      **** HIS'05 - First Call for Papers ****

      5th International Conference on Hybrid Intelligent Systems (HIS'05)

      November 06-09, 2005
      Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

      Conference URL: http://his05.hybridsystem.com

      Mirror Site: http://www.ica.ele.puc-rio.br/his05

      ***************************************************

      Deadline for Paper Submission: July 1st, 2005

      ***************************************************

      HIS'05 is technically co-sponsored by:

      - IEEE Systems Man and Cybernetics Society
      - International Fuzzy Systems Association (IFSA)
      - European Neural Network Society (ENNS)
      - European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology (EUSFLAT)
      - The World Federation on Soft Computing
      - Brazilian Computing Society (SBC)
      - Brazilian Society for Automation (SBA)

      HIS'05 is organized in cooperation with:
      - IEEE- Computational Intelligence Society

      Hybridization of intelligent systems is a promising research field of
      computational intelligence focusing on synergistic combinations of
      multiple approaches to develop the next generation of intelligent
      systems. A fundamental stimulus to the investigations of Hybrid
      Intelligent Systems (HIS) is the awareness that combined approaches
      will be necessary if the remaining tough problems in artificial
      intelligence are to be solved. Neural computing, machine learning,
      fuzzy logic, evolutionary algorithms, agent-based methods, among
      others, have been established and shown their strength and drawbacks.
      Recently, hybrid intelligent systems are getting popular due to their
      capabilities in handling several real world complexities involving
      imprecision, uncertainty and vagueness.

      HIS'05 builds on the success of previous HIS events: HIS'04 was held
      in Kitakyushu, Japan, HIS'03 in Melbourne, Australia, HIS'02 in
      Santiago, Chile, and HIS'01, the first event, in Adelaide, Australia.
      All events attracted participants from over 30 countries. HIS'05 is,
      therefore, the fifth International Conference that brings together
      researchers, developers, practitioners, and users of soft computing,
      computational intelligence, multi-agents, and several other
      intelligent computing techniques. The objectives of this
      international meeting are to increase the awareness of the research
      community of the broad spectrum of hybrid techniques, to bring
      together AI researchers from around the world to present their
      cutting-edge results, to discuss the current trends in HIS research,
      to develop a collective vision of future opportunities, to establish
      international collaborative opportunities, and as a result to advance
      the state of the art of the field.

      HIS'05 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work that
      demonstrates current research in hybrid intelligent systems research
      and their applications in science, technology, business and commerce.
      Submitted papers have to be original, containing new and original
      results. The assessment criteria will be heavily weighted towards
      originality, potential impact and relevance to HIS'05 themes. All
      papers will be peer reviewed by three independent referees of the
      international program committee of HIS'05.

          5th International Conference on Hybrid Intelligent Systems (HIS'05)

          November 06-09, 2005
          Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

          Conference URL: http://his05.hybridsystem.com

          Mirror Site: http://www.ica.ele.puc-rio.br/his05

          ***************************************************

          Deadline for Paper Submission: July 1st, 2005

          ***************************************************

          HIS'05 is technically co-sponsored by:

          - IEEE Systems Man and Cybernetics Society
          - International Fuzzy Systems Association (IFSA)
          - European Neural Network Society (ENNS)
          - European Society for Fuzzy Logic and Technology (EUSFLAT)
          - The World Federation on Soft Computing
          - Brazilian Computing Society (SBC)
          - Brazilian Society for Automation (SBA)

          HIS'05 is organized in cooperation with:
          - IEEE- Computational Intelligence Society

          Hybridization of intelligent systems is a promising research field of
          computational intelligence focusing on synergistic combinations of
          multiple approaches to develop the next generation of intelligent
          systems. A fundamental stimulus to the investigations of Hybrid
          Intelligent Systems (HIS) is the awareness that combined approaches
          will be necessary if the remaining tough problems in artificial
          intelligence are to be solved. Neural computing, machine learning,
          fuzzy logic, evolutionary algorithms, agent-based methods, among
          others, have been established and shown their strength and drawbacks.
          Recently, hybrid intelligent systems are getting popular due to their
          capabilities in handling several real world complexities involving
          imprecision, uncertainty and vagueness.

          HIS'05 builds on the success of previous HIS events: HIS'04 was held
          in Kitakyushu, Japan, HIS'03 in Melbourne, Australia, HIS'02 in
          Santiago, Chile, and HIS'01, the first event, in Adelaide, Australia.
          All events attracted participants from over 30 countries. HIS'05 is,
          therefore, the fifth International Conference that brings together
          researchers, developers, practitioners, and users of soft computing,
          computational intelligence, multi-agents, and several other
          intelligent computing techniques. The objectives of this
          international meeting are to increase the awareness of the research
          community of the broad spectrum of hybrid techniques, to bring
          together AI researchers from around the world to present their
          cutting-edge results, to discuss the current trends in HIS research,
          to develop a collective vision of future opportunities, to establish
          international collaborative opportunities, and as a result to advance
          the state of the art of the field.

          HIS'05 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work that
          demonstrates current research in hybrid intelligent systems research
          and their applications in science, technology, business and commerce.
          Submitted papers have to be original, containing new and original
          results. The assessment criteria will be heavily weighted towards
          originality, potential impact and relevance to HIS'05 themes. All
          papers will be peer reviewed by three independent referees of the
          international program committee of HIS'05.
