The Third International Conference on
Intelligent Processing and Manufacturing of Materials

Sunday, July 29th, to Friday, August 3rd, 2001
Hilton Vancouver Airport Hotel, Richmond, British Columbia, Canada <http://mining.ubc.ca/ipmm/>


Cross-Disciplinary Research in IPMM - an Essential Ingredient for Innovation!
IPMM-2001 is the third in a series of bi-annual conferences dedicated to sharing new developments in intelligent
approaches to the processing and manufacturing of materials. The first two IPMM events were held in Australia in 1997
and in Hawaii in 1999. The IPMM Technical Program derives from a wide set of fields including materials science and
engineering, computer science and engineering, mechanical, industrial, electrical, metallurgical, mining and
manufacturing engineering, instrumentation, biological computing, as well as the soft sciences of artificial psychology
and human-machine interfaces. Applications involve soft-computing methods such as fuzzy expert systems, artificial
neural networks, genetic algorithms and evolutionary computation together with conventional approaches such as numerical
methods, optimization techniques, thermodynamic modeling and hybrid methods. IPMM-2001 is being held immediately
following the Joint 9th IFSA World Congress and 20th NAFIPS International Conference which is being held in Vancouver
from July 25th - 28th, 2001. A discount is available for those registering for both events.

The IPMM-2001 Technical Program will consist of Plenary Sessions, Full-Paper Presentations and Poster Sessions. In
addition to contributed papers, a number of invited papers by leading researchers in each field will be featured. All
papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two referees based on quality and content relevant to the conference areas and

Following the main conference, a 2-day workshop is scheduled on Virtual Manufacturing of Materials organized by Dr.
Steven R. LeClair of the Materials Directorate at the Wright-Patterson Airforce Base in Ohio. Participation at this
workshop is by invitation only, although observer registration status will be available. Presentations will be made by
leading experts in manufacturing science, materials property prediction and smart materials in a coordinated effort to
provide a cohesive understanding of this rapidly-expanding field.
KEYNOTE SPEAKERS - as of November 5, 1999.

Opening Plenary Speaker
Lotfi Zadeh, Berkeley Initiative in Soft Computing, University of California, Berkeley, CA

University of British Columbia,
6350 Stores Road, Vancouver, B.C., V4M 1J2, CANADA
TEL: 604-822-3984
FAX: 604-822-5599

Submissions should include the address, phone and FAX numbers, and e-mail address of the principal author. Decisions
will be communicated by Jan. 1, 2001. A 6-page camera-ready paper is due by Feb. 15, 2001 together with the conference
registration fee. The paper format is described on our web site at <http://mining.ubc.ca/ipmm/format.htm/>. Please
indicate if you are submitting a Full Paper or a Poster Paper with 5-min. overview presentation or a Poster Paper with
no presentation.

The conference will be held in Richmond, British Columbia, a suburb of Vancouver. The hotel is located 5 minutes from
the Vancouver International Airport at the Richmond Convention Centre, a facility shared by 3 hotels: The Hilton
(http://www.hilton.com/hotels/YVRAHHF/); The Marriott (http://marriotthotels.com/YVRSA/) and The Best Western Richmond
Inn. (http://richmondinn.com/). All 3 hotels will offer special IPMM-2001 room rates.

Located on the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver has a temperate climate. During July-August, the weather is typically sunny with
a temperature range of 20-28 °C (68-85 °F). With the gentle ocean breeze, there is no humidity. The site is within
walking distance of many fine restaurants, bars, shops, cinemas and nature trails. Downtown Vancouver is a 20-minute
drive to the north while the ferry terminal to Vancouver Island is 20 minutes to the south.

A Dinner Cruise in Vancouver's beautiful English Bay and Coal Harbour will coincide with the annual Symphony of Fire
fireworks competition. An extensive Companions' Program is being planned with tours to Victoria, Stanley Park, Grouse
Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge and the UBC Botanical Gardens and Anthropology Museum. Post conference tours will
include the UBC Advanced Materials and Process Engineering Laboratory, Microsoft Corporation, Ballard Energy Systems,
Highland Valley Copper Mine and the Robotics Laboratory at Simon Fraser University.
