Call for Papers - Extended Deadline for Full Papers - 31st July

The conference (IEEE Conference Nr. 45088) is mainly concerned with recent advances and challenges in the theory, design and applications of broadly perceived intelligent systems. With respect to tools and techniques, a special emphasis will be on modern artificial intelligence, computational intelligence (fuzzy sets, rough sets, evolutionary computation, neural networks, swarm intelligence, etc.), calculi of uncertainty, nonstandard logics, data analysis, data mining and knowledge discovery, machine learning, information aggregation and fusion, multimedia information processing, Web technology and intelligence, cognitive and affective computing, multiagent systems, ontologies for intelligent systems, "big data", etc.Main application areas include, but are not limited to: bioinformatics, business and finance, intelligent decision support systems, database systems, e-learning, e-administration, environmental engineering, healthcare, security, sensors, automation, mobile robotics, manufacturing systems, logistics, electrical and power engineering, telecommunication, infrastructure and transportation, etc.

Papers will be selected in a blind refereeing process based on the submitted full papers. Final papers should have no more than 7.000 words (all inclusive) or 8 pages and should be in the correct format. The paper should clearly describe its purpose and relevance, reference to existing theories and related works, research methods used and major results in the conference topics. Papers are expected to show the following structure: (i) Introduction, (ii) Relation to existing theories and work, (iii) Research/Technology/Innovation approach, (iv) Findings, (v) Conclusion, and (vi) References.

Review criteria will be (a) whether and (b) how the paper extends the existing body of knowledge in intelligent systems as its contribution, and (c) therefore its relevance for the conference topics, (d) the scientific/innovation quality of the approach and (e) the clarity of presentation. Papers will be reviewed on a rolling basis.Papers will only be accepted for review on the condition that the material is original, that it has not been copyrighted, published, presented or is currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Based on the recommendations of the reviewers, the editorial committee will allocate submissions for oral presentation of papers and/or for poster presentations. Speakers will have 20 minutes for presentation and discussion of their paper. The official language of the conference is English.

The conference will publish one paper per presenting author only. All accepted papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings to be available via IEEE Xplore® (with ISBN Number and DOI for the paper), only if at least one author pays a full registration fee before the deadline.

Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing  (A&I) databases. All A&I providers can be found here: and include amongst other, Scopus and Web of Science.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extensions of the presented work to special issues of indexed scientific journals, e.g.:

Papers must be submitted using the on-line system available at the conference website. For any questions please contact the secretariat at
