    The 2002 International Conference on Machine Learning and Applications
    will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, June 24-27, 2002.
    The aim of the conference is to bring researchers working in the areas
    of machine learning and applications together. The conference will
    cover both theoretical and experimental research results. Submission
    of papers describing machine learning applications in fields like
    medicine, biology, and industry is strongly encouraged.

    The ICMLA'02 will be held simultaneously (same location and dates)
    with the International Conference on Parallel and Distributed
    Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA), The International
    Conference on Imaging Science, Systems, and Technology (CISST),
    and other conferences and workshops (a link to ICMLA'02 web site
    will soon be available at: http://www.ashland.edu/~iajwa/conferences).

    You are invited to submit a paper (max 7 pages) and/or a proposal
    to organize a technical session (submission instructions below).
    All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceeding.

    THE NAMES OF TECHNICAL SESSION ORGANIZERS/CHAIRS WILL APPEAR AS
    ASSOCIATE EDITORS ON THE COVER OF THE CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS.

    SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

    Authors will need to submit three copies of their papers; max 7
    pages; single-spaced; standard font size (11 or 12) to M. A. Wani
    (see the address below). E-mail submissions are also acceptable.
    Papers must not have been previously published. The paper that
    is submitted to multiple conferences should clearly state this
    information. The first page of the paper should include:
      - title of the paper, names, email addresses, the affiliations
      - the postal address, telephone number, and fax number for
        the first or corresponding author only
      - abstract of maximum of 150 words
      - a list of max 5 keywords

    PROPOSAL FOR ORGANIZING TECHNICAL SESSIONS:

    Each technical session will have at least six paper presentations.
    The session chairs will be responsible for soliciting the papers,
    reviewing, and making final decisions, in consultation with
    conference co-chairs. The names of session chairs will appear as
    Associate Editors in the proceedings.

    Proposals to organize technical sessions should include the
    following information: name and address (including E-mail)
    of the proposer, title of a session, a 100-word description, and a
    short description on how the session will be advertised (in most
    cases, session proposers will solicit papers). Mail your
    proposal to M. A. Wani (address is given below); E-mail
    submissions are preferred.

    EVALUATION PROCESS:

    Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, and
    clarity. Each paper will be evaluated by two referees.

    PUBLICATION:

    The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA Press
    (ISBN), as a hardcopy. In addition, a CD version will also
    be available. The proceedings will be available at the
    conference.
    After the conference some papers will be considered for
    journal publication.

    ORGANIZERS/SPONSORS:

    A number of faculty members and their staff in cooperation
    with the Monte Carlo Resort (Conference Division, Las
    Vegas) will be organizing the conference. The conference
    will be sponsored by World Academy of Sciences and co-sponsored
    by Computer Science Research, Education, & Applications Press
    (CSREA: USA Federal EIN # 58-2171953) along with other research

    LOCATION OF THE ICMLA'02 CONFERENCE:

    The conference will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort hotel,
    Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The Monte Carlo Resort is a mega hotel
    with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms.
    The hotel is only a few minutes from the Las Vegas airport with
    24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport. This hotel has
    many vacation and recreational attractions, including: waterfalls,
    casino, spa, pools & kiddie pools, sunning decks, Easy River water
    ride, wave pool with cascades, lighted tennis courts, healthspa
    (with workout equipment, whirlpool, sauna, ...), arcade virtual
    reality game rooms, nightly shows, snack bars, a number of
    restaurants, shopping area, bars, ... Many of these attractions
    are open 24 hours a day and most are suitable for families and
    children. The negotiated hotel's room rate for conference
    attendees is very reasonable (79USD + tax) per night (no extra
    charge for double occupancy) for the duration of the conference.

    The hotel is within walking distance from most Las Vegas
    attractions (major shopping areas, recreational destinations, fine
    dining and night clubs, free street shows, ...).
    Las Vegas is only a few hours away from cities like Los Angeles,
    San Diego, Phoenix, and the Grand Canyon.

    EXHIBITION:

    An exhibition is planned for the duration of the conference. We
    have reserved 20+ exhibit spaces. Interested parties should
    contact H. R. Arabnia (address is given below). All exhibitors will

    OTHER INFORMATION:

    It is planned to add other related conferences, symposiums,
    and workshops to be held simultaneously (same location
    and dates) creating an international multiconference in computer
    science. Each conference will have it's own proceedings and
    technical/research sessions. Contact H. R. Arabnia
    (hra@cs.uga.edu) if you are interested in organizing a conference,
    symposium, or a workshop. (The 2001 International Multiconference
