Hi! Just a note to encourage auditory research submissions to NIPS this year -- the Neural Information Processing Systems meeting, in Denver in November/December (with a post-conference workshop at Vail). NIPS has single-track format, but is very multi-disciplinary nature; the result is three or four papers representing different disciplines in science and engineering, presented to appeal to a general audience. The quality of posters and presentations is pretty high; only ~5% of the submissions become talks, and about ~20% of the submissions become posters. Dick Duda gave a talk at NIPS last year on auditory scene analysis that was well received; in addition to scene analysis, neuroscience and cognitive science auditory research have also been well received at past NIPS. The Call For Papers below has more details -- hope to see you at NIPS! --john lazzaro area chair (implementations) NIPS 94 ********* PLEASE NOTE NEW SUBMISSIONS FORMAT FOR 1994 ********* CALL FOR PAPERS Neural Information Processing Systems -Natural and Synthetic- Monday, November 28 - Saturday, December 3, 1994 Denver, Colorado This is the eighth meeting of an interdisciplinary conference which brings together neuroscientists, engineers, computer scientists, cognitive scientists, physicists, and mathematicians interested in all aspects of neural processing and computation. The conference will include invited talks, and oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. There will be no parallel sessions. There will also be one day of tutorial presentations (Nov 28) preceding the regular session, and two days of focused workshops will follow at a nearby ski area (Dec 2-3). Major categories for paper submission, and examples of keywords within categories, are the following: Neuroscience: systems physiology, cellular physiology, signal and noise analysis, oscillations, synchronization, inhibition, neuromodulation, synaptic plasticity, computational models. Theory: computational learning theory, complexity theory, dynamical systems, statistical mechanics, probability and statistics, approximation theory. Implementations: VLSI, optical, parallel processors, software simulators, implementation languages. Algorithms and Architectures: learning algorithms, constructive/pruning algorithms, localized basis functions, decision trees, recurrent networks, genetic algorithms, combinatorial optimization, performance comparisons. Visual Processing: image recognition, coding and classification, stereopsis, motion detection, visual psychophysics. Speech, Handwriting and Signal Processing: speech recognition, coding and synthesis, handwriting recognition, adaptive equalization, nonlinear noise removal. Applications: time-series prediction, medical diagnosis, financial analysis, DNA/protein sequence analysis, music processing, expert systems. Cognitive Science & AI: natural language, human learning and memory, perception and psychophysics, symbolic reasoning. Control, Navigation, and Planning: robotic motor control, process control, navigation, path planning, exploration, dynamic programming. Review Criteria: All submitted papers will be thoroughly refereed on the basis of technical quality, novelty, significance and clarity. Submissions should contain new results that have not been published previously. Authors are encouraged to submit their most recent work, as there will be an opportunity after the meeting to revise accepted manuscripts before submitting final camera-ready copy. ********** PLEASE NOTE NEW SUBMISSIONS FORMAT FOR 1994 ********** Paper Format: Submitted papers may be up to eight pages in length. The page limit will be strictly enforced, and any submission exceeding eight pages will not be considered. Authors are encouraged (but not required) to use the NIPS style files obtainable by anonymous FTP at the sites given below. Papers must include physical and e-mail addresses of all authors, and must indicate one of the nine major categories listed above, keyword information if appropriate, and preference for oral or poster presentation. Unless otherwise indicated, correspondence will be sent to the first author. Submission Instructions: Send six copies of submitted papers to the address given below; electronic or FAX submission is not acceptable. Include one additional copy of the abstract only, to be used for preparation of the abstracts booklet distributed at the meeting. Submissions mailed first-class within the US or Canada must be postmarked by May 21, 1994. Submissions from other places must be received by this date.
