Call For Papers
Call for Papers – SLIOIA 2018 – Extended Deadline: April 22, 2018
We are delighted to invite the academic and professional communities to submit works to
SLIOIA 2018 (Latin American Symposium on Operations Research and Artificial

The Latin American Computing Conference (CLEI) is an annual event organised by the Latin
American Centre of Studies in Informatics, which has being held since 1974, rotating across
several Latin American countries. It congregates researchers, professionals, lecturers and
students is a forum to discuss subjects related to Computer Science, Computer Engineering,
Information Systems and related courses in Computing. It also discusses the direct impact of
ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) in Society.
The Latin American Symposium on Operations Research and Artificial Intelligence (SLIOIA)
provides a forum for the Artificial Intelligence and Operations Research communities to
exchange ideas, experiences and research results among teachers, researchers, students and
Original contributions are sought in the diverse areas of Artificial Intelligence and Operations
Research, comprising academic research, business and industrial applications that both make
an impact and provide lessons on their development.
Topics of Interest:
Applications of Operational Research
and related subjects
Applications in Economy and Finance

Innovative applications of Artificial
Intelligence to Big Data, Bioinformatics, Business Intelligence, Computer and Network Security, Data Analysis,
Data Mining, Education, Human-Computer Interaction, Personalisation and Recommendation Systems,
Social Networks, Virtual Reality etc.
Local: Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie / São Paulo – Brazil
Date: October 1 to 5, 2018
Paper submission: Interested authors are invited to submit their contributions (full
papers and abstracts) by April 22, 2018
Notification of acceptance: June 29, 2018
Final version submission: August 5, 2018
Work Submission: Works must be written in Spanish, Portuguese or English. They will be
reviewed by an international program committee composed by members from academy and

abbiding to the IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings:
In the text of the works to be reviewed by the Scientific Committee any information that allows
author identification shall not be included. Therefore, names, affiliations and the author’s
bibliographical information shall not appear in the initial versions. Such information shall be
included only in the works’ final version.
The submitted works shall not have been published or be in the process of review by any other

All the works will be reviewed in a “blind review” way, by at least two members of the
In each conference session, the authors of the accepted papers will have 15 minutes for their
oral presentation and further 5 minutes for discussion.
Publication and Indexing:
In order to guarrantee the publication of an accepted article in CLEI 2018 Proceedings, at least
one of the authors must register for the conference. The article must also abide by the suggested
format and it must not exceed the maximum number of pages allowed. In addition, the authors
of works that receive recommendations of modifications must follow these recommendations
before the final submission.
Each registration will allow the publication of up to two accepted articles in CLEI 2018
Proceedings. In order to puiblish further articles, an extra payment for each additional article
must be made.
The articles (full papers) will be sent to be indexed at the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
The best articles will be selected for possible publication at the following journals:
- Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science
- CLEI Electronic Journal
The authors who are invited to submit an article to CLEI Electronic Journal must then submit
an enhanced and expanded version of the original article in English, which will undertake a
new review process.
