FLINS, an acronym for Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent technologies in Nuclear
Science, is a recent established international research forum aiming to
advance the theory and applications of intelligent techniques and soft
computing in nuclear science and engineering.
Following FLINS'94, FLINS'96 and FLINS'98, the first, second and third
international conferences on this topic, FLINS'2000 aims at bringing
together scientists and researchers and at introducing the principles of
intelligent techniques and soft computing such as fuzzy logic, neural
networks, genetic algorithms, knowledge.based expert systems and complex
problem.solving techniques within nuclear industry and related research
FLINS'2000 offers a unique international forum to present and discuss
techniques that are new and useful for nuclear science and engineering.

Contributions describing original work, research projects, and
state.of.the.art reviews are solicited on the following (nonrestrictive)
list of topics to be covered at

fuzzy logic,
neural networks,
genetic algorithms,
learning techniques,
man.machine interface,
decision.support techniques,
control theory,
rough set theory,
evidence theory,
belief theory,
functional modeling,
with applications in nuclear science and engineering, and related research
fields, such as:

nuclear reactor control,
nuclear energy and environmental protection,
safety assessment,
human reliability,
production processes in the fuel cycle,
waste and disposal,
power systems control,
load forecasting,

Authors are invited to submit a one.page abstract containing the paper
title, the authors' names and affiliations, complete address (including
e-mail, fax, and phone) of the corresponding author(s), five keywords and
the abstract (200.250 words), before December 15, 1999 by mail, fax, or
e-mail to the FLINS'2000 Chairman (see below).
The organizers intend to have the conference proceedings available to the
delegates (all accepted papers reviewed by the scientific committee of
FLINS'2000 will be published as a book by World Scientific Publishers).
The selected papers from the proceedings of FLINS'2000 will be further
published as the special issue of FLINS'2000 in an International Journal.
