                           CALL FOR PAPERS

    FSKD'02, ICONIP'02, and SEAL'02 will be jointly held in Singapore from
    November 18 to 22, 2002. The conferences will not only feature the
    most up-to-date research results in neural information processing,
    evolutionary computation, fuzzy systems, and knowledge discovery, but
    also promote cross-fertilization over these exciting and yet closely-
    related areas. Registration to any one of the conferences will entitle
    a participant to the technical sessions and the proceedings of all
    three conferences, as well as the conference banquet, buffet lunches,
    and a tour to one of the major attractions in Singapore.

    About Singapore
    Located at one of the most important crossroads of the world,
    Singapore is truly a place where East and West come together. Here you
    will find Chinese, Indian, and Malay communities living together,
    their long established cultures forming a unique backdrop to a clean
    and modern garden city. English is spoken everywhere and is the common
    business language of all. Few places on earth promise such a delight
    for the palate, with gourmet cuisine from over 30 countries. Exotic
    resorts of Malaysia and Indonesia are only a short bus/ferry ride

    Submission of Papers
    Authors are invited to submit electronic files (postscript, pdf or
    Word format) through the conference home page. A selected number
    of accepted papers will be expanded and revised for possible
    inclusion in edited books and peer-reviewed journals, such as
    "Soft Computing" and "Knowledge and Information Systems: An
    International Journal" by Springer-Verlag.

    Special Sessions
    The conferences will feature special sessions on specialized topics
    to encourage in-depth discussions. One organizer of each successfully
    organized special session with at least 6 papers will enjoy a 50%
    discount on the conference registration fee. To propose a special
    session, email the session title, contact information of the
    organizer(s), and a short description on the theme and topics covered
    by the session to Xin Yao, Special Sessions Chair (x.yao@cs.bham.ac.uk),

    with a copy to Lipo Wang, General Chair (Cc: elpwang@ntu.edu.sg).

    The conferences will offer product vendors a sponsorship package
    and/or an opportunity to interact with conference participants.
    Product demonstration and exhibition can also be arranged. For more
    information, please visit the conference website or contact
    Tong Seng Quah, Sponsorship/Exhibition Chair (itsquah@ntu.edu.sg),
