                         ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

                              Data Mining Session

         Eleventh International Conference on Mathematical and Computer
                       Modelling and Scientific Computing

                            March 31 - April 3, 1997
                    Georgetown University Conference Center
                              Washington, DC, USA 

        The Eleventh International Conference on Mathematical and Computer
Modelling and Scientific Computing is scheduled to take place March 31-April
3, 1997 at the Georgetown University Conference Center, Washington, DC,
U.S.A. Plenary lectures by world-renowned scientists and technical sessions
on many recent developments in engineering and sciences comprise a
long-standing tradition at the ICMCM's. Mathematical and computer modelling
and scientific computing have become powerful tools for solving complex
problems and providing greater insights into the future. The objective of
the conference is to bring together researchers from various disciplines
including the traditional and emerging areas of engineering and sciences for
cross-fertilization of ideas and exchange of information. In view of the
phenomenal growth in mathematical modelling activities and computational
technologies, we can bring about further developments by focusing on the
issues of mutual concern and through exchange of ideas. 

The objective of the Data Mining session is to explore technologies
related to the discovery of information in complex data sets. The session 
promotes the exchange of ideas between diverse fields, such as bioinformatics,
financial and pharmaceutical research, and the application of graphics, 
statistical and artificial intelligence based systems.
Speakers of the session include:

Hwa A. Lim - Pangea Systems Inc. 
Juli Nash - Silicon Graphics, Inc. 
John Haws - First Commerce Corporation
TBA - Eli Lilly and Company

Papers will be chosen on the basis of one-page (about 200-250 words)
abstracts clearly defining the work and its conclusions. Abstracts may be
submitted in hard copy or via fax or by e-mail. The abstracts must be
formatted to fit on 8-1/2 x 11 inch (approximately 21.5 cm x 28 cm or
European Standard A-4 size) paper, typed in single space. The paper title
must be capitalized and centered followed by author's name(s), institution,
and full address. Send two copies (one copy if sent by fax or e-mail) of
abstract and technical inquiries to:

                Notification of acceptance: December 27, 1996

        Full length manuscripts (limited to six pages) of papers presented
at the conference will be published in the Conference Proceedings which will
be brought out as a special issue of the journal MATHEMATICAL MODELLING AND
SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING, Vol. 8, 1997 (ISSN 1067-0688). The manuscripts for the
special issue are due June 15, 1997. The special issue of the journal will
be published by September 1997.

        The 11th ICMCM & SC is co-chaired by Prof. Anil Nerode, Director,
Mathematical Sciences Institute, Cornell University and Prof. Xavier J. R.
Avula, Founder, ICMCM's, University of Missouri-Rolla.
