                                   CALL FOR PAPERS
                        Neural Information Processing Systems
                               -Natural and Synthetic-
                  Monday, November 29 - Thursday, December 2, 1993
                                  Denver, Colorado

          This is the seventh meeting of an  inter-disciplinary  conference
          which brings together neuroscientists, engineers, computer scien-
          tists, cognitive scientists, physicists, and  mathematicians  in-
          terested  in  all  aspects  of neural processing and computation.
          There will be an afternoon of  tutorial  presentations  (Nov  29)
          preceding  the  regular session and two days of focused workshops
          will follow at a nearby ski area (Dec 3-4).

          Major categories and examples of subcategories for paper  submis-
          sions are the following:

          Neuroscience: Studies and Analyses of Neurobiological Systems,
          Inhibition  in  cortical circuits, Signals and noise in neural
          computation, Computational and Theoretical Neurobiology,  Neu-

          Theory:  Computational  Learning  Theory,  Complexity  Theory,

          Technical Program: Plenary, contributed and poster sessions  will
          be  held.   There will be no parallel sessions.  The full text of
          presented papers will be published.

          Submission Procedures:  Original research contributions are soli-
          cited,  and  will be carefully refereed.  Authors must submit six
          copies of both a 1000-word (or less) summary and six copies of  a
          separate  single-page  50-100 word abstract clearly stating their
          results postmarked by May 22, 1993 (express mail  is  not  neces-
          sary).  Accepted  abstracts  will  be published in the conference
          program.  Summaries are for program committee use only.   At  the
          bottom  of each abstract page and on the first summary page indi-
          cate preference for oral or poster presentation and  specify  one
          of  the  above  nine  broad  categories and, if appropriate, sub-
          categories (For  example:  Poster,  Applications-Expert  Systems;
          Oral,  Implementation-Analog  VLSI). Include addresses of all au-
          thors at the front of the summary and the abstract  and  indicate
          to  which  author correspondence should be addressed. Submissions
          will not be considered that lack category  information,  separate
          abstract  sheets,  the  required six copies, author addresses, or
          are late.
