CF WORKSHOP PROPOSALS: CSTST'08 - Soft Computing as Transdisciplinary Science and Technology



The CSTST 2008 (The International Conference on Soft Computing as 
Transdisciplinary Science and Technology) will be held in Paris 
(Cergy Pontoise), France from Sunday 26th Octobor to Thursday 30th 
Octobor, 2008. CSTST'08 brings together international soft 
computational intelligence researchers, developers, practitioners, 
and users. The aim of CSTST (previously called WSTST) is to serve 
as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange
research ideas in this field. 

Proposals for workshops are invited for consideration in CSTST 2008. 
The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting 
novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the 
conferences themselves. As such, they also offer a good opportunity 
for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback 
from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be 
determined by the organizers, but it is expected that they contain 
ample time for general discussion. The preference is for one-day 
workshops, but other schedules will also be considered.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit workshop proposals 
to the CSTST 2008 Workshop co-chair, Yinghua Ma (, 
NO LATER THAN April 15, 2008.  Submission can be made in 
Postscript, PDF, or ASCII with "CSTST08 Workshop Submission" 
in the subject header. Proposals must be about 2--5 pages long and include:
  * Name of workshop;
  * Summary;
  * Topics;
  * Organizers (attach short CVs, limit of 2 pages each);
  * The expected number of attendees and the planned length of the workshop.
  * The names of potential participants, such as program committee members.
  * Expected submission and acceptance rate (workshops only);
  * Type (academic and/or industrial) and number of expected participants;
  * Significance in relation to topics of the main conference and details 
    of previous workshops.
  * The URL of the workshop web site.

Workshop proposals are reviewed based on the quality of the 
proposal, its relation to the main conference topics, and the likelihood 
to attract enough participants. Notification of acceptance will be made 
by April 30, 2008. 

Topics of CSTST 2008(not limited to):
* Information and Data Management
* Intelligent Hybrid Systems
* Fusion of Soft and Hard Computing 
* Data and Web Mining 
* Decision Support Systems
* Natural Language Processing
* Intelligent Agent-based Systems, Cognitive and Reactive Distributed AI Systems
* Internet Modeling
* Multimedia Information Systems
* Information Retrieval
* Human-Computer Interface
* XML-based Languages
* Security and Access Control
* Information Content Security
* Mobile, Ad Hoc and Sensor Network Management
* Applications    
    o E-Learning, eCommerce, eBusiness and eGovernment 
    o Image and speech signal processing, prediction, and control
    o Robotics
    o Biology and medicine
    o Business and management
    o Artificial societies
    o Chemicals, pharmaceuticals and materials
    o Environment engineering

Proceedings of all CSTST'08 workshops are to be published as a single 
volume to be distributed at the conference. All the workshop papers 
should be limited to 6 pages in ACM format. Extended versions of the 
selected papers will be published in one of the following reviewed 
journals(Journal of Information Assurance and Security (JIAS) or 
International Journal of Computational Intelligence Research).

Any further information needed for preparing a workshop proposal can 
be obtained by sending email to one of the workshops co-chairs: 
Yinghua MA ( and/or Hiroshi Ishikawa
