All interested persons are invited to submit paper/poster presentations
that address recent advances in the area of NEURO-FUZZY-GENETIC
MODEL-BASED IDENTIFICATION AND

1. Portfolio management using neural networks,

2. Financial planning with ANN,

3. Stock picking to maximize return with fuzzy logic,

4. Options trading using genetics algorithms,

5. Fuzzy logic as an effective tool for portfolio divervisification,

6. Maximize return and minimize risk with neural networks,
7. Price forecasting in dynamic markets using soft computing. (Visit
our homepage at:
http://bisc.lbl.gov/ for more information).Papers that present new
theoretical results, innovative strategies, new applications and new
problem areas are strongly encouraged. Authors are required to clearly
state the contribution of their work to the advancement of the current
state-of-art in the field. The aim of this session is to present the
research and practical application of soft computing techniques in the
field of the Finance and Bussines.

"The successful applications of soft computing and the rapid growth of
BISC suggest that the impact of soft computing will be felt increasingly
in coming years. Soft computing is likely to play an especially
important role in science and engineering, but eventually its influence
may extend much farther. " A glimpse into the future (Note from
Professor Zadeh)
