Call for Papers – BRACIS

The Program Committee of the 4th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent
System (BRACIS)  invites submissions of original research papers for
the conference, to be held in the “city of the sun”, Natal , Rio
Grande do Norte, from November 4th to 7th, 2015. Submissions should
include significant and previously unpublished research on all aspects
of Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Computational Intelligence (CI).

BRACIS originated from the combination of the two most important
scientific events in Brazil in AI and CI: the Brazilian Symposium on
Artificial Intelligence – SBIA (21 editions), and the Brazilian
Symposium on Neural Networks – SBRN (12 editions) and its main goal is
the promotion of international level research by exchanging scientific
ideas among researchers, practitioners, scientists and engineers, as
well as promoting original theories and novel applications dealing
with the use and analysis of Artificial and Computational intelligence
techniques in various related fields.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Submitted papers must be written in English, and not exceed 6 pages,
including all tables, figures, and references (style of Conference

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the
field and accepted papers will be included in the BRACIS proceedings
published by CPS (http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/) and
submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Note that the review process will be double-blind, and authors names and institutions should be omitted in the papers.

Papers will be accepted for either oral or poster presentation.
However, no distinction will be made between accepted papers in the
conference proceedings.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions
of their work to be appreciated for publication in special issues of
several international journals (to be announced).

We look forward to seeing you in Natal!
