ENIAC 2021 call for papers

18th National Meeting on Artificial and Computational Intelligence Online

ENIAC 2021 is a series of successful meetings bringing together Artificial Intelligence and Computational Intelligence, supported by Brazilian Special Interest Groups on Artificial Intelligence and Computational Intelligence from Brazilian Computer Society.

Such event provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, educators, and students to present and discuss innovations, trends, experiences and developments in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Computational Intelligence. In particular, it is the ideal event for undergraduate and postgraduate students to submit and present their first papers!



Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the sanitary and economical related issues, the ENIAC 2021 will be held online as part of BRACIS 2021.

Following up on ENIAC 2020, 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 on 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:

SBC Template:

Papers written in Portuguese must have titles and abstracts in English.

Manuscripts that do not follow the formatting guidelines might be rejected without review


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


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 an oral presentation or in a poster session. All accepted papers will likely be published electronically through the SBC Open Lib – SOL. There will be no distinction between papers presented in oral or poster format in the proceedings.
