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,

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.
