Call for Papers and Special Sessions
Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers to ICONIP2018. In addition, proposals for special sessions within the technical scopes of the symposium are solicited. Special sessions, to be organized by internationally 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.
Researchers interested in organizing special sessions are invited to submit formal proposals to ICONIP2018. A special session proposal should include the session title, a brief description of the scope and motivation, names, contact information and brief biographical information on the organizers.
Topics of contributing papers include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
Neuroscience, connectionist theory, cognitive science, mathematical modeling of neural systems, neurodynamic analysis, neurodynamic optimization, adaptive dynamic programming, embedded neural systems, probabilistic and information-theoretic methods, principal and independent component analysis, hybrid intelligent systems, supervised learning, unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, deep learning, brain imaging, neuroinformatics, bioinformatics, support vector machines, kernel methods, autonomous mental development, data mining, pattern recognition, time series analysis, image and signal processing, robotics, intelligent control, telecommunications, transportation systems, intrusion detection and fault diagnosis, data mining, information security, financial engineering, business intelligence, Bayesian networks, sensory perception, motor control, social cognition, neuroeconomics, computational psychiatry, brain-machine interface, big data analysis, biomedical engineering, neuromorphic hardware implementation.
Authors are invited to submit full-length papers (12 pages maximum) by the submission deadline through the online submission system. Potential organizers are also invited to enlist five or more papers with cohesive topics to form special sessions. The submission of a paper implies that the paper is original and has not been submitted under review or is not copyright-protected elsewhere and will be presented by an author if accepted.
All submitted papers will be refereed by experts in the field based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality, and clarity. The authors of accepted papers will have an opportunity to revise their papers and take consideration of the referees' comments and suggestions. The Proceedings will be published in the Springer’s series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of an SCI
