Please keep your conference announcement as short as you can; LINGUIST will not post conference announcements which in our opinion are excessively long. Also, please remember that, once posted, your announcement will be permanently available at our website: http://www.linguistlist.org/issues/indices/Confs1997r.html For this reason, we discourage multiple submissions of the same conference announcement. Thank you for your cooperation.

SCOPE
- ---

The theme for the Joint ISIC/ISAS'98 conference is "Intelligent
Control of Complex Systems." We define intelligent control as that
which causes a complex system to successfully perform complex physical
tasks in the presence of uncertainty and unpredictability. This
conference will focus on theoretical issues, engineering
methodologies, and applications of intelligent control systems.

CONFERENCE TOPICS
- ---------------

o Theory of intelligent systems
o Intelligent system architectures
o Engineering principles for intelligent control systems
o Intelligent control applications
o Performance measures
o Goals, skills, and behavior generation
o Deliberative, reactive, and emergent behavior
o Planning and problem solving
o Perception, cognition, and symbol grounding
o Knowledge representation and world modeling
o Entities, events, attributes, and relationship
o Multi-level range and resolution in time and space
o Sensing and acting
o Sensory processing and situation assessment
o Complexity (in the controller and in the world)
o Attention, grouping, filtering, estimation, and recognition
o Game theory and decision making
o Values, motives, and behavior
o Learning, adaptation, and optimization
o Self-reference, introspection, and consciousness
o Hybrid systems
o Simulation, modeling, and prediction
o Semiotics
o Language, communication, meaning, and pragmatics
o Inference, deduction, probability, and uncertainty
o Symbolic manipulation vs. connectionist vs. control theory approaches
o Modern control methods for intelligent systems
o Multi-agent systems
o Human-machine interfaces
o Real-time control and computational resources
