Important dates (all deadlines are 11:59 p.m. UTC-12:00 - anywhere on Earth!)

Call For Papers

The Program Committee of the 12th Brazilian Conference on Intelligent Systems (BRACIS) invites submissions of research papers including significant and unpublished research on all aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) or Computational Intelligence (CI). 

Key Dates

All deadlines expire at 23:59 AoE (UTC – 12).

Paper format

Papers must be written in English and not exceed 15 pages, including all tables, figures, references, and appendices.

Formatting instructions, as well as templates for Word and LaTeX, are available on the Springer website. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf

Double Blind Reviewing Process

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three experts in the field. However, note that BRACIS submission is double-blind. This means that both the reviewer and author's identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not reveal their identity.

If you have published a non-anonymous version of your paper online before paper submission (e.g. arXiv), you can send an anonymous version to the conference. No references to the non-anonymous version should appear in the anonymous version and you should inform the PC chairs there is a non-anonymous version. You cannot update the online version nor publish information regarding the work on social media during the period of paper review, as it can compromise the double-blind review process.

We strongly encourage making code and data available anonymously (e.g., in an anonymous GitHub repository via Anonymous GitHub or in a Dropbox folder). 


Accepted papers will be included in the BRACIS proceedings and submitted for publication in Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) / Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series.  For each accepted paper, at least one author must register for the conference and present the paper in presence at the conference venue.

Submission Process

Paper submissions will be handled by JEMS. Only PDF files can be uploaded to the JEMS submission system.
