First' announcement and call for submissions:

			________________________
			NEURAL COMPUTING SURVEYS 
			------------------------

     		      A refereed electronic journal 
		     published on the World Wide Web
 
		http://www.icsi.berkeley.edu/~jagota/NCS

				MISSION 

One way to cope with the exponential increase in the number of articles 
published in recent years is to ignore most of them. A second, perhaps 
more satisfying, approach is to provide a forum that encourages the 
regular production -- and perusal -- of high-quality survey articles. 
This is especially useful in an inter-disciplinary, evolving field such 
as Neural Computing.

This journal aims to bring the second approach to bear. It is intended to

  + encourage researchers to write good survey papers. 

  + provides an efficiently searchable repository -- perhaps the first 
    that comes to mind -- for researchers to look at in times of need.

			    TOPICS COVERED 

All aspects of Neural Computing. See the web site for details.

		      FEATURES AT A GLANCE

	Survey-only	Postscript & Hypertext 	Attachments allowed 
	Peer-reviewed	No length restrictions	No delays upon acceptance 
	Free

		      FORMS & ATTACHMENTS

Survey papers may take the form of an ESSAY or a COMPENDIUM. ATTACHMENTS to 
an accepted paper -- optional to the authors -- allow use of the 
capabilities of the web to connect to several kinds of material closely 
related to the original paper. A clear separation is made between 
attachments (which are unrefereed and changable) and the main paper (which 
is refereed and not changable). See the web site for more details.

			HOW TO SUBMIT

Electronic submissions (in postscript format) are strongly encouraged, to 
any one of the editors based on matching area (see web site for listing of 
areas of editors). A Latex style file will be available for the NCS format. 
See the web site for details.

			PRINT VERSION

A print version, published by some well-known publisher as a "backup" to the 
electronic version, is being strongly considered.

			FTP ACCESS

Those without convenient access to the World Wide Web might use anonymous 
ftp as follows (see the README file there):

	ftp://ftp.icsi.berkeley.edu/pub/ai/jagota
