WIRN 2020

Due to the latest developments in Covid-19 outbreak, WIRN2020 conference will be postponed to 2021. A new Call for Paper for WIRN 2021 will be announced in the next weeks. Temptative dates will be June 9-11 2021.


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 30th Edition of the Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN 2020) will be held at the IIASS in  Vietri sul Mare, near Salerno, Italy.


Prospective authors are invited to contribute high quality papers in the topic areas listed below.  Contributions should be high quality, original and not published elsewhere. Papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee, and may be accepted for oral or poster presentation. All accepted contributions will be published in a special volume printed by Springer  and indexed by SCOPUS. Authors will be limited to one paper per registration. Please visit the Springer web site for the paper format: (http://www.springer.com/series/8767). Manuscripts should not exceed the limit of 8-10 pages. The submission procedure can be made through Easy Chair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wirn2020
