Call for Paper

IEEE International Workshop on Parallel Computations for Neural Networks (PCNN)

in conjunction with the International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2014)

Bologna, Italy, July 21-25, 2014


The goal of the workshop is to provide an international forum for reporting progress and recent advances in parallel computing techniques, hardware and software tools for speeding-up functioning and training of traditional and bio-inspired neural network models on the modern high-performance computing systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

*         Specialized computing hardware, transputers and FPGA-implementations for neural networks

*         Parallel training algorithms for feed-forward, recurrent, RBF, recirculation and other neural networks

*         Parallel supervised and unsupervised training and reinforcement learning algorithms

*         Parallelization of neural network algorithms on many-core systems, clusters, grids and clouds

*         GPU-based implementations of neural networks

*         Coarse-grain parallelization of neural networks

*         Parallel training algorithms for deep-belief networks

*         Parallelization of cognitive neural models

*         Parallel implementations and training algorithms for spiking neural networks

*         Grid-based frameworks for neural networks execution and parallelization

*         Modeling of large-scale neural models using parallel computing techniques

*         Neural simulators in neuroscience using parallel computing

*         Computational neuroscience using parallel architectures

*         Neural network simulation tools and libraries using parallel computing

*         High-performance machine intelligence


The accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings together with the proceedings of HPCS 2014.

Instruction for Paper Submissions:
