    The Symposium

    The biannual Brazilian Symposium on Artificial Intelligence (SBIA'02)
    - of which this is the 16th event - is a meeting and discussion forum
    for Artificial Intelligence researchers, practitioners, and students
    worldwide. SBIA is the leading conference in Brazil for presentation
    of research and applications in Artificial Intelligence. Since 1995,
    SBIA has become an international conference, with papers written in
    English, an international program committee, and proceedings published
    in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series of
    Springer-Verlag (SBIA'95:991, SBIA'96:1159, SBIA'98:1515,

    SBIA'02, sponsored by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC), will be
    held in Porto de Galinhas/Recife in November 11-14, Hotel Armação
    ( Porto de Galinhas, at the south
    coast of Recife, is one of the most beautiful and famous beaches of
    Brazil. Porto de Galinhas coast has 18 km of beaches with natural
    pools, fish of all colors and warm green clean waters. Recife,
    located on the northeast of Brazil, is known as the "Brazilian Venice"
    because of its many canals and waterways and the innumerable bridges
    that span them. It is the major gateway to the of the Brazilian
    Northeast with regular flights to all major cities in Brazil as well
    as Lisbon, London, Frankfurt, and Miami.

    This year, SBIA'02 will be held in conjunction with the VII Brazilian
    Symposium on Neural Networks (SBRN'02). SBRN'02 has its main focus on
    Neural Networks and on other models of computational
    intelligence. Crossfertilization of these fields will be strongly
    encouraged. Both Symposia will feature keynote speeches and tutorials
    by world-leading researchers. More details on paper submission and
    conference registration will be coming soon.

    Paper Submission


    The papers should present substantial new results in theoretical,
    empirical and applied research in all areas of Artificial
    Intelligence. SBIA'02 allows simultaneous submission of papers to
    other conferences, provided that this fact is clearly indicated by the
    authors in the submission process.

    All accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in the
    Lectures Notes in Artificial Intelligence Series. All authors of
    accepted papers will then be required to sign copyright release forms,
    and one author of each accepted paper will be required to attend the
    conference to present the paper. Furthermore, it is the conference
    policy that at least one of the authors of accepted papers has to
    register for SBIA'02. Otherwise, the paper will not be included in the

    Format Papers must be written in English and should be no longer than
    10 pages, including all tables, figures, and references, but excluding
    the cover page. Over-length papers may be rejected without review. It
    is recommended that the authors use the style file of Springer-Verlag
    Lecture Notes ( to minimise the
    possible conflict of paper length when preparing the camera ready.

    Review Process

    All papers received will be cross-reviewed by at least two referees in
    the topical area. The Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by one

    Submission Procedure

    The submission of papers is to be performed through the site This site, generated by the
    CyberChair system ( provides all the
    necessary information about the submission procedure.
