*** The 3rd International Workshop on Hybrid Artificial Intelligence
Systems  (HAIS08) combines symbolic and sub-symbolic techniques to
construct more robust and reliable problem solving models. Hybrid
intelligent systems are becoming popular due to their capabilities in
handling many real world complex problems, involving imprecision,
uncertainty and vagueness, high-dimensionality. They provide us with the
opportunity to use both, our knowledge and row data to solve problems in
a more interesting and promising way.
HAIS08 provides an interesting opportunity to present and discuss the
latest theoretical advances and real-world applications in this
multidisciplinary research field. 

*** TOPICS ***
Topics are encouraged, but not limited to, the combination of at least
two of the following areas in the field of Hybrid Intelligent Systems:
Fusion of soft computing and hard computing
Evolutionary Computation
Visualization Techniques
Ensemble Techniques
Data mining and decision support systems
Intelligent agent-based systems (complex systems), cognitive and
Reactive distributed AI systems
Internet modelling
Human interface
Case base reasoning
Chance discovery
Applications in security, prediction, control, robotics, image and
speech signal processing, food industry, biology and medicine, business
and management, knowledge management, artificial societies, chemicals,
pharmaceuticals, geographic information systems, materials and
environment engineering and so on. 

HAIS'08 proceedings will be published by Springer in its series of
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence - LNAI (part of its prestigious
Lecture Notes in Computer Science - LNCS series).
All submissions will be refereed by experts in the field based on
originality, significance, quality and clarity. Every submitted paper to
HAIS08 will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee.
Papers must be prepared according to the LNCS-LNAI style template (only
MS-WORD format) (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and must
be no more than eight (8) pages long, including figures and bibliography. 

The HAIS?08 has teamed up with the
ISSN: 0020-0255
Topic: Nature-inspired Hybrid Artificial Intelligent Systems and
2. International Journal on Computational Intelligence Research (IJCIR),
for publishing a Special Issue
Published by Research India Publications, India.
