The 2023 Neuro-Inspired Computing Elements (NICE) Conference was the 10th annual meeting of researchers in the neural computing field. Like previous editions, NICE 2023 did focus on the interplay between neural theory, neural algorithms, neuromorphic architectures and hardware, and applications for neural computing technology.  

NICE aims to involve diverse participation from all over the world and bring together research communities with universities, government, and industry.

Call for papers – (closed since 19 December 2022)

The selected papers have been published in the proceedings (published 12 April 2023), DOI 10.1145/3584954.

The submission of 4-8 pages papers was done on easychair.

Papers should cover unpublished work and emphasize the novel aspects and the potential impact on the neural computing community. Preference will be given towards submissions describing ambitious approaches to bringing neural inspiration into real-world computing applications. From these submissions we will invite several short talks, lightning talks, and poster presentations.

We also welcome Abstracts (1-2 pages) for ‘Work in Progress’ or ‘Late Breaking News’. These submissions will be considered for poster presentations, lightning talks or demonstrations when applicable. These submissions will not be considered for the proceedings.

As with previous years, NICE is planning on publishing an online proceedings volume, details are below. Authors can also opt out of including their paper in the proceedings.
