The 2018 International Conference on Brain Informatics (BI 2018)

Paper Submissions & Publications

Type I: Full Paper Submissions

Papers need to have up to 10 pages in LNCS format.

All full length papers accepted (and all special sessions' full length papers) will be published by Springer as a volume of the series of LNCS/LNAI.

Type II: Abstract Submissions

Abstracts have a word limit of 500 words. Experimental research is particularly welcome. Accepted abstract submissions will be included in the conference program, and will be published as a single, collective proceedings volume.

Title: Include in the title of the abstract all words critical for a subject index. Write your title in sentence case (first letter is capitalized; remaining letters are lower case). Do not bold or italicize your full title.

Author: List all authors who contributed to the work discussed in the abstract. The presenting author must be listed in the first author slot of the list. Be prepared to submit contact information as well as conflict of interest information for each author listed.

Abstract: Enter the body of the abstract and attach any applicable graphic files or tables here. Do not re-enter the title, author, support, or other information that is collected in other steps of the submission form.

Presentation Preference: Authors may select from three presentation formats when submitting an abstract: "poster only", "talk preferred" or "no preference." The "talk preferred" selection indicates that you would like to give a talk, but will accept a poster format if necessary. Marking "poster only" indicates that you would not like to be considered for an oral-presentation session. Selecting "no preference" indicates the author's willingness to be placed in the best format for the program.

Each paper or abstract requires one sponsoring attendee (i.e. someone who registered and is attending the conference). A single attendee cannot sponsor more than two abstracts or papers.

Oral presentations will be selected from both full-length papers and abstracts.


Best Paper awards will be conferred at the conference on the authors of (1) the best research paper, (2) the best student paper. Application-oriented submissions will be considered for the best application paper award.

Post-Conference Journal Publication

The Brain Informatics conferences have formal ties with the Brain Informatics Journal, an international, peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary open-access journal published under Springer. Accepted papers and abstracts from the BI conference, including the Best Paper Award papers, will be expanded and revised for possible publication in the open access Brain Informatics Journal each year. It is fully sponsored and no article-processing fee will be charged for authors of Brain Informatics conference.
