6th IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence

 November 6-9, 1994
 Hotel Intercontinental
 New Orleans, Louisiana

This conference is envisioned to foster the transfer of ideas relating
to artificial intelligence among academics, industry, and government
agencies. It focuses on methodologies which can aid the development
of AI, as well as the demanding issues involved in turning these
methodologies to practical tools. Thus, this conference encompasses
the technical aspects of specifying, developing, and evaluating
theoretical and applied mechanisms which can serve as tools for
developing intelligent systems and pursuing artificial intelligence
applications. Focal topics of interest include, but are not limited
to, the following:

* Machine Learning, Computational Learning
* Artificial Neural Networks
* Uncertainty Management, Fuzzy Logic
* Distributed and Cooperative AI, Information Agents
* Knowledge Based Systems, Intelligent Data Bases
* Intelligent Strategies for Scheduling and Planning
* AI Algorithms, Genetic Algorithms
* Expert Systems
* Natural Language Processing
* AI Applications (Vision, Robotics, Signal Processing, etc.)
* Information Modeling, Reasoning Techniques
* AI Languages, Software Engineering, Object-Oriented Systems
* Logic and Constraint Programming
* Strategies for AI development
* AI tools for Biotechnology


There will be both academic and industry tracks. A one day workshop
(November 6th) precedes the conference (November 7-9). Authors are
requested to submit original papers to the program chair by April 20,
1994. Five copies (in English) of double-spaced typed manuscript
(maximum of 25 pages) with an abstract are required. Please attach a
cover letter indicating the conference track (academic/industry) and
areas (in order of preference) most relevant to the paper. Include
the contact author's postal address, e-mail address, and telephone
number. Submissions in other audio-visual forms are acceptable only
for the industry track, but they must focus on methodology and timely
results on AI technological applications and problems. Authors will
be notified of acceptance by July 15, 1994 and will be given instruc-
tions for camera ready papers at that time. The deadline for camera
ready papers will be August 19, 1994. Outstanding papers will be eli-
gible for publication in the International Journal on Artificial
Intelligence Tools.

Submit papers and panel proposals by April 20, 1994 to the Program
