    7th Online World Conference on Soft Computing in Industrial

    September 23 -- October 4, 2002,

    On the Internet (World Wide Web)


    Original papers and online tutorials, along with survey papers are
    invited for the 7th Online World Conference on Soft Computing in
    Industrial Applications (WSC7) to be held on the Internet. We aim to
    have inspiring discussions between the authors and participants, and
    make them visible to everyone on the Internet. There will be a number
    of mirror sites around the world to make easier the access to this
    major event. WSC7 will aim at bringing together outstanding research
    and developments in the field of soft computing (evolutionary
    computation, fuzzy logic, neural networks, and their fusion) across
    the world with the goal to publish high-quality research quickly and
    with less cost. Although WSC7 is a online conference, its published
    proceedings will also be available. Publication of proceedings by
    Springer is expected. Moreover, a CDROM with all the papers along with
    their presentation and additional material will be edited. In
    addition, extended versions of selected papers of the conference will
    also be published in a special issue of the journal "Applied Soft
