Both students and non-scientists will find this CD-ROM an enjoyable introduction to the human brain. The seven sections cover the structure and function of the brain, spinal cord, hearing, vision, and speech. The voice-over gives guidance in the pronunciation of Latin names of various brain substructures. The CD-ROM includes photos, video clips and animations, and a rotatable model of the brain which allows various substructures to be highlighted. The self-testing function allows a continual assessment of understanding, and students can keep their own record of images using the built-in photo album. The textbook 'Neurobiology' by D. Robinson which can be used in conjunction with the CD-ROM can be purchased separately (ISBN 3-540-63546-7) or together with the CD-ROM (ISBN 3-540-63778-8).

This volume is the third in an ongoing series of books that deal with the state of the art in timetabling research. It contains a selection of the papers presented at the 3rd International Conference on the Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling (PATAT 2000) held in Constance, Germany, on August 16{18th, 2000. The conference, once again, brought together researchers, practitioners, and vendors from all over the world working on all aspects of computer-aided timetable generation. The main aim of the PATAT conference series is to serve as an international and inter-disciplinary forum for new timetabling research results and directions. The conference series particularly aims to foster mul- disciplinary timetabling research. Our eld has always attracted scientists from a number of traditional domains including computer science and operational - search and we believe that the cross-fertilisation of ideas from di erent elds and disciplines is a very important factor in the future development of timetabling research. The Constance conference certainly met these aims. As can be seen from the selection of papers in this volume, there was a wide range of interesting approaches and ideas for a variety of timetabling application areas and there were delegates from many di erent disciplines. It is clear that while considerable progress is being made in many areas of timetabling research, there are a number of important issues that researchers still have to face. In a contribution to the previous PATAT conference, George M.

Thisvolumecontainsaselectionofpapersfromthe4thInternationalConference on the Practice and Theory of Automated Timetabling (PATAT 2002) held in Gent, August 21–23, 2002. Since the ?rst conference in Edinburgh in 1995, the range of timetabling applications at the conferences has become broader and more diverse. In the s- ected papers volume from the 1995 conference, there were just two contributions (out of 22) which did not speci?cally address school and university timetabling. In the selected papers volume from the 1997 conference in Toronto, the number of papers which tackled non-educational problems increased. Two of the papers addressed more than one timetabling application. In both of these papers, educational applications were considered in addition to other applications. A further three papers were concerned with non-educational applications. The conference steering and programme committees have worked hard to attract a wide range of timetabling applications. In the conference held in Konstanz in 2000, the diversi?cation of timetabling problems increased signi?cantly. Of the 21 selected papers in the postconference volume, just 13 were speci?cally concerned with educational timetabling. In the previous volumes, the papers had been sectioned according to solution technique. In the Konstanz volume the papers were classi?ed according to application domains. One section of the volume was entitled “Employee Timetabling,” while sports timetabling, air?eet scheduling, and general software architectures for timetabling were also represented. In the present volume, more than one-third of the 21 papers discuss problems in application areas other than academic and educational ones. Sports timetabling and hospital timetabling are particularly well represented.

The interdisciplinary field of smart digital systems is crucial to modern computer science, encompassing artificial intelligence, information systems and engineering. For over a decade the mission of KES International has been to provide publication opportunities for all those who work in knowledge intensive subjects. The conferences they run worldwide are aimed at facilitating the dissemination, transfer, sharing and brokerage of knowledge in a number of leading edge technologies. _x000D_ This book presents some 80 papers selected after peer review for inclusion in three KES conferences, held as part of the Smart Digital Futures 2014 (SDF-14) multi-theme conference in Chania, Greece, in June 2014. The three conferences are: Intelligent Decision Technologies (KES-IDT-14), Intelligence Interactive Multimedia Systems and Services (KES-IIMSS-14), and Smart Technology-based Education and Training (KES-STET-14). _x000D_ The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves the development and application of intelligent digital systems.

The 2001 International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR 2001, www.iccbr.org/iccbr01), the fourth in the biennial ICCBR series (1995 in Sesimbra, Portugal; 1997 in Providence, Rhode Island (USA); 1999 in Seeon, Germany), was held during 30 July – 2 August 2001 in Vancouver, Canada. ICCBR is the premier international forum for researchers and practitioners of case based reasoning (CBR). The objectives of this meeting were to nurture significant, relevant advances made in this field (both in research and application), communicate them among all attendees, inspire future advances, and continue to support the vision that CBR is a valuable process in many research disciplines, both computational and otherwise. ICCBR 2001 was the first ICCBR meeting held on the Pacific coast, and we used the setting of beautiful Vancouver as an opportunity to enhance participation from the Pacific Rim communities, which contributed 28% of the submissions. During this meeting, we were fortunate to host invited talks by Ralph Bergmann, Ken Forbus, Jaiwei Han, Ramon López de Mántaras, and Manuela Veloso. Their contributions ensured a stimulating meeting; we thank them all.

The scheduling research field has been active and expanding for over forty years. In that time, the field has attracted a wealth of international interest from a variety of academic disciplines. This field has been a truly inter-disciplinary research area, with significant scientific advances have come from the disciplines of Information Technology and Computer Science, Mathematics and Operations Research, Manufacturing, Management, Business, Engineering, Psychology and Statistics. Nevertheless, after forty years of research, scheduling and IT systems have only scratched the surface of the benefits that can be realized from this field. MULTIDISCIPLINARY SCHEDULING: Theory and Applications is a volume of nineteen reviewed papers that were selected from the sixty-seven papers presented during the First Multidisciplinary International Conference of Scheduling: Theory and Applications (MISTA). This is the initial volume of MISTA—the primary forum on interdisciplinary research on scheduling. Each paper in the volume has been rigorously reviewed and carefully copyedited to ensure the volume's readability. The book contains leading edge papers on the fundamentals of scheduling, multi-criteria objective scheduling, personnel scheduling, scheduling in space, scheduling the Internet, machine scheduling, bin packing, educational timetabling, sports scheduling, transport scheduling, aircraft scheduling, and heuristic and meta-heuristic scheduling. The MISTA volume aims to help set the agenda for interdisciplinary scheduling research and to help the community carryout a long term interdisciplinary research program aimed at developing visionary approaches to the scheduling problems and scheduling related problems of today and tomorrow that are vital to the smooth and efficient running of industry, commerce and the service sector. The book will be of interest to all who need to know the state-of-the-art in scheduling, whether they are experienced or new to the area.
