Registration

The organisation of ICANN 2020 is a non-profit action. We have made an effort to keep the Conference fee as low as possible, in particular for students.

Registration will open at a later stage.

The European Neural Networks Society (ENNS) is sponsoring a number of student grants to finance the participation to ICANN 2020 of the best students who submitted a full paper to ICANN 2020.
