The Sixth International Symposium on Neural Networks (ISNN 2009) will
be held in Wuhan, following the successes of previous events. Compose
d of three parts (Wuchang, Hankou, and Hanyang), Wuhan is the capital
of Hubei Province in central China with a long history and rich herita
ges. During the warrior-states period (481-221 BC), Wuhan is a part in
Chu Kingdom It began to prosper as a commercial town about two-thousa
nd years ago, when it was called Yingwuzhou (Parrot beach). During the
Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD), the region became one of the most prosper
ous commercial centers along the Yangtze River. By the end of the Ming
Dynasty (1368-164 AD), Hankou was one of the four most famous cities
in China. Today, Wuhan is an educational and industrial center and a h
ub of water and rail transportation in China.

ISNN 2009 aims to provide a high-level international forum for scient
ists, engineers, and educators to present the state of the art of neur
al network research and applications in related fields. The symposium
will feature plenary speeches given by world renowned scholars, regula
r sessions with broad coverage, and special sessions focusing on popul
ar topics.

Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers to
ISNN 2009. In addition, proposals for special sessions within the tech
nical scopes of the symposium are solicited. Special sessions, to be o
rganized by internationally recognized experts, aim to bring together
researchers in special focused topics. Papers submitted for special se
ssions are to be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the con
tributed papers. Researchers interested in organizing special sessions
are invited to submit formal proposals to ISNN 2009. A special sessio
n proposal should include the session title, a brief description of th
e scope and motivation, names, contact information and brief biographi
cal information on the organizers.

Authors are invited to submit full-length papers (10 pages maximum) b
y the submission deadline through the online submission system. Potent
ial organizers are also invited to enlist five or more papers with coh
esive topics to form special sessions. The submission of a paper impli
es that the paper is original and has not been submitted under review
or is not copyright-protected elsewhere and will be presented by an au
thor if accepted. All submitted papers will be refereed by experts in
the field based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality,
and clarity. The authors of accepted papers will have an opportunity
to revise their papers and take consideration of the referees' comment
s and suggestions. Papers presented at ISNN 2009 will be published in
the EI-indexed proceedings (Springer LNCS) and some selected good pape
rs will be included in special issues of several SCI-indexed journals.
