Message 1: Computational Ling: Intelligent Systems and Applications (ISA'2000)

Date: Mon, 20 Dec 1999 17:16:46 -0700
From: Pascal Ryffel <pascalicsc.ab.ca>
Subject: Computational Ling: Intelligent Systems and Applications (ISA'2000)


First Call for Papers 
International Congress on 
INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS (ISA'2000) 
to be held at the University of Wollongong 
(near Sydney), Australia 
from December 12-15, 2000

Congress aims to provide researchers and 
practitioners from academia and industry with a forum 
to report on the latest developments in intelligent 
systems and their applications within the four major 
areas of computational intelligence, interactive and 
collaborative computing, industrial systems, and 
biologically inspired systems. The Congress will also 
provide a unique opportunity for dialogue and synergy 
between scientists and engineers from different 
backgrounds with the common interest in intelligent 
systems.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM 
ISA'2000 will include invited plenary talks, contributed 
sessions, invited sessions, workshops and tutorials. 


CALL FOR INVITED SESSIONS 
The organization of invited sessions is encouraged. Prospective 
organizers are requested to send a session proposal (consisting 
of 4-5 invited papers, the recommended session-chair and 
co-chair, as well as a short statement describing the title and 
the purpose of the session) to the respective symposium chair 
or the congress organizer. Invited sessions should preferably 
start with a tutorial paper. The registration fee of the session 
organizer will be waived, if at least 4 authors of invited 
papers register to the conference.


POSTER PRESENTATIONS 
Poster presentations are encouraged for people who wish to 
receive peer feedback, and practical examples of applied research 
are particularly welcome. Poster sessions will allow the 
presentation and discussion of respective papers, which will 
also be included in the conference proceedings.


CALL FOR WORKSHOPS, TUTORIALS AND OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS 
Several workshops/tutorials are planned for ISA'2000. Each 
workshop/tutorial will focus on a particular topic, and consist 
of several presentations and open discussions. The proposal for 
a workshop/tutorial should include the title, topics covered, 
proposed speakers, targeted audiences, and estimated length 
(hours) of the workshop/tutorial. The proposal should be 
submitted either to the congress chair, the corresponding 
symposium chair or the congress organizer by March 31, 2000.


SUBMISSION OF PAPERS 
Prospective authors are requested to either send a draft paper 
(maximum 7 pages) or an extended abstract for review by the 
International Program Committee. All submissions must be 
written in English, starting with a succinct statement of the 
problem, the results achieved, their significance and a 
comparison with previous work. 

Submissions must be received by March 31, 2000.

The submission should also include
