                    ISAS 2001
        International Symposium on Adaptive Systems

     "Evolutionary Computation and Probabilistic
             Graphical Models"

      Hotel Palco and Havana Convention Center,
              March 19-23, 2001

         ( http:://isas2001.tripod.com/symp )

-------------------------------------------------------

To be hold in Havana in the period 19-23 March 2001 in
the context of the International Conference CIMAF
2001.
The major themes of the symposium are evolutionary
computation or hybrid evolutionary approaches,
and bayesian learning or learning in graphical models.

This symposium follows the successful ISAS’99
(International Symposium on Adaptive Systems)
held in Havana in the context of CIMAF’99 conference,
and aims at exploring these two research
activities and their roles and interactions in
Adaptive Systems.

----------------------------------
- Scientific Programme

Our main purpose is to bring together researchers,
coming from different communities, who share the
common feature of being involved in using the
dependence structure of a complex statistical model in

some aspect of evolutionary computation and other
modern heuristic or soft-computing techniques.
Cross-fertilization between graphical model research
and different soft-computing approaches, such as
genetic algorithms and other evolutionary algorithms,
as well as neural network learning, reinforcement
learning, decision tree learning, etc, will be
strongly encouraged by the conference. However, the
topics
of interest to this conference include but are not
limited to the following:

- Genetic algorithms
- Learning Bayesian Models from data.
- Genetic programming
- Mixture of Models.
- Classifier systems, evolutionary learning.
- Dynamic Bayesian Networks.
- Evolutionary optimization.
- Gaussian Graphical Models.
- Constraint, global and multiobjective optimization
- Model selection.
- Evolutionary strategies
- Monte Carlo methods.
- Graphical Models and Evolutionary Computation.
- Junction tree algorithms.
- Graphical Models and Neural Networks.
- Simulation in Graphical Models.
- Reinforcement learning.
- Theoretical Foundations of G. Models
- Bayesian and Evolutionary Data Mining.
- Stochastic algorithms
- Other soft-computing heuristics.
- Models with latent variables
- Stochastic Dynamical Systems.
- G. Models in Game Theory
- Theoretical Foundations of EC
