WIRN 2015 - First Call for Papers

25th Italian Workshop on Neural Networks May 21 - 22, 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) located in 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 25th Edition of the Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN 2015) will be held at the IIASS in Vietri sul Mare, near Salerno, Italy.

WIRN 2015 will follow the conference Non-Linear Speech Processing (NOLISP) 2015 that is held from the 18th to the 20th of May 2015


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 details on 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 the Springer volume series Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies (http://www.springer.com/series/8767) and indexed by SCOPUS. Authors will be limited to one paper per registration. Manuscripts should not exceed the limits of 8 pages. The description of the submission procedure will appears soon on the WIRN 2015 Website www.wirn2015.polito.it
