IMPORTANT: This is not a stand alone document. Please use it in
conjunction with another document entitled ``Joint Conference General
Administration.'' SCS'97 is an integral part of JCIS'97.


1. SCS'97 has its own ``plenary speakers'' under ``plenary sessions.''
2. You may attend any parallel sessions in JCIS'97.
3. If you would like to contribute to any topics not listed in this CFP,
please contact Wang or Gu.

Aim and Scope: The primary of this conference is to discuss existing formal methodologies of dealing with large symbolic structures, and to explore new insights associated with the area of modeling, analysis, design, and application of intelligent systems. The secondary goal of this conference is to communicate with other conferences and workshops of JCIS'97 which deal with the advances of fuzzy logic, fuzzy mathematics, neural networks, AI, rough set theory, informatiics, and computer science.

Semiotics is considered a major theoretical approach for explaining and developing tools for modeling intelligent system, a tool which is applicable to a multiplicity of scientific disciplines involved in the study of intelligence, but at the same time, a tool is deeply and intrinsically interlaced with the object to which it is applied.

Semiotics is a very exciting new area of research. Due to the infancy of this newly recognized scientific and technological field, We are open to suggestion and comments. We also welcome proposals for workshop sessions as well as individual contributed papers.

The conference will consist of both plenary sessions and contributory
sessions, focusing on topics of critical interest and the direction of future
research. For contributory sessions, full papers are being solicited. We
welcome you to organize sessions. Example topics include, but are not limited
to, the following:
Topics: First Workshop on Semiotic Analysis and Design of Intelligent Systems
* Intelligent Systems Modeling
* Mathematics Based of Intelligent Systems
* New Mathematics for Semiotic Foundations
* Semiotics of Constructed Complex Systems
* Semiotics of Soft Computing
* Architectures of Semiosis for Intelligent Systems
* Intelligent Agents
* Syntactics of Intelligent Systems
* Computing with Words and Semiotics
* Biologically Inspired Complex Systems
* Computational Semiotics
* Semiotics of Neural Networks
* Measuring Intelligence of Systems
* Semiotic Approach to Information Fusion
* Semiotics of Learning
* Applications of Semiotics in the AI Context
* Multi-level Information Processing
* Sign and Space
* Semiotic Labeled Deductive Systems

Please feel free to contact program committee members for their respective
interested areas, but make sure to send a copy of your proposed sessions or
invited papers to Xiliang Gu for general ``knowledge Base'' of JCIS'97.
