Fourth International ICSC Symposium on

in collaboration with the University of Madeira
Island of Madeira, Portugal
February 29 – March 2, 2004


in cooperation with IEEE TC
Computational Medicine
Building and applying intelligent systems in health care

Peter Kokol: kokol@uni-mb.si

This conference is organized under the patronage of:
- Drº Alberto João Jardim,
President of the Madeira Government.
- Prof. Dr. Rúben Antunes Capela,
Rector of Madeira University
- Prof. Dr. Ludwig Streit
President of the Mathematical Science Center

Honorary Chairman: Erkki Oja, Finland

Organizing Committee:

General Chair: Ana Isabel Portugal de Almada Cardoso, Madeira


Vice Chair: Tatjana Welzer, Slovenia


Scientific Program Chair: Marjan Druzovec, Slovenia



The problem of engineering of intelligent systems is in fact the science of transferring the methodologies, the knowledge and the experiences from the area of artificial intelligence into the daily life, either directly through the applications or indirectly through basic or applied research.

The conference originated in order to provide a wide forum in which the latest developments in the field could be discussed; so the participants from all countries are warmly welcome. The scope of the

conference as indicated by its topics has been updated to reflect the recent rapid development of the intelligent systems, such as in the area of control systems, decision support systems or artificial life, to mention only a few.

The previous very successful conferences in the series were held in 1998 on Tenerife Island, Spain, in 2000 in Paisley, Scotland, and in 2002 in Malaga, Spain. The success of the previous conferences and the achieved high standard will be reflected also in the coming conference.

Student Paper Competition

As part of this conference we plan to have a Student Paper Competition. Students are encouraged to submit papers that will be peer reviewed. Accepted papers need to be presented at the conference. The organizing committee of the conference will select the two best papers for the award. First prize will be $100 and the second prize $50. Special discounts are available for students to register for the conference and will include CD rom proceedings.

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are requested to either send a draft paper (maximum 7 pages) or an extended abstract (4 pages) for review by the International Program Committee. All submissions must be written in English, starting with a succinct statement of the problem, the results achieved, their significance and a comparison with previous work.

The submission should also include:
- Type of paper (regular, poster, tutorial, invited or dedication to special session)
- Title of proposed paper
- Authors names, affiliations, addresses
- Name of author to contact for correspondence
- E-mail address and fax # of contact author
- Topics which best describe the paper (5 - 10 keywords)
- Short CV of authors
