Official web site :
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.

June 24-27, 2002: ICMLA'02 International Conference
Proposals to organize technical sessions should be submitted as
soon as possible. All accepted papers must be presented at the
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.
Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, and
clarity. Each paper will be evaluated by two referees.
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
After the conference some papers will be considered for
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
centers (to be announced at a later time).
(Previous conferences' sponsors included: CSREA, the National
Supercomputing Center for Energy and the Environment - DOE,
The International Association for Mathematics and Computers in
Simulation, The International Technology Institute (ITI), The
Java High Performance Computing research group, World Scientific
and Engineering Society, Sundance Digitial Signal Processing
Inc., the Computer Vision Research and Applications Tech., ...)
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.
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
be considered to be the co-sponsors of the conference.
MEMBERS OF THE PROGRAM & ORGANIZING COMMITTEES:
The Program Committee is currently being formed. Those
interested in joining the Program Committee should email
the following information to M. A. Wani (see address below):
name, affiliation and position, complete mailing address, email
address, tel/fax numbers, a short biography together with
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
(email@example.com) if you are interested in organizing a conference,
symposium, or a workshop. (The 2001 International Multiconference
in Computer Science attracted over 1,400 participants from over
