<< Call For ** Workshop Proposals ** at ISMIS'12 (Dec 2012, Macau) >>


20th International Symposium on Methodologies for Intelligent Systems


<http://www.fst.umac.mo/wic2012/ISMIS/?category=participants&node=6> &node=6


ISMIS is an established and prestigious conference for exchanging the latest
research results in building intelligent systems for diverse application
areas. It focuses on AI 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, as
well as integration of them.


The Programme Committee of ISMIS'12 invites proposals for workshops to be
held within the main conference December 4-7, 2012 at Macau.


ISMIS'12 workshops are to provide a forum for sharing cutting-edge and novel
intelligent systems research works. The emphasis should be on novelty and
thus works with novel ideas but only preliminary results as support in
principle should also be welcome and encouraged. The theme of the proposed
workshop can be focusing on i) novel and non-conventional methodologies to
enable intelligent systems for solving complex problems, ii) intelligent
systems applying to a specific areas of real-world problems which are of
high important to human kind in this era (e.g., healthcare, education), iii)
intelligent systems specially designed for running on newly emerging
computing platform (e.g., GPU, smart phones), or other dimensions of focus
(either theoretical or applied) which are emerging in the field of
intelligent systems and worth more discussion among researchers as well as
participants from industry.


The workshop organizers will be responsible for advertising the workshop,
forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the papers, and
ensuring a high quality of the workshop programme. Also, the workshop
organizers should ensure the presence of authors of accepted papers at the
workshops. Optionally, the workshop can include invited talks and/or a panel


Workshops may be full-day or half-day. A full-day workshop should select
10-14 regular papers, while a half-day workshop should select 5-7 regular
papers, from a large number of submissions. The workshop organizers can make
their own decisions on paper length but it is recommended that the author
should follow the Springer formatting style which can be found at
There will NOT be a proceeding prepared for the workshops, and thus the
workshop organizers are expected to maintain a web site with the accepted
papers posted there. In addition, authors of selected workshop papers will
be invited (after the workshop) to extend their papers for the consideration
of publishing in a book in ** Springer's Studies in Computational
Intelligence series **.


<< Workshop Proposal Submission >>


Workshop organizers should submit their proposals (PDF) directly to the
Workshop Chair via e-mail.


Workshop proposals should include the following elements:

-              "[ISMIS 2012 Workshop Proposal]" as email subject
