                        CALL FOR PAPERS FOR DYNN'96


                        International workshop on

            NEURAL NETWORKS DYNAMICS AND PATTERN RECOGNITION.

                           Toulouse - France   =20

                        12 and 13 of March 1996



Organized by ONERA-CERT

Sponsored by DRET of French MOD, US Air Force Scientific Research=
 and Pole
Universitaire Europeen de Toulouse.

Organizers:  Manuel SAMUELIDES (ONERA-CERT), Bernard DOYON (INSERM),
Gregory TARR (US AF), Simon THORPE (CNRS).

Practical Information: Emmanuel DAUCE (dauce at cert.fr)

OBJECTIVES OF THE WORKSHOP.
***************************

This workshop is designed to allow information exchange and discussion
between theoretical scientists working on models of neuronal dynamics=
 and
engineersnners who are looking for efficient devices to process sensor
information.

Continuous activation state units as well as Integrate and Fire neurons=
=20
or oscillators are elementary components of Dynamical Neural Networks.
Attractor neural networks as well as transitory data-driven dynamics=
 will
be considered. The common features between these models is the conversion
of spatial information into spatio-temporal data flow which allows=
 specific
processing.

Mathematical models involved use dynamical systems and stochastic=
 processes.
They will be compared to the results of numerical simulations and=
 the latest
neuro-physiological data concerning the dynamics of biological neural=
 nets.

The main aim of the workshop is to encourage significant advances=
 concerning
the dynamics of biologically plausible neural networks and their=
 applications
to pattern recognition.
                       ***********************
