Dear Colleague, 

I would like to inform you about the changes to the dates of the 2001
international conference on computational intelligence for modelling,
control and automation - CIMCA'2001.

The conference dates have been changed due to the Independence Day
celebrations in USA and a large number of requests (for change of
dates) from researchers interested to attend the conference.

CIMCA'2001 will now be held in Las Vegas, USA on 9-11 July 2001.

Please find below a copy of the call for papers for the CIMCA'2001. 

Yours sincerely 
CIMCA'2001 Secretariat 

 International Conference on Computational Intelligence for Modelling,

The international conference on computational intelligence for
modelling, control and automation will be held in Las Vegas, USA on
9-11 July 2001. The conference provides a medium for the exchange of
ideas between theoreticians and practitioners to address the important
issues in computational intelligence, modelling, control and
automation. The conference will consist of both plenary sessions and
contributory sessions, focusing on theory, implementation and
applications of computational intelligence techniques to modelling,
control and automation. For contributory sessions, draft papers (4
pages or more) are being solicited. Several well-known keynote
speakers will address the conference. Topics of the conference
include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

Modern and Advanced Control Strategies 
Neural Networks Control, 
Fuzzy Logic Control, 
Genetic Algorithms & Evolutionary Control, 
Model-Predictive Control, 
Adaptive and Optimal Control, 
Intelligent Control Systems, 
Robotics and Automation, 
Fault Diagnosis, 
Industrial Automations

Hybrid Systems 
Fuzzy Evolutionary Systems, 
Fuzzy Expert Systems, 
Fuzzy Neural Systems,

Decision Making and Information Retrieval 
Case-Based Reasoning, 
Decision Analysis, 
Intelligent Databases & Information Retrieval, 
Dynamic Systems Modelling, 
Decision Support Systems, 
Multi-criteria Decision Making, 
Qualitative and Approximate-Reasoning

Paper Submission
Papers will be selected based on their originality, significance,
correctness, and clarity of presentation. Extended abstract (4 pages)
should be submitted

to the following e-mail or the following address: 

 CIMCA'2001 Secretariat

Message 2: Malay/Indonesian Symposium: venue change

Date: Wed, 20 Dec 2000 16:09:19 +0700
From: David Gil <>
Subject: Malay/Indonesian Symposium: venue change





Due to the current unsettled conditions in the Middle East, the
symposium, which was originally scheduled to take place on the 13 - 14
June in Jerusalem, has been moved to an alternative location and date. 

Following is a revised call for abstracts:


The Fifth


is now scheduled for

16 - 17 June 2001
Leipzig, Germany


Persons wishing to present a paper at the symposium are invited to
submit a one-page abstract, by regular mail, email, or fax, to Uri
Tadmor, at any of the following addresses:

PKBB, Unika Atma Jaya, Jl. Sudirman 51, Jakarta 12930, Indonesia
fax: 62-21-571-9560

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 15 March 2001

Early submission procedure:
Abstracts may be submitted right away, or at any time before the 15
March deadline. Persons submitting their abstracts early will be
notified immediately whether their paper has been accepted for
presentation at the symposium, and, in case of acceptance, will
immediately be sent an official letter of invitation. (The early
submission procedure is designed to make it easier for some participants
to apply for funding and leave.) 


Papers to be presented at the symposium should be concerned with the
Malay / Indonesian language in any of its varieties. In addition to the
standardized versions of Bahasa Melayu and Bahasa Indonesia, papers are
particularly welcome dealing with non-canonical varieties such as
Peranakan Malay, Bazaar Malay, and regional dialects of Malay and
Indonesian. Papers may be in any of the subfields of linguistics, and
may represent variegated approaches and diverse theoretical persuasions.
Presentations at the symposium will be delivered in English.
