CALL FOR PAPERS: Brain Inspired Cognitive Systems, July 11-14, 2012, CHINA

BICS conference, Shenyang, China

2012 Brain-inspired Cognitive Systems (BICS 2012) The 2012 International Conference on Brain 
Inspired Cognitive Systems (BICS 2012) will be held in Shenyang, China, as a sequel of BICS 2004-2010.
BICS 2012 aims to provide a high-level international forum for scientists, engineers, and educators
to present the state of the art of brain inspired cognitive systems research and applications in 
diverse fields. The symposium will feature plenary lectures given by world renowned scholars,

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers (6-8 pages normally and 10 pages 
maximum) by the submission deadline through the online submission system 
( The submission of a paper implies that the paper is original 
and has not been submitted under review or copyright protected elsewhere and will be presented by 
an author if accepted. All submitted papers will be refereed by experts in the field based on the 
criteria of originality, significance, quality, and clarity. The authors of accepted papers will 
have an opportunity to revise their papers and take consideration of the referees' comments and 
suggestions. All papers accepted by and presented at BICS 2012 will be published by Springer as 
multiple volumes of Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence which will be indexed by EI and ISTP. 
Selected papers will be published in special issues of several SCI journals.

Special sessions: Potential organizers are also invited to enlist five or more papers with cohesive
topics to form special sessions.
