Message 2: Hybrid Intelligent Systems (HIS'01)

Date: Fri, 10 Aug 2001 21:48:55 +1000
From: Maumita Bhattacharya <Maumita.Bhattacharyainfotech.monash.edu.au>
Subject: Hybrid Intelligent Systems (HIS'01)


SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS



Dear Colleague, 

We are organizing an exciting event: HIS'2001: International Workshop on
Hybrid Intelligent Systems in conjunction with The 14th Australian Joint
Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI'01). 

http://his.hybridsystem.com

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

HIS'01 is an International Workshop that brings together researchers,
developers, practitioners, and users of neural networks, fuzzy inference
systems, evolutionary algorithms and conventional techniques. The aim of
HIS'01 is to serve as a forum to present current and future research work
as well as to exchange research ideas in this field.

HIS'01 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that
demonstrate current research using hybrid computing techniques 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:

* Machine learning techniques (supervised/unsupervised/reinforcement learning)

* Neural network and evolutionary Algorithms

* Neural networks and fuzzy inference systems 

* Fuzzy clustering algorithms optimized using evolutionary algorithms

* Evolutionary computation (genetic algorithms, genetic 
programming ,evolution strategies, grammatical evolution etc.)

* Hybrid optimization techniques (simulated annealing, tabu search,
GRASP etc.)

*Intelligent agents (architectures, environments, adaptation/ learning and 
knowledge management) 

* Hybrid computing using neural networks - fuzzy systems -
evolutionary algorithms

* Hybrid of soft computing and hard computing techniques

* Models using inductive logic programming, logic synthesis, 
grammatical inference, case-based reasoning etc.

* Other intelligent techniques ( support vector machines, 
rough sets, Bayesian networks, probabilistic reasoning, 
minimum message length etc)


*************************************************************
Paper Submission
*************************************************************

We invite you to submit a full paper of 20 pages(maximum limit) for
the workshop presentation. Please follow the Springer-Verlag, author's
guidelines for more information on submission. 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: hybridsoftcomputing.net Hard copies
should be sent only if electronic submission is not possible. All
papers will be peer reviewed by two independent referees of the
international program committee of HIS'01. All accepted papers will
published in the proceedings of the Workshop by <b>Springer-Verlag,
Germany.
