Potential EANN series renaming
Dear colleagues of the EANN community,
You will be able to vote during registration and indicate your preference (keep the old name; move to the new name).
The EANN Organising Committee
Update from the Organisers
18th of May 2021
During last weeks we were trying hard to build a Hybrid Conference setup in order to be able to provide to all participants wishing to join EANN/AIAI 2021 physically at the beautiful island of Crete the opportunity and option to travel and join the event in person. Unfortunately, rules and regulations about conference physical participation as described in the national COVID-19 legislation framework makes physical participation almost impossible. The rules require, among hundreds of others, that:
- All participants should perform onsite (on the hotel) a COVID antigen test (vaccinated people also). Possible positive cases should follow a really strict protocol.
- Social distance of 1,5 meter remains and it is also applied to all social activities (Coffee breaks, welcome reception, conference party, lunch breaks etc).
- Only seated persons allowed for all conference events and activities (scientific and social)
- Security services should exist to all activities in order to check and apply all rules and precautions.
- Session attendance requires seat pre-reservation while at the same time id check/registration is obligatory before joining any session.
- Framework can become stricter without previous notification in case of positive COVID cases.
All the above do not allow us to run a conference that will provide the requested level of scientific quality and academic freedom or that it could be as socializing and pleasuring as it should be.
Although that we are forced to run EANN/AIAI 2021 as a remote LIVE conference, it is NOT going to be a static event. It is going to be an event with live presentations, a lot of interaction, with Questions and Answers Sessions and your participation is required.
More (technical) info about the conference setup will be mailed directly to conference participants.
If you have any questions regarding the organizing of 22nd EANN and the 17th AIAI 2021, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Special opportunity to attend two back to back conferences
June 25-July 2nd 2021 in Greece
We would like to bring to your attention a special opportunity to attend two back to back computer science conferences taking place in two beautiful islands in Greece in June 2021.
- The 17th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence Applications and Innovations ( AIAI ) on the island of CRETE (June 25-27, 2021) and
- The 14th International Conference on The PErvasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments ( PETRA ) on the island of CORFU (June 29-July 2nd).
Thus, one could attend both conferences in a period of one week, by flying first to Crete for AIAI and then flying from Crete to Corfu for PETRA, perhaps with a short stopover in Athens!

The Proceedings of the 22nd EANN 2021 will be published in the SPRINGER INNS (International Neural Networks Society) book series and INDEXED to the WEB OF SCIENCE and DBLP

Update to the EANN/AIAI Community from the organisers
Dear colleagues/friends of the AIAI/EANN community,
Developments in the Covid-19 virus, have created a worldwide tragedy that we are watching on a daily basis hoping to end as soon as possible. After 17 years of holding AIAI and 22 of hodling EANN, very strong links have been developed with the members of our scientific community. In fact, we are all members of the EANN/AIAI Society, sharing our common scientific research interests/visions.
This has been proven very clearly in last year’s (2020) event, with the high volume of submissions despite the major challenges facing our societies.
We wish to thank you very much for that!!
Human health is the most important asset of all. We are interested in the health and wellbeing of all our community, under the challenging circumstances that we are all facing.
We hope that the crisis ends in due time (till end of June 2021) and to hold the conference in the arranged fantastic, real paradise venue.
No matter what happens, we have proven last year that we can organize the conferences interactively through the web, or in a hybrid mode.
For the 2021 events, if the virus is still present, we will keep both options open. The colleagues of our EANN/AIAI Society will be able to chose between live presentation from the venue and remote presentation using Webex platform.

Utilizing Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) for AI acceleration without noticing it !
Prof. Yannis Papaefstathiou
Three years ago, in AIAI I have presented an overview of how the designers can utilize FPGAs in their embedded systems, through the use of High-Level-Synthesis (HLS) Tools. In this tutorial we will dive into the new development approaches that allow the designer to take full advantage of FPGAs, both in the Cloud and on the Edge, while barely noticing that their core processing is executed on reconfigurable logic. The new emerging design flow is based on seamlessly utilizing open-source accelerated libraries that are being optimized for execution on the new highly heterogeneous FPGA-based systems.
