2008 IEEE WORLD CONGRESS ON COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE
June 1-6, 2008;
Convention and Exhibition Centre
The 2008 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI 2008) will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre during June 1-6, 2008. Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, co-sponsored by the International Neural Network Society, Evolutionary Programming Society and the Institution of Engineering and Technology, WCCI 2008 is composed of the 2008 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2008), the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2008) and the 2008 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC 2008). WCCI 2008 will be the fifth milestone in this series with a glorious history from WCCI 1994 in Orlando, WCCI 1998 in Anchorage, WCCI 2002 in Honolulu, to WCCI 2006 in Vancouver. The congress will feature world-renowned plenary speakers, regular technical sessions, state-of-the-art special sessions, interactive poster sessions, moderated panel discussions, informative pre-congress tutorials, themed post-congress workshops, and entertaining social events.
Call for Contributed Papers
Researchers are invited to contribute high-quality papers to WCCI 2008. All papers are to be submitted electronically through the Congress website by December 1, 2007. All submitted papers will be refereed by experts in the fields based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality, and clarity. For inquiries, contact IJCNN2008 Program Chair Derong Liu at email@example.com, FUZZ-IEEE2008 Program Chair Gary Feng at firstname.lastname@example.org, or CEC2008 Program Chair Zbigniew Michalewicz at email@example.com.
Call for Special Sessions
WCCI 2008 Program Committees solicit proposals for special sessions within the technical scopes of the three conferences. Special sessions, to be organized by internationally recognized experts, aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. Cross-fertilization of the three research areas of computational intelligence with new emerging technologies is strongly encouraged. Papers submitted for special sessions are to be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the contributed papers. Researchers interested in organizing special sessions are invited to submit formal proposals to IJCNN2008 Special Sessions Chair Jagath C. Rajapakse at firstname.lastname@example.org, FUZZ-IEEE2008 Special Sessions Chair Xiao-Jun Zeng at email@example.com, CEC2008 Special Sessions Chair Yuhui Shi at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Special Sessions Chair on Emerging Areas Byoung-Tak Zhang at email@example.com by November 1, 2007. A special session proposal should include a proposed session title, a brief description of the scope and motivation, biographic and contact information of the organizer(s).
Call for Tutorials and Workshops
WCCI 2008 will also feature pre-congress tutorials and post-congress workshops covering fundamental and advanced computational intelligence topics. A tutorial proposal should include title, outline, expected enrollment, and presenter biography. Any inquires regarding the tutorials should be addressed to Tutorial Chairs Wlodzislaw Duch at firstname.lastname@example.org, Russell Eberhart at email@example.com, and Qiang Shen at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 1, 2008. Any inquires regarding the workshops should be addressed to Workshops Chairs Irwin K.C. King at email@example.com and Yangmin Li at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 1, 2008.
Call for Competitions
WCCI 2008 will host competitions to stimulate research in computational intelligence, promote fair evaluations, and attract students. The proposals should include descriptions of the problems addressed, motivations and expected impact on computational intelligence, data description, evaluation procedures and established baselines, schedules, anticipated number of participants, and a biography of the main team members. Proposals are invited to be sent to Competitions Chairs Isabelle Guyon at email@example.com for IJCNN2008, Leszek Rutkowski at firstname.lastname@example.org for FUZZ-IEEE2008, or Philip Hingston at email@example.com for
CEC2008 by October 1, 2007.
