[German title: Aufruf für Artikel-Beiträge: KES2007, Vietri sul Mare, Italien, 12-14 September 2007 (Translate text to: Deutsch)]

KES2007 11th International Conference on Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems, Vietri sul Mare, Italy (12, 13 and 14 September 2007)

(in conjunction with WIRN 2007 XVII Italian Workshop on Neural Networks)

The conference will consist of keynote talks, paper and poster presentations, invited sessions and workshops, on the applications and theory of Intelligent Systems and related areas. It will constitute a privileged forum in which to present recent research results and to discuss new founding ideas in a totally relaxed atmosphere, where open-mindedness and rigorous argumentation may find a correct equilibrium.


The scope of the conference includes the following topics:

Generic Topics of Interest: Knowledge-Based Systems, Expert Systems, Cognitive Systems, Neural Networks, Artificial Immune Systems, FuzzyTechniques and Systems, Genetic Algorithms and Evolutionary Computing, Hybrid Intelligent Systems, Intelligent Agents and Multi-Agent Systems, Self organizing and complex systems, Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining, Data Analysis and Pattern Recognition, Machine Learning, Bayesian Networks, Knowledge Representation and Management, Computational neuroscience, Planning, Spatial & Temporal Reasoning, Knowledge Acquisition.

Intelligent Applications: Industrial Control, Monitoring and Planning, Fault Diagnosis, Robotics, Image Processing, Machine & Computer Vision, Medical & Diagnostic Systems, Financial & Stock Market Monitoring and Prediction, Speech Processing and Synthesis, Natural Language Processing, Environmental Monitoring, Power Electronics & Drives, High Voltage Systems, Engine Control and Vehicle Applications, Signal and Time Series Processing; Wavelets.

Emerging Intelligent Technologies: Pervasive Computing, Context-aware and Affective (Emotional) Computing, Mobile Computing and Systems, Business Intelligence Systems, Human-centered Computing, Intelligent User Interfaces, Cognitive Interfaces, Userprofiling, Evolvable Hardware, DNA Computing, Immunocomputing, Artificial Life, Bioinformatics using Intelligent & Machine Learning Techniques, Microarray Data Analysis, Intelligent Tutoring Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Information Agents on the Internet, Ecommerce/E-business and E-learning, Semantic Web, Intelligent Web Mining & Applications, Virtual Reality & Multi- Media Intelligent Information Systems, Blind Source Separation. While this list of topics is not exclusive, papers for the conference must include significant intelligent systems content. Papers based only on classical methods without any intelligent systems content will not be accepted.

Papers are invited for KES2007 and WIRN2007 on topics lying within the scope of the conference. All contributions must be high quality, original, should not have been published elsewhere and should not be intended to be published elsewhere during the review period. Contributions from more applied related fields in industry and commerce are very welcome.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in AI as part of the LNCS/LNAI series. When formatting papers, please refer to the Springer-Verlag web site, and strictly follow the Instructions to LNCS Authors.

Please note that the required paper length is eight pages in Springer format. Papers longer than this will be subject to a penalty charge. Papers very much longer or shorter than the required length may be rejected.

To ensure high quality, all papers will be thoroughly reviewed by the conference Programme Committee. Papers may be rejected without being sent to the reviewers if they are too long. Papers may be rejected without being reviewed if it is judged that they do not lie sufficiently within the scope of the conference.

The papers will be scheduled for presentation either orally or by posters, depending on their attributes, author preferences and referee recommendations. The presenter of each poster presentations will be required to give a brief oral snapshot presentation in a scheduled session in order to introduce the poster to the audience and will conclude with personal communications between authors and attendants in front of the poster. Posters are not a second choice presentation medium. Rather, besides the regularly submitted paper, they must be carefully designed to highlight in a very clear way the key points of the research carried out by the authors.

All papers for KES2007 must be submitted in electronic form using the PROSE software review system.

All oral and poster papers must be presented by one of the authors who must register for the conference and pay the fee. Authors are not encouraged to submit multiple papers, and authors will be restricted to one paper per registration.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in the KES Journal (International Journal of Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Engineering Systems) published by IOS Press, see KES Journal
