Call for Papers
Neuro-Fuzzy Applications Track
17th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2002)
March 10-14, 2002
Madrid, Spain

SAC 2002
For the past fifteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has been
a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers,
software engineers, and application developers from around the world to
interact and present their work. SAC 2002 is sponsored by the ACM Special
Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP). SAC 2002 is presented in
cooperation with other special interest groups. SAC 2002 will be hosted by
the Universidad Carlos III De Madrid, Spain, from March 10 - 14, 2002. Form

Neuro-Fuzzy Application Track
Recently, however, a tide of new applications is being fostered by the
necessity of dealing with imprecision and vagueness in the context of a new
generation of complex systems, such as telecommunication networks, software
systems, data processing systems and the like. A common feature of these new
systems is the fact that traditional fuzzy techniques (e.g. rule-based
systems) are becoming fully integrated with neural network processing in the
general framework of a soft computing approach to give approximate solutions
to complex problems that proved too difficult to attack with other

The Neuro-Fuzzy Applications Track, without neglecting traditional fuzzy
applications, will focus on this new generation of neuro-fuzzy systems, both
from the point of view of the computer scientist and (perhaps more
importantly) from the point of view of the expert of the involved
application field.

Topics we intend to cover include (but are not limited to):

IP/ATM,Mobile,Active Networks
Neural Hardware Systems
Neural Control
Neuro-Fuzzy Processing of Multimedia Data
Neuro-Fuzzy Systems in Molecular Computing
Soft-Computing Techniques for Systems Design
Flexible Query and Information Retrieval Systems
Data Mining
Computer Vision
Fuzzy Hardware Systems
Fuzzy Control

Paper submission
Authors are invited to contribute original papers in all areas of soft
computing and fuzzy applications development for the technical sessions. and
demos of new innovative systems. Papers must be submitted to one of the
Track Chairs in 3 copies. In order to facilitate blind review, submitted
papers should carry the authors' names and affiliations on a separate sheet.
Authors must follow the Symposium's general Submission Guidelines. For
electronic submissions, please contact the Track Chair in advance. All
papers will be blindly reviewed for originality and accuracy.

Conference Proceedings and Journal Publication
Accepted papers in all categories will be published in SAC 2002 Proceedings.
Expanded versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in
the ACM SIGAPP Applied Computing Review (SIGAPP ACR). A special section with
the best papers from SAC 2002 Fuzzy Track is planned to appear on Springer's
Soft Computing international journal.
