WIRN 2024

The Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN) is the annual conference of the Italian Society of Neural Networks (SIREN). The historical venue of the conference, since 1989 is in Vietri Sul Mare, Salerno, Italy. WIRN is a 32-year traditional event devoted to the discussion of novelties and innovations related to field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Neural Networks (NN). In recent years, it also became a multidisciplinary forum on psychological and cognitive theories for modelling human behaviours.

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: Submission is through Easy Chair (

Selected WIRN 24 papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a Sensors journal special issue “Wearable Sensors and Artificial Intelligence for Measuring Human Vital Signs: 2nd Edition” (

SPECIAL SESSIONS: Held inside WIRN are dedicated Special sessions devoted to enhancing the theoretical and practical aspects of AI. Proposers must send their proposals, to the WIRN 2024 organizing committee: Anna Esposito, Gennaro Cordasco, Marcos Faundez-Zanuy, Francesco Carlo Morabito, Eros Pasero.

BEST PhD THESIS “Caianiello’s AWARD”: SIREN and the Italian IEEE chapter on System Men and Cybernetics (SMC) are sponsoring the best PhD Thesis published during 2022-2024 with 500 Euro (1 position) and a WIRN 2024 free registration (including social dinner, 1st and 2nd position). PhD graduated must submit the thesis to the Award Committee Anna Esposito, Laura Giarré, Francesco Carlo Morabito, Eros Pasero (,, See .
