    eunite 2001 - European Symposium on Intelligent Technologies,
    Hybrid Systems and their implementation on Smart Adaptive Systems

    13 - 14 December 2001

    Tenerife, Spain

    ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

    (A pdf-file containing the complete announcement and call for papers can be
    downloaded on www.eunite.org.)

    EUNITE 2001 will take place in Tenerife, Spain from 13 - 14 December 2001. It is a
    symposium organised by the European Network of Excellence EUNITE which hast started
    on 1 January 2001 and is funded by the Information Society Technologies Programme
    (IST) within the European Union's Fifth RTD Framework Programme. Detailed information
    on EUNITE and how to become a member of the network can be found on www.eunite.org.

    The symposium will show state-of-the-art presentations as well as new developments in
    the so called Intelligent Technologies: fuzzy logic, neural networks, evolutionary
    computation and machine learning. The focus will be on hybrid systems that combine two
    or more of these technologies and/or address issues on adaptivity, preferably with
    special interest to solve industrial problems. The aim is also to investigate Adaptive
    Intelligent Systems: systems that coordinate perception, reasoning, and action to pursue
    multiple goals while functioning autonomously in dynamic environments.

    EUNITE 2001 will have parallel sessions where experts present their newest developments
    and applications. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

    Intelligent & Hybrid Developments and Applications in
    · Intelligent Control - Methodology (special interest in adaptivity issues) and Applications

    · important in the area of the symposium
    · to find European partners for future collaboration.

    Who will benefit?
    · Practitioners interested in the benefits of using Intelligent Technologies like
    Fuzzy Logic, Neural Networks, Machine Learning and Evolutionary Computation to solve
    their problems.
    · Consultants, applied researchers and people in industry who are already running
    · projects with intelligent technologies and want to exchange their experience in
    · successful projects.
    · Researchers wanting to identify important research problems for the coming years.
    · Individuals wanting to keep up to date with recent developments.
    · Those who have recently entered this rapidly expanding field, requiring a
    · complete perspective of the subject and its applications.

    Why attend?
    EUNITE 2001 provides you with the opportunity to:

    · Keep up to date with the state-of-the-art in this rapidly advancing and expanding field.
    · Meet consultants, researchers and people from industry to discuss possible applications
    of intelligent technologies.
    · Get to know successfully exploited technical as well as management applications of intelligent
    technologies in different industrial sectors.
    · Exchange your experiences in successful projects with other practitioners.
    · Make out future research problems.
    · Gain new perspectives on the relevance of intelligent technologies to commercial and industrial
    requirements, through the example of commercially-established applications.
    · Be part of a forum for industry and academia, and ensure improved collaboration on future
    developments.

    Call for Papers

    Authors are invited to submit papers including clear concluding remarks. After acceptance for
    presentation the papers will be published in the proceedings on CD-ROM.

    Proposals for sessions/workshops are welcome. Persons interested in organising a session/workshop
    should contact the organiser as soon as possible.

    We intend to publish

    · the papers on CD-ROM and additionally
    · a booklet containing abstracts (max. 1 DIN A4 page) of the papers.
