The Second BISC-SIG-ES'98 International Workshop (The First
International workshop on Soft Computing and Emerging Technology
(SET'98) and The Second International workshop on Soft Computing and
Earth Sciences
(SC&ES'98)), a constituent of the Fourth Joint Conference on Information
Sciences (JCIS'98), is an international forum for scientists,
researchers, engineers, and developers in computer, information
sciences, Earth Sciences and Chemical Engineering to present and discuss
recent developments and
emerging technologies.

Sponsor: BISC Special Interest Group in Earth Sciences (BISC-SIG-ES)

BISC Special Interest Group in Earth Sciences (BISC-EIG-ES) was formed
by BISC of University of California at Berkeley and Earth Sciences
Division of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to promote rapid
development of
new technologies in Soft Computing.

proposed topic and the number of anticipated participants you wish to
invite. All accepted summaries will appear in the Proceedings. Long
papers may also be submitted (at the conference) for review to
Information
Sciences, an International Journal (Elsevier) and/or special-edition
books. Send submissions/proposals/inquiries to:

Deadline for approximately one page abstract is May 1, 1998.

Deadline for both summaries and session proposals is June 1, 1998.

Paper acceptance notifications will be sent by Aug. 1, 1998.

Summaries should not exceed 4 pages of 10pt, double-column,
single-spaced text, including tables/figures.

There is a charge of $100/page for additional pages to be published in
the Proceedings.
