    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
    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. A CDRom with all the papers along with their
    presentation and additional material will be edited. Moreover,
    extended versions of selected papers of the conference will also be
    published in a special issue of the journal "Applied Soft Computing."
