*** FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS AND SPECIAl SESSIONS ***

24th International Symposium on Methodologies for
Intelligent Systems (ISMIS 2018)

St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus, 29-31 October, 2018

http://www.cyprusconferences.org/ismis2018


WELCOME

ISMIS is an established and prestigious conference for exchanging the latest
research results in building intelligent systems. Held twice every three years,
the conference provides a medium for exchanging scientific research and
technological achievements accomplished by the international community.


SCOPE

The scope of ISMIS is intended to represent a wide range of topics on
applying Artificial Intelligence techniques to areas as diverse as decision
support, automated deduction, reasoning, knowledge based systems,
machine learning, computer vision, robotics, planning, databases,
information retrieval, etc. The focus is on research in intelligent systems.
The conference addresses issues involving solutions to problems that are
complex to be solved through conventional approaches and that require the
simulation of intelligent thought processes, heuristics and applications of
knowledge. The integration of these multiple approaches in solving
complex problems is of particular importance. ISMIS provides a forum and a
means for exchanging information for those interested purely in theory,
those interested primarily in implementation, and those interested in specific
research and industrial applications.


TOPICS

ISMIS 2018 is intended to attract individuals who are actively engaged both
in theoretical and practical aspects of intelligent systems. The goal is to
provide a platform for a useful exchange between theoreticians and
practitioners, and to foster the cross-fertilization of ideas in the following
areas:

• Active Media Human-Computer Interaction
• Autonomic and Evolutionary Computation
• Digital Libraries
• Health Informatics
• Intelligent Agent Technology
• Intelligent Data Processing and Analytics
• Intelligent Information Retrieval
• Intelligent Information Systems
• Intelligent Language Processing
• Knowledge Integration and Aggregation
• Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining
• Knowledge Visualization
• Logic for Artificial Intelligence
• Multimedia Information Retrieval
• Soft Computing
• Text Mining
• Web Intelligence
• Web Mining

In addition, we solicit papers dealing with Applications of Intelligent Systems
in complex/novel domains, e.g. art, human genome, global change,
manufacturing, social good, etc.


PAPER SUBMISSION

Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts in LNCS/LNAI style
(maximum 10 pages). All paper submissions will be handled electronically.
All submissions will be subject to review by the ISMIS 2018 Program
Committee. Papers should be prepared using the Springer LNCS/LNAI style
(http://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines),
maximum 10 pages.

Papers should be submitted in PDF form via ISMIS 2018 Online Submission
System: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ismis2018 .


SPECIAL SESSIONS

ISMIS 2018 solicits proposals for special sessions within the technical scope
of the conference. Special sessions supplement the regular program of the
conference and provide a sample of the state-of-the-art research in specific
topics.

Special-session proposals should be submitted by the prospective
organizer(s) who will commit to promoting and handling the review process
of their special session as Chairs or Co-Chairs of the event. Proposals
should include the following information:

• Title
• Name(s) of organizer(s)
• Email of main contact person
• Brief bio(s) of organizer(s)
• Brief description
• Related topics (with respect to those of the Main Conference)
• Potential participants
• A draft of the CFP
• Description of publicity and promotion plan

Papers submitted to special sessions will have to be evaluated and peer-
reviewed along the very same criteria as the regular sessions. It is expected
that 4 or 5 papers are presented at each special session. The accepted
papers will be published by Springer in the same conference volume with
the regular accepted papers.

Special-session proposals should be submitted in PDF format by E-mail to
the Special Sessions Chair Stefano Ferrili at: [log in to unmask] .


PUBLICATION AND JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUES

The ISMIS 2018 proceedings will be published by Springer in LNAI
(Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) and will be available at the
conference.

Authors of best papers will be invited to submit their extended versions to
the Journal of Intelligent Information Systems (JIIS) (http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10844)
published by Springer. Fast Track Processing will be used to have them
reviewed and published.
