            First announcement and call for papers
            ______________________________________



Invitation and Scope of the conference
______________________________________

  In 1995, the third European Symposium on Artificial Neural Networks
  will be organized in Brussels, Belgium.  The two first successful
  editions each gathered about 100 scientists, coming from Western
  and Eastern Europe, but also from USA, Japan, Australia, New
  Zealand,...

  The field of Artificial Neural Networks includes a lot of different
  disciplines, from mathematics and statistics to robotics and
  electronics.  For this reason, actual studies concern various
  aspects of the field, sometimes to the detriment of strong, well
  established foundations for these researches; it is obvious that a
  better knowledge of the basic aspects of neurocomputing, and more
  effective comparisons with other computing methods are strongly
  necessary for a profitable long-term use of  neural networks in
  applications.

  The purpose of the ESANN conferences is to present the latest
  results in the fundamental aspects of artificial neural networks.
  Invited and survey talks will also present a comprehensive view of
  particular topics of the conference.  The program committee of
  ESANN'95 welcomes papers covering new results or being of tutorial
  nature, and dealing with theoretical, biological or mathematical
  aspects of artificial neural networks, or with the relations
  between neural networks and other fields.  The following is a
  non-exhaustive list of topics which will be covered during 
  ESANN'95 :

      + theory
      + models and architectures
      + mathematics
      + learning algorithms
      + biologically plausible artificial networks
      + formal models of biological phenomena
      + neurobiological systems
      + approximation of functions
      + adaptive behavior
      + signal processing
      + statistics
      + self-organization
      + evolutive learning
      

  Invited talks will be given by H.P. Mallot (Max-Planck-Institut fur
  Biologische Kybernetik, Tbingen, Germany), and by P. Comon
  (Thomson-Sintra Sophia Antipolis, France).  Other invited talks are
  to be announced.

  The conference will be held in the center of Brussels, the capital
  of Belgium.  Close to most great European cities, Brussels is
  exceptionally well served by closely-knit motorway and railway
  systems, and an international airport.  Besides an artistic and
  cultural center of attraction, Brussels is also renowned for its
  countless typical cafs, for its famous and typical Belgian food,
  and for its considerable night life.


Call for contributions
______________________

  Prospective authors are invited to submit six originals of their
  contribution before November 29, 1994.  Working language of the
  conference (including proceedings) is English.

  Papers should not exceed six A4 pages (including figures and
  references).  Printing area will be 12.2 x 19.3 cm (centered on the
  A4 page); left, right, top and bottom margins will thus
  respectively be 4.4, 4.4, 5.2 and 5.2 cm. 10-point Times font will
  be used for the main text; headings will be in bold characters (but
  not underlined), and will be separated from the main text by two
  blank lines before and one after.  Manuscripts prepared in this
  format will be reproduced in the same size in the book. 

  Originals of the figures will be pasted into the manuscript and
  centered between the margins.  The lettering of the figures should
  be in 10-point Times font size.  Figures should be numbered.  The
  legends also should be centered between the margins and be written
  in 9-point Times font size as follows:  Fig. 3. Text follows ...

  The pages of the manuscript will not be numbered (numbering decided
  by the editor).

  AUTHORS ARE STRONGLY INVITED TO ASK FOR THE FULL INSTRUCTIONS
  FOR AUTHORS (see coordinates below).

  A separate page (not included in the manuscript) will indicate:
    + the title of the manuscript + author(s) name(s) 
    + the complete address (including phone & fax numbers and
       E-mail) of the corresponding author 
    + a list of five keywords or topics 
  On the same page, the authors will copy and sign the following
  paragraph:
  "in case of acceptation of the paper for presentation at ESANN 95:
     - at least one of the authors will register to the conference
       and will present the paper 
     - the author(s) give their rights up over the paper to the
       organizers of ESANN 95, for the proceedings and any
       publication that could directly be generated by the conference
     - if the paper does not match the format requirements for
       the proceedings, the author(s) will send a revised version
       within two weeks of the notification of acceptation."

  Contributions must be sent to the conference secretariat.  Examples
  of camera-ready contributions can be obtained by writing to the
  same address.
