Subject: HIS'02 - First Call for Papers



December 01 - 04, 2002
Universidad de Chile, Santiago, Chile

Deadline for Paper Submission: July 31, 2002

HIS'02 is the second International conference that brings together
researchers, developers, practitioners, and users of soft computing,
computational intelligence, agents, logic programming, and several
other intelligent computing techniques. The aim of HIS'02 is to serve
as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange
research ideas in this field.

HIS'02 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work
that demonstrate current research using soft computing/ computational
intelligence and other intelligent computing techniques and their
applications in science, technology, business and commercial. Please
submit a full paper of 8 to 10 pages (Letter or A4 paper) for oral
presentation. The proceedings of the Conference will be published by
Springer Verlag, Germany. A selected number of papers will also be
considered for a special issue of the Elsevier Science Journal
"Applied Soft Computing".Please follow the author's guidelines given
by Springer-Verlag, Germany for more information on
submission. Author's guidelines can be downloaded from the conference
web page.
