Welcome to ICANN 2021

The 30th International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks.
A conference of the European Neural Network Society.


The International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (ICANN) is the annual flagship conference of the European Neural Network Society (ENNS).
In 2021 the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics (FMPI), Comenius University in Bratislava, together with the Slovak Society for Cognitive Science, organize the 30th ICANN Conference. The ideal of ICANN is to bring together researchers from two worlds: information sciences and neurosciences. The scope is wide, ranging from machine learning algorithms to models of real nervous systems. The aim is to facilitate discussions and interactions in the effort towards developing more intelligent computational systems and increasing our understanding of neural and cognitive processes in the brain.

ICANN 2021 is co-located within Bratislava Knowledge September 2021, with related related conferences and workshops.

Conference proceedings are published by Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer Science.


ICANN 2021 goes online

March 26, 2021
Due to the uncertainty regarding the re-opening of Europe during 2021, ICANN is going fully online this year. We will still have keynote talks, contributed talks and poster sessions, and nothing changes regarding the conference proceedings in Springer LNCS. Please see the extended deadlines on the Important Dates page.

Conference topics

ICANN 2021 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. More details about Conference topics.
