The 16th National Meeting on Artificial and Computational Intelligence

XVI Encontro Nacional de Inteligência Artificial e Computacional

Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, October 15 - 18, 2019

>>>> Deadline for paper submissions: July 17, 2019  July 28, 2019 (new deadline) <<<

The National Meeting on Artificial and Computational Intelligence (ENIAC) is one of the main national forums for researchers, practitioners, educators, and students to present and discuss innovations, trends, experiences, and developments in the field of Artificial and Computational Intelligence. In particular, ENIAC is the ideal forum for undergraduate and graduate students to get their first experience in a large scientific conference.

Following up on previous years, there will be a special track for papers authored by Undergraduate students.

The 16th ENIAC will be co-located with the 8th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent System (BRACIS) and the 12th Brazilian Symposium in Information and Human Language Technology (STIL).


We welcome articles containing new ideas, discussions on existing work, practical studies, and experiments relevant to the field of Artificial and Computational Intelligence, which have not been previously published. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Applications of Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
  • Knowledge Acquisition
  • Evolutionary Computation and Metaheuristics
  • Software Tools for Artificial Intelligence
  • Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence
  • Distributed Artificial Intelligence and Multiagent Systems
  • Computational Intelligence
  • Intelligent Human-Computer Interfaces
  • Fuzzy Systems
  • Data Mining
  • Text and Web Mining
  • Ontologies
  • Natural Language Processing
  • Automated Planning and Scheduling
  • Logic Programming
  • Automated Reasoning
  • Model-Based Reasoning
  • Artificial Neural Networks
  • Knowledge Representation
  • Representation Learning
  • Deep Learning
  • Knowledge Base Construction
  • Intelligent Robotics
  • Decision Support Systems
  • Hybrid Intelligent Systems
  • Intelligent Information Systems
  • Intelligent Tutoring Systems
  • Artificial Life
  • Computer Vision
  • Data Science


Following up on ENIAC 2018, we will have a special track for papers whose first author is an Undergraduate student. Such papers will undergo the same reviewing process as papers in the main track. However, the best papers in this track will be invited to make an oral presentation in a special session, and will run for the Best Undergraduate Paper Award.


Manuscripts are limited to twelve (12) pages including text, references, appendices, tables, and figures. Articles may be written either in Portuguese or English, using the SBC article style:

Papers written in Portuguese must have title and abstract in English. Manuscripts that do not follow the formatting guidelines might be rejected without reviewing.

Submissions should be carried out online using the JEMS system:

Please select the appropriate track (Undergraduate track for papers whose main author is an Undergraduate student, Main track for the others).

The review process will be double-blind (authors' names and institutions must be omitted in the papers). All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two experts in the field. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their work either in a poster session. A selected group of papers will also be invited to make an oral presentation. All accepted papers will likely be published electronically through the CEUR-WS platform ( There will be made no distinction between presented in oral and/or poster format in the proceedings.


Authors of selected papers will be invited to present their work in a special session, and will run for a Best Paper Award. These papers might be invited to submit extended versions of their work to be appreciated for publication in special issues of international journals.

Invited Speakers

Dr. Felipe Meneguzzi

Felipe Meneguzzi is a professor of computer science at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul - PUCRS where he leads the Group on Autonomous Systems. Dr Meneguzzi holds a PhD in Computer Science from King's College London (2009), as well as a M.S. and B.S. degrees in Computer Science from PUCRS (2003 and 2001, respectively). His research centers on the topics of multiagent systems, with focus on BDI agent reasoning, normative reasoning and automated planning and their integration in agent programming languages and autonomous systems. Prior to his current position, Felipe worked as Project Scientist in Multiagent Systems at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute until 2012 after completing postdoctoral fellowship at the same institution under the supervision of Dr. Katia Sycara. He also organized the AAAI Symposium on Proactive Assistant Agents (2010), and serves on the international conference program committee such as IJCAI, AAMAS, PRIMA and EUMAS, as well as a regular reviewer of journals such as: Knowledge Engineering Review (KER), Theoretical Computer Science (TCS) and Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (JAAMAS). Felipe is a PQ Level 2 researcher at CNPq and received a Google Research Award for Latin America in 2016, having been one of the four finalists of the Microsoft Research Awards in 2013.
