5th 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
Nottingham, United Kingdom, 16-18 December 2004




The 5th International Conference on Recent Advances in Soft Computing,
RASC2004, will be held at Nottingham Trent University on December 16-18,
2004. This international scientific conference 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.

The nature of soft computing is that there is a wide diversity of
techniques and applications and it is hoped that this diversity will be
exhibited in the papers


o Fuzzy Logic and Systems
o Neural Networks
o Genetic Algorithms
o Computational Intelligence
o Hybrid Systems
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 Artificial Intelligence
o Granular Computing
o Learning Algorithms and Training
o Rough Sets and Data Mining

Application areas may include, but are not limited to:

o Engineering Design and Manufacturing
o Financial Services
o Data Analysis
o Signal Processing
o Robots and Agents
o Databases
o Medicine
o Information Systems
o Networking
o Multimedia Systems
o E-commerce and E-learning
o Process Monitoring and Diagnosis

Prospective authors are invited to submit their contribution an on the
topics indicated and others falling within the scope of the conference.
Submitted papers will be refereed by the programme committee of the
conference on the basis of technical quality, relevance to the conference
theme, originality, significance, and clarity.

Paper submissions will be handled electronically. Please use the
Submission Form on the RASC2004 website to submit your paper. Template
files are available on the conference web site to help preparation of the

The author submits each paper on the understanding that if accepted he/she
must prepare the final camera-ready manuscript in time for inclusion in
the proceedings and an author present the paper at the conference. The
paper should not exceed six single-side pages of A4. The proceedings of
the conference will be published and the copyright of the papers assigned
to the publisher. Abstracts will be published in a book accompanied by a
CD containing the full papers in portable document format (PDF).

Similar to the procedure applied in previous RASC events, selected
accepted papers, will be published by the Springer-Verlag group in the
series "Advances in Soft Computing". In view of a considerable interest in
the topics of the conference from various mathematical, technological,
industrial and scientific communities, there will be many post-conference
publications including 2-3 special issues of prestigious journals and an
edited volume to be published by the Springer-Verlag group in the series
"Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing". These publications will contain
extended versions of papers presented at the conference.


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 August 13, 2004. A
session should consist of 4-5 papers.
The registration fee of the session organizer will be waived if at least
four authors of invited papers register to the conference.


RASC2004 invites companies and research institutions interested in soft
computing to take part in the exhibition to be held on December 16-18,
2004. Book publishers who publish in these areas are also welcome. For
further information, please contact the Conference Secretary.
