CALL FOR PAPERS

August 8-9, 1996 Holiday Inn Dayton (Fairborn), Ohio

The objective of the ADPC is to bring together researchers and
practioners in the area of adaptive computing, while encompassing:
neural networks, fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms,
evolutionary programming, adaptive reasoning systems,
as applied to beneficial and productive
scientific and engineering endeavors.

Topics of Interest

Innovative theoretical investigations and applications of
various adaptive Artificial Intelligence methods and technologies are
all of interest, but the focus of the Symposium is on those activities
which seem to have potential for major beneficial impact in dealing
with significant problems of society. Application areas include the
fields of Engineering and Science, Design, Fabrication, Materials,
Medicine, Health-care, and Business.
Although interest is by no means limited to the following
topics, these are timely and of special interest:

Theory

Algorithms & System Architectures for Distributed Parallel
Computing, Self-Organization of Distributed Data, Intelligent Search of
Massive Data.

Applications

Control, Optimization, Discovery, Manufacturing, Automation,
Environment, Medicine, Biomedical, Engineering, and Business.

Submission of Paper

To submit a regular paper for presentation at the Symposium,
send a 500-word abstract before February 16, 1996.
Authors will be notified of the status of their submission
by April 15, 1996.

Centered at the top of the first page should be the
COMPLETE TITLE, AUTHOR NAME(S), PHONE AND FAX NUMBERS,
AND POSTAL AND ELECTRONIC MAILING ADDRESSES if any.

Abstracts can be submitted by mail, email, or faxt to the Conference
