Announcement and Call for papers
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Announcement

The ELITE Foundation (European Laboratory for Intelligent
Techniques Engineering) is pleased to announce EUFIT '96 - The
Fourth European Congress on Intelligent Techniques and Soft
Computing. EUFIT '96 aims to bring together scientists and practitioners
from academic, governmental, and industrial institutions to discuss new
developments and results in the field of intelligent technologies.

The congress will take place in Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle), Germany, on
September 2-5, 1996. In Aachen the charme of 1,200 years of history
merges with the most advanced technological research. Charlemagne,
the then Emperor of Europe, resided in the medieval Aachen in the 8th
century and in our times the "RWTH", one of the largest European
Institutes of Technology, is located here.

The conference will be composed of plenary presentations, semi-plenary
sessions, panel sessions, invited and contributed sessions, and other
events. There will be parallel and interactive sessions. They include
scientific and applied presentations in Fuzzy Technology, Neural
Networks, and Genetic Algorithms. In interactive sessions speakers can
communicate freely with the interested audience up to 60 minutes.

Plenary talks will be given by:

James C. Bezdek, University of Florida, USA
Computational Intelligence: New Developments

Ebrahim H. Mamdani, Imperial College London, UK
Future Perspectives of Intelligent Systems in Industry

Lotfi A. Zadeh, BISC, University of Berkeley, USA
Computing with Words

Topics covered by the conference will be:

1. Basics of Fuzzy Set Theory and Uncertainty Modeling
2. Neural Networks - Basics and Applications
3. Genetic Algorithms and Evolutionary Computing
4. Fuzzy Sets in Artificial Intelligence
5. Neural-Fuzzy Systems and Learning
6. Fuzzy Databases and Information Retrieval
7. Fuzzy Control - Methodology and Applications
8. Decision Support Systems
9. Data Analysis and Signal Processing
10. Pattern Recognition and Image Processing
11. Applications in Process Industry and Production Planning
12. Medicine and Biomedical Applications
13. Financial Engineering and Forecasting
14. Software, Hardware, and Standards
15. Panel Discussions on Intelligent Applications in Industry
