    Announcement and First Call for Papers

    FLINS 2002 - 5th International FLINS Conference on
    Computational Intelligent Systems for Applied Research

    September 16-18, 2002, Ghent, Belgium

    Organised by The Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK-CEN)
    and Ghent University, Belgium

    URL: http://fuzzy.rug.ac.be/flins2002

    FLINS, an acronym for Fuzzy Logic and Intelligent technologies in Nuclear
    Science, is a well-established international research forum to advance the
    theory and applications of computational intelligence for applied research
    in general and for nuclear science and engineering in particular.

    FLINS 2002 is the fifth in a series of conferences on computational
    intelligence for applied research and follows the successful FLINS'94 in
    Mol, FLINS'96 in Mol, FLINS'98 in Antwerp, and FLINS 2000 in Bruges,
    Belgium. FLINS 2002 aims at covering state-of-the-art research and
    development in computational intelligence for applied research and in
    particular for nuclear science and engineering. The major goals of this
    forum are to bridge the gap between theory and applications as well as to
    encourage interactions among scientists, researchers, and engineers from
    universities, research institutes, and industrial companies.

    Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract containing the paper
    title, the authors' names and affiliations, complete address (including
    e-mail, fax, and phone) of the corresponding author(s), up to five keywords
    and the abstract (1000-1500 words), before December 15, 2001 by mail, fax,
    or e-mail to the FLINS 2002 Conference Co-Managers (see below). E-mail
    submission is highly encouraged.

    The organizers intend to have the conference proceedings available at the
    conference to the delegates. All accepted papers reviewed by the scientific
    program committee of FLINS 2002 will be published as a book form by World
    Scientific Publishers. Proceedings styles for the final camera-ready copy
    are at
    s.shtml (book size: 8.5" X 6").

    The selected papers from the proceedings of FLINS 2002 will be further
    peer-reviewed and published as the special issue of FLINS 2002 in an
    International Journal.
