WIRN 2013 - First Call for Papers

23rd Italian Workshop on Neural Networks -- May 23-25, Vietri sul Mare, Salerno, Italy

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 23rd Edition of the Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN 2013) will be held at the IIASS of Vietri sul Mare, 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. Please visit the web site for further details of the required paper format. Papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee, and may be accepted for oral or poster presentation. All contributions will be published in a proceeding volume by Springer (instructions to authors: http://www.springer.com/series/8767). Authors will be limited to one paper per registration.The submission of the manuscripts should be done through the following website (page limit: 8 pages): https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wirn2013


Suggested topics for the conference include, but are not limited to, the following research and application areas:

During the Workshop the "Premio E.R. Caianiello" will be assigned to the best Italian Ph.D. thesis in the area of Neural Networks and related fields. The prize consists in a diploma and a 500,00 check. Interested applicants must send their CV and thesis in pdf format to "Premio Caianiello-WIRN 2013" c/o IIASS before April 20, 2013 to the addresses (wirn2013@associazionesiren.org, iiass.segreteria@tin.it). To participate, the Ph.D. degree has to be obtained after January 1, 2011 and before March 31, 2013. A candidate can submit his/her Ph. D. thesis to the prize at most twice. Only SIREN members are admitted (subscription forms can be downloaded from the SIREN web site). For more information, contact the conference Secretary at I.I.A.S.S. "E. R. Caianiello", Via G. Pellegrino, 19, 84019 Vietri Sul Mare (SA), ITALY.
