Repost: Call for Papers: IEEE WCCI 2016

The IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (IEEE WCCI) is the largest technical event in the field of computational intelligence. The IEEE WCCI 2016 will host three conferences: The 2016 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2016), the 2016 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE2016), and the 2016 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2016) under one roof. It encourages cross-fertilization of ideas among the three big areas and provides a forum for intellectuals from all over theworld to discuss and present their research findings on computational intelligence.

IEEE WCCI 2016 will be held at the Vancouver Convention Centre, Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver is Canada’s Pacific gem, offering a winning combination of world-class hotels, meeting venues, and restaurants in a setting of spectacular beauty. Few convention cities can offer such a wide range of cosmopolitan amenities in a downtown core that is safe, clean, pedestrian friendly, and stunning in its backdrop of mountains and ocean.

IJCNN is the flagship conference of the International Neural Network Society and the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. It covers a wide range of topics in the field of neural networks, from biological neural network modeling to artificial neural computation.

FUZZ-IEEE is the foremost conference in the field of fuzzy systems. It covers all topics in fuzzy systems, from theory to applications.

IEEE CEC is a major event in the field of evolutionary computation, and covers all topics in evolutionary computation from theory to applications.

Call for Papers

Papers for IEEE WCCI 2016 should be submitted electronically through the Congress website at, and will be refereed by experts in the fields and ranked based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality and clarity.

Call for Tutorials

IEEE WCCI 2016 will feature pre-Congress tutorials, covering fundamental and advanced topics in computational intelligence. A tutorial proposal should include title, outline, expected enrollment, and presenter/organizer biography. Inquiries regarding tutorials should be addressed to Tutorials Chairs.

Call for Special Session Proposals

IEEE WCCI 2016 solicits proposals for special sessions within the technical scope of the three conferences. Special sessions, to be organized by internationally recognized experts, aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. Cross-fertilization of the three technical disciplines and newly emerging research areas are strongly encouraged. Inquiries regarding special sessions and proposals should be addressed to Special Sessions Chairs.

Call for Competition Proposals

IEEE WCCI 2016 will host competitions to stimulate research in computational intelligence. A competition proposal should include descriptions of the problem(s) addressed, evaluation procedures, and a biography of the organizers. Inquiries regarding competitions should be addressed to the Competitions Chair.
