    First International ICSC Conference on Neuro-Fuzzy Technologies
    NF 2002
    to be held in
    Havana, Cuba
    January 16 - 19, 2002

    International Computing Sciences Conventions (ICSC)
    Natural and Artificial Intelligence Systems Organization (NAISO)

    During the past decade, paradigms and benefits from neuro fuzzy
    systems (NF) have been growing tremendously. Today, not only does NF
    solve scientific problems, but its applications are also appearing in
    our daily lives.

    In order to discuss the state of the art in NF and the future of these
    exciting topics; we are honored to invite you to Neuro-Fuzzy 2002. We
    believe it will be an excellent opportunity to share our knowledge on NF
    and contribute to its development in the next century.

    This major international conference will be held in a very
    enjoyable location: Havana, the capital of Cuba, where we hope you will
    experience the famous Cuban hospitality.

    Updated information on special events such as keynotes /
    plenary presentations, tutorials, workshops, panel sessions,
    invited / plenary sessions will be available on the NF2002 web site:

    The organization of invited sessions is encouraged. Prospective
    organizers are requested to send a session proposal (consisting
    of 4-5 invited papers, the recommended session-chair and
    co-chair, as well as a short statement describing the title and the
    purpose of the session) to the respective symposium chair or the
    congress organizer. Invited sessions should preferably start with a
    tutorial paper. The registration fee of the session organizer will be
    waived, if at least 4 authors of invited papers register to the

    Poster presentations are encouraged for people who wish to receive peer
    feedback, and practical examples of applied research are particularly
    welcome. Poster sessions will allow the presentation and discussion of
    respective papers, which will also be included in the conference

    Pre-conference tutorials on specific relevant topics are planned.
    Proposals for a tutorial must include the title, topics covered,
    proposed speakers, targeted audience and estimated length
    (preferably 2 or 4 hours). The proposal must be submitted to the general
    chair, the scientific program chair and the congress
    organizer by June 30, 2001. Tutorial papers of max 15 pages can be
    included in the conference proceedings.

    Interested scientists are encouraged to organize a workshop on their
    particular field of research. Workshops consist of several
    presentations or open discussions on a specific subject. The
    proposal must include the title, the topics covered, the proposed
    speakers, the targeted audience and the estimated length. It should be
    submitted to the general chair, the scientific program chair and the
    congress organizer by June 30, 2001. Joint or edited workshop papers of
    max 35 pages can be included in the
    conference proceedings.

    Submission of papers can be done through our web site.
    If you submit a paper you will receive a notification e-mail with your
    paper number. Please use this reference number in the subject line in
    all correspondence and send us a draft paper by email for review by the
    International Program Committee. Please do not send us any hard copies.
    Please check our website for further instructions.
