The organizers of approved workshops/symposiums/special sessions are required to announce the call for papers, assign papers to PC members for reviewing and decide upon the final program.
Accepted Type 1 papers will be included in the BI'17 conference proceedings to be published by Springer as a volume of the LNCS/LNAI series.
The organizers are also welcome to prepare a book proposal based on the topics of the workshop/special session for possible book publication in the Springer Brain Informatics & Health book series.
The BI conferences have formal ties with the Brain Informatics journal (Springer). Accepted papers from the conference, including their Best Paper Award papers, will be expanded and revised for possible inclusion in the Brain Informatics journal each year. It is fully sponsored and no article-processing fee is charged for BI authors.
High quality papers from workshops/special sessions will be selected and considered for publication in special issues of international journals after their papers are extended to a journal-length paper and pass a review process. Tutorial organizers are invited to submit survey papers to the BI journal, and they will be published in the journal after a rigorous review process.
Please send your proposal via email to the workshop chairs; include in the subject line "[BI'17 Tutorial/Workshop]". If you have any questions, please contact us.
