#8 Meeting: Nonlinear Modeling (Leuven, Belgium)

International Workshop on

Advanced Black-Box Techniques for Nonlinear Modeling: Theory and

with Time-Series Prediction Competition

Date: July 8-10, 1998
Place: Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium

Organized at the Department of Electrical Engineering (ESAT/SISTA) and
the Interdisciplinary Center for Neural Networks (ICNN) in the
framework of the project KIT and the Belgian Interuniversity
Attraction Pole IUAP P4/02. In cooperation with the IEEE Circuits and
Systems society.

General Scope

The rapid growth of the field of neural networks, fuzzy systems and
wavelets is offering a variety of new techniques for modeling of
nonlinear systems in the broad sense. These topics have been
investigated from differents points of view including statistics,
identification and control theory, approximation theory, signal
processing, nonlinear dynamics, information theory, physics and
optimization theory among others. The aim of this workshop is to serve
as an interdisciplinary forum for bringing together specialists in
these research disciplines. Issues related to the fundamental theory
as well as real-life applications will be addressed at the workshop.

Time-Series Prediction Competition

Within the framework of this workshop a time-series prediction
competition will be held. The results of the competition will be
announced during the workshop, where the winner will be
awarded. Participants in the competition are asked to submit their
predicted data together with a short description and references of the
methods used. In order to stimulate wide participation in the
competition, attendance of the workshop is not mandatory but is of
course encouraged.

Invited Speakers (Confirmed)

* L. Feldkamp (Ford Research, USA) - Extended Kalman filtering
* C. Micchelli (IBM T.J. Watson, USA) - Density estimation
* U. Parlitz (Gottingen, Germany) - Nonlinear time-series analysis
* J. Sjöberg (Goeteborg, Sweden) - Nonlinear system identification
* S. Tan (Beijing, China) - Wavelet-based system modeling
* M. Vidyasagar (Bangalore, India) - Statistical learning theory
* V. Wertz (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium) - Fuzzy modeling

A book containing the invited talks and the time-series competition
will be published by Kluwer Academic Publishers and will be available
at the workshop.
