In Cooperation with Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence

ISMIS has established a prestigious tradition by organizing a leading
international conference on intelligent systems. The conference
provides a unique opportunity for exchanging scientific research and
technological achievements accomplished by the international
community. The previous events were held in Knoxville, Tennessee
(1986, 1990), Charlotte, North Carolina (1987, 1989, 1991, 1994, 1997,
2000), 
Turin (1988), Trondheim (1993), Zakopane (1996), Warsaw (1999), Lyon
(2002).

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:

   Active Media Human-Computer Interaction
   Autonomic and Evolutionary Computation 
   Intelligent Agent Technology
   Intelligent Information Retrieval 
   Intelligent Information Systems 
   Knowledge Representation and Integration 
   Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining 
   Logic for Artificial Intelligence 
   Soft Computing 
   Web Intelligence  

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.

Proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in LNCS/LNAI
(Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence)
and will be available at the symposium.
