ISAS 2001 -  International Symposium on Adaptive Systems     
                  "Evolutionary Computation and Probabilistic Graphical Models" 
                   Hotel Palco and Havana Convention Center, Cuba
                   March  19-23, 2001 

         Special one day session on Adaptation and Bioinformatics.
         Call for tutorials and/or large key talks (1 - 1.5 hours)
         Extension of the deadline until January 15.   

 1- Extension of deadline.

    The Organizing Committee of ISAS 2001 has decided to extend the deadline for 
    presentation of papers until January 15. Please visit our web page for details.


 2- One day Special Session on Adaptation and Bioinformatics.

    The ISAS 2001 conference will explore recent issues on the convergence of Adaptive Systems  and Bioinformatics.The aim of the session is the discussion of works in this new field of research and applications.

    Contributions will be welcomed that address the cross-fertilization between the fields of Artificial Adaptive Systems, and the research on molecular biology, genetics, neural systems, population dynamics and in general natural inspired research.

    The works will be published in the ISAS2001 conference's proceedings. We also call for presentation of tutorials or large key talks in this field. At this moment we already have the following tutorials:

    1- Prospect and  problems in Bioinformatics
       Selfish is not enough a model of organism is missing.
       Dr. Heinz Muehlenbein. (Germany).

    2- Spiking Neural Models  (to be confirmed).
       Dr. Hans Bothe  (DenMark)

 3- Call for Tutorials and/or large talks.

    The organizing committee of ISAS2001 call for the presentation of tutorials and/or large talks (1 - 1.5 hours) in anyone of the topics of the conference  (see isas2001.tripod.com/symp).   

    We already have the following talks: 
    1-Future Trends of Evolutionary Computing  
      Dr. Heinz Muehlenbein. National Research Center for Information Technology (Germany)  

    2- Numerical Tight Bounds for Continuous Functions Over Polyhedron Domains: A Tutorial 
      Dr. Hossein Arsham, University of Baltimore (USA)

    3- Evolutionary Design of Hybrid Systems - Reviews and Prospects for Industrial Applications.
       Dr. Ajith Abraham. Monash University. (Australia)
    4- Optimization and Machine Learning with Estimation Distribution Algorithnms
       Dr. Pedro Larrannaga. University of the Basque Country. (Spain) 

    The deadline for presentation of tutorials is January 10.
    Speakers can present a written version of their talks for publication in the proceedings. (although it is not mandatory).  
    They should use the same format of regular papers, but a maximum of 15 pages is allowed.
