The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers working
in all areas of fractal analysis. The scope encompasses recent
theoretical advances as well as industrial applications.
The first two "FRACTALS IN ENGINEERING" symposia (held in 1992 and 1994,
in Montreal) were very successful in providing a forum stimulating exchanges
between the academic and private sectors.

The third conference will be held in Arcachon in the Southwest part of France.


Topics to be covered include:

Dimension Theory - Signal Processing
Multifractal Analysis - Image Processing
IFS Theory - Finance
Harmonic Analysis on Fractals - Fractal-Wave Interactions
Dynamical Systems - Computer Network Traffic Analysis
Wavelets and Fractals - Processes on Fractal Surfaces
Stochastic Analysis on Fractals - Mechanical Aspect of Fractals


Two thematic sessions are scheduled per day. Each will be introduced
by an invited lecture allowing a formal introduction for non-specialists.
Several 25-minutes contributed talks will follow. A poster session will
be organized.
