INNS EANN Community
Engineering Applications of Neural Networks (EANN conference) started from Otaniemi Finland (more than twenty years ago). Though its name is referring to Neural Networks (for historical reasons) its topics are expanding to every Artificial Intelligence area.
Today, its society comprises of hundreds AI experts-enthusiasts, academicians and researchers from all over the globe (Europe, Asia, America and Australia). They are interacting by presenting their scientific achievements or by discussing numerous aspects of AI advances, under the 4th industrial revolution.
The EANN conference now has its own society, consisting of followers who have been attending it for more than two decades in the row, while new members are constantly joining its family.
After twenty two years of continuous presence in the literature, the members of the EANN society, have formed a very strong community, under the auspices of the INNS (EANN Special interest Group). This group is divided in specific scientific subgroups-subcommunities, specializing in timely hot AI areas. Their members are organizing timely annual workshops specific by subject, which are run and attended by AI professionals-scientists who wish to share knowledge, ideas, problems and insights in every AI subdomain.
Several subcommunities with specific orientation in their research area have been formed during the years under the frame of EANN conference. Their subjects are related to AI Cybersecurity algorithms, Engineering AI modeling and recently on AI Ethics. The Community of AI and Ethics is driven by Professor John Macintyre, Dean of the University of Sunderland UK, Professor Mathhias Scheutz, Tufts School of AS and other colleagues from the USA.
Though the above communities are here to stay, the above list is dynamic, as new Communities devoted to new AI subdomains are joining to this global event every year.
Apart from the papers’ presentation, the distinguished members of the EANN Special interest Group society are offering new insights by giving free Tutorials to conference delegates. This adds actual more merit to the event and enhances the benefits of the members of the EANN community.
One of the many benefits for the members of these subcommunities is the fact that they bring together scientists, who are interested either in a narrow specific domain or in hot multidisciplinary areas, or in an emerging subject. This can lead to increased connection and awareness of developments.
Under the framework of this community, new researchers are encouraged to proceed further to their developments, by receiving best papers awards together with financial awards, or checks provided by Springer to offer them free access to important scientific publications. Moreover, under the guise of noble rivalry, old and young researchers are invited to complete their research and submit their extended paper for review in prestigious scientific journals. Especially for the young researchers of the EANN community, this is a unique opportunity to publish not only in the springer proceedings which have millions of recent citations, but also in major scientific journals with a high citation rate.
