Workshops & Conferences

We are planning special sessions at each of these conferences. In order to facilitate interdisciplinary research & submissions from different academic disciplines, the results will be presented at various conferences in 2008 at various locations in Europe, USA and Asia and in different disciplines of neural networks, engineering, computer science, management, statistics and operational research. We hope this will compensate for a publication & submission bias through disciplines, locations and submission timing. Authors may choose to attend one or more conference workshops, where the approaches are presented.

Participants are free to attend any of these conferences, which offer different benefits & require different prerequisites for attendance. All reasonable submissions will qualify for attendance at a session. We hope the different conferences will allow a choice for presenter between continents (USA, Europe & Asia), conference audiences (forecasters, data mining, neural networks and management, engineering, computer science etc.), and presentation formats (presentation & abstract without formal paper, formal IEEE style paper etc.).

NN5 special session at the
ISF'08, The International Symposium on Forecasting, Nice, France

 NN5 special session at the  WCCI'08, The IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (incl.  IJCNN'08, CEC'08, FUZZ-IEEE)

NN5 special session at the
DMIN'08, The International Conference on Data Mining, Las Vegas, USA

We are open to host sessions at additional conferences. Please contact us if you are interested in suggesting a particular conference & location.
