General Information about WSC9:

Original papers and tutorials are invited for the 9th Online World
Conference on
Soft Computing in Industrial Applications (WSC9) to be held on the
Internet. WSC9
aims at bringing together outstanding research and developments in the
field of soft
computing (evolutionary computation, fuzzy logic, neural networks, and
their fusion)
and its applications across the world with the goal to publish
high-quality research
quickly and with less cost. Accepted papers of WSC9 will be published as
an edited
volume by Springer Verlag, Germany after the conference. Moreover,
extended versions
of selected papers of the conference will also be invited for a "fast track"
submission for the Elsevier Science Applied Soft Computing Journal.

We aim to have inspiring discussions between the authors and participants,
and make
them visible to everyone on the Internet. There will be a number of mirror
sites
around the world to make easier the access to this major event. Please
note that the
registration is open to everyone and it is completely free of charge.

June 04th, 2004
Deadline for submissions of regular papers, online survey paper proposals
and online
