First' announcement and call for submissions:
NEURAL COMPUTING SURVEYS
A refereed electronic journal
published on the World Wide Web
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.
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
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.
A print version, published by some well-known publisher as a "backup" to the
electronic version, is being strongly considered.
Those without convenient access to the World Wide Web might use anonymous
ftp as follows (see the README file there):
