The 19th International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP 2012)
November 26-29, 2012 Doha, Qatar The 19th International Conference on Neural Information Processing(ICONIP 2012) will be held in Doha, Qatar during November 26-29, 2012. One of the Gulf states, Qatar has one of the world's fastest-growing economies and the highest income per capita. Qatar has made significant investment in education, especially higher education. Qatar aims to become one of the world's strongest knowledge societies. Also, Qatar is a major regional leisure and sports destination (Qatar is the host nation of 2022 FIFA World Cup). ICONIP 2012 will provide a high-level international forum for scientists, researchers, industrial professionals, and students worldwide. We are so fortunate and proud to have Shun-ichi Amari, Leon Chua, Rebort Desimone, Stephen Grossberg, Michael Jordan as our keynote speakers, and Majid Ahmadi, Guanrong Chen, Nikola Kasabov, Juergen Kurths, Erkki Oja, Marios M. Polycarpou, Leszek Rutkowski, Ron Sun, Jun Wang as our plenary speakers. ICONIP2012 is proud to offer a number of Travel Fellowships mainly to students, and to researchers from developing countries.
All accepted papers will be published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and/or special issues of SCI journals. Already confirmed special issues will be published in the following SCI journals:

1. Neural Computing and Applications
2. Neurocomputing
3. Cognitive Computation
