Call for Special Sessions

The IJCNN 2015 Program Committee solicits proposals for special sessions within the technical scopes of the Congress. Special sessions, to be organized by international recognized experts, aim to bring together researchers focused in special, novel and challenging topics. Fast-developing themes such as Deep Learning, Big Data, or applications to challenging fields like chemistry, biology, computer games, robotics, etc. are examples.

Papers submitted for special sessions are to be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the regular sessions. Proposals should include the session title, a brief description of the scope and motivation, related topics, biographic and contact information of the organizers.

Researchers interested in organizing special sessions are invited to submit a formal proposal. Any questions regarding this proposal can be asked to the Special Session Co-chairs:

Mike Gashler. University of Arkansas. USA. email:
Jose Garcia-Rodriguez. University of Alicante. Spain. email:

Deadline: November 10, 2014
