Russian Neural Networks Society









The First Neural Network Society was organized by the scientists of the USSR at the Conference Architecture of Neurocomputers in Puschino in 1988.
In 1991 it was transformed into the Russian Neural Networks Society (RNNS).
RNNS still unites the scientists from many republics of the former Soviet Union apart of Russia.


RNNS was founded at the congress on April 18, 1991. This is an inter-regional non-profit professional organization. Its goals are the promotion of the research in the field of neuroinformatics, engineer and scientist education, and the stimulation of applied investigations in modern neural technology.

Two successful International forums on Neuroinformatics and Neurocomputing were co-sponsored by RNNS and IEEE Neural Network Council in Rostov-on-Don in 1992 and in 1995.

RNNS took part in organizing of the International Joint Conferences on Neural Networks (1999, 2001) and co-sponsored Workshop (USA-NIS Neurocomputing Opportunities Workshop) in Washington, DC (July, 1999).


RNNS organizes annual congresses of the Society and conferences in Moscow and other locations in Russian Federation.



Any scientist of the Former Soviet Union can join RNNS according filled written form sent to the Secretary of Executive Committee (details can be received by email The members of RNNS have benefits in prompt receiving of the information about all RNNS events and also can be supported by RNNS in their innovative initiatives.

The last congress of the RNNS (October 8, 2018) elected the following officials to represent the society between its congresses and monitor current activity of the RNNS:

The First RNNS conference was in 1988 in Puschino. The RNNS supported International Conference "Neurocomputers and Attention" was held in Moscow in 1989.

Two International RNNS conferences "Neuroinformatics and Neurocomputing" were held in Rostov-on-Don in 1992 and in 1995.

Russian session of IJCNN-99 (Washington) was organized by RNNS in 1999.

The Annual All - Russian Conferences "Neuroinformatics" are organized by RNNS at Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (MEPHY) (every January from 1999).

The Members of RNNS Executive Committee organize Regional Conferences on Neuroinformatics in Moscow (A.I.Galushkin), in Krasnoyarsk (A.N.Gorban'), in Rostov-on-Don (A.I.Samarin), and in Snezhinsk (S.A.Terekhov).
