During the past decade, paradigms and benefits from neuro fuzzy
systems (NF) have been growing tremendously. Today, not only does NF solve
scientific problems, but its applications are also appearing in our
daily lives.

In order to discuss the state of the art in NF and the future of these
exciting topics; we are honored to invite you to Neuro-Fuzzy 2002. We
believe it will be an excellent opportunity to share our knowledge on NF
and contribute to its development in the next century.

This major international conference will be held in a very enjoyable
location: Havana, the Capital of Cuba, where we hope you will experience the
famous Cuban hospitality.

NF'2002 will include invited plenary talks, contributed
sessions, invited sessions, workshops and tutorials.
Updated details are available at


The organization of invited sessions is encouraged. Prospective
organizers are requested to send a session proposal (consisting
of 4-5 invited papers, the recommended session-chair and
co-chair, as well as a short statement describing the title and
the purpose of the session) to the respective symposium chair
or the congress organizer. Invited sessions should preferably
start with a tutorial paper. The registration fee of the session
organizer will be waived, if at least 4 authors of invited
papers register to the conference.


Poster presentations are encouraged for people who wish to
receive peer feedback, and practical examples of applied research
are particularly welcome. Poster sessions will allow the
presentation and discussion of respective papers, which will
also be included in the conference proceedings.


Pre-conference tutorials on specific relevant topics are planned. Proposals
for a tutorial must include the title, topics covered, proposed speakers,
targeted audience and estimated length (preferably 2 or 4 hours). The
proposal must be submitted to the general chair, the scientific program
chair and the congress organizer by May 31, 2001. Tutorial papers of max 15
pages can be included in the conference proceedings.


Interested scientists are encouraged to organize a workshop on their
particular field of research. Workshops consist of several presentations or
open discussions on a specific subject. The proposal must include the title,
the topics covered, the proposed speakers, the targeted audience and the
estimated length. It should be submitted to the general chair, the
scientific program chair and the congress organizer by May 31, 2001. Joint
or edited workshop papers of max 35 pages can be included in the conference


Authors are requested to send an extended abstract, or the full paper of
4 and maximum 7 pages for review, by the International Program Committee.
All submissions must be written in English, starting with a succinct
statement of the problem, the results achieved, their significance and a
comparison with previous work.

Submissions must be received by May 31, 2001. Regular papers,
as well as poster presentations, tutorial papers and invited sessions
are encouraged.

The submission should also include:
- Title of congress (NF'2002),
- Type of paper (workshop, tutorial, invited, regular, poster)
- Authors names, affiliations, addresses
- Name of author to contact for correspondence
- E-mail address and fax # of contact author and co-authors
- Topics which best describe the paper (5 - 10 keywords)
- Short CV of authors (recommended)

Please submit your paper proposal electronically
to the following address: operating@icsc.ab.ca

Data formats: Word, Postscript, PDF.


All accepted and invited papers will be included in the congress
published in print and on CD-ROM by ICSC Academic Press, Canada/Switzerland.
