    IDEAL 2002, Third International Conference on
    Intelligent Data Engineering and Automated Learning
    Call for Papers
    12-14 August, 2002
    Manchester, UK

    IDEAL is a biennial conference dedicated to emerging and challenging topics
    in intelligent data analysis and engineering and their associated learning
    paradigms. Following the highly successful IDEAL'98 and IDEAL'00 conferences
    held in Hong Kong, the third conference in this series will bring together
    researchers, scientists and practitioners from all over the world to present
    their findings, to exchange ideas, and to share their successes. IDEAL is an
    ideal forum for revealing and developing the latest theoretical advances and
    practical applications in intelligent data engineering and automated
    learning. The main themes of the conference are Document Analysis and
    Management, Data Mining and Fusion, Financial Engineering, Agents, and
    Bioinformatics. IDEAL'02 will be held at UMIST (University of Manchester
    Institute of Science and Technology), Manchester, UK, a university with a
    reputation of innovation and a long history in leading research and
    development. Manchester is the birthplace of the industrial revolution, the
    computer revolution and many developments in artificial intelligence. The
    conference is organised in collaboration with the IEEE Neural Networks
