sponsored and no any article-processing fee charged for
authors of Brain Informatics conference.

*** Awards ***

Best Paper awards will be conferred at the conference on the authors
of (1) the best research paper and (2) the best student paper.
