19th International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (ICANN 2009)
14-17 September 2009, Limassol, Cyprus
The 19th International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (ICANN 2009) will be
held in Cyprus, at the seaside city of Limassol.
Located in the easternmost corner of the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus is an island of
spectacular beauty with alluring beaches and fragrant mountain peaks, vineyards
studded with olive trees and ancient ruins that stir the imagination. A
sophisticated country, whose nine-thousand-year cultural legacy infuses East and
West. Cyprus is an historic island, the third largest in the Mediterranean, where
modern travelers retrace the footsteps of figures as diverse as St. Paul, Alexander
the Great and Leonardo da Vinci. And a romantic island, once Anthony’s gift to
Cleopatra and where, according to mythology, the goddess Aphrodite first emerged
from the sea. Today, Cyprus is a modern country that joins European culture with
ancient enchantment. Currently, Cyprus is a full member of the European Union, with
Euro as its monetary currency. Cyprus can be reached by direct flights from several
cities including London, Amsterdam, Athens, Paris, Frankfurt, Zurich, Vienna, Rome,
Budapest, Prague, etc. The conference venue is the GrandResort, a luxurious five
star hotel located at a superb beach side location in the Amathus area of
Limassol, which is the second largest city of Cyprus.
ICANN 2009 will provide a high-level international forum for the academic and
industrial community to address new challenges, share solutions and discuss future
research directions in neural networks, learning systems, computational
intelligence, and real-world applications.
CALL FOR PAPERS, SPECIAL SESSIONS AND WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
Prospective authors are invited to contribute high quality papers in the topic areas
listed below and proposals for special sessions and workshops.
Special sessions aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. Each
special session should include 6 contributing papers. A proposal for a special
session should include a summary statement (1-2 pages 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 special session.
Workshops will consist of a panel of invited experts, which after presenting the
subject will moderate an open debate. No individual papers will be submitted and no
papers will appear in the proceedings. A proposal for a Workshop should include a
summary statement (2-3 pages) describing the topic and motivation of the workshop
and a list of the workshop panelists.
The scope of the conference will cover, but is not limited to, the following areas:
Computational neuroscience; Connectionist cognitive science; Data analysis and
pattern recognition; Graphical networks models, Bayesian networks; Hardware
implementations and embedded systems; Intelligent Multimedia and the Semantic Web;
Neural and hybrid architectures and learning algorithms; Neural control, planning
and robotics applications; Intelligent control and adaptive systems; Neural dynamics
and complex systems; Neuroinformatics and bioinformatics; Self-organization;
Sequential and structured information processing; Signal and time series processing,
blind source separation; Vision and image processing; Brain-computer interface and
cognitive architectures; Computational intelligence applications to biomedical
systems, critical infrastructure systems, manufacturing, intelligent environmental
Authors are invited to submit full-length papers (maximum 10 pages, single-spaced,
single-column) by the submission deadline through the online submission system.
Potential organizers are also invited to enlist 6 papers with cohesive topics to
form special sessions. All submitted papers (regular and special session papers)
will be reviewed by experts in the field. The authors of accepted papers will have
the opportunity to revise their paper, taking into consideration the referees’
comments and suggestions, before submitting the final draft for inclusion in the
conference proceedings, which will be published by Springer (LNCS series). The
submission of a paper implies that the paper is original and has not been submitted
elsewhere, that at least one author will register and pay the registration fee, and
that it will be presented by an author if accepted.
Details for the submission and all information concerning the Conference can be
found at the conference web site: http://www.kios.org.cy/ICANN09.
