Call for Papers (pdf)

The 11th International Conference on Intelligent Control and Information Processing (ICICIP2021) will be held in Dali, Yunnan, China during December 3-7, 2021, following the successes of previous events. Situated between Cangshan Mountain and Erhai Lake in southwestern China, in the site of ancient Nanzhao Kingdom (738-937AD) and Dali Kingdom (937-1253AD) as an entry in the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritages, Dali is a multicultural city and an autonomous prefecture with many ethnic minorities living there for thousands of years.

ICICIP2021 aims to provide a high-level international forum for scientists, engineers, and educators to present the state of the art of research and applications in related fields. The conference will feature plenary speeches given by world renowned scholars, regular sessions with broad coverage, and special sessions focusing on popular topics.

Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers to ICICIP2021. In addition, proposals for special sessions within the technical scopes of the symposium are solicited. Special sessions, to be organized by internationally recognized experts, aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. 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 ICICIP2021. A special session proposal should include the session title, a brief description of the scope and motivation, names, contact information and brief biographical information on the organizers.

Authors are invited to submit full-length papers (8 pages maximum) by the submission deadline through the online submission system. Potential organizers are also invited to enlist five or more papers with cohesive topics to form special sessions. The submission of a paper implies that the paper is original and has not been submitted under review or is not copyright-protected elsewhere and will be presented by an author if accepted.

All submitted papers will be refereed by experts in the field based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality, and clarity. The authors of accepted papers will have an opportunity to revise their papers and take consideration of the referees' comments and suggestions. All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by EI (IEEE Catalog number: CFP2189J-CDR and ISBN:978-1-6654-2514-8). Selected high-quality papers will be included in several journal special issues such as Computational Intelligence (IF 2.330), Journal of The Franklin Institute (IF 4.504), International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IF 1.208), Neural Computing and Applications (IF 5.606) and Memetic Computing (IF 5.900).
