                              CALL FOR PAPERS

               NEURAL NETWORKS FOR AUTOMATIC TARGET RECOGNITION
                              MAY 11--13, 1990

Sponsored by the Center for Adaptive Systems,
the Graduate Program in Cognitive and Neural Systems,
and the Wang Institute of Boston University
with partial support from 
The Air Force Office of Scientific Research


This research conference at the cutting edge of neural network science and
technology will bring together leading experts in academe, government, and
industry to present their latest results on automatic target recognition
in invited lectures and contributed posters. Automatic target recognition is 
a key process in systems designed for vision and image processing, speech and 
time series prediction, adaptive pattern recognition, and adaptive sensory-
motor control and robotics. Invited lecturers include:

JOE BROWN, Martin Marietta; GAIL CARPENTER, Boston Univ.;
NABIL FARHAT, Univ. Pennsylvania; STEPHEN GROSSBERG, Boston Univ.; 
ROBERT HECHT-NIELSEN, HNC; KEN JOHNSON, Hughes Aircraft; 
PAUL KOLODZY, MIT Lincoln Lab; MICHAEL KUPERSTEIN, Neurogen; 
YANN LECUN, AT&T Bell Labs; CHRISTOPHER SCOFIELD, Nestor; 
STEVEN SIMMES, Science Applications International Co.; 
ALEX WAIBEL, Carnegie Mellon Univ.; ALLEN WAXMAN, MIT Lincoln Lab; 
FRED WEINGARD, Booz-Allen and Hamilton; BARBARA YOON, DARPA; 

CALL FOR PAPERS---ATR POSTER SESSION: A featured poster session on ATR
neural network research will be held on May 12, 1990. Attendees who wish to
present a poster should submit 3 copies of an extended abstract 
(1 single-spaced page), postmarked by March 1, 1990, for refereeing. Include
with the abstract the name, address, and telephone number of the corresponding
author. Mail to: ATR Poster Session, Neural Networks Conference, Wang
Institute of Boston University, 72 Tyng Road, Tyngsboro, MA 01879. Authors
