CALL FOR PAPERS
4th International Conference on Neural Networks
and Artificial Intelligence
31 May - 2 June, 2006, Brest, Belarus
OFFICIAL LANGUAGE: English
PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 8 March 2006
SCOPE AND AIM:
A realization of Artificial Intelligence (AI) by Neural Networks (NN)
might sound somehow old but will be an ever lasting research area.
This conference intends to provide an interactive forum for discussions,
debates and brainstorms among researchers interested in combining these
two fields, in a creative, exciting, and free atmosphere. In the process,
we expect collaborations among those who have complementary ideas.
The conference will feature (1) two plenary talks by
- Heinz Muhlenbein ... Fraunhofer Institute (Germany)
- Robert Hiromoto ... University of Idaho (US)
(2) oral sessions with accepted papers. (3) A couple of panel discussions
are also planned.
We solicit papers of the latest techniques and achievements from
theoretical, experimental, as well as engineering aspect in all areas of
Neural Networks aiming Artificial Intelligence.
The conference covers all topics in Artificial Intelligence by Neural Networks.
Or far beyond, though we dare not to use a cliche like "including but not limited to"
- Brain-Inspired Information Technology;
- Modeling Learning and Memory;
- Robotics and Sensory Systems and Motor Controls;
- Robotics and Cognition, Emotion and Behavior;
- Brain-like Knowledge Extraction or Recovery in Databases;
- Evolving brain-like structure; and
- Artificial Life.
Or their fusion. Note again that the list is far from exhaustive nor
exclusive, which are also cliche though.
The papers must be in English with the maximum length of 8 pages, following
the guidelines in the authors instructions which can be downloaded at
where you can find a Style-file for LaTeX, as well as a skeleton for MS-WORD.
All submissions will be reviewed by the respective international program committees.
Papers will be selected based on their originality, timeliness, significance,
relevance and clarity of presentation (forgive me a cliche again).
Please, however, do not expect reviewers to be a proof-reader.
High quality submission is the author's responsibility and
inadequately prepared papers may be rejected.
Papers should be submitted in PDF format
(1) via the ONLINE SUBMISSION SYSTEM linked in the page to
(still it's under construction in a last ditch at this moment,
you might explore it though),
(2) by attaching it to an e-mail to icnnai@...
with the subject
ICNNAI SUBMISSION and with the attached file-name being

REPRESENT WHAT TOPICS YOUR PAPER EXPLORES. (if you submit the paper
by email these key wards should be in the text of e-mail , and if you
submit it via the web-page simply fill in the box. This is for the purpose
of efficiency in reviewing process.)
Receipt of submitted paper will be notified within a couple of working days
after the deadline.
After review process of all submissions, you will be notified by 29 March

The city of Brest is in a stone throw away from the border to Poland,
and situated 200km from Warsaw and 300km from Minsk. From either of
these cities we can access to the city by train quite easily.
Brest is a wonderful place to live, along with historical places which are
outstanding for a city with medium size. It is a terrific place,
personally speaking though, if you are interested in great nature.
We have the Brest fortress which is the main attraction of the city.
The fortress made a prolonged defence against Germans in 1941 and
was ruined in the result of severe battles. After the war the remains
of the fortress were turned into a grandiose memorial to its defenders.
(From the web-site bellow. Sorry for that but without a permission though.)
We have what they call largest forest in Europe in which we might visit
the gorgeous Summer-House once presidents of former Soviet Union stayed
during the summer holiday.
We have other Historical places as well as fancy Museums.
If you find time to walk to a big open market which is located in
a walking distance from the conference site, you will enjoy various kinds of
real fresh vegetables and fruits grown in Brest region.
Life in Brest is wonderful. We hope to see you in Brest.

We have a couple of good Hotels. See, for example,
We also have a limited number of nice facilities for lodging
in the campus of the Brest State Technical University where
the conference will be held.
Later the more detailed list for the hotel accommodation
will be appeared in the conference web-page.
Looking forward to receiving your paper(s) and meeting you
at the conference in Brest.
