Scope and topics

Since its first happening in 1993, the European Symposium on Artificial Neural Networks has become the reference for researchers on fundamentals and theoretical aspects of artificial neural networks, computational intelligence, machine learning and related topics. Each year, around 100 specialists attend ESANN, in order to present their latest results and comprehensive surveys, and to discuss the future developments in this field.

The ESANN 2018 conference will follow this tradition, while adapting its scope to the recent developments in the field. The ESANN conferences cover artificial neural networks, machine learning, statistical information processing and computational intelligence. Mathematical foundations, algorithms and tools, and applications are covered.

Papers will be presented orally (single track) and in poster sessions; all posters will be complemented by a short oral presentation during a plenary session. The selection of papers will differentiate between oral and posters presentations according to the topics, and not to the level of quality.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of machine learning, computational intelligence and artificial neural networks topics covered during the ESANN conferences:

Statistical and mathematical aspects of learning   Data mining
Feedforward models   Signal processing and modeling
Kernel machines   Approximation and identification
Graphical models, EM and Bayesian learning   Classification and clustering
Vector quantization and self-organizing maps   Feature extraction and dimension reduction
Recurrent networks and dynamical systems   Time series forecasting
Blind signal processing   Multimodal interfaces and multichannel processing
Ensemble learning   Vision and sensory systems
Nonlinear projection and data visualization   Identification of non-linear dynamical systems
Fuzzy neural networks   Biometry
Evolutionary computation   Bioinformatics
Bio-inspired systems   Brain-computer interfaces

Special sessions

Special sessions will be organized by renowned scientists in their respective fields. Papers submitted to these sessions are reviewed according to the same rules as the submissions to the regular sessions. Authors who submit papers to one of these sessions are invited to mention it on the author submission form. Submissions to regular and special sessions follow identical format, instructions, deadlines and procedures.

See the special sessions page for details.


Prospective authors are invited to submit their contributions before 20 November 2017.

Registration and copyright transfer

By submitting your paper (both the submission and the final version),

  • you confirm that, in case of acceptance of your submission, at least one of the authors will register and pay the registration fee before 16 February 2018;
  • you confirm that one of the registered authors will attend the conference and present the paper;
  • you confirm that the same work has not been published or submitted elsewhere (conference or journal);
  • you confirm that the same work will not be submitted to any other conference or journal before the notification of acceptance or rejection of your submission to ESANN;
  • you accept not to distribute your paper before the conference (in particular, you will not make it available on a web page or in a publication repository);
  • you give the rights to distribute and reproduce your paper in any form (paper and electronic) to the ESANN organization (d-side s.a.). In particular, you accept that your paper will be printed in the proceedings, made available on the web and on any possible electronic support. You keep the rights on your paper and you may freely distribute it and archive it in any repository, provided that full reference is given. Once it will be made available on the ESANN proceedings web pages, only this version may be distributed (it will contain the full references inserted on each page of the paper).
