Neural Networks are dramatically changing in recent years. Besides the general progression in multi-core and many-core designs there is a strong demand for emerging nano-scale technologies with low power dissipation, intelligent, bio-inspired machines, massively-parallel architectures with learning capabilities, and memristive systems.

The workshop on Advances in Neural Networks and Applications 2018 (ANNA’18) will cover advanced aspects of the Neural Networks theory with strong emphasis on different applications in both the science and real practice. It is a platform for postgraduate training of Ph.D. students and young scientists where well-known experts of the field will present advanced aspects of neural network theory and applications. Apart from the educational part of the workshop a conference with original authors’ papers will take place. Potential authors are invited to submit their papers on the workshop topics. The workshop on Advances in Neural Networks and Applications 2018 (ANNA’18) is under the methodological supervision of IEEE CAS Cellular Nanoscale and Array Computing Technical Committee. It is technically co-sponsored by the International Neural Network Society (INNS) and is a regular John Atanasoff Society of Automatics and Informatics (SAI) event.

The workshop will be held at the Frédéric Joliot-Curie International House of Scientists, 15-17 September 2018, St. St. Konstantin and Elena Resort, Bulgaria.
