THE FOURTH International Neural Network Society (INNS) Symposia Series will be held at Institut Teknologi Brunei from November 7-9, focusing on Computational Intelligence in Information Systems (CIIS).
The symposium is organised by Institut Teknologi Brunei through its School of Computing and Informatics, and aimed at providing a platform for researchers to exchange the latest ideas and to present new research advances in general areas related to computational intelligence and their applications in various domains.
The INNS symposia series had also been successfully hosted previously in Auckland, New Zealand in 2008; Lima, Peru in 2011; and Bangkok, Thailand in 2012.
A total of 34 papers will be presented at the symposium, covering themes such as Applied Intelligent Computing, Sports & Health Informatics, Data Analytics, Emerging Digital Media and Ubiquitous Computing.
Two keynote papers will be presented entitled ‘Deep Learning RNNaissance’ by Professor Dr Jürgen Schmidhuber, Swiss AI Lab IDSIA & USI & SUPSI, and ‘Next Generation Intelligent Systems: Observe-Project-Counteract Agent Architecture for Real-time Computational Red Teaming’ by Professor Dr Hussein A Abbass, University of New South Wales Australia.
There will also be presentations from renowned invited speakers including ‘Brain Fingerprints for User Authentication Systems with Absolute Safety’ by Professor Dr Soo-Young Lee, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology; ‘Advances in Workflow Systems’ by Professor Dr Paul Chung, Loughborough University; and ‘Recent Developments in Social & Location Recommendations’ by Professor Dr Irwin King, the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
This year, the symposium received 72 submissions and following a rigorous double blind peer review process, 34 papers have been accepted leading to an acceptance rate of 43%.
The symposium will therefore present high quality papers and will attract researchers, academicians, industry practitioners and students, from diverse nations including Switzerland, Hungary, United Kingdom, Australia, Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan, Indonesia as well as Brunei Darussalam.
Registration to the symposium is still open with a fee of US$150, which covers attendance to all sessions, refreshments, conference dinner and conference CD published by Springer.
