June 1-6, 2008; Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre


The 2008 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI 2008) will
be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre during June 1-6,
2008. Sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, co-sponsored
by the International Neural Network Society, Evolutionary Programming
Society and the Institution of Engineering and Technology, WCCI 2008 is
composed of the 2008 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks
(IJCNN 2008), the 2008 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems
(FUZZ-IEEE 2008) and the 2008 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (CEC
2008). WCCI 2008 will be the fifth milestone in this series with a glorious
history from WCCI 1994 in Orlando, WCCI 1998 in Anchorage, WCCI 2002 in
Honolulu, to WCCI 2006 in Vancouver. The congress will feature
world-renowned plenary speakers, regular technical sessions,
state-of-the-art special sessions, interactive poster sessions, moderated
panel discussions, informative pre-congress tutorials, themed post-congress
workshops, and entertaining social functions.

Call for Contributed Papers 
Researchers are invited to contribute high-quality papers to WCCI 2008. All
papers are to be submitted electronically through the Congress website by
December 1, 2007. All submitted papers will be refereed by experts in the
fields based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality, and
clarity. For inquiries, contact IJCNN2008 Program Chair Derong Liu at
dliu from ece.uic.edu, FUZZ-IEEE2008 Program Chair Gary Feng at
megfeng from cityu.edu.hk, or CEC2008 Program Chair Zbigniew Michalewicz at
zbyszek from cs.adelaide.edu.au. 

Call for Special Sessions 

WCCI 2008 Program Committees solicit proposals for special sessions within
the technical scopes of the three conferences. Special sessions, to be
organized by internationally recognized experts, aim to bring together
researchers in special focused topics. Cross-fertilization of the three
research areas of computational intelligence with new emerging technologies
is strongly encouraged. Papers submitted for special sessions are to be
peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the contributed papers.
Researchers interested in organizing special sessions are invited to submit
formal proposals to IJCNN2008 Special Sessions Chair Jagath C. Rajapakse at?
asjagath from ntu.edu.sg, FUZZ-IEEE2008 Special Sessions Chair Xiao-Jun Zeng at
x.zeng from manchester.ac.uk, CEC2008 Special Sessions Chair Yuhui Shi at
shi from ieee.org, or Special Sessions Chair on Emerging Areas Byoung-Tak Zhang
at btzhang from bi.snu.ac.kr by November 1, 2007. A special session proposal
should include a proposed session title, a brief description of the scope
and motivation, biographic and contact information of the organizer(s). 

Call for Tutorials and Workshops 

WCCI 2008 will also feature pre-congress tutorials and post-congress
workshops covering fundamental and advanced computational intelligence
topics. A tutorial proposal should include title, outline, expected
enrollment, and presenter biography. Any inquires regarding the tutorials
should be addressed to Tutorial Chairs Wlodzislaw Duch at wduch from is.umk.pl,
Russell Eberhart at reberhar from iupui.edu, and Qiang Shen at qqs from aber.ac.uk by
January 1, 2008. Any inquires regarding the workshops should be addressed to
Workshops Chairs Irwin K.C. King? at king from cse.cuhk.edu.hk and Yangmin Li at
ymli from umac.mo by January 1, 2008. 

Call for Competitions 

WCCI 2008 will host competitions to stimulate research in computational
intelligence, promote fair evaluations, and attract students. The proposals
should include descriptions of the problems addressed, motivations and
expected impact on computational intelligence, data description, evaluation
procedures and established baselines, schedules, anticipated number of
participants, and a biography of the main team members. Proposals are
invited to be sent to Competitions Chairs Isabelle Guyon at
isabelle from clopinet.com for IJCNN2008, Leszek Rutkowski at
lrutko from kik.pcz.czest.pl for FUZZ-IEEE2008, or Philip Hingston at
p.hingston from ecu.edu.au for CEC2008 by October 1, 2007.
