Symposium Call for Papers

4th International Symposium on AI & Neuroscience – ACAIN 2024 Call for Papers

September 24-25, 2024

Riva del Sole Resort & SPA, Castiglione della Pescaia (Grosseto), Tuscany, Italy

Welcome to ACAIN 2024, the International Symposium on Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience. It will take place in Riva del Sole Resort & SPA, Castiglione della Pescaia (Grosseto), Tuscany, Italy.

The ACAIN 2024  is aimed at AI researchers, neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, computational neuroscientists, deep learning/machine learning researchers. ACAIN 2024 will be a special opportunity to hear about cutting-edge research by leading scientists in AI and Neuroscience.

The two days of keynote talks and oral presentations (the Symposium, September 24-25) will be preceded by lectures of leading scientists (the Course, September 22-23).

We invite the submission of technical papers for the main technical track of the conference. Submissions should be significant and original on all aspects of Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience. We especially encourage papers on interdisciplinary applications of AI, Neuroscience, Cognitive Science, Deep Learning and Computational Neuroscience.

The International Symposium Post-Proceedings will be published by NatureSpringer. Papers will appear in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Types of Submissions

When submitting a paper to ACAIN 2024, authors are required to select one of the following three types of papers:

  • long paper: original novel and unpublished work (min 12 pages, max. 15 pages, including References, in Springer LNCS format or any format or layout that can be used by reviewers to evaluate your manuscript);
  • short paper: an extended abstract of novel work (min 6 pages, max. 11 pages, including References, in Springer LNCS format or any format or layout that can be used by reviewers to evaluate your manuscript);
  • work for oral presentation only (no page restriction; any format). For example, work already published elsewhere, which is relevant and which may solicit fruitful discussion at the conference.

Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are available in Overleaf.

We expect high-quality papers in terms of their scientific contribution, rigor, correctness, quality of presentation and reproducibility of experiments.

Accepted papers must contain significant novel results. Results can be either theoretical or empirical. Results will be judged on the degree to which they have been objectively established and/or their potential for scientific and technological impact.

Authors should consult Springer’s Instructions for Authors of Proceedings and use either the LaTeX or the Word templates provided on the authors’ page for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a License-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

If any of the authors contributing to ACAIN 2024 are interested in Open Access or Open Choice, please refer to our webpage for prices and additional information. Springer teams would need the invoicing address and the CC-BY licence-to-publish agreement at the same time as the files for the publication

The authors may choose to submit your manuscript in any format or layout that can be used by reviewers to evaluate your manuscript. The manuscript should/must contain high enough quality figures for reviewing.

Reviewing for ACAIN 2024 is double blind (reviewers do not know the author’s identity or vice versa). Submitted papers must adopt the following to two rules:

  • author names and institutions must be omitted, and
  • references to authors’ own related research work must be in the third person.

All accepted long/short papers  will be published in a volume of the series on  Lecture Notes in Computer Science from Nature-Springer after the  symposium.

As for the previous two editions, the post-proceedings of ACAIN 2024 symposium will be published together with the post-proceedings of LOD 2024 Conference.

At least one author of each accepted long/short paper is required to attend the symposium to present the research work.

Instructions for preparing and submitting the final versions (camera-ready papers) of all accepted papers will be available later on.
