31st International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks

Bristol, United Kingdom – 6 – 9 September 2022

The International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (ICANN) is the annual flagship conference of the European Neural Network Society (ENNS). In 2022 the Department of Computer Science and Creative Technologies of the University of the West of England, in Bristol, United Kingdom will organise ICANN 2022. This will be held at Frenchay Campus from 6 to 9 September 2022.

The conference is currently planned as a hybrid event with some presence and some online participation if possible. We will continuously monitor the situation in the next few months according to the overall health developments.

ICANN 2022 is a conference featuring tracks in Brain-inspired Computing and
Machine Learning in Artificial Neural Networks, with strong cross-disciplinary
interactions and applications. All research fields dealing with Neural Networks
will be present at the conference. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes:

Machine Learning: Deep Learning, Neural Network Theory, Neural Network Models,
Graphical Models, Bayesian Networks, Kernel Methods, Generative Models,
Information-theoretic Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Relational Learning,
Dynamical Models, Recurrent Networks, Ethics of AI.

Brain-inspired Computing: Cognitive models, Computational Neuroscience,
Self-organisation, Bioinspired Learning, Neural Control and Planning, Hybrid
Neural-Symbolic Architectures, Neural Dynamics, Cognitive Neuroscience, Brain
Informatics, Perception and Action.

Neural Applications for: Bioinformatics, Biomedicine, Intelligent Robotics,
Neurorobotics, Language Processing, Speech and Image Processing, Sensor Fusion,
Pattern Recognition, Data Mining, Neural Agents, Brain-Computer Interaction,
Neural Hardware, Evolutionary Neural Networks.

All scientific communications presented at ICANN 2022 will be reviewed and
scientifically evaluated by a panel of experts. The conference will feature two
categories of communications:
– oral communications (15’+5′)
– poster communications.

Call for Special Sessions and Workshops
ICANN 2022 organizers cordially invite internationally recognised experts to
organise Special sessions and Workshops within the general scope of the
conference. Proposals should be sent to ICANN2022 AT

Authors willing to present original contributions in either the oral or poster
category may submit:
– A full paper of maximum 12 pages (including references) to be published in
Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series with individual DOI.
– An extended abstract of maximum 4 pages to be published in Springer-Verlag
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, without indexing.

The number of oral slots is limited. In case the number of requested oral
presentations is larger than the available slots, the ICANN scientific committee
will select which papers will be reassigned to a poster session. This selection
will be based on the coherence of the programme and is totally independent of
the category of submission. Submission information.

See Important Dates.

ENNS will sponsor a maximum of four best paper awards. All awards will be
presented during the final ceremony.

The European Neural Network Society sponsors a number of Student Travel Grants
covering part of the costs for attending ICANN. Details will be provided on the
conference website.
