IEEE Canada International Humanitarian Technology Conference (IHTC) 2017

Date: July. 20-22, 2017
Location: Toronto, Canada

The third IEEE Canada International Humanitarian Technology Conference (IHTC 2017) will focus on the general areas of technology for improving the humanity, especially for improving the lives of under served peoples (including aboriginal/indigenous peoples), disabled, aging and sick. It will also focus on technologies to assist in disaster and war situations. Another focus is humanitarian engineering educational programs. The conference will feature outstanding keynote speakers, workshops, a student paper competition and peer-reviewed papers. Humanitarian technology-oriented technical papers and papers describing social and economic factors related to humanitarian technology implementation are welcome for the conference. If you have been doing technical work related to humanity in any aspect, this IEEE Conference is the right forum to promote the cause of your work, get recognition and to connect with the like minded people. Please contact the conference chair at

Important Dates:

30 April 2017 - Reviewers' Feedback to Authors
31 May 2017 - Submission of camera ready papers

IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence for Security and Defense Applications (CISDA) 2017

Date: November 27-December 1, 2017
Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

The symposium will be held within the 2017 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI 2017).

MOTIVATION Given the current global security environment, there has been increased interest within the security and defense communities in novel techniques for solving challenging problems. The genesis of this interest lies in the fact that repeated attempts of using traditional techniques have left many important problems unsolved, and in some cases, not addressed. New problems have emerged within the broad areas of security and defense that are difficult to tackle with conventional methods, thus requiring new techniques for detecting and adapting to emerging threats. The purpose of the symposium is to present current and ongoing efforts in computational intelligence (e.g., neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, and other emerging learning or optimization techniques) as applied to security and defense problems.

SCOPE This symposium aims at publishing high-quality research efforts rooted in Computational Intelligence as applied to defense and security problems. First-class contributions addressing research challenges in these areas and their CI-based solutions (i.e., neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, rough sets, granular computing, and other emerging learning or optimization techniques) are solicited.

TOPICS The list of topics is available at the conference website.

Special Session Proposals: April 2, 2017
Paper Submissions: July 2, 2017
Early Registration: September 24, 2017

Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering

The Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering (CJECE), ISSN-0840-8688, issued quarterly, has been publishing high-quality refereed scientific papers in all areas of electrical and computer engineering since 1976.

Sponsored by IEEE Canada (The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc., Canada), the CJECE complements other IEEE technical journals and will be of particular interest to anyone involved in research and development activities in all the subfields of electrical and computer engineering (ECE) and in particular in the increasingly multidisciplinary areas of ECE. This is one of many avenues for IEEE Canada to provide increased scientific and professional value for its members. As a service to members, subsidies allow the subscription fee to be kept affordable for individuals, libraries, and organizations alike.

We invite you to browse our website and IEEE Xplore, and subscribe to the CJECE. You can subscribe at any time and receive all the issues for the year. For any comments or suggestions, you are welcome to contact us.

CJECE publications covers all sub-disciplines of Electrical and Computer Engineering. This all-encompassing nature allows it to provide support for the wide variety of cutting-edge research and scientific directions in this fast-paced field. To provide the highest value to authors and the readership, the journal boasts an exceptionally short sub-to-pub process. The first decisions are provided to the authors in about 2 months from the date the paper enters the full review process.This is possible thanks to a dedicated editorial team operating the process within the state-of-the-art ScholarOne Manuscripts portal. The publications process is handled like other IEEE technical journals via the IEEE Publications in Piscataway, USA.

The journal accepts papers in two regular tracks of 'original article' and 'Review/Tutorial'. Every year, there are also conference special issues publishing extended versions of distinguished papers of conferences such as the Canadian Conference on Electrical and Computer Engineering (CCECE).
