Detail Information

Special Events: AICS and CMDC

You are cordially invited to participate in the 2021 International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Security (AICS2021) and the CDMC2021 data mining competition. The two events both in association with the 28th International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP2021), Bali, Indonesia.

The purpose of the 14th International Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Security Workshop (AICS2021) is to raise the awareness of cybersecurity, promote the potential of industrial applications, and give young researchers exposure to the main issues related to the topic and to ongoing works in this area. AICS2021 will provide a forum for researchers, security experts, engineers, and research students to demonstrate new technologies, present latest research works, share ideas, and discuss future directions in the fields of artificial intelligence and cybersecurity.

The CDMC2021 is a challenging, multi-month research and practice competition, focusing on application of knowledge discovery techniques to address cyber security challenges in real world applications. The competition is open to multi-person teams or individuals worldwide, particularly welcome university students, undergraduate or postgraduate in the field of data science, network engineering, cyber security, and artificial intelligence.

Paper Submission

Online submission: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=iconip2021  

Important: ICONIP 2021 can only receive full paper submission through this EasyChair.

Submissions should be in the Springer conference format.

Review style: single-blind, so author names do NOT need to be removed in your submission.

Workshops: are organized outside Springer OCS, so please use keywords to indicate workshop abbreviation and email the workshop organizer your paper number.

Papers should be written in English and follow the Springer LNCS format. Paper submissions is single-blind review, so author names can be shown in the submission. The submission of a paper implies that the paper is original and has not been submitted under review or is not copyright-protected elsewhere and will be presented by an author if accepted. All submitted papers will be refereed by experts in the field based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality, and clarity.

The Proceedings will be published in the Springer’s series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS). Selected papers will be published in a special issue of an SCI journal.

Final papers after acceptance will normally be 10 pages up to be a maximum of 12 pages in length. Submitted papers should be no longer than 12 pages. The page count includes everything, including references and appendices.

Call for Tutorials

ICONIP 2021 will feature tutorials covering topics related to neural information processing. You are invited to submit a tutorial proposal before 1 July 2021.
A tutorial proposal should include a Title, a Short introduction to the topic, An outline of the tutorial, an Expected length of the tutorial (2h or 4h), level of the tutorial (introductory or advanced), and Names, affiliations, websites, and bios of presenters.

Proposals should be submitted to Tutorials Co-Chairs:

  1. Suryono (email: suryono@fisika.fsm.undip.ac.id)
  2. M. Agni C. Bhakti (email: muhammad.bhakti@sampoernauniversity.ac.id)
