1st IEEE NCAI 2021 solicits research papers describing significant and innovative research contributions to different fields of artificial Intelligence. Submissions are invited in wide range of research areas including but not limited to following topics:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) offers society and the business-world novel and radically different approaches to knowledge discovery, learning, problem-solving, and decision making. Based on intelligent computing technologies that empower machines to observe, listen, and learn beyond the typical capabilities of humans, AI facilitates business decision making by offering real-time models with enhanced accuracy and efficiencies. Applications are not limited to business and include smart cities and their governance, so that socio-economic benefits are shared by the many and not just a few. 

  • Artificial Intelligence Applications
  • Autonomous Systems
  • Assistive Robotics
  • Intelligent Systems
  • Convolutional Neural Networks
  • Cybersecurity and AI
  • Data Fusion
  • Data Mining and Information Retrieval
  • Decision Support Systems
  • Artificial Neural Networks
  • Deep Learning and Big Data Analytics
  • Deep Learning and Cybersecurity
  • Deep Learning and Forensics
  • Deep Learning and Real Time Systems
  • Deep Learning and Social Networks
  • Biologically inspired neural network

Paper submissions should clearly explain and highlight how the research topic affects the management and operation of businesses, either in the public or private sector. We are interested in illustrative case studies of AI in practice, empirical papers, and literature reviews that help set the research agenda for AI for social Good.

Papers should explain how they help accelerate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, identifying the practicality and scalability of any proposed solution, particularly up to 2030. 

There are two possible paper submissions at AI4G conference:

  • (1) full paper (up to 6 pages) and
  • (2) extended abstract (up to 3 pages). Both types of submissions are subject to conference peer review for quality and alignment to the conference theme, however, only full papers (if accepted) will be published in IEEE Xplore. Authors of accepted extended abstracts will deliver a presentation of their research with their abstract being included in the conference program

Paper submission guidlines

The papers must be submitted on standard IEEE format against the topics mentioned in Call For Papers.
