Second International ICSC Symposium on
To be held at the University of Paisley, Scotland, U.K.
June 27-30, 2000

EIS'2000 is co-sponsored by 
The Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE),
The University of Paisley and 
ICSC International Computer Science Conventions


The EIS conference series pursue the synthesis of Artificial
Intelligence techniques with Control Engineering methods to produce
Intelligent Systems for Engineering applications. In recent years,
the combination of Control Engineering and extensive knowledge of AI
techniques has allowed scientists and practitioners to make a number
of significant contributions to this rapidly developing field, for
example in qualitative control, fuzzy qualitative simulation and model
based diagnosis, Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs), Genetic Algorithms
(GAs), Fuzzy Logic (FL), and Neuro-Fuzzy Systems (NFS).

The EIS conference series intend to provide researchers and
practitioners from industry and academia with a platform to report on
recent developments in the area of intelligent systems with focus on
applications of computational intelligence techniques to engineering
systems. The meeting will also provide a venue for dialogues between
software engineers, systems designers and knowledge engineers.

The first very successful conference in the series was held in
Tenerife, in February 1998 and the follow up event will be held in
cooperation with the University in Malaga, Spain, in the year 2002.

Paisley has always been colourful. With a population of over 79,000,
it is the largest town in Scotland, but its scale and character make
it a friendly place to study and live. Today Paisley is home to a
diverse range of modern industries including engineering, chemicals,
food, oil, microelectronics and computer systems.

Back in the 19th Century, the town's fame and prosperity came in
the shape of beautifully patterned Paisley shawls which were made by
local weavers and exported throughout the world. Paisley's other
main industry of the era was thread-making in massive mills that stood
along the banks of the River Cart. Today, there's an excellent
variety of shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The Lagoon Leisure
Centre includes saunas, solarium and an Olympic sized ice
rink. Regular exhibitions and events covering every area of the arts
add to the town's cultural calendar. You can enjoy the great
outdoors in numerous parks and gardens including the Gleniffer Braes
Country Park which covers 1300 acres of woodland and moorland.

*** Deux sites plutot qu'un seul ? Pourquoi faire ? (extrait) ***
Dossier du 31 mars au 6 avril 1999 par Jean-Francois FAURE

Il est tres frequent qu'une entreprise implantee sur le net veuille
toucher differents types de publics, soit parce que son activite
regroupe plusieurs domaines, ou bien parce que ses produits/services
ont le potentiel a interesser diverses personnes. Pourtant nous savons
tres bien que l'on ne peut pas s'exprimer de la meme maniere avec tout
le monde, notamment sur l'Internet ou l'on cultive le plus possible le
1to1. Comment faire dans ce cas pour repondre aux attentes les plus
precises de vos visiteurs sans avoir un site impersonnel ou mal cible
? (...)
