http://www.ijcnn.org/

##################################################

 

IJCNN is the premier international conference in the area of neural network
theory, analysis, and applications. Co-sponsored by the International Neural
Network Society (INNS) and the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society
(IEEE-CIS), over the last three decades this conference and its predecessors
has hosted [past, present, and future] leaders of neural network research.
IJCNN 2017 will feature invited plenary talks by world-renowned speakers in
the areas of neural network theory and applications, computational
neuroscience, robotics, and distributed intelligence. In addition to regular
technical sessions with oral and poster presentations, the conference
program will include special sessions, competitions, tutorials and workshops
on topics of current interest.

 

The 2017 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN 2017) will
be held at the William A. Egan Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage,
Alaska, USA, May 14-19, 2017. "... Only in Anchorage can you meet a moose,
walk on a glacier and explore a vast, natural park all in a single day.
Between mountains and an inlet, surrounded by national parks and filled with
Alaska wildlife, Anchorage combines the best of Alaska in a city that has
the comforts of home and the hospitality of the Last Frontier. ..."

##########################Call for Sponsors##########################

You are invited to support the 2017 International Joint Conference on Neural
Networks (IJCNN 2017), organized by the International Neural Network Society
(INNS) and the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (IEEE-CIS).

 

This is an ideal way to demonstrate your organization's commitment to the
field of artificial intelligence – including neural networks, biomorphic
systems, computational neuroscience, neuroengineering, and many other areas
at the frontier of technological innovation – and to publicize this support
to many leaders and students in the field.

 

Corporate support is typically used to permit a greater number of students
to attend IJCNN at reduced fees without increasing the general registration,
and to allow student volunteers to receive complimentary registration.
Exhibits by sponsors also help inform researchers – especially students and
postdocs – about relevant applications and opportunities. Corporate support
can be targeted to a particular event or activity at the Conference.

 

IJCNN 2017 has four sponsorship levels: Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

 

Your support is very important to the conference, and the conference
committee ensures that these contributions are well recognized. We list the
benefits and costs below.

the amount of the contribution and the order received.

 

Your company or institution (with logo and URL) will be listed in all
conference announcements, on the advance program, and on the conference web
pages, at www.ijcnn.org

We will specially acknowledge your company's contribution and offer thanks
