First Call for Papers
International Congress on
INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS AND APPLICATIONS (ISA'2000)
to be held at the University of Wollongong
(near Sydney), Australia
from December 12-15, 2000
http://www.icsc.ab.ca/isa2000.htm

The ISA’2000 Congress aims to provide researchers and
practitioners from academia and industry with a forum
to report on the latest developments in intelligent
systems and their applications within the four major
areas of computational intelligence, interactive and
collaborative computing, industrial systems, and
biologically inspired systems. The Congress will also
provide a unique opportunity for dialogue and synergy
between scientists and engineers from different
backgrounds with the common interest in intelligent
systems.

The congress consists of the following four Symposia:

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM
ISA'2000 will include invited plenary talks, contributed
sessions, invited sessions, workshops and tutorials.


CALL FOR INVITED SESSIONS
The organization of invited sessions is encouraged. Prospective
organizers are requested to send a session proposal (consisting
of 4-5 invited papers, the recommended session-chair and
co-chair, as well as a short statement describing the title and
the purpose of the session) to the respective symposium chair
or the congress organizer. Invited sessions should preferably
start with a tutorial paper. The registration fee of the session
organizer will be waived, if at least 4 authors of invited
papers register to the conference.


POSTER PRESENTATIONS
Poster presentations are encouraged for people who wish to
receive peer feedback, and practical examples of applied research
are particularly welcome. Poster sessions will allow the
presentation and discussion of respective papers, which will
also be included in the conference proceedings.


CALL FOR WORKSHOPS, TUTORIALS AND OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS
Several workshops/tutorials are planned for ISA'2000. Each
workshop/tutorial will focus on a particular topic, and consist
of several presentations and open discussions. The proposal for
a workshop/tutorial should include the title, topics covered,
proposed speakers, targeted audiences, and estimated length
(hours) of the workshop/tutorial. The proposal should be
submitted either to the congress chair, the corresponding
symposium chair or the congress organizer by March 31, 2000.


SUBMISSION OF PAPERS
Prospective authors are requested to either send a draft paper
(maximum 7 pages) or an extended abstract for review by the
International Program Committee. All submissions must be
written in English, starting with a succinct statement of the
problem, the results achieved, their significance and a
comparison with previous work.

Submissions must be received by March 31, 2000.

The submission should also include
- Title of symposium (CI'2000, ICC'2000, IS'2000, BIS'2000)
- Type of paper (regular, poster, tutorial or invited)
- Authors names, affiliations, addresses
- Name of author to contact for correspondence
