Aims and scope

The International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (ICANN) is the annual flagship conference of the European Neural Network Society (ENNS). In 2012 the University of Lausanne will organize the 22nd ICANN Conference.

ICANN 2012 will have two tracks with PC chairs from both Brain-inspired computing and Machine learning research areas.

Lausanne is a Swiss city located on the shore of the Lake of Geneva, 60 km from the international airport of Geneva. Fast and frequent train connections exist between the airport and Lausanne. The airport of Geneva is a major hub of low cost airlines and is connected by direct flights to most important cities in Europe and several cities in North America, Asia and North Africa.

The venue of the conference is the building Internef of the UNIL Campus Dorigny, in front of the stop "UNIL-Dorigny" of the public metro line 1.

Conference topics

ICANN 2012 will feature two main tracks: Brain inspired computing and Machine learning research, with strong cross-disciplinary interactions and applications. All research fields dealing with Neural Networks will be present at the Conference with emphasis on "Neural Coding", "Decision Making" and "Unsupervised Learning".

Scheduled Sessions are:
    1. Theoretical Neural Computation
    2. Information and Optimization
    3. From Neurons to Neuromorphism
    4. Spiking Dynamics
    5. From Single Neurons to Networks
    6. Complex Firing Patterns
    7. Movement and Motion
    8. From Sensation to Perception
    9. Object and Face Recognition
    10. Reinforcement Learning
