This year's Colloquium will feature a special session on
"Advances in computational methods: Innovations in
theory and analysis". We are soliciting papers describing
computional methodologies in furtherance of more general
linguistic understanding.� This includes, but is not limited to,
papers on formal language theory and computational models of
natural data.� We are interested in papers from across the
spectrum of theoretical and applied linguistics and related

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ISDA 2002 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work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.
