Special Issue "Innovative Topologies and Algorithms for Neural Networks"
A special issue of Future Internet (ISSN 1999-5903).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2019
Prof. Dr. Maria Gabriella Xibilia
The introduction of deep neural networks and new training procedures and topologies has solicited a renewed interest in the field of neural computation. Consequently, the use of deep structures has significantly improved the state-of-the-art in many application fields, such as computer vision, speech, language processing, soft sensors, and IoT, just to mention a few.
The chances of success of a neural network are largely linked to the adequate choice of the network architecture and the training algorithm. As a matter of fact, much of the recent interest on neural networks has been devoted to propose and study novel architectures, including solutions tailored to specific problems. Nevertheless, the choice of the structure, the network sizing, and hyperparameters selection, still are the subject of a vivid research interest.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together developments in the field of innovative topologies and algorithms for neural networks, along with applications relevant, but not limited, to industry and the IoT. Papers addressing the wide range of aspects of this technology are sought, including, but not limited to:
- Deep Belief Networks
- Long- Short-Term Memory networks
- Convolution Neural Networks
- Hierarchical-Deep models
- Other innovative structures
- Supervised learning
- Semi-supervised learning
- Unsupervised learning
- Ensemble learning
- Network structure selection and validation
- Neural networks for Data Fusion
- Computational intelligence methods for industrial applications
- Soft Sensors
- Neural Networks for the IoT and IIoT

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Future Internet is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
