Call for Special Sessions & Events

We kindly invite you to propose a NaBIC2013 Special Session (SS) and/or event. NaBIC2013 is intended to be a forum for discussing the state-of-the-art in machine intelligence, and address various issues on building up human friendly machines by learning from nature. The conference theme is Nurturing Intelligent Computing Towards Advancement of Machine Intelligence.

Call for SS's
Please collect at least five potential papers, and write paper titles, author information as well as SS organizers information in an email and send to all the SS and Event Chairs. The SS & Event Chairs check the scope of the SS proposals and approve them. When each approved SS has enough number of accepted papers, the SS is established and included in technical program. All papers of both regular sessions SSs will be submitted through the NaBIC2013 paper management system, Easychair, and reviewed with the same review process.

All accepted and registered papers will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE.

Call for Events
Your idea of NaBIC events, such as competitions, panel discussions, demonstration booths, and any others, are welcome. Please describe it, how to realize, schedule for preparation, estimated cost, and others in a proposal form in free format and submit to two SS and Event Chairs. They are reviewed taking account of necessary space, cost, time, attractive effects, and others and approved.
