Dear Readers:
 I have now created an automatic index which is a single file containing
volume/issue identification followed by the table of contents for that
issue. This file is called 'index' and can be ftp'ed as per the
instructions at the beginning of the digest. I got the idea of the
index from Ken Anderson at Siemens who suggested to me that he needed
a fast "look-up" capability without having to wade through digest issues.
I hope that the index capability is useful. Periodically, I will post
the index within the digest itself - Right now, I have only volumes 10
through 14 encoded. I should have the back volumes done in the near
future.
 How can you use the index? Well, the regular expression tools in Unix
come to mind. For instance, to see if anything has been discussed about
Petri nets, you can do:

%grep -i petri index
(2) Petri Net Simulation
(1) Petri Net Simulators
(2) Petri Net Simulation (Summary)

 To find out about simulation in VLSI, you may have to try different
words. For instance:

%grep -i vlsi index

comes back with no response. However doing:

%grep -i hardware index
(4) Hardware Support for List Processing
(1) High Level Hardware Design

provides some useful information. Have fun.

                         FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT
                                and
                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                       International Workshop
                Parallel Problem Solving from Nature
                               (PPSN)

                         October 1 - 3, 1990
                University of Dortmund, Germany F.R.

Scope

With the appearance of massively parallel computers increased
attention has been paid to algorithms which rely upon analogies to
natural processes. The workshop scope includes but is not limited
to the following topics:

 - Darwinian methods such as Evolution Strategies
   and Genetic Algorithms
 - Boltzmann methods such as Simulated Annealing
 - Classifier systems and Neural Networks insofar as
   problem solving predominates
 - Transfer of other natural metaphors
   to artificial problem solving

The objectives of this workshop are

 - to bring together scientists and practitioners working on
   and with such strategies.

 - to gather theoretical results about as well as experimental
   comparisons between these algorithms.

 - to discuss various implementations on different parallel
   computer architectures (e.g. SIMD, MIMD, LAN).

 - to look for current and future applications in science,
   technology, and administration.

 - to summarize the state of the art in this field which up to
   now has been scattered so widely among disciplines as well
   as geographically.

Submission of papers, Proceedings

Prospective authors are invited to submit 4 copies of an extended
abstract of two pages to the conference chair before June 1, 1990.
All contributions will be reviewed by the programme committee and
up to about 30 papers will be selected for presentation. Authors
will get notice about acceptance or rejection of their papers by
July 15, 1990.

Full papers will be due on September 1, 1990. They will be delivered
to all participants at the conference as a prepublication volume.
Final papers for the proceedings of the workshop should be finished
immediately after the workshop. Details about the format of the
camera-ready final papers will be distributed later.

Language

The official language for papers and presentations is English.
