ESANN 2009 : The 17th European Symposium on Artificial Neural Networks
Conference Series : The European Symposium on Artificial Neural Networks
Call For Papers
Scope and topics
Since its first happening in 1993, the European Symposium on Artificial Neural Networks has become the reference for researchers on fundamentals and theoretical aspects of artificial neural networks, computational intelligence, machine learning and related topics. Each year, around 100 specialists attend ESANN, in order to present their latest results and comprehensive surveys, and to discuss the future developments in this field.
The ESANN'2009 conference will follow this tradition, while adapting its scope to the new developments in the field. The ESANN conferences cover artificial neural networks, machine learning, statistical information processing and computational intelligence. Mathematical foundations, algorithms and tools, and applications are covered.
Papers will be presented orally (single track) and in poster sessions; all posters will be complemented by a short oral presentation during a plenary session. It is important to mention that the topics of a paper decide if it better fits into an oral or a poster session, not its quality. The selection of posters will be identical to oral presentations, and both will be printed in the same way in the proceedings. Nevertheless, authors must indicate their preference for oral or poster presentation when submitting their paper.
The following is a non-exhaustive list of machine learning, computational intelligence and artificial neural networks topics covered during the ESANN conferences:
THEORY and MODELS INFORMATION PROCESSING and APPLICATIONS
Statistical and mathematical aspects of learning Data mining
Feedforward models Signal processing and modeling
Kernel machines Approximation and identification
Graphical models, EM and Bayesian learning Classification and clustering
Vector quantization and self-organizing maps Feature extraction and dimension reduction
Recurrent networks and dynamical systems Time series forecasting
Blind signal processing Multimodal interfaces and multichannel processing
Ensemble learning Vision and sensory systems
Nonlinear projection and data visualization Identification of non-linear dynamical systems
Fuzzy neural networks Biometry
Evolutionary computation Bioinformatics
Bio-inspired systems Brain-computer interfaces
Special sessions will be organized by renowned scientists in their respective fields. Papers submitted to these sessions are reviewed according to the same rules as any other submission. Authors who submit papers to one of these sessions are invited to mention it on the author submission form; nevertheless, submissions to the special sessions must follow the same format, instructions and deadlines as any other submission, and must be sent to the same address.
See the special sessions page for details.
Prospective authors are invited to submit their contributions before 21 November 2008.
Extended deadline 28 November 2008
