6th Brasilian Conference on Intelligent Systems
Uberlândia, MG, Brazil, 02/10/2017–05/10/2017

The 6th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems (BRACIS), the XIV Encontro Nacional de Inteligência Artificial e Computacional (ENIAC) and the XI Brazilian Symposium in Information and Human Language Technology (STIL) will be held in Uberlândia, MG, Brazil from October 2 to 5, 2017.

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 (21editions), and the Brazilian Symposium on Neural Networks – SBRN (12 editions).

The Encontro Nacional de Inteligência Artificial e Computacional (ENIAC) is a national forum for researchers, practitioners, educators and students to present and discuss innovations, trends, experiences, developments and work in progress in the fields of Artificial and Computational Intelligence.

The Brazilian Symposium in Information and Human Language Technology (STIL) is a multidisciplinary conference covering a broad spectrum of disciplines related to Human Language Technology, such as Linguistics, Computer Science, Psycholinguistics, Information Science, among others. It aims at bringing together both academic and industrial participants working on those areas.

The 2017 editions of BRACIS and ENIAC will be organized as a joint event, with the goal of promoting research in Intelligent Systems and scientific exchange among researchers, practitioners, scientists, and engineers in Artificial and Computational intelligence as well as in related fields. Being a biannual event, STIL will once again join BRACIS and ENIAC as a colocated event as it did in its latest editions.

In 2017, at the first time, BRACIS, ENIAC and STIL will be held also in conjunction with the SBBD (32º Simpósio Brasileiro de Banco de Dados) and KDMiLe (Symposium on Knowledge Discovery, Mining and Learning).

We are looking forward to seeing you in Uberlândia!
