ICIC 2018 Call for Papers

2018 International Conference on Intelligent Computing
August 15-18 ,2018

This is the Fourteenth International Conference on Intelligent Computing, which is built upon the success of ICIC'05, ICIC'06, ICIC'07, ICIC'08, ICIC'09, ICIC'10, ICIC'11, ICIC'12, ICIC'13, ICIC'14, ICIC'15, ICIC'16 and ICIC'17 held in Hefei, Kunming, Qingdao and Shanghai, China, and Ulsan, Korea, Changsha, Zhengzhou, Huangshan, Nanning, Taiyuan, Fuzhou, Lanzhou, China and Liverpool,UK respectively. The intelligent computing annual conference primarily aims to promote the research, development and application of advanced intelligent computing techniques by providing a vibrant and effective forum across a variety of disciplines. This conference has a further aim of increasing the awareness of industry of advanced intelligent computing techniques and the economic benefits that can be gained by implementing them.

The intelligent computing technology includes a range of techniques such as Artificial Intelligence, Pattern Recognition, Evolutionary Computing, Informatics Theories and Applications, Computingal Neuroscience & Bioscience, Soft Computing, Human Computer Interface Issues, etc.

ICIC theme unifies the picture of contemporary intelligent computing techniques as an integral concept that highlights the trends in advanced computational intelligence and bridges theoretical research with applications. Therefore, the theme for this conference is Advanced Intelligent Computing Methodologies and Applications . Papers related to this theme are especially solicited, including theories, methodologies, and applications in science and technology.

All accepted conference papers will be published by Springer Verlag, including Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences (LNCS)/Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI)/Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics (LNBI). And a small number of selected high-quality papers will be extended for possible inclusion in several main-stream international journals. Fees, if any, for such Journal publications, will have to be borne by the authors.

Manuscripts should be written in English with a single-column, single-space format. Each newly submitted paper should be not shorter than 10 pages including figures and references. The format for submitted papers should refer to the ELECTRONIC FORMAT REQUIREMENTS of the Springer-Verlag. We are strongly suggesting you to typeset your paper in Springer LNCS WORD format when you are submitting your papers. In doing so, it will save your time in typesetting your camera ready paper for registration process. Authors should submit their papers to the ICIC 2018 by the On-Line Electronic Submitting System.
