    The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners
    from the industry and academia and provide them a platform to report on
    recent developments on fuzzy systems and soft computational intelligence in
    management and industrial engineering.

    Artificial Neural Networks, Machine Learning, Knowledge-based & Expert
    Systems, Fuzzy and Neuro-Fuzzy Systems, Industrial Control, Financial &
    Stock Market Monitoring and Prediction,Genetic Algorithms, Managerial
    Applications of Computational Intelligence Tools, Cognitive Science,
    Presentations of Computational Intelligence Oriented Companies and Their
    Products, Case-based Approximate Reasoning and Problem Solving,
    Human-Computer Interaction, E-Commerce, Simulation, Multi-Media and
    Web-based Technologies, Logistics and Supply Chain, Scheduling, Production
    Planning and Control, Quality Assurance & Evaluation methodology, Human
    Factors & Ergonomics in Production & Service Systems.

    The papers submitted for presentation at FSSCIMIE'2002 must be original, not
    published or being considered elsewhere. All papers accepted for
    presentation will appear in the proceedings of the conference and will be
    distributed to the participants.

    The presented papers will be further screened for possible publication in a
    special issue of "Journal of Logistics Information Management"

                               Submissions of Papers
    Prospective authors should submit the abstracts of their papers either
    electronically or hard copies, up to two pages in 10-12 point font, before
    October 22, 2001 to the address of the Conference Secretariat given below.
    Abstracts should include five to ten keywords, and the technical area(s)
    most relevant to your paper, and the corresponding author's e-mail address.
    Please use the e-mail address for the electronic submission of the papers.

              Parallel Presentations and Poster/Demonstration Sessions
    When considering submissions for the parallel presentations, authors should
    consider whether their material may be more effectively presented in the
    poster/demonstration sessions. Poster/demonstration sessions have been
    especially designed to accommodate the presentation of late-breaking
    scientific and professional news; work in progress; work which can be more
    effectively presented via demonstration or when the author feels more
    comfortable presenting the material in written form or demonstrating it
    rather than by oral presentation.

                                   Conference Fees
    The conference registration fee includes refreshments, light lunches, final

                        Let's Meet Where Two Continents Meet
    Istanbul is the only city in the world, which embraces two continents, one
    arm reaching out into Asia, the other into Europe. The former capital of
    three successive empires- Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman- the city is a
    fascinating mixture of past and present, old and new, modern and
    traditional. The museums, churches, palaces, mosques and bazaars and the
    sights of natural beauty seem inexhaustible.

    Istanbul is one of the cheapest cities in the world. You will be suprised
    when you see the prices of goods and services (1 US $ = 1,150,000 Turkish
