                         Accent on quality
                         -----------------

The papers will be ranked in terms of evidence of NOVELTY and reviewers will
be asked to select those that rank highest in their topic for oral presentation.
The quality of poster sessions will also be kept high and the value of person-
to-person communication (rather than addressing an audience) in specialist areas
will be borne in mind by reviewers. We expect to accept 80-100 papers for oral
presentation and 200+ for poster presentation.

Both orally presented papers and poster papers which are accepted by the
referees will need to be written up fully (5pp) for prepublication in the
proceedings (Artificial Neural Networks II), to be published by Elsevier. See
the various deadlines below.
