ELEVENTH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON
METHODOLOGIES FOR INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS

Palace of Staszic, Warsaw, Poland
June 8-11, 1999

SPONSORS

Institute of Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences (ICS PAS)
UNC-Charlotte (UNCC)
Polish-Japanese Institute of Information Technology (PJIIT)
and others

The Symposium is organized by the Institute of Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences (IPIPAN)

PURPOSE OF THE SYMPOSIUM

This Symposium is intended to attract individuals who are actively engaged both in theoretical and practical aspects of intelligent systems. The goal is to provide a platform for a useful exchange between theoreticians and practitioners, and to foster the cross-fertilization of ideas in the following areas:

Evolutionary Computation
Intelligent Information Retrieval
Intelligent Information Systems
Knowledge Representation and Integration
Learning and Knowledge Discovery
Logic for Artificial Intelligence
Methodologies (modeling, design, validation, performance evaluation).
Soft Computing

In addition, we solicit papers dealing with Applications of Intelligent Systems in complex/novel domains, e.g. human genome, global change, manufacturing, health care, etc.
