      6th International Conference on
      R E C E N T A D V A N C E S I N S O F T C O M P U T I N G
      10, 11, 12 July 2006, Canterbury, Kent, United Kingdom

      HOSTED BY the:
      Department of Electronics, University of Kent

      SPONSORED BY the:

      www.rasc2006.org or www.rasc2006.org.uk
      The 6th International Conference on Recent Advances in Soft
      Computing, RASC2006, will be hosted by the Department of Electronics
      at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK, on 10, 11 and 12 July

      RASC 2006 is intended to provide a forum for researchers and
      engineers to report key advancements and exchange state-of-the-art
      knowledge and experience in the field of "Soft Computing". The
      conference will cover the theory and application of soft computing
      techniques namely; Fuzzy Logic and Systems, Neural Networks, Hybrid
      Systems, Genetic Algorithms, Evolutionary Computing, Smart Adaptive
      Systems, and Intelligent Systems.

      The organising committee of the conference encourages young
      researchers and research students to participate in this non-
      commercial event by offering discounted registration fees.

      RASC 2006 - SPECIAL THEME: Computational Intelligence in Multiple
      Classifier Systems
      This year RASC will have also a special theme which will focus on the
      use of intelligent techniques for multi-source information processing
      and fusion, such as the recently introduced multiple classifier
      systems, with particular focus on applications of such system which
      can exemplify the need for diverse intelligent algorithms to address
      particular complex domains. Examples of such domains can be found
      within the field of visual information processing and related
      engineering applications, such as the biometrics-based systems
      identification / authentication security systems.

      By its nature soft computing encompasses a wide diversity of
      techniques and applications and it is hoped that this diversity will
      be exhibited in the papers accepted. Topics of interest include, but
      are not limited to:
      o Fuzzy Logic and Systems
      o Multiple Classifier Systems
      o Ensembles of Classifiers
      o Neural Network Ensembles
      o Neural Networks
      o Biologically Inspired Algorithms

      o Evolutionary Computing
      o Smart Engineering
      o Smart Adaptive Systems
      o Intelligent Control Systems
      o Neuro-Fuzzy Systems
      o Fuzzy Decision Making
      o Genetic Programming
      o Fuzzy Modelling
      o Optimization
      o Learning Algorithms and Training
      o Rough Sets and Data Mining

      Application areas may include, but are not limited to:

      o Intelligent Biometrics
      o Multimodal Biometrics
      o Intelligent techniques in Image Processing
      o Artificial Intelligence in Computer Vision

      o Notification of Acceptance: March 30, 2006

      o Final Manuscript Due: April 30, 2006

      o Special Session Proposal: March 30, 2006

      o Early Registration Deadline: May 15, 2006

      o Conference: July 10 - 12, 2006

      Proposal for special sessions or workshops are welcome. Prospective
      organisers are requested to send a session proposal to the Chair of
      the conference as soon as possible and not later than March 30, 2006.
      A session should consist of 4-5 papers. The registration fee of the
      session organizer will be waived, if at least 4 authors of invited
      papers register to the conference.
