The Seventh International Symposium on Neural Networks (ISNN 2010)
will be held in Shanghai, following the successes of previous events.
Shanghai is the largest city in China, located in her eastern coast at
the outlet of the Yangtze River. Originally a fishing and textiles
town, Shanghai grew to importance in the 19th century. In 2005
Shanghai became the world's busiest cargo port. The city is an
emerging tourist destination renowned for its historical landmarks
such as the Bund and Xintiandi, its modern and ever-expanding Pudong
skyline including the Oriental Pearl Tower, and its new reputation as
a cosmopolitan center of culture and design. Today, Shanghai is the
largest center of commerce and finance in mainland China, and has been
described as the “showpiece” of the world's fastest-growing economy.
In addition, Shanghai is the venue of forthcoming World Expo 2010 to
take place from May 1 to October 31 (the symposium registration
includes one day tour to the World Expo on June 10).

ISNN 2010 aims to provide a high-level international forum for
scientists, engineers, and educators to present the state of the art
of neural network research and applications in related fields. The
symposium will feature plenary speeches given by world renowned
scholars, regular sessions with broad coverage, and special sessions
focusing on popular topics.

Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers to
ISNN 2010. In addition, proposals for special sessions within the
technical scopes of the symposium are solicited. Special sessions, to
be organized by internationally recognized experts, aim to bring
together researchers in special focused topics. Papers submitted for
special sessions are to be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used
for the contributed papers. Researchers interested in organizing
special sessions are invited to submit formal proposals to ISNN 2010.
A special session proposal should include the session title, a brief
description of the scope and motivation, names, contact information
and brief biographical information on the organizers.

Authors are invited to submit full-length papers (10 pages maximum) by
the submission deadline through the online submission system.
Potential organizers are also invited to enlist five or more papers
with cohesive topics to form special sessions. The submission of a
paper implies that the paper is original and has not been submitted
under review or copyright-protected elsewhere and will be presented
by an author if accepted. All submitted papers will be refereed by
experts in the field based on the criteria of originality,
significance, quality, and clarity. The authors of accepted papers
will have an opportunity to revise their papers and take consideration
of the referees' comments and suggestions. The ISNN 2010 proceedings
will be published by Springer in its series of Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (EI) and Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing
(ISTP). Selected good papers will be included in special issues of
several journals such as Neurocomputing, Neural Computation and
Applications, Cognitive Neurodynamics, Cognitive Computation, and
Mathematics and Computers in Simulation. In addition, the
International Neural Network Society (INNS) will offer two best
student paper awards (US$250 each with one-year INNS membership).
