The international conference on computational Intelligence for modelling,
control and automation will be held in Vienna, Austria on 17-19 February
1999. The conference provides a medium for the exchange of ideas between
theoreticians and practitioners to address the important issue in
computational intelligence, modelling, control and automation.

The conference will consist of both plenary sessions and contributory
sessions, focusing on theory, implementation and applications of
computational intelligence techniques to modelling, control and automation.
For contributory sessions, extended abstract papers are being solicited.
Several well-known keynote speakers will address the conference. Topics
include, but are not limited to, the following area:

Modern and Advanced Control Strategies:
Neural Networks Control, Fuzzy Logic Control, Genetic Algorithms &
Evolutionary Control, Model-Predictive Control, Adaptive and Optimal
