Double-Blind Reviewing

The review process for WCCI 2022 will be double-blind, i.e. reviewers will not know the authors' identity (and vice versa). Authors should ensure their anonymity in the submitted papers. In brief:

  • authors' names should not be included in the submitted pdf;
  • please refer to your prior work in the third person wherever possible;
  • a reviewer may be able to deduce the authors' identities by using external resources, such as technical reports published on the web. The availability of information on the web that may allow reviewers to infer the authors' identities does not constitute a breach of the double-blind submission policy.

Note that anonymizing your paper is mandatory, and papers that explicitly or implicitly reveal the authors' identities may be rejected.

Paper Submission

Please read the following paper submission guidelines before submitting your papers:

  • Each paper should not reveal author's identities (double-blind review process). 
  • Papers will be checked for plagiarism. The Program Committee reserves the right to desk-reject a paper if it contains elements that are suspected to be plagiarized.
  • Submissions should be original and not currently under review at another venue.
  • Each paper is limited to 8 pages, including figures, tables, and references. A maximum of two extra pages per paper is allowed (i.e, up to 10 pages), at an additional charge of  100 € per extra page.
  • All papers must be submitted through the IEEE WCCI 2022 online submission system. For special session papers, please select the respective special session title under the list of research topics in the submission system.
  • In order for your papers to be included in the congress program and in the proceedings, final accepted papers must be submitted, and the corresponding registration fees must be paid by May 23, 2022 (11:59 PM Anywhere on Earth).
  • IEEE WCCI 2022 will present the Best Overall Paper Awards and the Best Student Paper Awards to recognize outstanding papers published in each of the three conference proceedings (IJCNN 2022, FUZZ-IEEE 2022, IEEE CEC 2022). The awards will be judged by an Awards Committee and the recipient of each award will be given a certificate of the award and a cash prize.
  • It is the policy of WCCI 2022 that new authors cannot be added at the time of submitting final camera ready papers. Please ensure that you are following this guideline to avoid any issues with publication.

If you encounter any problems with the submission of your papers, please contact the conference submission chair.
