    The International Association of Science and Technology for Development
            Technical Committee on Artificial Intelligence

    In cooperation with the Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence

    ACI 2002 will be held at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. The capital city of
    Japan, Tokyo is also the most populous metropolitan area in the world. Yet
    despite its complex urban landscape and impressive architecture, this city
    abounds with parks and gardens. Within an hour of the city center there are
    beaches and a green hinterland, and slightly further away are volcanic islands
    with white sandy shores and deep mountains. From its establishment in 1603 to
    the end of the 19th century, Tokyo prospered as a castle town named Edo. In
    1868, the Imperial Palace was built on the former site of the castle, which
    continues today to be the residence of the Emperor and Empress of Japan. Among
    its many attractions, Tokyo is famous for its bustling nightlife, excellent
    shopping centers, exotic cuisine, and low crime rate. Well-known sites close to
    Tokyo include the Great Buddha statue at Kamakura, scenic Mt. Fuji, and the
    Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine.

    This conference acts as an international forum for researchers and practitioners
    interested in the advances in and applications of artificial intelligence and
    computational intelligence. It is an opportunity to present and observe the
    latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to
    this conference will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the
    International Program Committee. Acceptance will be based primarily on
    originality and contribution.

    ACI 2002 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conference on
    Information Systems and Databases (ISDB 2002) and the Forum on Information
    Technology (FIT). FIT 2002 is sponsored by the Information Processing Society
