ESANN 2017 - Proceedings

25th European Symposium on Artificial Neural Networks, Computational Intelligence and Machine Learning

Since 1993, ESANN has become a reference for researchers on fundamental and theoretical aspects of artificial neural networks, computational intelligence, machine learning and related topics. Each year, around 120 specialists attend ESANN, in order to present their latest results and comprehensive surveys, and to discuss the future developments in this field.

The ESANN 2017 conference follows this tradition, while adapting its scope to the new 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.

The twenty-fifth ESANN will be organised in Bruges, on 26-28 April 2017. It has become a tradition to hold the conference in this beautiful, human-size mediaeval city, whose atmosphere is favourable to efficient work but also to enjoyable cultural visits and relaxation. The centre of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
