 and applications. We expect some 60 carefully selected
 papers to be presented to an audience of some 500 attenders.


 - Artificial Intelligence (AI)
 - Automatization and Control (AC)
 - Software Technology (ST)
 - Information Systems (IS)
 - Distributed and Parallel Systems (DPS)
 - Virtual Education (VE)
 - Computing Engineering (CE)


 There will be 6 invited talks. Confirmed by today:

 - Balakrishnan Chandrasekaran
 - Gerhard Ritter
 - others to be confirmed soon

 Among our past invited speakers we can mention
 Marvin Minsky, Hal Bergel, Isaac Scherson, Frank Dignum, 
 Herbert Freeman -- just to name a few out of a long list.


 In addition to regular proceedings (with ISBN), 
 a considerable selection of papers will be published
 as a prestigious hardcover book.


 The conf will be held in Mexico City, the 500 year old 
 ancient cultural capital of the Americas and an excellent 
 tourist attraction.

 The conf will feature a 2-day excursion program including 
 excursions to Teotihuacan pyramids and Cacauhamilpa cave.
 2000 years old Teotihuacan pyramids are one of the most 
 impressive and large archeological places in America. 
 The Cacauhamilpa cave is a 2 km long underground world 
 (recall Tolkien!) with up to 85 meters high halls and an 
 underground river flushing from inside the mountain.

 Other recommended places to visit include the Historical 
 Center of the City and the largest in the world Antropological 
 Museum of Mexico City, which presents a great number of 
 original monuments of both Aztec and Mayan cultures. 

 To get an idea of our tourist program, you can visit the 
 site of another conf that we have organized this Winter,, especifically
 and the photo galleries of the past events: (best),, (under construction).
 [The excursion to the butterflies will not be included 
 becuase of the season.]

 Welcome to Mexico! !Bienvenidos!
