Synopsis

Centered around major topic areas of both theoretical and practical importance, the World Congress on Neural Networks provides its registrants -- from a diverse background encompassing industry, academia, and government -- with the latest research and applications in the neural network field.

Excerpt

This volume for WCNN'95, the Novel Results Session (Volume 3), provides a collection of papers which otherwise may not have been available to participants. The motivation for this volume included the desire to present the work of researchers who may have missed the earlier call for papers as well as to encourage more widespread participation in the only major neural network conference to be held in the United States during 1995. The local availability of willing, dedicated student volunteers to create, edit, and publish this volume made the idea cost effective.

This volume grew out of a suggestion by the Local Organizing Committee for WCNN'95 to the Organizing Committee of WCNN'95, information having been shared with the Governing Board of INNS. Upon approval, a call for papers was issued electronically. The announcement was widely distributed by the Connectionist Bulletin Board, Neurodigest, Wavelet Digest, and the World Wide Web. More than 60 papers were received in response to the annoucement Any paper specifically endorsed by an INNS Governor or Special Interest Group Chairperson was accepted. All other received papers were reviewed by the SIGINN DC chapter.

The broad range of papers presented here is indicative of the diverse backgrounds of researchers in the neural networks field. The papers encompass areas such as live cellular oscillators, learning in biological neural networks, fractal associative memory, statistical theory of neural networks, parallel hardware architecture, Gabor and wavelet representations, chaotic and fuzzy function approximation. Applications include communications, tracking, flight control, color correction, and manufacturing. The Local Organizing Committee believes the papers provide a useful addition to their oral and poster presentations at the conference to the benefit of the readers and the neural network community.

Creating this volume required the time, effort, and perseverance of many people, several of whom deserve special thanks: Dr. Harold Szu who initiated the idea, and pursued it to reality; Mary O'Connor of Tally Management for coordination with the hotel and other matters; Ray O'Connell of L.E.A. for his help on the cover; and John Taylor, Bob Pap, Charles Hsu, Joe Landa, and Kim Scheff for help ranging from reviewing papers, to printing the volume. Finally, this volume would not exist without the financial support from the INNS editorial board and INNS program committee.

The success of this tome belongs to the individual contributors. Any weaknesses in editing and publishing are the responsibility of the undersigned.
