CFP: 2012 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks

2012 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks

The annual International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN) will be held jointly with the IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE) and the IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC) as part of the 2012 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (IEEE WCCI), June 10-15, 2012, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre, Brisbane, Australia. Cross-fertilization of the three technical disciplines and newly emerging technologies is strongly encouraged.

Call for Contributed Papers

IJCNN 2012 will feature a world-class conference that aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of neural networks and computational intelligence from all around the globe. Technical exchanges within the research community will encompass keynote lectures, special sessions, tutorials and workshops, panel discussions as well as poster presentations. In addition, participants will be treated to a series of social functions, receptions, and networking to establish new connections and foster everlasting friendship among fellow counterparts. The annual IJCNN covers all topics in neural networks including:

Neural network theory & models
Computational neuroscience
Learning and adaptation
Pattern recognition
Cognitive models
Machine vision and image processing
Brain-machine interfaces
Collective intelligence
Neural control
Hybrid systems
Evolutionary neural systems
Self-aware systems
Neurodynamics and complex systems
Data mining
Sensor networks and intelligent systems
Neural hardware
Neural network applications
Computational biology
Emerging areas

Paper Submission and Inquiries
Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers to IJCNN 2012. All papers are to be submitted electronically through the IEEE WCCI 2012 website

For IJCNN inquiries please contact Conference Chair: Cesare Alippi at

For Program inquiries please contact Program Chair: Kate Smith-Miles at

General Enquires for IEEE WCCI 2012 should be sent to the General Chair: Hussein Abbass at

Call for Special Sessions

The IJCNN 2012 Program Committee solicits proposals for special sessions within the technical scopes of the Congress. Special sessions, to be organized by international recognized experts, aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. Papers submitted for special sessions are to be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the contributed papers. Proposals should include the session title, a brief description of the scope and motivation, biographic and contact information of the organizers. Researchers interested in organizing special sessions are invited to submit formal proposal to the Special Session Chair: Brijesh Verma at

Call for Tutorials and Workshops

IJCNN 2012 will also feature pre-Congress tutorials and workshops, covering fundamental and advanced neural network topics. A tutorial or workshop proposal should include title, outline, expected enrollment, and presenter/organizer biography. We invite you to submit proposals to the Tutorial and Workshop Chair: Toshio Fukuda at

Call for Competitions

IJCNN 2012 will host competitions to stimulate research in neural networks, promote fair evaluations, and attract students. The proposals for new competitions should include descriptions of the problems addressed, motivations, expected impact on neural networks and machine learning, and established baselines, schedules, anticipated number of participants, and a biography of the main team members. We invite you to submit proposals to the Competitions Chair: Sung-Bae Cho at
