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 sight seeing 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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)
J. Keller and B. B. Chaudhuri (Image Processing)
L. Ding (Approximate Reasoning and Control)
J. Kacprzyk (Data Mining)
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.
