IDEAL 2002, Third International Conference on
Intelligent Data Engineering and Automated Learning

Call for Papers

12-14 August, 2002
Manchester, UK

ideal at umist.ac.uk

IDEAL is a biennial conference dedicated to emerging and challenging topics
in intelligent data analysis and engineering and their associated learning
paradigms.  Following the highly successful IDEAL'98 and IDEAL'00
conferences held in Hong Kong, the third conference in this series will
bring together researchers, scientists and practitioners from all over the
world to present their findings, to exchange ideas, and to share their
successes.  IDEAL is an ideal forum for revealing and developing the latest
theoretical advances and practical applications in intelligent data
engineering and automated learning.  The main themes of the conference are
Document Analysis and Management, Data Mining and Fusion, Financial
Engineering, Agents, and Bioinformatics. IDEAL'02 will be held at UMIST
(University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology), Manchester,
UK, a university with a reputation of innovation and a long history in
leading research and development. Manchester is the birthplace of the
industrial revolution, the computer revolution and many developments in
artificial intelligence. The conference is organised in collaboration with
the IEEE Neural Networks Council.
