Reservoir Computing (RC) is a popular approach for efficiently training Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), based on (i) constraining the recurrent hidden layers to develop stable dynamics, and (ii) restricting the training algorithms to operate solely on an output (readout) layer.

Over the years, the field of RC attracted a lot of research attention, due to several reasons. Indeed, besides the striking efficiency of training algorithms, RC neural networks are distinctively amenable to hardware implementations (including neuromorphic unconventional substrates, like those studied in photonics and material sciences), enable clean mathematical analysis (rooted, e.g., in the field of random matrix theory), and finds natural engineering applications in resource-constrained contexts, such as edge AI systems. Moreover, in the broader picture of Deep Learning development, RC is a breeding ground for testing innovative ideas, e.g. biologically plausible training algorithms beyond gradient back-propagation. Noticeably, although established in the Machine Learning field, RC lends itself naturally to interdisciplinarity, where ideas and inspirations coming from diverse areas such as computational neuroscience, complex systems and non-linear physics can lead to further developments and new applications.

This special session is intended to be a hub for discussion and collaboration within the Neural Networks community, and therefore invites contributions on all aspects of RC, from theory, to new models, to emerging applications.

We invite researchers to submit papers on all aspects of RC research, targeting contributions on theory, models, and applications.


A list of relevant topics for this session includes, without being limited to, the following:

- New Reservoir Computing models and architectures, including Echo State Networks and Liquid State Machines

- Hardware, physical and neuromorphic implementations of Reservoir Computing systems

- Learning algorithms in Reservoir Computing

- Reservoir Computing in Computational Neuroscience

- Reservoir Computing on the edge systems

- Novel learning algorithms rooted in Reservoir Computing concepts

- Novel applications of Reservoir Computing, e.g., to images, video and structured data

- Federated and Continual Learning in Reservoir Computing

- Deep Reservoir Computing neural networks

- Theory of complex and dynamical systems in Reservoir Computing

- Extensions of the Reservoir Computing framework, such as Conceptors


Papers submission for this Special Session follows the same process as for the regular sessions of IJCNN 2023, which uses EDAS as submission system.

The review process for IJCNN 2023 will be double-blind. For prospected authors, it is therefore mandatory to anonymize their manuscripts. Each paper should have 6 to MAXIMUM 8 pages, including figures, tables and references. Please refer to the Submission Guidelines at for full information.

Submit your paper at the following link and choose the track "Special Session: Reservoir Computing: theory, models, and applications", or use the direct link:

Note that anonymizing your paper is mandatory, and papers that explicitly or implicitly reveal the authors' identities may be rejected.
