[DMANET] Call for Papers - Bracis 2016

Call for Papers – BRACIS 2016

The Program Committee of the 5th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent System
(BRACIS) invites submissions of original research papers for the
conference, to be held in Recife, Pernambuco, from October 9th to 12th,
2016. BRACIS is one of the most important events in Brazil for researchers
in the field of Artificial and Computational intelligence. The domain of
the conference includes traditional and original topics of both areas and
it aims to promote theories and novel applications dealing with the use and
analysis of AI/CI techniques in various related fields. BRACIS also aims
for the promotion of international level research by exchanging scientific
ideas among researchers, practitioners, scientists and engineers. The
yearly event series started in 2012 from the combination of the Brazilian
Symposium on Artificial Intelligence – SBIA (21 editions) and the Brazilian
Symposium on Neural Networks – SBRN (12 editions). In this year, it will be
held in conjunction with the 3rd KDMile - Symposium on Knowledge Discovery,
Mining and Learning; the National Meeting for Artificial and ComputationaI
Intelligence - XIII Encontro Nacional de Inteligência Artificial e
Computacional (ENIAC); and the Thesis and Dissertation Contest - X
Concurso de Teses e Dissertações em Inteligência Artificial e
Computacional (CTDIAC).
