International Conference on Computational Intelligence

May 25 - 27, 1999

Dortmund, Germany

First Announcement and Call for Papers


Fuzzy Days in Dortmund were held for the first time in
1991. Initially, the conference was intended for scientists and
practitioners as a platform for discussions on theory and application
of fuzzy logic. Early on, synergetic links with neural networks were
included and the conference evolved gradually to embrace the full
spectrum of what is now called Computational Intelligence
(CI). Therefore it seemed logical to launch the 4th Fuzzy Days in 1994
as a conference for CI - one of the world's first conferences
featuring fuzzy logic, neural networks and evolutionary algorithms
together in one event. Following this highly successful tradition, the
6th Fuzzy Days' aim is to provide once again an international forum
for reporting significant results on the theory and application of
CI-methods. Emphasis shall also be put on the potentials resulting
from their combinations.

For the first time a special track on industrial applications will be
held to underline the relevance of CI to real-world problems.
Selected by a committee comprising people with an outstanding
industrial background, these reports will highlight the advan-tages of
CI-methods for enterprises.

Again, ITG, GMM, GMA and GI, the well-known German societies which
represent a considerable number of engineers and computer scientists,
are co-organising and supporting the conference. Further support will
be provided by a number of German and international institutions.


Authors are invited to contribute original papers on theoretical
results or innovative applications. Major topics of interest include,
but are not limited to

- Fuzzy Control
- Fuzzy Decision Making and Optimising
- Fuzzy Systems and Hardware
- Fuzzy Image Analysis
- Neural Networks
- Fuzzy Neural Networks
- Evolutionary Strategies
- Genetic Algorithms
- Sub-symbolic Learning

Proposals for posters are also invited. All submissions will be
subject to peer review. In accordance with the tradition set by its
predecessors it is intended o publish the conference proceedings by

Tutorials and Exhibition

Pre-Conference Tutorials

Prior to the conference several tutorials will be given, addressing
persons who are interested both in the fundamentals and the
application of CI-methods to real-world problems. There will be
introductory as well as advanced tutorials. Any one who likes to
organise a tutorium is kindly requested to send a proposal to the
Conference Secretariat by January 8, 1999.


A presentation of hardware, software tools and applications in the
domain of CI will take place as an integral part of the Fuzzy Days.
Persons interested in participating are kindly invited to contact the
Conference Secretariat.
