Call for Papers – ENIAC

Call for Papers – ENIAC 2015 

(XII Encontro Nacional de Inteligência Artificial e Computacional)

The Program Committee of the 12th National Meeting on Artificial and Computational Intelligence (ENIAC) 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 Submissions should include significant and previously unpublished research on all aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Computational Intelligence (CI).

ENIAC 2015 is the twelfth of a series of successful meetings bringing these two research areas together. Previously named ENIA, the event has held editions in Brasília-DF (1997), Rio de Janeiro-RJ (1999), Fortaleza-CE (2001), Campinas-SP (2003), São Leopoldo-RS (2005), Rio de Janeiro-RJ (2007), Bento Gonçalves-RS (2009), Natal-RN (2011) and Curitiba-PR (2012). Since 2013, the name was modified to ENIAC to better represent  both research areas of AI and CI and  it has held editions in Fortaleza-CE (2013) and São Carlos-SP (2014).

In 2015, ENIAC will be held in conjunction with the 2015 Conference on Intelligent Systems (BRACIS 2015)  and the Brazilian Symposium in Information and Human Language Technology (STIL 2015). ENIAC is an event that provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, educators and students to present and discuss innovations, trends, experiences and developments in the fields of Artificial and Computational Intelligence.

Submitted papers may be written in Portuguese or English, and not exceed 8 pages,
including all tables, figures, and references (style of Conference Publishing Services – CPS).

Formatting instructions, as well as templates for Word and LaTeX, are
available at

Papers must be submitted in PDF format using the EasyChair system:

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the
field and accepted papers will be included in the ENIAC proceedings, published electronically as BDB Comp (
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 international journals (to be announced).

We look forward to seeing you in Natal!
