Extended version of selected papers will be invited for publication in special issues of international journals after the conference.

The ICONIP'09 online submission system is at Springer's Online Conference Service (OCS). More information can be found at the paper submission site of ICONIP'09. (http://iconip09.org/submit.php)


The following special issues have been confirmed thus far:

- Int. Journal of Computational and Theoretical Nanoscience (American Scientific Publisher)
- Neural Computing and Applications (Springer)
- Neurocomputing (Elsevier)
- Evolving Systems (Springer)
- The Australian Journal of Intelligent Information Systems (ANU)

More special issues in high quality journals will be announced at the conference website later on.
