Call for Papers, Special Sessions and Workshop Proposals
Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers in the topic areas listed below and proposals for special sessions and workshops.
Special sessions, to be organized by internationally recognized experts, aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. Each special session should include at least 6 contributing papers. A special session proposal should include the session title, a brief description of the scope and motivation, names, contact information and brief biographical information on the organizers. Papers submitted for special sessions are to be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the regular papers.
Workshops will consist of a panel of invited experts. No individual papers will be submitted and no papers will appear in the proceed-ings. A proposal for workshop should include a summary statement (2-3 pages) describing the topic and motivation of the workshop and a list of the workshop panelists. All of the post-conference workshops will be held at Hangzhou, November 18, 2011.
Authors are invited to submit full-length papers (10 pages maximum) by the submission deadline through the online submission system. The submission of a paper implies that the paper is original and has not been submitted under review or copyright-protected elsewhere and will be presented by an author if accepted. All submitted papers will be refereed by experts in the field based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality, and clarity. The authors of accepted papers will have an opportunity to revise their papers and take consideration of the referees' comments and suggestions. The proceedings of ICONIP 2011 will be published by Springer in its series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Extended versions of selected good papers will be included, subject to another peer review acceptance/rejection process, in special Issues of Neurocomputing and Neural Computing and Applications.
