      session chairs will be responsible for soliciting the papers,
      reviewing, and making final decisions, in consultation with the
      conference co-chairs. The names of session chairs will appear as
      Associate Editors in the proceedings.

      Proposals to organize special sessions should include the following
      information: name and address (including E-mail) of the proposer,
      title of a session, a 100-word description, and a short description
      on how the session will be advertised (in most cases, session
      proposers will solicit papers). Mail your proposal to M. Arif Wani
      (email address: awani@...).

      proposal to M. Arif Wani (email address: awani@...).


      Evaluation and Publication:
      --------------------------------
      Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, and clarity.
      Each paper will be refereed by two reviewers.

      The conference proceedings will be published by AMLA (ISBN), as a
      hardcopy. In addition, a CD version will also be available. The
      proceedings will be available at the conference.
      After the conference some papers will be considered for journal
      publication.


      Organizers/Sponsors:
      -------------------------
      A number of faculty members and their staff will be organizing the
      conference. The conference will be sponsored by the Association for
      Machine Learning and Applications (AMLA) along with other research
      centers (to be announced at a later time).


      Exhibition
      -------------
      An exhibition is planned for the duration of the conference.
      Interested parties should contact M. A. Wani (awani@...).
      All exhibitors will be considered to be the co-sponsors of the
      conference.


      Location of the Conference and Accommodation:
      -----------------------------------------------------------
      The conference will be held in the Sheraton Gateway Hotel Los
      Angeles Airport, California, USA. The Sheraton Hotel has excellent
      conference facilities and over 725 rooms. The hotel is minutes from
      the Los Angeles International airport with 24-hour complimentary
      shuttle service to and from the airport.

      As LAX's most accessible hotel, you'll find that many of Southern
      California's major attractions are just minutes away.

      The negotiated hotel's room rate for conference attendees is very
      reasonable (79USD + tax) per night (no extra charge for double
      occupancy) for the duration of the conference.

      Los Angeles is only a few hours away from cities like San Francisco,
      San Diego, Las Vegas, and the Grand Canyon.


      Submission of Papers:
      --------------------------
      All papers should be submitted to ICMLA office (icmla@...).
      The paper submission guidelines can be located at the conference
      website:
      http://www.icmla.org
    Your message has been successfully submitted and would be delivered to recipients shortly.
