Società Italiana Reti Neuroniche

WIRN 2019

The Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN) is the annual conference of the Italian Society of Neural Networks (SIREN). The conference is organized, since 1989, in co-operation with the International Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies (IIASS) in Vietri S/M (Italy), and is a traditional event devoted to the discussion of novelties and innovations related to field of Artificial Neural Networks. In recent years, it also became a multidisciplinary forum on psychological and cognitive theories for modelling human behaviours. The 29th Edition of the Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN 2019) will be held at the IIASS in Vietri sul Mare, near Salerno, Italy.
