            Prospective authors are invited to submit three copies of their
            draft paper (4 to 5 pages) to H. R. Arabnia (address is given
            below) by the due date. E-mail and Fax submissions are also
            acceptable. The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted)

            The first page of the draft paper should include: title of the
            paper, name, affiliation, postal address, E-mail address,
            telephone number, and Fax number for each author. The first
            page should also include the name of the author who will be

            Each technical session will have 5/6 paper presentations.
            The session chairs will be responsible to recruit and select
            the papers for their own sessions. The names of session
            chairs will appear as Associate Editors in the conference
            proceedings. Proposals to organize technical sessions should
            include the following information: name and address (+ E-mail)
            of proposer, title of session, a 100-word description of the
            topic of the session, and how you plan to advertise the session
            and select papers for the proposed session. Mail your proposal to
            H. R. Arabnia (address is given below); E-mail submissions are
            The successful proposers will be requested to provide (by April
            3, 1998) the titles of accepted papers in the session, names
            of authors, E-mail addresses and mailing addresses of
            Contact Authors.


            Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance,
            clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two
            researchers in the topical area. The Camera-Ready papers
            will be reviewed by one person.


            The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA Press
            (ISBN). The proceedings will be available at the conference.
            It is planned to select 20 papers for journal publication in
            related journals (after the conference).


            A number of university faculty members in cooperation with
            the Monte Carlo Resort (conference division) will be organizing
            the conference. The conference is sponsored by the Computer
            Science Research, Education, and Applications Tech. (CSREA) in
            cooperation with the National Supercomputing Center for Energy
            and the Environment (Department of Energy, USA), the Computer
            Vision Research and Applications Tech. (CVRA), developers of
            high-performance machines and systems (pending) and related
            computer associations (pending.)


            The conference will be held in the Monte Carlo Resort and
            Casino hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. This is a new hotel
            with excellent conference facilities and over 3000 rooms.
            The hotel is minutes from the Las Vegas airport with free
            shuttles to and from the airport.
            The hotel has many vacation and recreational attractions,
            including: casino, waterfalls, spa, kiddie pools, sunning
            decks, Easy River water ride, wave pool with cascades,
            lighted tennis courts, health spa (with workout equipment,
            whirlpool, sauna, ...), arcade virtual reality game rooms,
            nightly shows, snack bars, a number of restaurants, shopping
            area, ... Many of these attractions are open 24 hours a day
            and most are suitable for families and children.
            The hotel's room rate is very reasonable ($79 + tax) per
            night for the duration of the conference.

            The hotel is minutes from other Las Vegas attractions (major
            shopping areas, recreational destinations, fine dining and
            night clubs, free street shows, ...).

            For the benefit of our international colleagues: the state of
            Nevada neighbors with the states of California, Oregon, Idaho,
            Utah, and Arizona. Las Vegas is only a few driving hours away
            from other major cities, including: Los Angeles, San Diego,
            Phoenix, ...


            An exhibition is planned during the conference. We have reserved
            20+ exhibit spaces. Interested parties should contact
            H. R. Arabnia (address is given below).
            All exhibitors will be considered to be the co-sponsors of
            the conference. Each exhibitor will have the opportunity to
            include a two-page description of their latest products in the
            conference proceedings (if submitted by May 22, 1998).
