28th International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks

Munich, Germany
17 - 19 September 2019
Special event: BIGCHEM (http://bigchem.eu) final meeting

The International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (ICANN) is 
the annual flagship conference of the European Neural Network Society 
In 2019 the Helmholtz Zentrum Muenchen - German Research Center for 
Environmental Health GmbH (HMGU) and the Technical University of Munich 
(TUM) together with the "Big Data in Chemistry" Marie Skłodowska-Curie 
Innovative Training Network European Industrial Doctorate project 
(BIGCHEM) organize the 28th ICANN Conference from the 17th to the 19th 
of September 2019 in Munich, Germany.

ICANN 2019 is a dual-track conference featuring tracks in Brain Inspired 
Computing and Machine Learning and Artificial Neural Networks, with 
strong cross-disciplinary interactions and applications. All research 
fields dealing with Neural Networks will be present at the conference. A 
non-exhaustive list of topics includes:

Machine Learning:  Deep Learning, Neural Network Theory, Neural Network 
Models, Graphical Models, Bayesian Networks, Kernel Methods, Generative 
Models, Information Theoretic Learning, Reinforcement Learning, 
Relational Learning, Dynamical Models Recurrent Networks.

Brain Inspired Computing: Cognitive models, Computational Neuroscience, 
Self-organisation, Reinforcement Learning, Neural Control and Planning, 
Hybrid Neural-Symbolic Architectures, Neural Dynamics.

Neural Applications for: Bioinformatics, Biomedicine, Intelligent 
Robotics, Neurorobotics, Language Processing, Image Processing, Sensor 
Fusion, Pattern Recognition, Data Mining, Neural Agents, Brain-Computer 
Interaction, Neural Hardware, Evolutionary Neural Networks.

Special session (BIGCHEM): Big Data analysis in chemistry, 
chemoinformatics, use of deep learning to predict molecular properties, 
drug-discovery, modelling and prediction of chemical reaction data, 
synthetic route prediction, structure generation, molecular dynamics 
simulations and quantum chemistry.

All scientific communications presented at ICANN 2019 will be reviewed 
and scientifically evaluated by a panel of experts. The conference will 
feature three categories of communications:
- oral communications (15'+5')
- poster communications
- demonstrations

Call for Special Sessions:
ICANN2019 organizers cordially invite internationally recognised experts 
to organise Special Sessions (including workshops and competitions) 
within the general scope of the conference. Special Session Proposal 
request should be sent to icann2019 at bigchem.eu

Call for Papers:
Authors willing to present original contributions in either oral or 
poster category may submit:
- a proceedings paper manuscript of about 10 - 12 pages to be published 
in Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series with 
individual DOI
- extended abstracts of a maximum length of 2 pages to be published in 
Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
The number of oral slots is limited.  In case the number of requested 
oral presentations is larger than the available slots the ICANN 
scientific committee will select which papers will be reassigned to a 
poster session.  This selections will be based on the coherence of the 
programme and is totally independent of the category of submission.
Submission of communications will be online. More details will be made 
available soon on the conference website: http://icann2019.org

Deadline of special sessions submission: 1 February 2019
Opening of contribution submissions: 1 February 2019
Submission of demonstration proposals: 1 March 2019
Deadline of proceedings paper submission: 15 March 2019
Deadline of extended abstracts  submission: 1 April 2019
Notification of acceptance: 1 May 2019
Camera-ready paper and registration opening: 1 June 2019
Deadline early registration at discount rate: 15 June 2019
Conference dates: 17-19 September 2019

ENNS will sponsor a maximum of four best paper awards, two in the Brain 
Inspired Computing track (one poster and one oral communication) and, 
analogously,  two in the Machine Learning Research track. All awardees 
will be presented during the final ceremony.

The European Neural Network Society sponsors a number of Student Travel 
Grants covering part of the costs for attending ICANN. Details on the 
conference website.
