June 1-6, 2008; Hong Kong 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 functions.

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 dliu@ece.uic.edu, FUZZ-IEEE2008 Program Chair Gary Feng at megfeng@cityu.edu.hk, or CEC2008 Program Chair Zbigniew Michalewicz at zbyszek@cs.adelaide.edu.au.

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? asjagath@ntu.edu.sg, FUZZ-IEEE2008 Special Sessions Chair Xiao-Jun Zeng at x.zeng@manchester.ac.uk, CEC2008 Special Sessions Chair Yuhui Shi at shi@ieee.org, or Special Sessions Chair on Emerging Areas Byoung-Tak Zhang at btzhang@bi.snu.ac.kr 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 wduch@is.umk.pl, Russell Eberhart at reberhar@iupui.edu, and Qiang Shen at qqs@aber.ac.uk by January 1, 2008. Any inquires regarding the workshops should be addressed to Workshops Chairs Irwin K.C. King? at king@cse.cuhk.edu.hk and Yangmin Li at ymli@umac.mo 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 isabelle@clopinet.com for IJCNN2008, Leszek Rutkowski at lrutko@kik.pcz.czest.pl for FUZZ-IEEE2008, or Philip Hingston at p.hingston@ecu.edu.au for CEC2008 by October 1, 2007.
