COURSE CONTENTS 

Neural networks (NN) have become a very important tool in classification and
regression tasks. The applications are nowadays abundant, e.g. in the
engineering, economy and biology areas. The Summer School on NN is dedicated
to explain relevant NN paradigms, namely multilayer perceptrons (MLP),
radial basis function networks (RBF) and support vector machines (SVM) used
for classification and regression tasks, illustrated with applications to
real data. Specific topics are also presented, namely Deep Neural Networks,
Recurrent Neural Networks, Functional Networks, Multi-Valued and UB Neurons,
Entropic Neural Networks Criteria and Data Mining using NN. 

Classes include practical sessions with appropriate software tools. The
trainee has, therefore, the opportunity to apply the taught concepts and
become conversant with a broad range of NN topics and applications.

A special poster session will also provide a discussion forum where the
participants can obtain peer guidance for their projects
