9th International Conference on Computational Collective Intelligence (ICCCI 2017): Last Call for Special Sessions & Workshops Proposals

by George Angelos Papadopoulos, March 16, 2017

Computational Collective Intelligence is most often understood as an AI
subfield dealing with soft computing methods which enable making group
decisions or processing knowledge among autonomous units acting in
distributed environments. Web-based systems, social networks and
multi-agent systems very often need these tools for working out consistent
knowledge states, resolving conflicts and making decisions. ICCCI 2017 is
the 9th edition of the conference organized by the University of Cyprus and
Wroclaw University of Science and Technology in Poland, in cooperation with
the IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Computational Collective Intelligence.
The aim of the conference is to provide an internationally respected forum
for scientific research in the computer-based methods of collective
intelligence and their applications in (but not limited to) such fields as
group decision making, consensus computing, knowledge integration,
semantic web, social networks and multi-agent systems.

Call for Special Sessions


ICCCI 2017 invites proposals for Special Sessions 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 will consist of a group of papers in a

sub-discipline of Computational Collective Intelligence related to the

main topics of ICCCI 2017.

 

The papers will be required to meet the same standards as ICCCI 2017

papers and will be published in the conference proceedings, in a bound

volume by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series.

All the Special Sessions will be centralized as tracks in the

same conference submission and reviewing system (EasyChair) as the

regular papers.

 

Please send the Special Session proposals with the following information:

· Title & acronym of the special session

· Brief profiles of special session organizers

· General description of the special session scope

· List of topics

· Proposed Session Program Committee (to be invited)


The format for the Special Session proposal should follow

the pattern of the template available on the conference web site.


The organizers will be responsible for the advertisement and promotion of

the Special Sessions and the conference including the Special

Sessions webpage preparation. The management of papers

review will be achieved by Special Session Committees, using

the Conference System (a separate EasyChair track will be provided for each

Special Session). The organizers are responsible for managing

the review process. All the reviews should be submitted through EasyChair.

Each paper should obtain at least two reviews.
