GENERAL INFORMATION  
1998 is the year of Science and Technology in South Africa. The 
intention of the Department of Arts, Culture, Science and Technology of 
SA is to make South Africans more aware of how Science and Technology 
affects them in every-day life. Such a national initiative is a very 
good environment for a conference like this: one that has a broad scope 
and spans many different fields. At the same time an opportunity is 
given to the research community of South Africa to interact more 
directly with overseas peers.   
_______________________________________________________________________

AIMS AND SCOPE  
The Conference is broad in scope and will provide a forum for the 
exchange of the latest research results as applied to different branches 
of science and technology. The areas of interest include concepts, 
techniques and paradigms associated with systems, signals, control 
and/or computers. Domains of application include informatics, bio-
medical technology, economics, management, diverse engineering and 
science fields and applied mathematics. 

Artificial intelligence techniques are of particular interest, as well
as reports on industrial applications.  

The conference will include several plenary and invited lectures from 
world renowned scientists, regular papers and posters. A number of 
special and invited sessions will also be organized, dealing with 
focused areas of interest. The proposals for these special sessions 
should be submitted at the same time as the abstracts. A special session 
cannot have less than three papers or more than six.  

The official language of the conference is English.
________________________________________________________________________

MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION - REVIEW PROCESS 
Three copies of the extended abstract having about two pages, should be 
sent to the Conference Office at the address provided. Alternatively 
they may be faxed (one copy). Full papers are preferred. Abstracts 
(papers) in Microsoft Word can be sent by e-mail. All submissions will 
be reviewed by members of the International Programme Committee; 
additional reviewers will be consulted if necessary. The submissions 
will be reviewed as soon as they arrive; the average review time is 
about four weeks. Authors of accepted papers will thereafter be informed 
(by e-mail if available) of the required format for camera-ready paper 
submissions. In order for reviewers to be able to assess the 
submissions, the extended abstract has to provide sufficient information 
about the background to the problem, the novelty of the obtained results 
and the results achieved, the conclusions drawn and some references. Up
to five keywords should be provided. All submitted papers have to be 
original, unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere.   
______________________________________________________________________

PROCEEDINGS 
All accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings, 
which will be issued by a renowned international publisher.

IMPORTANT NOTICE 
Although we expect that the authors of accepted papers will present the 
papers at this Conference, we recognize that circumstances may prevent 
authors from participation at the Conference. In such cases the accepted 
papers will be published if the authors inform organizers of their 
non-attendance at the Conference by 15th May 1998. However, conference 
fees according to established rules have to be pre-paid in order that 
papers appear in the Proceedings.   
________________________________________________________________________
