Call For Papers

The information technology revolution is rapidly changing our daily lives. Breakthroughs in computing and telecommunications, based on information, communication and control theory, Turing’s computational model, and powerful processors, are dramatically boosting productivity. Emerging artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are bringing a new information revolution.

As big global research world look to AI to boost technological innovation and economic development, this workshop focuses on three key issues in AI research — autonomous and sensing systems, emergent intelligence, and collaborative and swarm intelligence. Specifically, this workshop is dedicated to harnessing the novel properties of super materials to develop devices that extend our senses, and with real-time collection of massive data, supporting autonomous decision-making based on multi-source big data. Intelligent cognition strives to develop collaborative autonomous agents with cognitive capabilities, like those of humans, by simulating the neural mechanisms of cognitive behaviors, and to enhance the capabilities of processing big data and developing brain-like intelligence. Another focus is the collaboration between biological, mechanical, and electronic systems, as well as the mechanisms of self-organization and emergence for multi-agent collaboration and decision-making. Researchers hope to optimize integration and collaboration between humans and machines. The workshop promotes their transfer into practical applications, for developing intelligent ICT systems and pursuing artificial intelligence applications for contents, platforms, networks and devices.

The first International Workshop on Ultra-Intelligent Computing/Communication (UIC 2020) aims at addressing advances in research on ICT, covering topics ranging from ICT technology issues to emerging AI applications for ICTs. UIC 2020 solicits original, unpublished contributions in all aspects of AI in information and communication. Submitted articles must not be concurrently considered elsewhere for publication. We also encourage authors to submit short papers on the early stages of research or development in progress, which present important new challenges. Position papers on new idea and industry papers are also welcome.

The workshop focuses on topics related to ultra-intelligent computing and communication, which include, but are not limited to

  • Information and Communications Technology
  • AI for Image Processing and Multimedia
  • AI Applications for Networking and IoT
  • AI for Control and Decision Systems
  • AI Applications for Mobile Communication
  • AI for Energy, Computer Systems and Semiconductor Device
  • AI for Data Analysis, Big Data and Cloud
  • AI for Neuroscience and Neuroengineering
  • AI for eHealth
  • AI Foundation


All papers must be submitted electronically, in PDF format, and uploaded on EDAS. The direct link for paper submission is http://edas.info/N26107 (Ultra-Intelligent Computing and Communication Track). There are two options for the submissions, either a full paper or a short paper. We decided to allow the submission of short papers in order to accommodate the most recent research outcomes. The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, double-column pages using at least 10 pt (or higher) size fonts on A4 or letter pages in IEEE style format. The maximum number of pages is 6 for full papers and 3 for short papers. Detailed formatting and submission instructions will be available on the conference web site (http://icoin.org).
