Call For Papers

The 11th International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI'18)

December 7-9, 2018, Arlington, Texas, USA

---Advancing BI Technologies from Basic Science Research to Real-World Practice---

Workshop/Special Session/Tutorial Proposals
Submission Deadline: May 1, 2018

Full Paper Submission Deadline: June 15, 2018

The International Conference on Brain Informatics series (BI)
has established itself as the world's premier research forum
that brings together researchers and practitioners from
neuroscience, cognitive science, computer science, data science,
artificial intelligence, information communication technologies,
and neuroimaging technologies with the purpose of exploring the
fundamental roles, interactions as well as practical impacts of
Brain Informatics.

The BI'18 will provide a broad forum that academia, professionals
and industry people can exchange their ideas, findings, and strategies
in brain informatics research and brain-inspired concepts and
technologies. It welcomes emerging technologies for addressing
fundamental neurobiological questions about healthy brain function,
laying the groundwork for advancing treatments for brain disorders
or injury, and for generating brain-inspired "smart" artificial
intelligence and computing technologies to meet future societal needs.
It will educate and expand the brain informatics workforce and create
new career opportunities for brain research and related innovations.

The BI'18 welcomes paper submissions (full paper and abstract
submissions). Both research and application papers are solicited. All
submitted papers will be peer-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 the possible book
publication in the Springer-Nature Brain Informatics & Health book
series (

TYPE-I (Full Paper Submissions):

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):

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 (the 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
graphics 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 Publications ***

The Brain Informatics conferences have the formal ties with the Open Access
Brain Informatics journal (Springer-Nature,
Accepted full papers will be selected to publish in the Open Access Brain
Informatics Journal upon revision. No article-processing fee will be 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.
