Format of Submission

Authors should submit their papers, not to exceed 5000 words
(including figures and references) either electronically or in hard
copy. Papers should be in English. Papers should include an abstract
of about 100-200 words in length. Papers outside the specified length

"blind", the authors' names and affiliations along with the main area
of the paper should be given only on a separate cover sheet.

Those submitting by hard copy should send four copies of the paper.
Papers in electronic form can be in any of the following formats:
plain text, Postscript, PDF, Latex, Microsoft Word (RTF format) or
Wordstar. Submissions in electronic form are preferred.

Papers will be selected for presentation in the conference, based on
international refereeing. Proceedings of the conference consisting of
papers selected for presentation, will be published by NCST and will
be available internationally. Abstracts of presented papers will be
available on the web. A few selected papers will be published in a
special issue of Vivek.

Call for Tutorials

Proposals are invited for post-conference tutorials. Tutorials will
be half-day and will be held on December 18th, 1998. The proposal
should be presented in the form of a 200-word abstract, one page
topical outline of the content, description of the proposers and their
qualifications relating to the tutorial content.

Send papers and tutorial proposals to the KBCS-98 Secretariat.

Message 2: Call for Genetic Programming Book Proposals

From: John R. Koza <kozaCS.Stanford.EDU>
Subject: Call for Genetic Programming Book Proposals

Call for Book Proposals for Kluwer Book Series on Genetic Programming

Kluwer Academic Publishers
Announces the
GENETIC PROGRAMMING
Book Series

Genetic programming is a technique for automatically synthesizing
computer programs to solve problems.

The Kluwer book series on genetic programming will cover applications
of genetic programming, theoretical foundations of genetic
programming, technique extensions, and implementation issues. It be
the first collection of monographs, edited collections, and advanced
texts to cover this rapidly growing field. In order to publish
material that is timely and reflects the state of the art, the series
will focus on books of relatively narrow scope and moderate length and
will feature a rapid publication schedule. The first book of the
series, Langdon's Genetic Programming and Data Structures: Genetic
Programming + Data Structures = Automatic Programming! has already
been published. Topics may include, but are not limited to design,
control, classification, system identification, data mining, pattern
recognition and image analysis, data and image compression, evolvable
machine language, evolvable hardware, and automatic programming of
multi-agent and distributed systems.

Prospective Authors:

If you have an idea for a book which would fit in this series, we
would welcome the opportunity to review your proposal. Should you wish
to discuss any potential project further or receive specific
information regarding our book proposal requirements, please contact
either John Koza or Scott Delman. Pleas enclose a short biography with
your proposal.
