Special Sessions


ICCCI 2018, September 5-7, 2018, Bristol, UK

Call for Special Sessions & Workshops

Deadline: February 1, 2018

The ICCCI 2018 invites proposals for Special Sessions & Workshops to be held during the conference. They intend to provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to present and discuss their work, as well as to offer a forum for interaction among a broader community of researchers. A Special Session or Workshop will consist of a group of papers in a sub-discipline of Computational Collective Intelligence related to the main topics of ICCCI 2018. The papers will be required to meet the same standards as ICCCI 2018 papers and will be published in the conference proceedings, in a bound volume by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. All the Special Sessions and Doctoral Track will be centralized as tracks in the same conference submission and reviewing system as the regular papers.
