    TUTORIAL CHAIR: M. K. Chakraborti

    FINANCE CHAIR: R. Bandyopadhyay

    THE ORGANIZERS: Indian Statistical Institute and Jadavpur University,
    Calcutta in cooperation with national and international affiliates of
    Asian Fuzzy Systems Society (AFSS).

    THE OBJECTIVE: The aim is to bring the researchers working in soft
    computing and related areas under one umbrella to enable exchange of
    ideas and interaction between them for the advancement of science and
    technology. The conference will cover all facets of soft computing
    including both theories and applications with special emphasis on the
    "role of soft computing in information technology". There will be a
    one day pre-conference tutorial on February 3, 2002.
    THE VENUE: Science City, Calcutta. The conference site is close to the
    Calcutta International Airport.
    THE EXTRAS: Calcutta, the City of Joy, is proud of several interesting
    site seeing spots including a wonderful museum, a big zoo, the
    Victoria memorial and the science city. A local sightseeing program
    and also a social/cultural program will be arranged for the
    participants. Details will be intimated later.
    THE SUBMISSION PROCEDURE: Full papers not exceeding four A-4 size
    pages with complete affiliation of each author including email
    address, if any, should be sent to the Conference Secretariat, by
    April 30, 2001. We strongly encourage electronic submission. For
    electronic submission, a PS/PDF file of the manuscript should be
    mailed to afss2002.paper@isical.ac.in. For details of manuscript
    preparation and submission please see our web site:
    www.isical.ac.in/~afss2002. While submitting your manuscript, please
    indicate the area your paper is suitable for. Each paper will be
    reviewed by prominent researchers in the relevant areas. All accepted
    papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings which will be
    made available during the conference.
    THE TOPICS OF INTEREST: These include but not limited to the
    following: Fuzzy sets and systems, fuzzy mathematics, approximate
    reasoning, control, databases, neural networks, neuro-fuzzy systems,
    pattern recognition and image processing in soft computing paradigm,
    data mining, evolutionary computing, linguistic summarization,
    applications of soft computing in industries, remote sensing and in
    atmospheric sciences, and hardware for soft computing.

    M. K. Chakraborty (Fuzzy Mathematics)
    C. T. Lin (Neural Networks)
    W. Pedrycz and R. Krishnapuram (Pattern Recognition)
    K. Hirota and K. Roy (Industrial Applications)
    N. Kasabov (Neuro-fuzzy Systems)

    T. Yamakawa (Hardware Peculiar to Soft Computing)
    B. L. Deekshatulu (Remote Sensing /Atmospheric Science)
    T. Furuhashi (Evolutionary Computing)

    THE TUTORIALS: It will consists of two parts. The first part will
    provide a comprehensive knowledge of the major facets (namely, fuzzy
    logic, neural networks and evolutionary computing) of soft computing
    while the second part will focus on hybridization and advanced
    applications. A limited number of applicants will be allowed on first
    come first served basis. Proposals for tutorial outlining the contents
    should be sent to the conference secretariat.
    The Invited Sessions: Some special invited sessions will be organized
    by renowned scientists. Proposals for invited session should be sent
    to the conference secretariat.
    THE SPECIAL ISSUES: We plan to bring out a few special issues of some
    international journals based on enhanced versions of some selected papers.
