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

Call for Papers

12-14 August, 2002
Manchester, 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.
