    Dear Colleagues,

    After the success of ISDA 2001, we are organising ISDA 2002:
    Second International Workshop on Intelligent Systems Design
    and Applications in Atlanta, USA.

    Venue: Atlanta, USA
    Date: 07-08 August 2002,
    Workshop URL:

    Technically co-sponsored by The World Federation of Soft
    Computing (WFSC)

    Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA 2002) is an
    International workshop that brings together international soft
    computing / artificial intelligence researchers, developers,
    practitioners, and users. The aim of ISDA 2002 is to serve as
    a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange
     research ideas in this field.
    ISDA 2002 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished
    work that demonstrate current research in all areas of soft computing
    and computational intelligence including design of artificial neural
    networks,fuzzy systems, evolutionary algorithms, hybrid systems,
    agents, and their applications in science, technology, business
    and commercial.

    Topics of interest include but not limited to:

    Applications/techniques using the following, but not limited to:

     Artificial Neural Networks

    - Mathematical foundations of neural networks, architectures and
    - Learning theory (supervised/unsupervised/reinforcement learning)

                             Paper Submission

    Authors of contributed and invited papers are requested to submit,
    before February 28, 2002, an article not exceeding 4 pages of their
    research presentation (each additional page costs US$50.00 per page).
    Please type each article single spaced on one side of 8.5x11 size
    paper with one inch margin on all sides.

    Extended version of selected papers will be considered as book
    chapters for a special edited volume which will be published in the
    "Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing" by Springer Verlag, Germany.
    Authors should indicate whether they wish their papers to be
    considered for this special volume.

    Extended version of outstanding papers will be invited for the
    Elsevier Science International On-line " Applied Soft Computing
    Journal" (official journal of the World Federation on Soft Computing.
    The paper will be selected by the International Technical Committee
    of ISDA 2002.
