Web-based systems, social networks and multi-agent systems very often need these tools for working out consistent knowledge states, resolving conflicts and making decisions. ICCCI 2017 is the 9th edition of the conference organized by the University of Cyprus and Wroclaw University of Science and Technology in Poland, in cooperation with the IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Computational Collective Intelligence. The aim of the conference is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research in the computer-based methods of collective intelligence and their applications in (but not limited to) such fields as group decision making, consensus computing, knowledge integration, semantic web, social networks and multi-agent systems. Instructions to Authors Prospective authors of papers are invited to submit contributions for presentations at ICCCI 2017. The submissions should present the results of original research or innovative practical applications relevant to the conference topics. Practical experiences with state-of-the-art in CCI methodologies are also acceptable to reflect lessons of unique value for the conference attendees. Contributions should be original and not published elsewhere or intended to be published during the review process. The conference language is English. The conference proceedings of ICCCI 2017 will be published in the prestigious Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series by Springer and indexed by ISI(CPCI-S), Web of Science, EI, Scopus, DBLP, ACM Digital Library. All submissions should follow the LNCS/LNAI style and not exceed 10 pages. At least one full registration is required for each accepted paper in order to be included in the ICCCI 2017 proceedings. Each paper is to be submitted electronically as a single PDF file through EasyChair at http://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/~george/lm/lm.php?tk=U09DTkVUCQkJU09DTkVUQGxpc3RzLnVmbC5lZHUJOXRoIEludGVybmF0aW9uYWwgQ29uZmVyZW5jZSBvbiBDb21wdXRhdGlvbmFsIENvbGxlY3RpdmUgSW50ZWxsaWdlbmNlIChJQ0NDSSAyMDE3KTogRmlyc3QgQ2FsbCBmb3IgUGFwZXJzIGFuZCBTcGVjaWFsIFNlc3Npb25zICYgV29ya3Nob3BzIFByb3Bvc2Fscwk4OAlMaXN0cwkyNDcJY2xpY2sJeWVzCW5v&url=https%3A%2F%2Feasychair.org%2Fconferences%2F%3Fconf%3Diccci2017 . To ensure high quality, all papers will be thoroughly reviewed by the ICCCI 2017 International Program Committee. Referees will be asked to nominate papers for a Best Paper award to be announced at the conference. All accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors who must register for the conference and pay the author registration fee. A selected number of accepted and personally presented papers, will be expanded and revised for possible inclusion in special issues of high quality scientific journals.

They intend to provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to present and discuss their work, as well as to offer a forum for interaction among a broader community of researchers. A Special Session or Workshop will consist of a group of papers in a sub-discipline of Computational Collective Intelligence related to the main topics of ICCCI 2017. The papers will be required to meet the same standards as ICCCI 2017 papers and will be published in the conference proceedings, in a bound volume by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series. All the Special Sessions and Workshops will be centralized as tracks in the same conference submission and reviewing system (EasyChair) as the regular papers. Please send the Special Session and Workshop proposals with the following information: · Title & acronym of the special session · Brief profiles of special session organizers · General description of the special session scope · List of topics · Proposed Session Program Committee (to be invited) The format for the Special Session or Workshop proposal should follow the pattern of the template available on the conference web site. The organizers will be responsible for the advertisement and promotion of the Special Sessions or Workshops and the conference including the Special Sessions and Workshops webpage preparation. The management of papers review will be achieved by Special Session and Workshops Committees, using the Conference System (a separate EasyChair track will be provided for each Special Session and Workshop). The organizers are responsible for managing the review process. All the reviews should be submitted through EasyChair. Each paper should obtain at least two reviews.
