                          Second Call for Papers

             The UK Workshop on Computational Intelligence

                       10-12th September, 2001

                            Edinburgh, UK

    The 2001 UK Workshop on Computational Intelligence (UKCI-01) will be
    held at the centrally-located Edinburgh-First Conference Centre,
    Edinburgh, UK, from 10th September 2001 till 12th September 2001.

    Computational Intelligence (CI) is a rapidly expanding research field,
    attracting a large number of scientists, engineers and practitioners
    working in areas such as fuzzy systems, neural networks, machine
    learning and evolutionary computation. Also, a growing number of
    companies are employing CI techniques to improve previous solutions
    and to deal with new problems. In particular, there have been
    successful developments recently in combining different CI techniques,
    and conventional methods, to build hybrid intelligent systems. These
    include smart adaptive systems that allow the achievement of stability
    in spite of changes which are either external or internal to the
    system, thereby increasing the re-usability of developed systems.

    The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for the academic
    community and industry to share ideas about developing and using CI
    technique-based systems and exchange views. The informal setting will
    encourage a lively atmosphere for discussing future research problems
    and for forging new contacts and collaborations.

    The workshop will include paper presentations and invited lectures by
    eminent CI researchers. It has been deliberately set as a low-cost
    event, so that young researchers in academia and industry may actively
    participate as well as established workers in the field.


    UKCI-01 invites contributions of papers in all of the traditional and
    hybrid CI areas. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

    * Theoretical foundations (e.g. mathematical and statistical models;
      learning strategies and systems; reasoning and meta-control;
      transparency and interpretability; smart and adaptive mechanisms;
      logical and philosophical issues)

    * Hybrid systems (e.g. symbolic and non-symbolic; neural and fuzzy;
      fuzzy, neural and genetic; fuzzy and probabilistic; hierarchical and

    * Problem-solving methods (e.g. monitoring and control; estimation and
      identification; prediction and simulation; clustering and
      classification; interpretation and recognition; optimisation and
      planning; data mining and knowledge discovery)

    * Application systems (e.g. industrial automation; financial time
      series analysis; image understanding; information retrieval; Web
      intelligence; e-commerce; biomedical informatics; multimedia and

    * Survey and methodological issues (e.g. classifying and relating CI
      approaches; evaluating CI approaches; criteria for selecting
      CI methods)


    Prospective authors are invited to contribute papers to the workshop.
    Submissions are made on the understanding that at least one author of
    an accepted paper will be presenting the paper. As UKCI-01 is a
    workshop, submission of the same paper to a formal conference or an
    academic journal is acceptable.

    A POSTSCRIPT, PDF or WORD file of the paper (or extended abstract) not
    to exceed 5000 words (excluding references) may be submitted via
    email to:


    or via the Web:


    If submitted by email, please give the following information in plain
    text: title of the paper; authors names; affiliation; and the postal
    address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers of the contact


    Papers will be selected according to their potential to generate
    discussion. Each paper will be reviewed by members of the programme

    Accepted contributions will be collected in an official proceedings as
    working papers and will be available for the attendees at the Workshop.
