    Intelligent and integrated systems in Medicine and Biology
    (Chair: Victor Maojo, Polytechnical University of Madrid)

    Special session at KES'2002=20
    Sixth International Conference on Knowledge-Based Intelligent=20
    Information & Engineering Systems=20
    16, 17 & 18 September 2002=20
    Podere d'Ombriano, Crema, Italy

    http://www.brighton.ac.uk/kes/kes2002/

    =20

    The aim of this session is to give scholars and professionals of Medical =

    Informatics and Bioinformatics the opportunity to gather, communicate=20

    and exchange research ideas and results. During the last few years=20

    a new interest has appeared to stimulate a synergy between both =
    disciplines,=20

    combining theories, methods and applications. Institutions such as the=20

    European Commission and US private and public organizations=20

    have launched different initiatives to stimulate such interaction. =20

    =20

    In this session, authors are encouraged to submit papers dealing with=20

    all aspects of intelligent information and knowledge processing,=20

    analysis, and management in biomedicine. Particularly, methods or

    applications that could be common or reused in both Medical Informatics =
    and=20

    Bioinformatics. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):=20

    Intelligent decision-making in medicine and genetics

    Data mining in biomedical research (e.g., clinical and genomic =
    databases)

    Integrated computer systems in biomedicine

    Intelligent systems in medical and genetic education and research=20

    Intelligent modelling in biomedicine

    Internet-based methods for exchange of information among heterogeneous=20

    medical and genetic sources

    =20

    Submissions
    Papers should be submitted for review in electronic format (preferably =
    in=20

    Word, PDF or PostScript) to the Chair (vmaojo@fi.upm.es), using=20

    the subject-line "KES'2002 Special Session". Authors are encouraged to =
    contact

    the chair expressing their intention to submit a paper.

    Papers must be formatted as detailed in IOS Instructions=20

    for the Preparation of a Camera-Ready Manuscript=20

    (see the KES 2002 homepage for details). The maximum=20

    length of papers is five pages (when prepared according to the IOS=20

    instructions). Longer papers will be subject to an additional page =
    charge.=20

    Please note that final versions of accepted papers must be submitted in =
    hard copy.

    =20

    All papers must be presented by one of the authors, who must pay the =
    registration fee.=20

    The session papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings=20

    (IOS Press, Amsterdam, the Netherlands). Extended versions of=20

    selected papers will be considered for publication in the=20

    KES Journal (International Journal of Knowledge-Based Intelligent=20

    Engineering Systems).

    Important Dates
    Submission deadline: April 30, 2002 (Note: this deadline is

                                       different to general submissions to =
    KES2002)
    Notification of acceptance: May 10-13, 2002
    Deadline for camera-ready papers: June 1, 2002

    for all participants. Some of those sessions will be also devoted to=20
    Medical Informatics and Bioinformatics topics.
    Additional information for the KES conference

    KES2002 forms a truly international forum for the presentation of recent =
    work=20
    and the exchange of ideas on Intelligent Systems and Techniques, =
    Applications of=20
    Intelligent Techniques and related areas including Information =
    Technology and the Internet. =20
     The conference will consist of plenary sessions, and contributory =
    sessions mainly=20
    on the theory and applications of knowledge-based intelligent =
    information systems=20
    including but not limited to the following topics:
    =20
    Generic Intelligent Techniques: Artificial neural networks, machine =
    learning, knowledge-based=20
    & expert Systems, case-based reasoning, fuzzy and neuro-fuzzy =
    techniques, genetic algorithms,=20
    artificial life, intelligent agents;
