ISDA 2002 - First Call for Papers (fwd)

After the success of ISDA 2001, we are organising
ISDA 2002: Second International Workshop on Intelligent Systems 
Design and Applications in Atlanta, USA. 

Venue: Atlanta, USA
Date: 07-08 August 2002, 
Workshop URL: http://isda2002.softcomputing.net/

Technically co-sponsored by The World Federation of Soft Computing (WFSC)

Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA 2002) is an International 
workshop that brings together international soft computing / artificial
intelligence researchers, developers, practitioners, and users. The aim 
of ISDA 2002 is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as
well as to exchange research ideas in this field.
ISDA 2002 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work 
that demonstrate current research in all areas of soft computing and
computational intelligence including design of artificial neural networks, 
fuzzy systems, evolutionary algorithms, hybrid systems, agents, and their
applications in science, technology, business and commercial. 

Topics of interest include but not limited to: 

Applications/techniques using the following, but not limited to:

 Artificial Neural Networks

- Mathematical foundations of neural networks, architectures and algorithms.
- Learning theory (supervised/unsupervised/reinforcement learning)

                         Paper Submission

Authors of contributed and invited papers are requested to submit, before 
February 28, 2002, an article not exceeding 4 pages of their research  
presentation (each additional page costs US$50.00 per page).  Please type 
each  article  single spaced on one side of 8.5x11 size paper with one inch 
margin on all sides.

Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register 
and present the paper. All full papers are to be submitted in PDF, postscript 
or MS word version electronically to: isda02@softcomputing.net 

Hard copies should be sent only if electronic submission is not possible. 
All papers will be peer reviewed by at least two independent referees of the 
international program committee of ISDA'02. 

Extended version of selected papers will be considered as book chapters 
for a special edited volume which will be published in the "Studies in 
Fuzziness and Soft Computing" by Springer Verlag, Germany. Authors should 
indicate  whether they wish their papers to be considered for this special 

Extended version of outstanding papers will be invited for the  Elsevier 
Science International On-line " Applied Soft Computing Journal" (official 
journal of the World Federation on Soft Computing) . The  paper will be 
selected by the International Technical Committee of ISDA 2002.

                         Important Dates 
Submission deadline: February 28, 2002 

Notification of acceptance: March 22, 2002
