General Submissions

IEEE Intelligent Systems, a bimonthly publication of the IEEE Computer Society, provides peer-reviewed, cutting-edge articles on the theory and applications of systems that perceive, reason, learn, and act intelligently. The magazine serves software engineers, systems designers, information managers, knowledge engineers, researchers, and professionals in such fields as business, manufacturing, medicine, law, defense, and the sciences. As a premier IEEE publication, IEEE Intelligent Systems is widely available, both in print and in digital libraries, which makes it an ideal place to publish novel scientific and engineering papers that have actual impact on the practice of intelligent system development.

IEEE Intelligent Systems emphasizes current practice and experience and promising new ideas that will likely be used in the near future. Our readers are particularly interested in novel tools, techniques, concepts, and current R&D activities that can lead to use in real-world applications. Example topics include

  • The Semantic Web
  • Adaptive and intelligent robotics
  • Knowledge-based systems
  • Intelligent software agents
  • Natural language processing and text mining
  • Knowledge management
  • Machine learning and data mining
  • Intelligent web applications and web mining
  • Social computing and social media analytics
  • Intelligent interfaces and visualizations
  • Social issues relevant to intelligent systems

Articles describing technically significant work at specific companies, laboratories, and university environments are welcome. The intent is to provide the reader information on advances in the areas listed above, specifics on novel features and applications, discussions of limitations and failures, and an awareness of the trends in this rapidly evolving area. We also welcome tutorials, surveys, case studies, and guided tours through projects, designs, and algorithms.

Feature articles range from four to 8 magazine pages, including all figures, tables, and sidebars. Submissions must be no more than 5,400 words (counting a standard figure or table as 200 words), including all text, illustrations, bios, sidebars, and references. References are limited to the most relevant 15, except in survey articles that discuss a wide range of research. IEEE Intelligent Systems is looking for succinct, practical, readable articles that will appeal to experts and nonexperts alike.

Submissions to IEEE Intelligent Systems must represent original material. Do not submit to more than one publication at a time. Submissions previously published in conference proceedings, digests, preprints, or records are eligible for consideration provided that the author informs the editorial staff at the time of submission and that the submissions have undergone substantial revision.
