Types of Contributions

Three types of contributions are considered:

  1. Regular Papers (Papers). A Paper presents significant research, development, or application of broad computational intelligence concepts. Papers should present a well-rounded treatment of a problem, which places the presented solution in the context of related research work. The maximum length for Papers is typically 10 pages of formatted text (including figures and references) in standard IEEE two-column format. Authors of Papers should specify on the first page of their submitted manuscript up to 5 keywords.
  2. Survey/Review Papers (Surveys). A Survey is a well-focused manuscript that puts recent progress into a broader perspective and accurately assesses the limits of existing theories. Surveys will typically be limited to 15 pages in IEEE two-column style format.
  3. Correspondence (Letters). A Letter is intended to serve as a vehicle for rapid publication of less discursive material. It may include brief research results, comments or correction of published results, and rebuttals in connection with previous publications. The maximum length for Letters is 6 pages in IEEE two-column format. Letters go through a shorter, one time (typically) review process.
