SBRN is the leading conference in Brazil dedicated to Neural Networks (NNs) and other models of Computational Intelligence (CI) such as Fuzzy Logic and Evolutionary Computing. The conference is focused on original theories and novel applications dealing with the use and analysis of computational intelligence techniques. SBRN 2012 will be held jointly with the "XXI Brazilian Symposium on Artificial Intelligence" (SBIA) and "IX Encontro de Inteligência Artificial" (ENIA) as part of the 2012 Brazilian Conference on Intelligent System (BRACIS 2012) . BRACIS 2012 will take place at Curitiba- PR, Brazil, in October 20-25, 2012.

SBRN covers all topics in CI and applications including, but is not limited to:

The invited speakers for SBRN 2012 are Prof Kenneth A. De Jong (George Mason University, EUA) and Prof Thomas G. Dietterich (Oregon State University, EUA).
