Call for Papers

Proposal submission deadline: 15th January, 2020

Papers for IEEE WCCI 2020 should be submitted electronically using the Congress website and will be refereed by experts in the fields and ranked based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality and clarity.

On behalf of the IEEE WCCI 2020 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 2020 will host three conferences: The 2020 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2020 – co-sponsored by International Neural Network Society – INNS), the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2020), and the 2020 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2020) under one roof. 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.

Call for Special Sessions

Proposal submission deadline: 15th December, 2019

IEEE WCCI 2020 solicits proposals for special sessions within the technical scope of the three conferences. Special sessions are 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 are strongly encouraged. Inquiries regarding special sessions and proposals should be addressed to Special Sessions Chairs :

IJCNN (including Deep Learning) : Richard Duro, University of A Coruña, Spain
FUZZ-IEEE : Humberto Bustince, Public University of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain
