Call for Proposals

Proposal Deadlines for IEEE CEC 2025, FUZZ-IEEE 2025, and IEEE WCCI 2026 

The IEEE Computational Intelligence Society sponsors many conferences each year. We are currently soliciting proposals for the following upcoming conferences:

  • 2025 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2025)
  • 2025 FUZZ-IEEE Conference (FUZZ-IEEE 2025)
  • 2026 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI 2026)

IEEE CEC 2025 and FUZZ-IEEE 2025 are the society’s flagship conferences for evolutionary computation and fuzzy systems respectively. WCCI 2026 combines these conferences with the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks, our flagship conference on neural networks.

CEC 2023 will be held in the USA. FUZZ-IEEE 2023 will be held in Korea. IEEE WCCI 2024 will be held in Japan. We are hopeful that some bids will be submitted from other geographical areas.

Proposals for the IEEE CEC 2025 and FUZZ-IEEE 2025 conferences should be submitted by 30 April 2023. Proposals for IEEE WCCI 2026 conference should be submitted by 30 June 2023 (hard deadlines). This will provide sufficient time for review and decision by IEEE CIS Conferences Committee and Administrative Committee.

Please inform VP Conferences, Marley Vellasco ( and Chair of the Confcom Subcommittee on Future Conferences, Steven Corns ( your intention to provide a proposal or if you would like further information. The process for generating such a proposal can be found on our website.
