The 3rd International Neural Network Society Winter Conference (INNS-WC2012) will be held in Bangkok, Thailand, on October 3-5, 2012. INNS-WC2012 aims to bring together scientists, practitioners, and students worldwide, to discuss the past, present, and future challenges and trends in the area of natural and machine intelligence. This event has been a bi-annual conference of the International Neural Network Society (INNS) to provide a forum for international researchers to exchange latest ideas and advances on neural networks and related discipline. INNS-WC2012 solicits contributions to the following tracks in natural and machine intelligence and related areas:

  • INNS-WC general track: Trends in Natural and Machine Intelligence
  • INNS Symposium on Nature Inspired Creativity (SoNIC2012)
  • INNS Symposium on Vision and Image Processing (SoVIP2012)
  • INNS Symposium on Data Analytics and Competitions (SoDAC2012)

Prospective authors are invited to submit original, high quality manuscripts of up to twelve (12) pages electronically. Short papers of 4-6 pages will also be considered. The submission must conform to the Elsevier Procedia Computer Science format. All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of INNS-WC2012 as anElsevier Procedia Computer Science open access volume (indexed by EI, Scopus and Conference Proceedings Citation Index - formerly ISI Proceedings). Extended version of selected papers may be invited for publication in special issues of international journals after the conference. All submissions will be checked by VeriGuide for originality.
