FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

HYBRID AI SYSTEM WITH ADAPTIVE BEHAVIOUR

SCI '98 - Focus Symposium

ORLANDO, FLORIDA
- July 12 - 16, 1998
http:// www.iiis.org

SCI '98 Honorary Presidents: Bela H. Banathy, Staford Beer and George Klir
Symposium Chair Persons: Dr. B. Lees & Juan M. Corchado

MAJOR THEMES

The next anticipated breakthrough in computing science research is to develop
software and hardware with adaptive properties. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
systems can no longer afford to be static. There is a need for AI systems
capable of solving present problems and which are able to look a head and
adapt themselves to changes. The complexity of many self-contained habitant
requires the use of different AI approaches (symbolic and connectionist) to
solve different aspects of the problems, these approaches may work in
parallel, with or without communication, may be part of a multi-agent system
or contain various types of master-slave hierarchies. It is believed that an
effective solution to complex problems, that require adaptive problem solving
capabilities, may best be achieved though the potential synergy obtained by
employing a combination of AI paradigms.

The aim of the workshop will be to ascertain the state of the art of hybrid AI
research, by presenting a variety of current theoretical and practical
approaches involving hybrid systems characterised (but not restricted to) two
or more or the following components: Case Based Reasoning, Artificial Neural
Networks, Fuzzy Sets, Genetic Algorithm, Supervised Learning, Unsupervised
Learning, Real-Time, Multi-Agent Systems, Autonomous Agent, Adaptive
Behaviour, Model Based Reasoning, Modelling, Forecasting, Data Mining,
Knowledge Discovery, etc.

All papers selected will be published in the workshop notes. It is anticipated
that selected papers form the symposium may be published in an special issue
of an international journal.
