| ICANN'94 (INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ARTIFICIAL NEURAL NETWORKS)|
| is the fourth Annual Conference of ENNS and it comes after |
| ICANN'91(Helsinki), ICANN'92 (Brighton), ICANN'93 (Amsterdam). |
| It is co-sponsored by INNS, IEEE-NC, JNNS. |
| It will take place at the Sorrento Congress Center, near Naples, |
| Italy, on May 26-29, 1994. |

| Interested authors are cordially invited to present their work |
| in one of the following "Scientific Areas" (A-Cognitive Science; |
| B-Mathematical Models; C- Neurobiology; D-Fuzzy Systems; |
| E-Neurocomputing), indicating also an "Application domain" |
| (1-Motor Control;2-Speech;3-Vision;4-Natural Language; |
| 5-Process Control;6-Robotics;7-Signal Processing; |
| 8-Pattern Recognition;9-Hybrid Systems;10-Implementation). |
| |
| DEADLINE for CAMERA-READY COPIES: December 15, 1993. |
| ---------------------------------------------------- |
| Papers received after that date will be returned unopened. |
| Papers will be reviewed by senior researchers in the field |
| and the authors will be informed of their decision by the end |
| of January 1994. Accepted papers will be included in the |
| Proceedings only if the authors have registered in advance. |
| Allocation of accepted papers to oral or poster sessions will |
| not be performed as a function of technical merit but only with |
| the aim of coherently clustering different contributions in |
| related topics; for this reason there will be no overlap of |
| oral and poster sessions with the same denomination. Conference |
| proceedings, that include all the accepted (and regularly |
| registered) papers, will be distributed at the Conference desk |
| to all regular registrants. |
| |
| SIZE: 4 pages, including figures, tables, and references. |
| LANGUAGE: English. |
| COPIES: submit a camera-ready original and 3 copies. |
| (Accepted papers cannot be edited.) |
| ADDRESS where to send the papers: |
| IIASS (Intl. Inst. Adv. Sci. Studies), ICANN'94, |
| Via Pellegrino 19, Vietri sul Mare (Salerno), 84019 Italy. |
| ADDRESS where to send correspondence (not papers): |

| |
| In an accompanying letter, the following should be included: |
| (i) title of the paper, (ii) corresponding author, |
| (iii) presenting author, (iv) scientific area and application |
| domain (e.g. "B-7"), (vi) preferred presentation (oral/poster), |
| (vii) audio-visual requirements. |

| The 4 pages of the manuscripts should be prepared on A4 white |
| paper with a typewriter or letter- quality printer in |
| one-column format, single-spaced, justified on both sides and |
| printed on one side of the page only, without page numbers |
| or headers/footers. Printing area: 120 mm x 195 mm. |
| |
| Authors are encouraged to use LaTeX. For LaTeX users, the LaTeX |
| style-file and an example-file can be obtained via email as |
| follows: |
| - send an email message to the address "listserv@dist.unige.it" |
| - the first two lines of the message must be: |
| get ICANN94 icann94.sty |
| get ICANN94 icann94-example.tex |
| If problems arise, please contact the conference co-chair below. |
| Non LaTeX users can ask for a specimen of the paper layout, |
| to be sent via fax. |
