Conference Call for Papers

IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Colombian Chapter and IEEE Colombia Section have chosen Medellin as the venue for the First IEEE Colombian Conference on Applications in Computational Intelligence ColCACI 2018. This event seeks to be the most important conference in computational intelligence (CI) in Colombia putting together academic, scientific and industry.

During the last years, Medellin has gained national and international recognition for the development of multiple initiatives in the field of computational applications. These tools have been used successfully to solve some government and education institutions problems. Medellin has 10 universities with undergraduate and graduate programs related to CI. This has allowed the local companies to grow and has encouraged multinational industries to open branch offices in the city. Furthermore, an increasing number of startups has uplifted the innovation ecosystem and contributed to the socio-economic development of the region. Meanwhile, local universities have attracted a new generation of highly skilled professors and researchers, whom have helped to establish doctoral programs and mature research groups.

We hope that both local academy and industry will take active participation in IEEE ColCACI 2018. Papers will be reviewed by an international technical committee under the IEEE standard procedure and accepted papers must be presented in oral session. This process is mandatory for the paper to be published in the conference proceedings (IEEE Xplore database, including ISBN).
