      SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT

      3rd CONFERENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR ECOLOGICAL
      INFORMATICS (ISEI)
      Villa Grazioli Park Hotel, Grottaferrata (Rome), Italy,
      26-30 August 2002

      ORGANISING COMMITTEE
      Michele Scardi, University of Bari, Italy (mscardi@...)
      Friedrich Recknagel, Adelaide University, Australia
      (Friedrich.Recknagel@...)
      Sovan Lek, University of Toulouse, France (lek@...)

      KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
      Alan H. Fielding, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
      Peter T. Hraber, Santa Fe Institute, USA
      Sven E. Jorgensen, University Park 2, Copenhagen, Denmark
      Samuel Kaski, Helsinki University of Technology, Finland

      OBJECTIVES
      Both the design and management of ecological databases and
      their exploration by machine learning computation for
      ecosystem analysis, synthesis and prediction appear as
      features of the newly emerging discipline: Ecological
      Informatics.
      The conference will provide a forum for the promotion and
      discussion of recent research and future developments in
      Ecological Informatics. It will focus on the design and
      application of biologically inspired computational
      techniques for ecological analysis, synthesis and forecasting.
      The aim of the conference is to encourage and facilitate
      interdisciplinary communication and research amongst
      professionals in computer science, machine learning
      computation, ecosystem research and management.
      Some of the themes on which the conference will focus in
      specialised sessions are:
      o nonlinear regression, ordination and visualization of
      ecological data by artificial neural networks;
      o ecological time series analysis and prediction by
      artificial neural networks;
      o discovery of predictive rules and equations for ecosystem
      processes by evolutionary algorithms;
      o ecological data mining by machine learning computation;
      o discovery and forecasting of emergent ecosystem structures
      and behaviours by adaptive agents;
      o ecological applications of pattern recognition and
      classification of microscopic, macroscopic and remotely
      sensed images by machine learning computation;
      o ecological perspective of fuzzy logic, cellular automata
      and artificial life;
      o expert systems and decision support systems in
      environmental management.

      A special session will focus on applications to freshwater
      ecology. This session will be organised in the framework of
      an EU 5th Framework project that deals with this kind of
      applications (PAEQANN - Predicting Aquatic Ecosystem Quality
      using Artificial Neural Networks: impact of environmental
      characteristics on the structure of aquatic communities
      (algae, benthic and fish fauna) -
      http://www-cesac.cemes.fr/~paeqann/%5d.

      CALL FOR PAPERS
      Papers are invited on the topics outlined above and others
      that fall within the general scope of the conference.
      Abstracts should be submitted by December 31, 2001 to the
      conference Organising Committee, together with the
      registration form.
      The registration form and more details about the conference
      are available at the conference web site: http://www.isei3.org
