Neural computation and artificial neural networks have seen an explosion of
interest over the recent decades, and are being successfully applied across
an extraordinary range of problem domains, in areas as diverse as finance,
medicine, engineering, geology and physics, in problems of complex dynamics
and complex behavior prediction, classification or control. Several
architectures, learning strategies and algorithms have been introduced in
this highly dynamic field in the last couple of decades. Nowadays, having
reached notable scientific and applicative maturity, neural computation and
issued techniques are considered as major basis toward the completion of
intelligent artificial systems. This conference intends to be a major forum
for scientists, engineers and practitioners interested in the study,
analysis, design, modeling and implementation of neural computing systems,
both theoretically and in a broad range of application fields.

NCTA is part of IJCCI, the 8th International Joint Conference on
Computational Intelligence.

IJCCI 2016 will be held in conjunction with IC3K 2016.

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under
an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef ( and every
paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the
SCITEPRESS Digital Library.
The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters
Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier
Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.


The awards will be announced and bestowed at the congress closing session.
