Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 1st International Conference on Deep Learning Theory and Applications (DeLTA 2020) which was sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC). DeLTA 2020 was held in cooperation with the ACM Special Interest Group on Artificial Intelligence (ACM SIGAI), the International Neural Network Society (INNS) and the European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology (EUSFLAT). It was endorsed by the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) and the Science and Technology Events (SCITEVENTS) was the Logistics Partner. This year DeLTA was, exceptionally, held as a web-based event, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, from 8 - 10 July. The Conference Program included oral presentations (full papers and short papers) and posters, organized in five simultaneous tracks: “Models and Algorithms”, “Machine Learning”, “Big Data Analytics”, “Computer Vision Applications” and “Natural Language Understanding”. We are proud to announce that the program also included two plenary keynote lectures, given by internationally distinguished researchers, namely – Petia Radeva (Universitat de Barcelona, Spain – Distinguished IAPR Speaker) and Vincent Lepetit (École des Ponts ParisTech, France). DeLTA received 28 paper submissions from 16 countries. To evaluate each submission, a double-blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee, whose members are highly qualified researchers in DeLTA topic areas. Based on the classifications provided, 4 papers were selected as full papers which led to a full paper acceptance ratio of 14%. These strict acceptance ratios show the intention to preserve a high-quality forum, which we expect to develop further next year. All papers presented at this conference will be available in the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. The organization distributed three paper awards at the conference closing session. A "Best Paper Award", "Best Student Paper Award" and a “Best Poster Award” was conferred to the author(s) of the best papers presented at the conference, selected by the Program/Conference Chairs based on the best combined marks of paper reviewing, assessed by the Program Committee, and paper presentation quality, assessed by session chairs at the conference venue. We would like to express our thanks to all participants. First of all, to the authors, whose quality work is the essence of this conference; secondly to all members of the Program Committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and valuable time. We would also like to deeply thank the invited speakers for their excellent contribution in sharing their knowledge and vision. Finally, we gratefully acknowledge the professional support of the INSTICC team for all organizational processes, especially given the need to introduce online streaming, forum management, direct messaging facilitation and other web-based activities in order to make it possible for DeLTA 2020 authors to present their work and share ideas with colleagues in spite of the logistic difficulties caused by the current pandemic situation.
