                   15th Annual International Conference
             IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society
                    San Diego, CA, October 28-31, 1993


                 ACTIVITIES ON NEURAL NETWORKS


1. Special IFAC Sessions: Frontiers in Neural Network Control
   ----------------------------------------------------------

Two special sessions sponsored by the International Federation of Automatic
Control will address emerging control systems and signal processing
principles, algorithms and applications that are inspired by biological
and artificial neural networks. Examples of engineering design strategies
with brain-like capabilities will be discussed. Application areas include
adaptive control, system identification, connectionist neural networks,
reinforcement learning, brain models and pattern recognition.
Speakers: Dr. Paul Werbos (NSF/USA), Dr. James Albus (National Institute
of Standards and Technology, USA)), Dr. K.S. Narendra (Yale University, USA),
Dr. Renato M.E. Sabbatini (State University of Campinas, Brazil) and
Dr. Chi-Sang Poon (MIT/USA).

2. Workshop on Neural Networks in Biomedical Engineering
   -----------------------------------------------------

This workshop (Oct. 27, 9:00-17:00) will address the roles of neural networks
in biomedical engineering. Topics covered will include the use of neural
networks in signal analysis (Dr. Evangelia Micheli-Tzanakou, Rutgers Univ.),
the relations between Volterra expansions and neural networks (Dr. V.Z.
Marmarelis, Univ. Southern California), the use of neural networks in
medical diagnosis (Dr. C.N. Schizas, Univ. Cyprus) and the implications of
processing in the brain for artificial neural networks (Dr. Stuart R.
Hameroff, Univ. Arizona).


3. Technical Sessions
   ------------------

Papers on neural networks will be presented in seven technical sessions
(Neural Networks I-VII) with oral presentations and one session with
poster presentations. All sessions will be 90 minutes long.

Venue
-----

ITT Sheraton Harbor Island Hotel

Proceedings
-----------

The conference proceedings (more than 2200 papers) will be available in
paper form and in a CD-ROM with retrieval software (IEEE Press).
