Call for Papers

The 31st International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP 2024) is set to be held in Auckland, New Zealand, from December 2nd to December 6th, 2024. ICONIP serves as the annual flagship conference of the Asia Pacific Neural Network Society (APNNS).

Over the past three decades, ICONIP has emerged as a premier venue for showcasing cutting-edge research, technology, and innovations in computational modelling, data analytics, and artificial intelligence.

ICONIP 2024 aims to provide a high-level international forum for scientists, researchers, educators, industrial professionals, and students worldwide to present the state of research and development, address new challenges, and discuss trends in neural information processing theory and applications. These include computational neuroscience, machine learning, bioinformatics, health informatics, computer vision, automation and control, finance, manufacturing, transportation, cybersecurity, and more.

In addition to technical sessions with oral and poster presentations, the conference program will include special sessions, workshops, and tutorials on topics of current interest. It also features plenary/keynote and panel discussion sessions led by the world’s leading researchers and professionals, as well as awards to outstanding papers presented at the conference.

ICONIP employs a competitive paper reviewing process to ensure that only high-quality papers are accepted for publication. Proceedings will be published in the Springer series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS). Accepted papers will typically range from 12 to 15 pages in length.

Instructions on how to submit your paper will be available here soon.
