2020-03-27: COVID-19 Update: We are monitoring closely the situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. At the moment, we still work on the assumption that ANNPR 2020 can happen as planned in September. However, we are going to re-evaluate the situation within the next weeks and may consider potential options such as an extension of the conference deadlines, moving to an online-only format or to postpone the event to 2021. We will keep you updated.

ZHAW will host ANNPR 2020, an international academic workshop on the application of Neural Networks, on September 2nd-4th, 2020 in Winterthur, Switzerland.
