Discrete Applied Mathematics

announcing a Special Issue on
Vapnik-Chervonenkis Dimension

Manuscripts are solicited for a special issue of Discrete Applied Mathematics on the topic of the Vapnik-Chervonenkis Dimension.

The special issue arose out of an ICMS Workshop on the VC Dimension though submission is not restricted to those who attended the workshop. For more information on the Vapnik-Chervonenkis dimension and the aims of the workshop and hence also the Special Issue, please consult the `scientific aims' available through the homepage:

The following is a (nonexhaustive) list of possible topics of interest for the Special Issue:

Four (4) copies of complete manuscripts should be sent to the Coordinating Editor indicated below by December 31, 1996. Email submission of postscript files (preferably compressed and uuencoded) is acceptable. Manuscripts must be prepared according to the normal submission requirements of Discrete Applied Mathematics, as described inside the back cover of each issue of the journal. All manuscripts will be subject to the regular refereeing process of the journal. Papers should include an abstract.
