WIRN 2018

The Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN) is the annual conference of the Italian Society of Neural
Networks (SIREN). The conference is organized, since 1989, in co-operation with the International Institute
for Advanced Scientific Studies (IIASS) of Vietri S/M (Italy), and is a traditional event devoted to the
discussion of novelties and innovations related to field of Artificial Neural Networks. In recent years, it also
became a multidisciplinary forum on psychological and cognitive theories for modelling human behaviours.
The 28th Edition of the Italian Workshop on Neural Networks (WIRN 2018) will be held at the IIASS of
Vietri sul Mare, near Salerno, Italy.



Prospective authors are invited to contribute high quality papers in the topic areas
listed below. Contributions should be high quality, original and not published elsewhere. Papers will be
reviewed by the Program Committee, and may be accepted for oral or poster presentation. All accepted
contributions will be published in a special volume printed by Springer and indexed by SCOPUS. Authors
will be limited to one paper per registration. Please visit the Springer web site for the paper format:
