Scope of the Symposium:
-----------------------

This symposium will be looking for answers concerning the following
questions:
* What is the state of the art in Computational Intelligence?
* What are the potential applications of Computational Intelligence
for real-world problems?
* What are the future trends in Computational Intelligence?
Researchers from all over the world are welcome on this symposium,
which will have the following goals:

1. Integration of scientific communities working with fuzzy systems,
neural networks and evolutionary computation approaches.

2. Strengthening of links between theory and real-world applications
of CI and Soft Computing.

3. Promotion of Computational Intelligence in Central Europe with
emphasis on commercial presentation of CI-oriented companies.

4. Support of new technologies that improve quality of life and will
lead to a user-friendly information society of the 21st century.

5. An opportunity for young researchers to learn and present new
results from the CI domain and to integrate into the international
research community.

The symposium will cover the following topics:
----------------------------------------------

- Neural Networks
- Fuzzy Systems
- Evolutionary Computation
- Neuro-Fuzzy & Fuzzy-Neuro Systems
- Neuro-Fuzzy Hybrid Systems
- Artificial Life
- Application of Computational Intelligence tools in various
real-world applications
- Presentations of CI oriented companies and their products

Presentations of Companies:
---------------------------

One of the goals of the symposium is to offer a possibility for
industrial companies to present their CI-based products and services
aimed at various kinds of customers, including banking industry,
control engineering, speech and voice recognition, prediction and
pattern recognition techniques, medicine and many other application
areas. Companies will have a chance to present their products in oral
presentation and also in permanent display of the products in the
Symposium building. Space of up to 9 square meters per company will
be available for the display purposes.

Venue:
------

The city of Kosice is located in the eastern part of Slovakia. The
first signs of inhabitance can be traced back to the end of the
Older Stone Age. The first written mention of the suburb is dated
back to the year 1230. The city was granted royal privileges that
were helpful in development of crafts, businesses, and production.
The oldest guild regulations were registered from the year 1307 and
the city received its own coat of arms - the oldest coat of arms out
of all the cities in Europe - in 1369. In 1657, due to the economical,
administrative and political importance of the city, the first
university was established; later the university was converted into
a royal university. Kosice is an important cultural, industrial, and
educational center in Slovakia and Central Europe with more than
20 000 students. It has 250 000 inhabitants and the historical center
is one of the best-renovated centers in central Europe. You may wish
to visit Kosice virtually at http://www.kosice.sk

A post-meeting trip will be organized to the High Tatras. This mountain
region is an area whose natural beauty makes it one of the most
remarkable recreation areas not only in Slovakia, but also in the rest
of Europe. A complete spectrum of hotels and restaurants await guests
whether they come looking for the beauty of the outdoors or for simple
relaxation. The High Tatras environment also provides a special variety
of sports and recreation facilities. More information can be found at
