    SPECIAL TRACK within the EIS 2002
    CHAOS and COMPUTATION
    organized by Prof. Nigel T. Crook and Dr Tjeerd Olde Scheper
    http://www.icsc-naiso.org/conferences/eis2002/indexsp.html (under invited sessions)

    PLEASE NOTE:
    SUBMISSION DEADLINE JANUARY 15th 2002

    Introduction
    The purpose is to give people the opportunity to share their research on how they are using chaos in the context of computation and infomation processing. More specifically, we are interested in how people are taking advantage of the properties of chaos (e.g. sensitivity to initial conditions, ability to synchronise, space filling, etc) when addressing computational or information processing problems.

    Our target audience will primarily include researchers from intelligent systems, communications, information systems and neuroscience. We are not aiming this specifically at Chaoticians who are contributing to the mathematics of chaos, rather than how it may be used in information processing.

    Topics (not exhaustive) include:
    Chaotic neural networks
     - the application of globally coupled chaotic maps to information processing
     - dynamic memory states as stabilsed orbits embedded in chaotic attractors
     - memory states corresponding to "wings" of attractors
     - using chaos to as a search mechanism (chaotic itinerancy)
     - learning and adaptation in chaotic neural networks
     - generalisation and capacity issues with chaotic neural networks
     - using synchronisation as a means of communication between distinct network modules

    Chaos and synchronisation
     - Applications of chaos to secure, noise tolerant secure communications

    Control of chaos in the context of information processing
     - direct control of chaos (e.g. OGY method)
     - continuous delayed feedback method
     - chaotic control of chaos

    Chaos and neuroscience
     - Evidence of the presence and use of chaos in natural intelligence

    Applications
     - the application of chaos to information systems/intelligent systems problems

    WORKSHOP Hybridization of Neural Networks and Genetic Algorithms (HyNNGA)
    Organized by Dr M. Rocha and Dr P. Cortez
    http://www.icsc-naiso.org/conferences/eis2002/indexsp.html

    PLEASE NOTE:
    SUBMISSION DEADLINE JANUARY 15th 2002

    Introduction
    Living creatures improve their adaptation capabilities to a changing
    world
    by means of two orthogonal processes: evolution and lifetime learning.
    Within Artificial Intelligence, both mechanisms inspired the development
    of non-orthodox problem solving tools, namely Genetic Algorithms (GAs)
    and Neural Networks (NNs).
    Both methods have been combined in several ways, in order to gain
    improved
    performances in various Machine Learning tasks.
    Typically, GAs are used to provide optimization for the NN learning
    process.
    The workshop is intended to gather people investigating in this field,
    providing
    room for debate of the different approaches.

    Topics
    - Training methods for NNs based on GAs
    - NN topology optimization via GAs
    - Genetic Data filtering for NN feeding
    - Lamarck vs Baldwin evolution
    - Reinforcement learning
    - Artificial life environments
    - Practical applications of hybrid GA/NN methods
