    Symposium Scope and Overview

    The past few years have seen a significant progress of the learning and adaptation
    algorithms and other paradigms for planning, optimization and control systems for
    solving real-life problems. The main theme of this symposium is the automatic
    learning and adaptation of the systems occuring in various fields. The acquisition
    of domain specific knowledge and the search for its representations as procedural
    metodology can be obtained by using learning and adaptation techniques. In order to
    discuss the state of the art research and to stimulate the cross-fertilisation of
    the pool of ideas, the prospective authors are invited to submit papers on one or
    more of the following aspects:

      o modelling of learning and adaptive operators/agents in stochastic systems;
      o time series modelling and mixture processes in evolutionary learning systems;
      o estimation/filtering/prediction for stochastic/statistical systems;
      o adaptive dynamics of knowledge networking processes;
      o reinforcement learning for conformant and stochastic planning;
      o stochastic programming and mathematical statistics of learning and adaptation
         processes;
      o stochastic/adaptive control strategies for learning systems;
      o artificial intelligence approaches for cooperative/competitive learning and/or
         adaptation processes.

    In general, the use of any learning and/or adaptation technique (such as inductive,
    supervised, analytic or reference model learning/adaptation) for the improvement of
    stochastic/statistical optimization/control systems will be of great interest. New
    viewpoints on the interrelation between these approaches and the integration efforts
    of different classes of methods are highly desired to be the special merit of this
    symposium.

    Paper Submission

    Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers (4-5 single spaced pages)
    to the Session Chair, Dr. Alexandru Murgu (address given below) by MARCH 1, 2001.
    The first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation,
    postal address, telephone number, fax and E-mail address of each author. The first
    page should also include the name of the contact author for notification of acceptance
    and a list of maximum of 5 keywords. The length of the camera ready papers (if accepted)
    will be limited to 7 pages. Papers must not have been previously published or currently
    submitted for publication elsewhere.

    Electronic submission is preferred. Papers can be submitted via e-mail or made available
    on the web. In both cases, documents should be in ZIPPED PostScript or PDF format and be
    named "author.zip", using the name of the contact author. An e-mail message containing
    either the file or its URL address (e.g. http://....../author.zip) should reach the Session
    Chair before March 1, 2001. If electronic submission is not possible, three hard copies
    should reach the Session Chair by the same date. Notice that the final version of accepted
    papers must be made available in PostScript, PDF, or source form.

    If you are interesting in presenting your work in one of the above areas, please send
    the draft paper(s) and the abstract(s) of about 200 words to

                                    Dr. Alexandru Murgu
                    Department of Mathematical Information Technology
                       University of Jyvaskyla, FIN-40351 Jyvaskyla
                                          FINLAND

                                    Tel. +358-14-2602757
                                    Fax. +358-14-2602731

    The postscript / ASCII format of the paper sent to <murgu@julia.math.jyu.fi> would be
    greatly appreciated. Feel free to distributed this call for papers to your friends and
    colleagues.

    Review Process and Conference Proceedings

    All submitted papers and abstracts will be peer reviewed. The papers have to provide
    sufficient information about the background to the problem, clearly indicate the
    original contribution, evaluate the results, draw conclusions and provide the adequate
    references. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the InterSymp-2001.

    Important Dates

         Abstract or paper submission: March 1, 2001
         Acceptance notification: April 1, 2001
         Final manuscript: May 1, 2001
