Special Sessions

ICIRA 2020 organizing committee is calling for the special session proposals. We encourage the attendees to organize and attract papers on the specific topic of proposed special sessions related to the scope of this conference. A special session has to contain at least 4 papers.

The special session papers should be submitted through the paper review system following the same process of regular session papers. All the papers submitted to special sessions will be reviewed under the same criteria for regular sessions.

If you are interested in organizing a special session, please fill in the Special Session Proposal and forward the application to

Currently, the accepted special sessions are listed as follow.


Special Session 1: Soft Actuators

Soft actuators are usually polymer based actuators that are responsive to diverse stimuli including electrical and magnetic fields, light, heat, and moisture, etc. They have received great attention because of broad applications such flexible mechatronics, various bioengineering devices and soft robotics etc. The aim of this session is to provide an international forum that brings together those actively involved in soft actuator related materials, device and robotic technology. All contributions covering either theoretical development or practical applications are welcome.

Special Session 2: Recent Trends in Computational Intelligence

Computational Intelligence is the theory, design, application and development of biologically motivated computational paradigms. This evolving field of research is focused on solving complex problems and real world challenges using innovative and nature-inspired algorithms. The three main pillars include Neural Network, Fuzzy Logic and Evolutionary Computation. Computational Intelligence methodologies and approaches have been applied to solve numerous problems in various disciplines, especially in robotic such as intelligent navigation, task optimization, and robotic vision. It is gaining popularity along with the recent explosion of research in deep learning, which is a part of a broader family of neural network. We aim to invite new and innovative research that uses Computational Intelligence techniques in solving a wide range of applications.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to the following:
• Computer vision
• Natural language processing
• Intelligent navigation
• Task analysis and optimization
