Fuzzy-Neuro Systems '97
- Computational Intelligence -
4th International Workshop

12 to 14 March 1997
University of Paderborn, Germany

Fuzzy-Neuro Systems '97 is the fourth event of a well established series of
workshops with international participation. Its aim is to give an overview
of the state of the art in research and development of fuzzy systems and
artificial neural networks. Another aim is to highlight applications of these
methods and to forge innovative links between theory and application by means
of creative discussions.

Fuzzy-Neuro Systems '97 will add evolutionary algorithms to the areas of fuzzy
logic and neural networks in order to show current trends in soft computing
and computational intelligence comprehensively. Interested parties are
especially encouraged to hand in contributions of hybrid systems that combine
advantages of various methods efficiently.

Organizer of this workshop is Research Committee 1.2 "Inference Systems"
(Fachausschuss 1.2 "Inferenzsysteme") of German Society of Computer Science
(Gesellschaft fuer Informatik e. V. (GI)) supported by Research Center
"Sensors/Actuators" (Forschungsschwerpunkt "Sensorik/Aktorik") of Northrhine-
Westfalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen) at University of Paderborn, Department Soest.

Preceding workshops were held in Braunschweig (1993), Munich (1994) and
Darmstadt (1995). Invited plenary speakers were Prof. D. Dubois (Toulouse),
Prof. J. A. Feldman (Berkeley), Dr. H. Hellendoorn (Munich), Prof. L. Koczy
(Tokyo, Budapest), Prof. R. Kruse (Braunschweig), Prof. E. H. Mamdani
(London), Prof. L. A. Zadeh (Berkeley) and Prof. H.-J. Zimmermann (Aachen).

Invited plenary speakers for this workshop will be Prof. J. Bezdek
(Pensacola), Prof. E. P. Klement (Linz), Prof. T. Kohonen (Helsinki), Prof.
W. Pedrycz (Manitoba) and Prof. H.-P. Schwefel (Dortmund).

Conference languages will be German and English.
