Call for Papers

In view of the resurgence of COVID cases in the host country, it is now decided to hold the Conference in completely Virtual Mode.

The First International Conference on Emerging Techniques in Computational Intelligence, ETCI 2021, technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, will be held at Hyderabad on Aug 25-27, 2021. This aims to highlight the evolution of topics, frontline research and multiple applications, in the domain of Computational Intelligence from the mainstream foundations to novel investigations. The conference comprises of one day of tutorial sessions followed by two days of Keynote Lectures by invited international experts from Industry and Academia, paper presentations and competitions. Also, the conference hosts several special sessions on emerging technologies and applications in computational intelligence. The Conference is supported by industry relevant tutorials conducted by NVidia, TechMahindra and others.
