The COST 254 workshop on intelligent communications and applications with special emphasis on mobile communications will be held in Neuchatel, Switzerland, on 5 to 7 May 1999. The workshop continues a series of meetings in the European Commission's programme for COST Action 254, which deals with all aspects related to "intelligent processing and facilities for communication terminals".

The workshop aims to promote discussions of recent developments in the field. It also aims to highlight results and their potential impact on advanced applications. It will emphasise mobile communications and foster interaction between research groups and industries - including small and medium sized business enterprises - at an international level.

The workshop will comprise the following six sessions.
- Invited tutorials and talks, reviewing the state-of-the-art, or presenting
relevant advances in selected areas or topics;
- Poster sessions for contributed papers;
- A demonstration session to present practical and applied results;
- Round tables to analyze trends and policies;
- Information sessions on the future of COST Telecom, and on the Fifth
Framework programme; and;
- Informal sessions to establish connections for further cooperation.

The conference organisers have announced a first call for papers for presentations at the workshop. The following topics are of particular interest:

- Basic functionalities for communication;
- Source coding (speech, audio, image, video);
- Channel coding, and joint source/channel coding;
- Wireless communications;
- Advanced communication technologies;
- Intelligent signal processing algorithms and techniques;
- Algorithm prototyping and implementation tools for communicating technologies;
- Software and hardware for terminals;
- Applications; and;
- Emerging standards.

The conference is being organised with the support of the EU COST organisation Secretariat and the Swiss Federal Office for Education and Science (BBW/OFES).
