RC 2019

September 17-19, 2019, Munich, Germany

The 1st International Workshop on Reservoir Computing (RC 2019)

Workshop of the 28th International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (ICANN 2019)


Reservoir Computing (RC) is a leading edge paradigm for the design of efficiently trainable Recurrent Neural Network models. The first International Workshop on Reservoir Computing will bring together researchers to discuss the state-of-the-art and open challenges for the field of RC, in all its declinations. These include, but are not limited to, new models of Echo State Networks and Liquid State Machines, non-conventional hardware implementations, new emerging paradigms (e.g., conceptors), extensions of RC to complex streams of data, hybrids of deep and shallow models, modeling of neuronal dynamics, and many more. The workshop provides an open forum for researchers to meet and present recent contributions and ideas in a highly interdisciplinary environment.

See the topics of interest for the RC 2019 workshop in the call for papers.

Info on papers submission and on the workshop program will be available soon.

Keynotes Talks

"Bringing reservoirs up to speed for deep learning"

"Reservoirs as temporal filters and feature mappings"

Workshop Proceedings

Papers accepted for the RC 2019 workshop are published within the ICANN 2019 proceedings in a Lecture Notes in Computer Science volume (Springer).

Special Issue

Selected papers from the RC 2019 workshop will be invited for a special issue on the journal Cognitive Computation (Springer, IF 3.479).


Contributions for the RC 2019 workshop should be submitted through the ICANN 2019 submission system and will undergo the same careful peer-review process by a panel of experts in the field.

See more info on the Submission webpage.
