WIRN 2023

The Italian Workshop on Neural Networks

7 – 9 June 2023 – Vietri sul Mare (SA), Italy

WIRN 2023

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 31st Edition of WIRN 2023 will be held at the IIASS in Vietri sul Mare, near Salerno, Italy.

CALL FOR PAPERS: Prospective authors are invited to contribute with original, not published elsewhere, high quality papers in the topic areas listed below. Papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee and can be accepted for oral or poster presentation. Accepted contributions will be published in a Springer printed volume indexed by SCOPUS. Authors are limited to one paper per registration, not exceeding 8-10 pages’ limit. Springer Paper format is on: http://www.springer.com/series/8767. Submission is through Easy Chair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wirn2023.

Selected WIRN 23 conference papers will be invited to be expanded and presented for Journal Special Issues (tba).

SPECIAL SESSIONS: Special sessions’ proposers must send their proposals, no later than April 20, 2023, to the steering committee: Anna Esposito, Marcos Faundez-Zanuy, Francesco Carlo Morabito, Eros Pasero (iiass.annaesp@tin.it, faundez@tecnocampus.cat, morabito@unirc.it, eros.pasero@polito.it).

BEST PhD THESIS “Caianiello’s AWARD”: The Italian IEEE SMC chapter and SIREN are sponsoring the best PhD Thesis published during 2020-2022 with 500 € and a WIRN 2023 free registration (including social dinner). PhD graduated must submit their thesis to the Award Committee Anna Esposito, Laura Giarré , Francesco Carlo Morabito, Eros Pasero (iiass.annaesp@tin.it, laura.giarre@unimore.itmorabito@unirc.it, eros.pasero@polito.it). See https://www.siren-neural-net.it/caianiello-award-2023/ 

The deadline for the submissions is extended to May 8, 2023.
