Special Sessions (2017)


The provisionally accepted special sessions for IJCNN 2017 are listed below. These topics will be made available in the paper submission system.

All special session papers go through the same rigorous review process. Special sessions with only a small number of accepted papers will be canceled, and the accepted papers moved to the regular oral or poster sessions.
