Call FOR PAPER
Fourth International ICSC Symposia on
SOFT COMPUTING AND INTELLIGENT
SYSTEMS FOR INDUSTRY
June 26-29, 2001
Paisley, Scotland, U.K.
PURPOSE OF SOCO/ISFI 2001
The twin conferences, Soft Computing (SOCO 2001) and Intelligent Systems
for Industry (ISFI 2001) are intended to cover the field of "soft computing"
from pure blue-sky research (SOCO) to prototypes and applications of soft
computing. Soft computing has become a term embracing artificial neural
networks, evolutionary algorithms, belief networks, fuzzy sets and logics,
etc. (A fuller list of topics appears below).
AIM OF SOCO 2001 AND ISFI 2001
SOCO 2001 aims to be of broad interest to engineers, computer scientists and
all who use such technologies. It will be a forum for the
Dissemination of new research in the field of soft computing
Introduction of application-oriented researchers to leading edge new
ISFI 2001 will encourage practitioners and researchers from industry,
commerce, education and governments to submit existing applications of soft
computing either as technical papers or as demonstrations. ISFI 2001 aims
to be a forum for the
Dissemination of results on new applications in this field
Introduction of pure research oriented personnel to applications of
Symposium Topics (SOCO'2001)
Soco'2001 will include contributions on long term research (theory
development, enhanced approaches, formal methods comparisons, applications,
etc.) in the area of soft-computing. Contributions are sought in areas based
on the list below, which is indicative only.
Genetic Algorithms and Evolutionary Computing
Al and Expert Systems
Probabilistic Reasoning, belief nets
Learning Algorithms and Intelligent Control
Pattern Recognition and Image Understanding
Fuzzy Databases and Information Retrieval
Educational Aspects of Soft Computing

Symposium Topics (ISFI'2001)
ISFI'2001 will include contributions in the research area of Soft Computing
Application and, more general, related to medium-to-short term and
application driven developments Advanced Information Technology and
Industrial Intelligent Technology. Particular emphasis will be laid on
industrial realization, experimental application, application methodology
development and/or formalization, quantitative and qualitative problem
Contributions are sought mainly in the areas based on the list below:
Industrial Area: Commerce, Energy, Transportation, Services, Medicine
High-Tech Area: Innovative Control and Diagnostics, Computer Vision,
Robotics and Remote Sensing, Speech Recognition and Machine Translation,
Green-tech Area: Intelligent Resource Management, Intelligent Pollutant
Management, User Behavior Modelling, Intelligent Traffic Control, etc.

The scientific program will include invited plenary talks, contributed
sessions, invited sessions, and tutorials.
Call for Invited Sessions
The organization of invited sessions is encouraged. Prospective organizers
are requested to send a session proposal (consisting of 4-5 invited papers,
the recommended session-chair and co-chair, as well as a short statement
describing the title and the purpose of the session) to the respective
symposium chair or the congress organizer. Invited sessions should
preferably start with a tutorial paper. The registration fee of the session
organizer will be waived, if at least 4 authors of invited papers register
to the conference.
Poster presentations are encouraged for people who wish to receive peer
feedback and practical examples of applied research are particularly
welcome. Poster sessions will allow the presentation and discussion of
respective papers, which will also be included in the conference
Call for Workshops, Tutorials and Other Contributions
Several workshops/tutorials are planned for SOCO/ISFI'2001. Each
workshop/tutorial will focus on a particular topic, and consist of several
presentations and open discussions. The proposal for a workshop/tutorial
should include the title, topics covered, proposed speakers, targeted
audiences, and estimated length (hours) of the workshop/tutorial. The
proposal should be submitted either to the congress chair, the corresponding
symposium chair or the congress organizer by January 15, 2001.
Submission of Papers
Prospective authors are requested to send a short biography and draft paper
of maximum 7 pages for review by the International Program Committee. All
submissions must be written in English, starting with a succinct statement
of the problem, the results achieved, their significance and a comparison
with previous work, as well as a list of references.
The submissions should also include:
- Title of symposium (SOCO 2001, ISFI 2001)
- Type of paper (regular, demonstration, tutorial or invited)
- Title of proposed paper
- Authors names, affiliations, addresses
- Name of author to contact for correspondence
- E-mail address and fax # of contact author
- Topics which best describe the paper (max. 7 keywords)
Contributions are welcome from researchers, academics and practitioners
active in any field of Soft Computing covered by the topics of the
congress. Congress language is English. Invited sessions, tutorial papers
and demonstrations are also encouraged. Prospective organizers are requested
to submit a session proposal to the congress organizer.
Submission by electronic mail is strongly recommended to
Proceedings and Publications
Proceedings will be available at the congress in print and on CD-ROM. All
accepted and invited papers will be included in the congress proceedings,
published in print and on CD-ROM by ICSC Academic Press, Canada/Switzerland.
A selected number of papers will be expanded and revised for
possible.inclusion in special issues of leading international journals.
