On behalf of the IEEE WCCI 2018 Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the bi-annual IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (IEEE WCCI), which is the largest technical event in the field of computational intelligence. The IEEE WCCI 2018 will host three conferences:
  • 2018 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2018 - co-sponsored by International Neural Network Society - INNS)
  • 2018 IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE 2018)
  • 2018 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC 2018)
It encourages cross-fertilization of ideas among the three big areas and provides a forum for intellectuals from all over the world to discuss and present their research findings on computational intelligence.

IEEE WCCI 2018 will be held at the Windsor Convention Centre, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Known as one of the most beautiful cities in the World, Rio de Janeiro is the first city to receive the certificate of World Heritage for its Cultural Landscape.
