Second International ICSC Symposium on
To be held at the University of Paisley, Scotland, U.K.
June 27-30, 2000


EIS'2000 is co-sponsored by
The Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE),
The University of Paisley and
ICSC International Computer Science Conventions


The EIS conference series pursue the synthesis of Artificial Intelligence techniques with
Control Engineering methods to produce Intelligent Systems for Engineering applications.
In recent years, the combination of Control Engineering and extensive knowledge of AI techniques has allowed scientists and practitioners to make a number of significant
contributions to this rapidly developing field, for example in qualitative control,
fuzzy qualitative simulation and model based diagnosis, Artificial Neural Networks
(ANNs), Genetic Algorithms (GAs), Fuzzy Logic (FL), and Neuro-Fuzzy Systems (NFS).

The EIS conference series intend to provide researchers and practitioners from industry
and academia with a platform to report on recent developments in the area of intelligent
systems with focus on applications of computational intelligence techniques to
engineering systems. The meeting will also provide a venue for dialogues between
software engineers, systems designers and knowledge engineers.

The first very successful conference in the series was held in Tenerife, in February
1998 and the follow up event will be held in cooperation with the University in Malaga,
Spain, in the year 2002.

Paisley has always been colourful. With a population of over 79,000, it is the largest
town in Scotland, but its scale and character make it a friendly place to study and
live. Today Paisley is home to a diverse range of modern industries including
engineering, chemicals, food, oil, microelectronics and computer systems.

Back in the 19th Century, the town’s fame and prosperity came in the shape of
beautifully patterned Paisley shawls which were made by local weavers and exported
throughout the world. Paisley’s other main industry of the era was thread-making in
massive mills that stood along the banks of the River Cart. Today, there’s an
excellent variety of shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. The Lagoon Leisure
Centre includes saunas, solarium and an Olympic sized ice rink. Regular exhibitions
and events covering every area of the arts add to the town’s cultural calendar. You
can enjoy the great outdoors in numerous parks and gardens including the Gleniffer
Braes Country Park which covers 1300 acres of woodland and moorland.
