*** First Call for Papers and Special Sessions & Workshops Proposals ***

9th International Conference on Computational Collective Intelligence

ICCCI 2017

Hilton Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus

27 - 29 September, 2017

Computational Collective Intelligence is most often understood as an AI
subfield dealing with soft computing methods which enable making group
decisions or processing knowledge among autonomous units acting in
distributed environments. 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 .
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.

Call for Special Sessions and Workshops Proposals

ICCCI 2017 invites proposals for Special Sessions and Workshops to be
held during the conference. 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
 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.
