Subject:  CFP: TAI '94 Special Track on AI Languages, Software Engineering, and Object-Oriented Systems
Date:     9 Mar 1994 11:38:29 -0600

This year, the 6th IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial
Intelligence (TAI '94) will have a special track in the area of AI Languages,
Software Engineering, and Object-Oriented Systems. You are invited to submit
a paper on any of these areas to the general program chairman for consideration
by the track. Detailed information on the entire conference is included in the
general Call For Papers below. If you have any questions about the track,
please do not hesitate to contact me. I also welcome advance notice of intent
to submit and volunteers for serving as a track referee.

                           CALL FOR PAPERS

6th IEEE International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence

                          November 6-9, 1994
                        Hotel Intercontinental
                        New Orleans, Louisiana

This conference is envisioned to foster the transfer of ideas relating
to  artificial  intelligence  among academics, industry, and goverment
agencies.  It focuses on methodologies which can aid  the  development
of  AI,  as  well  as  the  demanding issues involved in turning these
methodologies to practical tools.  Thus, this  conference  encompasses
the  technical  aspects  of  specifying,  developing,  and  evaluating
theoretical and applied  mechanisms  which  can  serve  as  tools  for
developing  intelligent  systems  and pursuing artificial intelligence
applications.  Focal topics of interest include, but are  not  limited
to, the following:

* Machine Learning, Computational Learning
* Artificial Neural Networks
* Uncertainty Management, Fuzzy Logic
* Distributed and Cooperative AI, Information Agents
* Knowledge Based Systems, Intelligent Data Bases
* Intelligent Strategies for Scheduling and Planning
* AI Algorithms, Genetic Algorithms
* Expert Systems
* Natural Language Processing
* AI Applications (Vision, Robotics, Signal Processing, etc.)
* Information Modeling, Reasoning Techniques
* AI Languages, Software Engineering, Object-Oriented Systems
* Logic and Constraint Programming
* Strategies for AI development
* AI tools for Biotechnology


There will be both academic and industry tracks.  A one  day  workshop
(November  6th)  precedes  the  conference (November 7-9). Authors are
requested to submit original papers to the program chair by  April 20,
1994.   Five  copies  (in  English)  of double-spaced typed manuscript
(maximum of 25 pages) with an abstract are required.  Please attach  a
cover  letter  indicating the conference track (academic/industry) and
areas (in order of preference) most relevant to  the  paper.   Include
the  contact  author's  postal  address, e-mail address, and telephone
number.  Submissions in other audio-visual forms are  acceptable  only
for  the industry track, but they must focus on methodology and timely
results on AI technological applications and problems.   Authors  will
be  notified of acceptance by July 15, 1994 and will be given instruc-
tions for camera ready papers at that time.  The deadline  for  camera
ready papers will be August 19, 1994.  Outstanding papers will be eli-
gible for publication  in  the  International  Journal  on  Artificial
Intelligence Tools.

Submit papers and panel proposals by April 20,  1994  to  the  Program
