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. The conference is organized jointly by the
International Neural Network Society and the IEEE Computational Intelligence
Society, and is the premiere international meeting for researchers and other
professionals in neural networks and related areas.  It 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

#################### Paper Submission is now Open ####################

http://www.ijcnn.org/call-for-papers

 

* Regular paper can have up to 8 pages in double-column IEEE Conference
format

* All papers are to be prepared using IEEE-compliant Latex or Word templates
on paper of U.S. letter size.

* All submitted papers will be checked for plagiarism through the IEEE
CrossCheck system. 

* Papers with significant overlap with the authors own papers or other
papers will be rejected without review.

 

 

##########################Call for Workshops##########################

Post-conference workshops offer a unique opportunity for in-depth
discussions of specific topics in neural networks and computational
intelligence. The workshops should be moderated by scientists or
professionals who has significant expertise and /or whose recent work has
had a significant impact within their field. IJCNN 2017 will emphasize
emerging and growing areas of computational intelligence.

 

Each workshop has a duration of 3 or 6 hours. The format of each workshop
will be up to the moderator, and can include interactive presentations as
well as panel discussions among participants. These interactions should
highlight exciting new developments and current research trends to
facilitate a discussion of ideas that will drive the field forward in the
coming years. Workshop organizers can prepare various materials including
handouts or electronic resources that can be made available for distribution
before or after the meeting.

 

Researchers interested in organizing workshops are invited to submit a
formal proposal including the following information as a single file (pdf,
doc, etc.) to the workshop chair:

 

* Title

* Organizers and their short bio

* Brief description of the scope and impact of the workshop

* Timeliness of the topic

* Confirmed and/or potential speakers

* Half day (3 hours) or full day (6 hours) 

* Link to organizer's web page and/or workshop web site (optional)
