 Third International Conference on
 Independent Component Analysis
 and Signal Separation

 San Diego, California
 December 9-13, 2001

Independent Component Analysis (ICA) is emerging as a new standard
area of signal processing and data analysis. ICA attempts to solve
the blind source separation problem in which sensor signals are
unknown mixtures of unknown source signals. While there are no
general analytical solutions, in the last decade researchers have
proposed good approximate methods based on simple assumptions about
the source statistics and using maximum likelihood, information
maximization and minimization of higher-order moments.

ICA theory has received attention from several research communities
including machine learning, neural networks, statistical signal
processing and Bayesian modeling. More recently numerous applications
of ICA have appeared including applications to adaptive speech
filtering, speech signal coding, biomedical signal processing,
image compression, text modeling and financial data analysis.
ICA2001 will feature the latest developments in the new field of
blind source separation. The Workshop will feature internationally
respected keynote speakers, poster sessions, and symposia on theory,
on algorithms and on applications to a wide range of fields and
data types. The Conference recreational program includes an informal
banquet and a unique opening cocktail party / unmixer.

This, the third international meeting in this series, is being
hosted by the Institute for Neural Computation, UCSD. The previous
two meetings were held in Aussois, France (December, 1999) and
Helsinki, Finland (June, 2000). This year's event will be held
December 9-13, 2001 immediately following the Neural Information
Processing Systems (NIPS) conference in Vancouver, Canada and its
post-conference workshops.

 PAPERS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGH THE WORKSHOP WEBSITE

Subject: Formal Description of Slavic Languages (FDSL-4)

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

4th European Conference on Formal Description of Slavic Languages

28-30 November, 2001

hosted by the University of Potsdam

The Slavic Department of the University of Potsdam is pleased to
announce the 4th European Conference on Formal Description of Slavic
Languages (FDSL-4).

Abstracts are invited for 30-minute talks (20-minute presentation plus
10 minutes for discussion) on Slavic syntax, semantics, phonology,
morphology, computerlinguistics, and sentence
processing. Presentations will be in any Slavic language, English or
German.

Deadline for receipt of abstracts: May 30, 2001

HOW TO SUBMIT ABSTRACTS:
Abstract submission must be by post (e-mail submissions will not be
accepted). Send 5 copies of an anonymous one-page abstract to the
postal address below. One additional page with figures, data, and
references should be appended. Please include an extra sheet of paper
with:

- title of paper
- your name
- complete mailing address and affiliation (or home address, if
necessary)
- telephone and fax numbers
- e-mail address

In addition, we ask for a camera-ready original with the author's name,
e-mail, and affiliation, which will be needed for producing a volume of
conference abstracts.

Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be notified in mid-July 2001.

Those interested in attending FDSL-4 are invited to register their
e-mail and/or postal addresses at the conference address below (e-mail
is preferred for all communication except submission of abstracts).
