WELCOME TO BRACIS 2016

*** FULL CONFERENCE PROGRAM IS NOW AVAILABLE ***

The Program Committee of the 5th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent System (BRACIS) invites submissions of original research papers for the conference, to be held in Recife, Pernambuco, from October 9th to 12th, 2016.

BRACIS is one of the most important events in Brazil for researchers in the field of Artificial and Computational intelligence. The domain of the conference includes traditional and original topics of both areas and it aims to promote theories and novel applications dealing with the use and analysis of AI/CI techniques in various related fields.

BRACIS also aims for the promotion of international level research by exchanging scientific ideas among researchers, practitioners, scientists and engineers. The yearly event series started in 2012 from the combination of the Brazilian Symposium on Artificial Intelligence – SBIA (21 editions) and the Brazilian Symposium on Neural Networks – SBRN (12 editions).

In this year, it will be held in conjunction with the Robotica 2016 (http://www.robotica.org.br/), XIII ENIAC - Encontro Nacional de Inteligência Artificial e Computacional, IV KDMile - Symposium on Knowledge Discovery, Mining and Learning; and the Thesis and Dissertation Contest - X Concurso de Teses e Dissertações em Inteligência Artificial e Computacional (CTDIAC).
