CfP: Intl Conference on Neural Computation, Spain, DL 18.05.2010

ICNC 2010 (International Conference on Neural Computation) has an open call for papers, whose deadline is on May 18, 2010. We hope you can participate in this prestigious conference by submitting a paper reflecting your current research.

Organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC), ICNC 2010 will be held in Valencia, Spain, next October 24 - 26, and it aims at becoming a top reference for researchers and practitioners in its area (http://www.icnc.ijcci.org).

Neural computation and artificial neural networks have seen an explosion of interest over the last few years, and are being successfully applied across an extraordinary range of problem domains, in areas as diverse as finance, medicine, engineering, geology and physics, in problems of prediction, classification or control. Several
architectures, learning strategies and algorithms have been introduced in this highly dynamic field in the last couple of decades.

This meeting will take place yearly, bringing together top researchers and practitioners in study, analysis, design, modeling and implementation of neural computing, especially those related to ICNC main topic areas. The conference is co-located with two related conferences in a joint conference format, namely:
- Fuzzy Computation (http://www.icfc.ijcci.org/)
- Evolutionary Computation (http://www.icec.ijcci.org/)
Registration to one conference allows free access to all conferences.

Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a SCI Series book.
The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexes. We are awaiting confirmation of Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI.

Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session.

All published papers will be also available at the SciTePress' Digital Library, which will be made available shortly.

Should you have any question please don't hesitate contacting me.

The forum on Romani/Gypsy studies (FTF) invites all (junior) researchers and interested people, who have to do with Gypsy cultures, to some networking in Leipzig, April 23-25, 2010.

Interdisciplinary exchange and networking between researchers, who deal with gypsy cultures on a regional or a topic-oriented basis, are central to the meeting.

In this respect, the main interest lies in lectures related to ethnology, regional sciences, history, linguistics and sociology.

We would like to especially encourage those students or graduates to contribute to the meeting, whose final papers were or will be linked to the field of Romani/Gypsy studies.

After the events and the common dinners, the days are rounded off in a relaxed atmosphere with the latest musical or cinematic contributions.

The participation fee is about 10 euros (without liability). Travel expenses will not be compensated. In special cases of hardship, people with financial difficulties can be supported by the University of Leipzig or the student council.

For the duration of the workshop, it is possible for participants to stay with other participants living in Leipzig.

Participants who would like to give a short presentation on their work or give a theoretical and methodical, a practice oriented or any other lecture, are asked to hand in a summary of not more than one page by March 28th, 2010.

CfA: Summer Study Abroad - Croatia, Northwestern University, 21.6-30.7.2010

SUMMER STUDY ABROAD

CROATIA: Dubrovnik, Zagreb, and Split
June 21 - July 30, 2010

Croatia, the rising star of the Mediterranean, is an oasis of untouched beauty, and the legacies of the Romans, Venetians, and Habsburgs intermingle on its dazzling Adriatic coastline. This program is designed to provide students with a multidisciplinary perspective on Dalmatian and southeast European history, culture, and society from the early medieval period to the dissolution of Yugoslavia. Faculty include leading specialists on the Balkans from the United States, Europe, and
Croatia.

The program takes place in the cities of Dubrovnik and Split on Croatia´s Adriatic coast. Dubrovnik is a charming city of red-roofed 17th-century townhouses and Baroque palaces curling around a tiny harbor. Students focus on Renaissance culture and on the complex political and historical fate of the city and the region. Field trips to
sites in surrounding areas include Zadar, the oldest Slavic city on the Adriatic and the region´s once-famed cultural center, and the Plitvice National Park, a UNESCO world-heritage site. This park offers breathtaking scenery of 16 terraced lakes surrounded by thickly wooded mountains and lush vegetation. Split, the regional capital of Dalmatia, has been a major urban center for more than 1,700 years. Built inside and around Diocletian´s Palace, which dates from the third century, this
cosmopolitan city is a world heritage site that weaves together imperial memories, traditional Dalmatian culture, and modern urban life in its numerous cafes and open-air markets. A long excursion to the capital of Zagreb exposes students to the baroque and medieval grand architecture, wide boulevards, and graceful squares of a major European city.
