Call For Papers
Papers for IEEE WCCI 2020 should be submitted electronically using the Congress website and will be refereed by experts in the fields and ranked based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality and clarity.

On behalf of the IEEE WCCI 2020 Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the bi-annual IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (IEEE WCCI), which is the largest technical event in the field of computational intelligence. The IEEE WCCI 2020 will host three conferences: The 2020 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2020 – co-sponsored by International Neural Network Society – INNS), the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2020), and the 2020 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2020) under one roof. It encourages cross-fertilization of ideas among the three big areas and provides a forum for intellectuals from all over the world to discuss and present their research findings on computational intelligence.

IEEE WCCI 2020 will be held in Glasgow, Scotland, UK – one of Europe’s most dynamic cultural capitals and the “world’s friendliest city” – located in Scotland, “the most beautiful country in the world” [Rough Guides 2015, 2017]. Steeped in culture, rich in history, and alive with excitement, visitors will sense these as they walk through its elegant Victorian streets, squares, parks and gardens. The Conference is being hosted at the prestigious Scottish Event Campus (SEC), which was a key venue for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014 [].

IEEE Computational Intelligence Society has maintained its position as a leader of journals in computational intelligence. CIS journals sustained their status as premier scholarly publications, earning high rankings in the Journal Citation Report by Thomson Reuters.
