            Marseilles, France,    March 12-13-14, 1997

A forum for real world applications of artificial neural networks.

A unique opportunity to share know-how and expertise between research and
Understanding why, how and when artificial neural networks are worth using.
Understanding the structure of multidimensional data.
What is the basic knowledge for artificial neural networks applications.
How to compare  neural networks and statistical tools and how to combine
 them for difficult problems.

All the kinds of questions that will be addressed in the NEURAP'97 forum.

1997's main topic

To ensure a lively conference, all papers will be presented in plenary
session (short presentations) and also through posters. However, to
garantee the high quality of the presented works, the selection is based on
full paper proposals. Depending on the maturity of the work presented,
there will be short papers for on-going research of 4 pages long, and long
papers for mature research results, up to 8 pages. All papers will be
printed in full in the proceedings and must be in English.

Deadlines and requirements

Submissions are full length paper, not exceeding either four or eight A4 pages,
double columns, 10-point font size. Please send 4 copies to the conference
