research and development in the areas of intelligent systems in:

- providing a forum for the introduction and discussion of new research
results and technologies
- encouraging the exchange of ideas and experiences in the development of
artificial intelligence applications
- providing a forum for practitioners to review and evaluate new results,
tools and methods in the areas of intelligent systems development
- providing a forum for researchers to become exposed to practical problems
in the development of intelligent systems

This conference is designed to fulfil the needs of a diverse body of
attendees, including: researchers, practitioners/developers, users,
educators, system managers, and product vendors. The focus of the
conference is on discovering and exploiting new opportunities afforded by
