All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers from International Technical Program Committee.

This Conference is ranked "A" by the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA), see Ranked Conference List

Paper submissions and publications: General stream conference papers of maximum 8 pages each should be submitted on-line following the Springer LNCS format. Papers for the special sessions and for workshops are submitted in the same way as ordinary papers in the targeted session. Papers will be published by the LNCS Springer series, and by journal publication. Selected and extended papers will be published in special issues of journals after the conference.


The 17th International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP2010) aims at presentation of professional research results and enthusiastic discussions among researchers, scientists, and industry professionals who are working in neural network and related fields.
