  13th International Conference on Neural Information Processing (ICONIP2006)

          Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong

                            October 3-6, 2006



The Thirteenth International Conference on Neural Information Processing 
(ICONIP2006) sponsored by the Asia Pacific Neural Network Assembly (APNNA) and 
organized by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, will be held in Hong Kong on 
October 3-6, 2006.  You are invited to visit this vibrant and dynamic 
metropolitan to share the progress and research in neural computation, 
statistical processing, machine learning, and other related topics.  ICONIP2006
will include plenary speakers, invited talks, tutorials, special sessions, as 
well as highly selected oral and poster presentations of refereed papers. In
addition, conference social events along with other local attractions will 
promote interactions among conference delegates.

(LNCS) by Springer-Verlag (approval pending).  In addition, a special issue on 
Neural Information Processing will be published in Neurocomputing based on 
selected papers with substantial expansion after further review.
