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 tutorial proposals. Papers are submitted in electronic form as PDF-files through the conference web site. Authors are also encouraged to submit multi-media demonstrations (including software etc.)
