Dear colleagues, 

  On behalf of the CCI2020 Organizing Committee [3], it is our great
pleasure to invite you to the 2020 JOINT CONGRESS ON COMPUTATIONAL
MASHHAD, IRAN. The congress theme is 'AI-FOR-GOOD' and is scheduled on
the national 'Good-Deeds' week. As such, we particularly hope to address
the profound ways in which artificial intelligence can serve human
societies in good causes. 

Mashhad is a historic city, colloquially also recognized as the city of
Ferdowsi, the Persian language's epic poet and his Shahnameh (the story
of kings). It is located in the northeast of the country, near the
borders with Turkmenistan and Afghanistan. It was a major oasis along
the ancient Silk Road connecting with Merv to the East. The CCI2020
itself consists of three well-established conferences on swarm
intelligence and evolutionary computing (CSIEC2020), fuzzy systems
(ICFS2020), and intelligent systems (CIS2020). It is also officially
co-sponsored by the International Fuzzy Systems Association (IFSA) in
addition to two Iranian societies on fuzzy Systems (IFSS) and
Intelligent Systems. The congress has both English and Persian speaking
sessions. More details can be found on our website: cci.um.ac.ir [2] and
the attached poster. 

We would love to have your contributions at this congress by submitting
your recent works, participating at the workshops, and joining the
national competitions. We also appreciate your good help with informing
your colleagues and friends about CCI2020. The extended Paper submission
deadline is November 22, 2019.

(click to see pdf description) CALL FOR PAPERS [4]:  Papers should be
submitted electronically through the congress web site. All regular and
industrial papers will be peer-reviewed and ranked based on the criteria
of originality, significance, quality, and clarity. Submitted papers
should follow the conference style as explained on our website,

CALL FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS [3]: Special sessions are expected to be
organized by well-recognized experts on the topic. They aim to bring
together researchers in special focus topics. Cross-fertilization of the
various aspects of the congress and newly emerging topics are strongly
encouraged. The extended deadline for special sessions proposals is
November 6, 2019. 

CALL FOR TUTORIALS AND  [3]WORKSHOPS [3]: The organizing committee of
CCI2020 invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with
the main event. These workshops aim to provide participants from the
industry as well as the university students a familiarity with the
various paradigms of computational intelligence, the available tools, as
well as the emerging topics in computational intelligence. They may be
also used to showcase challenging industrial problems and successful
industrial implementations of computational intelligence in various

We strongly encourage the workshop organizers to make their workshops
highly interactive and include discussions, Q&A and panel sessions to
facilitate a lively exchange of ideas among the attendees. 

Workshops can be two hours, half or full-day events depending on the
scope and the content of the workshop. 

Accordingly, interested industries/organizations are invited to submit
suggestions related to artificial intelligence both to the Workshops
Chair, Dr. Aliakbar Akbari (akbari at um.ac.ir), and the CCI2020
secretariat (cci at um.ac.ir), by November 6, 2019. 

Proposals are limited to no more than five pages and should contain the
following information: 

 	* Organizers (names, affiliations, email addresses and phone numbers;
identify one person as the primary contact person)
 	* Description of the workshop: abstract, objectives, goals, relevance
to CCI2020, and expected outcomes
 	* The motivation for why a CCI2020 workshop on this topic is needed
 	* Description of the target audience and estimated number of
 	* Workshop duration, format, activities, and schedule
 	* List of committed program committee members
 	* Preliminary list of invited speakers (if any)
 	* Short biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant
qualifications and experience

All proposals will be evaluated by the Workshop Committee, and the
accepted proposals will be announced by November 22, 2019. The best
workshop will be awarded by the Workshop Committee. 

CALL FOR COMPETITIONS [3]: The organizing committee of CCI2020 has
decided to hold competitions based on real problems from the industry.
Accordingly, interested industries are invited to submit their problems
related to artificial intelligence to the Competitions Chair, Dr. Saeid
Abrishami (s-abrishami at um.ac.ir), and the CCI2020 secretariat
(cci at um.ac.ir), by November 6, 2019. 

Each proposal should contain (a) a description of a real problem from
the industry, including its goals and rules, b) its input and output
data, if applicable, (c) the evaluation procedure, (d) suggested award
level and industry support, and (e) a biography of the organizers
including their contact information. If there are any real data about
the problem, please provide detailed guidelines on how the participants
may access it. 

All proposals will be evaluated by the Competitions Committee, and the
accepted proposals will be announced by November 22, 2019. All accepted
proposals will be announced as a competition, and the best solution(s)
will be awarded by the Competitions Committee. 

VENUE: CCI 2020 will be held in the College of Engineering, Ferdowsi
University of Mashhad (FUM) [5], Mashhad, Iran.
