CFP: 2018 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence

08-13 July 2018, Windsor Convention Centre, Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL

On behalf of the IEEE WCCI 2018 Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the bi-annual IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (IEEE WCCI), which is the largest technical event in the field of computational intelligence. The IEEE WCCI 2018 will host three conferences: The 2018 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2018 - co-sponsored by International Neural Network Society - INNS), the 2018 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2018), and the 2018 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2018). It encourages cross-fertilization of ideas among the three big areas and provides a forum for intellectuals from all over the world to discuss and present their research findings on computational intelligence.

IEEE WCCI 2018 will be held at the Windsor Convention Centre, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Known as one of the most beautiful cities in the World, Rio de Janeiro is the first city to receive the certificate of World Heritage for its Cultural Landscape. This unprecedented title was recently conferred by the United Nations Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (UNESCO).

  • Zhaohui Wu, Professor with the College of Computer Science and Technology at Zhejiang University and the president of Zhejiang University "Cyborg Intelligence: Towards the Convergence of Machine and Biological Intelligence"
  • Irina Perfilieva, Professor of Applied Mathematics and Head of the Theoretical Research Department in the University of Ostrava, Czech Republic "Fuzzy (F-) transforms - the efficient tool for (even big) data preprocessing"
  • Jose L. Verdegay, Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence, University of Granada, Spain "On decision and optimization models and their applications"
  • Marcos Valle, Professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics of the University of Campinas, Brazil "Fuzzy Associative Memories: Theory and Applications"
  • Hussein Abbass, Professor of Information Technology at the University of New South Wales in Canberra, Australia "Trusted Computational Intelligence"
  • Ong Yew Soon, Professor and Chair of the School of Computer Science and Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore "'Memes' as Building Blocks of Intelligence: From Refinement to Higher Order Representations in Transfer and Multitask Optimization"
  • Miguel A. Nicolelis, Professor in Neuroscience, Center for Neuroengineering, Duke University, USA "Brain-machine interfaces: from basic science to neurological rehabilitation"
Special Sessions: Special session proposals should include the title, aim and scope (including a list of main topics), a short biography of all organizers, and a list of potential contributors. All special sessions proposals should be submitted to the Special Sessions Co-Chairs, according to the most appropriate topic:

Tutorials: Tutorials offer a unique opportunity to disseminate in-depth information on specific topics in computational intelligence. If you are interested in proposing a tutorial, would like to recommend someone who might be interested, or have questions about tutorials, please contact the Tutorials Co-Chairs:
