Annual Conference of the Japanese Neural Network Society (JNNS2011)
December 15-17, 2011
Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology
Web Site: http://www.jnns.org/conference/2011

The 21st Annual Conference of the Japanese Neural Network Society
(JNNS2011) will be held from December 15th to 17th at Okinawa Institute
of Science and Technology (OIST), an international graduate university
newly built on a semitropical island 1,600km southwest of Tokyo.
JNNS2011 aims to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, educators,
and students to discuss the latest progress and future challenges in the
field of neural information processing. All presentations will be
English to promote international participation. Travel support will be
provided for selected student presenters.

Keynote Speakers:
Dr. Richard Sutton (University of Alberta)
Dr. Peter Dayan (University College London)

Call for Papers:
JNNS2011 invites the submission of papers on substantial and original
research in all aspects of neural information processing. We welcome
contributions from diverse fields including neurobiology, psychology,
mathematical modeling and analysis, machine learning, and information
The presenting author should be a member of the Japanese Neural Network
Society (JNNS) or supporting societies except presenters from overseas.
An author can present only one paper but can be a non-presenting
co-author of other papers.
Papers should be written in English and is limited to two pages in A4
