Call For Papers

======= Call for Papers: IDEAL'13, October 2013, Hefei, China =======

The 14th International Conference on Intelligent Data Engineering and
Automated Learning (IDEAL'2013)
October 20-23, 2013, Hefei, Anhui, China

The International Conference on Intelligent Data Engineering and
Automated Learning (IDEAL) is an annual international conference
dedicated to emerging and challenging topics in intelligent data
analysis, data mining and their associated learning systems and
paradigms. Its core themes include: the Big Data challenges, Machine
Learning, Data Mining, Information Retrieval and Management, Bio- and
Neuro-Informatics, Bio-Inspired Models (including Neural Networks,
Evolutionary Computation and Swarm Intelligence), Agents and Hybrid
Intelligent Systems, and Real-world Applications of Intelligent
Techniques. Other related and emerging themes and topics are also

The conference provides a unique opportunity and stimulating forum for
presenting and discussing the latest theoretical advances and real-
world applications in Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Data
Analysis. Authors and researchers are warmly invited to submit their
latest findings and research work to the conference.

Potential session/workshop organizers are invited to enlist potential
papers in a cohesive topic for their special session(s)/workshops.
Proposals and enquiries can be sent to the Programme Co-Chair, Frank
Klawonn ( More details are on the next page or
can be found on the conference website

Instructions for Authors

Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts (in pdf format)
written in English by the deadline via the conference online

Conference History

In recent years, the IDEAL conference has been held in many countries
or continents such as Natal, Brazil (2012), Norwich, England (2011),
Paisley, Scotland (2010), Burgos, Spain (2009), and Daejeon, Korea
(2008). The 14th International Conference, IDEAL 2014, will set foot
to Mainland China and will be held from 20th to 23rd October 2013, in
Hefei, China, hosted by the USTC-Birmingham Joint Research Institute
of Intelligent Computation and Its Applications (UBRI,


Hefei, the capital of Anhui Province, is a fine historical city
characterized by a green environment and both modern areas and
historical sights. The city is located centrally in China and about
100 miles (160 km) from Nanjing, or 300 miles (500 km) from Shanghai.
Hefei has its own airport and an excellent railway connection to many
cities of China. It is also easy to reach via airplane from Beijing.
Hefei, well known as a historic site famous from the Three Kingdoms
Period and the home town of Lord Bao, is a city with a history of more
than 2500 years. The city of Hefei is also a well-known "Green City"
across the nation. It is a fast developing city which still preserves
historical sights and has many local attractions.

============== Call for Workshops and Special Sessions ==============

Special Sessions

In addition to the regular sessions, there will be special sessions
devoted to emerging topics and areas with growing attention.
Researchers and prospective organisers are invited to submit a one-
page proposal for a special session to the special session chair
( by April 26, 2013. Each proposal should
include the following information:

o The title of the special session.
o The organizers with their affiliations.
o A description of why the topic is of special interest and how
it fits to the scope of IDEAL.

Each special session preferably consists of four or more
presentations. Special sessions receiving less than 4 papers will be
merged into a suitable regular session.


Workshops focus on new and emerging topics. In contrast to special
sessions, workshops should include an introductory talk or tutorial on
the topic and will have final discussions at the end of the workshop.
Apart from the introductory talk in the discussion, Workshops should
preferably include six or more additional presentations. Researchers
or prospective organisers are invited to submit a one-page proposals
for workshops to the special session chair ( by
April 26, 2013. In addition to the information required for special
sessions, workshop proposal should also include the following:

o The name(s) of the presenter(s) of the introductory talk.
o A theme for the discussion.

Paper Format and Review Process

The paper format of Special Sessions and Workshops is the same as for
the main track of the conference and so is their submission and review
process (while each Special Session or Workshop can appoint its own
reviewers if necessary, in additional to the main PC). All accepted
papers will be included in the conference proceedings.
