Competitions are a key component of academic events, as they comprise effective means for making rapid progress in specific topics. By posing a challenge to the academic community, competition organizers contribute to pushing the state of the art in specific subjects and/or to solve problems of practical importance.
We invite proposals for the 2021 IEEE International Conference on Emerging Techniques in Computational Intelligence (2021 IEEE ICETCI) competition track to be held in Mahindra University Hyderabad, India.
We solicit competition proposals on any topic of interest to the ICETCI community. We especially encourage competition proposals from emerging new fields or new application domains related to computational intelligence. Interdisciplinary topics that will attract a significant cross-section of the community are especially highly encouraged.
Proposals should follow the format of standard data science competitions, where participants will compete to obtain the best score on a machine learning task of interest to the ICETCI community based on a problem and data defined and released by the organizers of the competition.
The results of competitions will be announced during a dedicated session of the 2021 IEEE ICETCI conference, where competition results will be presented and discussed. Competition organizers will be asked to propose a tentative schedule for presentation of the competition and its results during an assigned time slot. Additionally, there will be a joint poster session where participants of all competitions can share and discuss their results. Publication opportunities are being explored for organizers and participants of competitions and will be announced after acceptance of competition.
We invite you to submit proposals to the Competitions chair: firstname.lastname@example.org
A competition program committee will be formed, consisting of experts on both machine learning and challenge organization. Each proposal will be reviewed by at least three members of the committee. The factors that will be considered when evaluating proposals include:
