Call for Papers

2007 International Conference on Intelligent Computing (ICIC'07)

August 21-24, 2007, Qingdao, CHINA

Internet based paper submission opens January 1, 2007
On-Line Electronic Submitting System
Paper Submission Deadline: April 1, 2007

2007 International Conference on Intelligent Computing (ICIC07) will be 
held on August 21-24, 2007 in Qingdao, Shandong Province, China (please 
refer to the conference website: 
This is the Third International Conference on Intelligent Computing, 
which is built upon the success of ICIC05 and ICIC06 held in Hefei and 
  Kunming, China, respectively.

The intelligent computing technology includes a range of techniques such 
as Artificial Intelligence, Perceptual and Pattern Recognition, 
Evolutionary and Adaptive Computing, Informatics Theories and 
Applications, Computational Neuroscience & Bioscience, Soft Computing, 
Case Based and Constrained Reasoning, Agents, Networking and Computer 
Supported Co-operative Working, Human Computer Interface Issues, etc.

ICIC theme unifies the picture of contemporary intelligent computing 
techniques as an integral concept that highlights the trends in advanced 
computational intelligence and bridges theoretical research with 
applications. Therefore, the theme for this conference is Advanced 
Intelligent Computing Technology and Applications. Papers related to 
this theme are especially solicited, including theories, methodologies, 
and applications in science and technology. Topics covering industrial 
issues/applications and academic research into intelligent computing 
will be included, but not limited to:

A1 Neural Networks
A2 Evolutionary Computing and Genetic Algorithms
A3 Fuzzy Systems and Soft Computing
A4 Particle Swarm Optimization and Niche Technology
A5 Swarm Intelligence and Optimization

The goal of this conference is to bring together the researchers from 
academia and industry as well as practitioners to share ideas, problems 
and solutions related to the multifaceted aspects of Intelligent 
Computing fields. This conference will feature world-class plenary 
speakers, exhibitions, and a large number of oral and poster 
presentations and some special sessions focused on popular topics.

Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers by the 
submission deadline (April 1, 2007). The submission of a paper implies 
that the paper is original and has not been submitted to elsewhere for 
review or copyright protected and will be presented by one of the 
author(s) if accepted. All papers should be submitted electronically via 
Online Electronic Submission System. The initial submissions are 
acceptable in the formats of PDF, Word, or Postscript. Besides papers in 
regular sessions, papers in Special Sessions are also encouraged to 
submit for those new topics and innovative applications of established 

Each special session proposal should be well motivated and should 
consist of 5 to 8 papers. Each paper must have the title, authors with 
e-mails/web sites, and as detailed an abstract as possible. The special 
session organizer(s) contact information should also be included. All 
special session organizers must obtain firm commitments from their 
special session presenters and authors to submit papers in a timely 
fashion (if the special session is accepted) and, particularly, present 
them at the ICIC 2007. Each special session organizer will be session 
chair for their own special sessions at ICIC 2007 accordingly. All 
planned papers for special sessions will undergo the same review process 
as the ones in regular sessions. All accepted papers for regular and 
special sessions will also be published by Springer's Lecture Notes 
Series (LNSs), and a small selected number of papers will be extended 
and revised for possible inclusion in several main-stream international
