Call for papers

34th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems (BRACIS)

BRACIS 2024 Call for Papers – The 34th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems (BRACIS) will be held in Belém, Brazil, from November 17-21, 2024. This is Brazil’s major AI and CI event. It invites the submission of research papers on various AI topics. Key dates: submission by June 13, 2024; notifications by August 10, 2024; and camera-ready copies by August 20, 2024.

The conference features a double-anonymous review process and introduces four tracks, including a new “Published Papers in Top-Venues” track. Best papers may be invited for special issue publications. Submissions are via JEMS. The website with more information about the event will be published soon. More details are as follows.

The Program Committee of the 34th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems (BRACIS) invites submissions of original research papers for the conference to be held in Belém, PA, Brazil – ** – from November 17th to 21st, 2024.

BRACIS is the most important event in Brazil for researchers interested in publishing significant and novel results related to Artificial and Computational Intelligence.

The Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems (BRACIS) originated from the combination of the two most important scientific events in Brazil in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Computational Intelligence (CI): the Brazilian Symposium on Artificial Intelligence – SBIA (21 editions), and the Brazilian Symposium on Neural Networks – SBRN (12 editions). 

BRACIS, which previously had 12 editions, will now be recognized as the 34th edition when considering its history and the 21 editions of SBIA. The 34th BRACIS plays a pivotal role in AI in Brazil, serving as a hub for promoting theoretical concepts and applications in Artificial and Computational Intelligence.

The event fosters a space for exchanging scientific ideas among researchers, practitioners, scientists, and engineers working toward advancing Artificial and Computational Intelligence science.

This aligns with the goals of other major international conferences proposed in a similar period of time in the history of AI, such as the 37th AAAI, 32nd IJCAI, and 37th NeurIPS (formerly called NIPS). The 33 previous editions of BRACIS highlight the pioneering of the Brazilian AI Community.

Please note that this year, we are inaugurating the track submissions. See further details in the Submission Details section.




– Paper Registration – June 30, 2024 – AoE. 
– Paper submission – July 01, 2024 – AoE.
– Notification to authors – August 21, 2024.
– Camera-ready copy due – August 31, 2024.


Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to be appreciated for publication in special issues after the conference.


Please note that the BRACIS submission is double-anonymous. This means that both the reviewer and author’s identities and institutions are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not reveal their identity.
If you have published a non-anonymous version of your paper online before paper submission (e.g. arXiv), you can send an anonymous version to the conference. No references to the non-anonymous version should appear in the anonymous version, and you should inform the PC chairs that there is a non-anonymous version. You cannot update the online version nor publish information regarding the work on social media during the paper review period, as it can compromise the double-double-anonymous review process.
We strongly encourage making code and data available anonymously (e.g., in an anonymous GitHub repository via Anonymous GitHub or in a Dropbox folder).

Submitted papers must be written in English and be at most 15 pages, including all tables, figures, references, and appendices. Formatting instructions, as well as templates for Word and LaTeX, are available at Conference Proceedings guidelines. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three experts in the field. Accepted papers will be included in the BRACIS proceedings and submitted for publication in Springer in Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. Only PDF files can be uploaded to the submission system.
For each accepted paper, at least one author must register for the conference and present the paper at the conference venue.

Submissions must be made online using JEMS.

Generative AI models (including Chat-GPT, BARD, LLaMA, Gemini, etc.) or similar LLMs do not meet the article authorship criteria for BRACIS 2024. However, we encourage articles that describe research on or involving such advanced AI models and tools.
Authors who use an LLM in any part of the article writing process take full responsibility for all content, including checking for plagiarism and correcting all text. We suggest that this use be properly mentioned in the Acknowledgements section, with no harm in the evaluation process.

***** Tracks submission: New in this edition ****
This year, BRACIS will have four tracks:
1. Main track: original works showing novel AI methods with sound results.
2. AI applications for Social Good: original works presenting novel Social Good applications using established AI methods.
3. General applications: original works presenting novel applications using established AI methods, naturally considering the ethical aspects of the application.
4. Published papers: papers published in top AI conferences or journals in 2023 or 2024 (as a guide, consider the international rankings CS Metrics and CS rankings by selecting AI area or subareas; others can also be considered).

Tracks 1-3 will have no distinction regarding the publication format and the publication in the proceedings. For Track 4, authors must submit a publishable 2-page extended abstract (excluding references) that does not violate the copyright of the previous publication. Track 4 does not need to be double-blind, as authors must cite the venue of the previous publication. The accepted papers of all tracks will have the same slot for presentation during the conference.
