>Methodologies, Neural Modeling and Bio-inspired Applications

>IWANN 99. The fifth International Work-Conference on Artificial and
>Natural Neural Networks, will take place in Alicante (Spain) June
>2-4, 1999. This biennial meeting with focus on the interplay between
>neuroscience and computation, without disciplinary boundaries, was
>first held in Granada (1991), and subsequently in Sitges, Barcelona
>(1993), Torremolinos, Malaga (1995) and Lanzarote, Canary Islands
>(1997) with a growing number of participants from more than 20
>countries and with high quality papers published by Springer-Verlag
>(LNCS 540, 686, 930 and 1240).
>Under the basic idea that living beings and machines can be
>the same experimental methodology and the same theoretical and formal
>the interdisciplinary team of the IWANN 99 program committee
>recognizes as global goals the following:
>I. Developments on Foundations and Methodology.
>II. From artificial to natural: How can help the Systems theory, the
>Electronics and the Computation (including AI) to the understanding
>of Nervous System?.  As a science of analysis, neural computation
>seeks to
>neurology, brain theory, and cognitive psychology in the
>understanding of
>functioning of the Nervous System by means of computational models of
>neurons, neural nets and subcellular processes.
>III. From Natural to Artificial: How can help the understanding of
>Nervous System to obtain bio-inspired models of artificial neurons,
>evolutionary architectures, and learning algorithms of value in
>computation and engineering?.  As engineering, neural computation
>seeks to complement the symbolic perspective of Artificial
>Intelligence (AI), using these biologically inspired models of
>neurons and nets to solve those non-algorithmic problems of function
>approximation and pattern
>having to do with changing and only partially known environments.
>IV. Bio-inspired Technology and Engineering Applications: How can we
>obtain bio-inspired formulations for sensory coding, perception,
>memory, decision making, planning, and control?.  The essential aim
>of this perspective is
>reduce the distance between the biological and artificial
>perspectives of neural computation. Contributions on the following
>and related topics are welcome.
>1. Foundations of Computational Neuroscience: Brain Organization
>2. Neural Modeling: Biophysical and Structural Models
>3. Plasticity Phenomena (Maturing, Learning and Memory)
>4. Complex Systems Dynamics
>5. Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Neuroscience
>6. Artificial Neural Nets Simulation, Implementation, and Evaluation
>7. Methodology for Nets Design
>8. Bio-inspired Systems and Engineering
>9. Other applications
>The Program Committee is soliciting proposals for invited sessions in
>the above theme areas or related to the previous global goals.
>Prospective organizers should contact the General Chairman J. Mira at
iwann99 at dia.uned.es
>as soon as possible. Information about current invited sessions and
>further details for prospective organizers can be found at our web
>The Programme Committee request original papers on the above
>mentioned Topics. Authors are invited to submit five copies of
>papers, written in English, of up to 10 pages, including figures,
>tables and references. The format should be A4 or 8  x 11 inch paper,
>in a Roman font, 12 point in
>with a printing area of 15.3 x 24.2 cm2 (6.0 x 9.5 sq.. inches).  If
>possible, please make use of the latex/plaintex style file available
>in our WWW site. In addiction, one sheet must be attached including:
>names, a list of five keywords, the topic under which the paper fits
>the best, the preferred presentation (oral or poster), and the
>corresponding author information (name, postal and e-mail address,
>phone and fax number).
>All received papers will be reviewed by the Programme Committee.
>Accepted papers may be presented orally or as poster panels, however
>all accepted contributions will be published at full length
>(Springer-Verlag Proceedings are expected, as usual).
>Contributions must be sent by surface mail to
>Prof. Jose  Mira Mira,
>at the address below before January 15, 1999.
