The 8th International Joint Conference on Computational Intelligence - IJCCI 2016

Published on: 8th February 2016
The eight edition of the IJCCI Conference (International Joint Conference onComputational Intelligence) organized by INSTICC (Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication) will take place from 9 to 11 of July 2016 in Porto, Portugal.
The purpose of IJCCI is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners on the areas of Fuzzy Computation, Evolutionary Computation and Neural Computation. IJCCI is composed of three co-located conferences, each specialized in at least one of the aforementioned main knowledge areas:

International Conference on Evolutionary Computation Theory and Applications – ECTA 2016


International Conference on Fuzzy Computational Theory and Applications – FCTA 2016


International Conference on Neural Computation Theory and Applications – NCTA 2016


One of the most important contributions that IJCCI brings about is the creation of a high-level forum in collaboration with the most prestigious internationally recognized experts who are internationally recognized experts in Computational Intelligence areas, including names such as Joaquim Filipe (Polytechnic Institute of Setúbal / INSTICC, Portugal) as Conference Chair; Juan Julian Merelo (University of Granada, Spain), Fernando Melício (Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa, Portugal), José M. Cadenas (University of Murcia, Spain ), António Dourado (University of Coimbra, Portugal), Kurosh Madani (University of Paris-EST Créteil (UPEC), France) and António Ruano (University of Algarve, Portugal) as Program Co-Chairs. IJCCI 2016 will be held in conjunction with IC3K 2016. Registration to IJCCI allows free access to the IC3K conference (as a non-speaker).

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef ( and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

INSTICC is the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, a scientific, non-profit, association whose main goals are to serve the international scientific community by promoting, developing and disseminating knowledge in the areas of information systems and technologies, control and communications. To achieve these goals, INSTICC is committed to integrate and support many activities relevant for the international scientific community, including:

  • Promotion of the mobility of renowned researchers, usually involved as keynote speakers at INSTICC events, so that they can share their knowledge with conference delegates;
  • Providing grants to support the presence of many young researchers from all over the world, especially from regions facing economic difficulties, who wish to attend INSTICC conferences;
  • Publication of proceedings, books and journals - some of them in cooperation with distinguished international publishers - widely indexed and made available at appropriate digital libraries;
  • Sponsorship of research projects, proposed by universities and R&D institutes, related to INSTICC main interest areas;
  • Collaboration with international associations, who may technically  co-sponsor INSTICC events, as well as with companies involved in R&D or supporting of the international academic community.
Over the years, these initiatives have brought together a large and very diversified international community spread over more than 141 countries, including more than 500 high profile keynote speakers, over 15600 specialized reviewers and about 46000 authors.
