WIRN 2016

26th Italian Workshop on Neural Networks

May 18-20, Vietri sul Mare, Salerno, Italy

PAPER SUBMISSION: Important Dates (Preliminary)


The Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN) is the annual conference of the Italian Society of Neural Networks (SIREN). The conference is organized, since 1989, in co-operation with the International Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies (IIASS) of Vietri S/M (Italy), and is a traditional event devoted to the discussion of novelties and innovations related to field of Artificial Neural Networks. In recent years, it also became a multidisciplinary forum on psychological and cognitive theories for modelling human behaviours. The 26th Edition of the Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN 2016) will be held at the IIASS of Vietri sul Mare, near Salerno, Italy


Prospective authors are invited to contribute high quality papers in the topic areas listed below and proposals for special sessions. Special sessions aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. Each special session should include at least 3 contributing papers. A proposal for a special session should include a summary statement (1 page long) describing the motivation and relevance of the proposed special session, together with the article titles and author names of the papers that will be included in the track. Contributions should be high quality, original and not published elsewhere or submitted for publication during the review period.. Papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee, and may be accepted for oral or poster presentation. All accepted contributions will be published in a special volume printed by Springer and indexed by SCOPUS. Please visit the web site for further details of the required paper format Authors will be limited to one paper per registration. Manuscripts should not exceed the limits of 8 pages.
