Proceedings Accepted papers will be published in conference proceedings (hard copy). If any participant paid the registration fee and could not attempt the Conference for some reason, usually we send the Proceedings. All submitted papers will be reviewed by a double-blind (at least two reviewers), non-blind, and participative peer review. These two kinds of review will support the selection process of those that will be accepted for their presentation at the conference, as well as those to be selected for their publication in Int'l Journal of Computing http://computingonline.net/eng/ Deadlines Submission Deadline July 1, 2012 Notification of Acceptance July 15, 2012 Delivery of full papers July 25, 2012 Submission instructions: Prospective authors are requested to send an abstract or a paper (maximum 6 pages including figures, tables and references) for review by the International Program Committee. All submissions must be written in English, starting with a succinct statement of the problem, the result achieved, their significance and comparison with previous work, as well as a list of references. The submissions should also include: title of proposed paper, authors names, affiliations, addresses, name of author to contact for correspondence, e-mail address and fax of contact author, topics which best describe the paper (max. 5 keywords). You can get examples of appearance in Downloads. Please submit your paper exclusively in electronic media. Paper should be submitted electronically by 1 July 2012 in postscript (preferable) or pdf format. Please put the conference name - ICNNAI'2012 on all correspondence and on the mailing envelope. Registration To register for the conference, please fill in the enclosed form and return it by e-mail or fax.
