Description
**********************

The International Conference on Soft Computing as Transdisciplinary Science and Technology (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. 
CSTST'08 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that demonstrates current research in all areas of soft computing, as well as proposals 
for workshops, industrial presentations, demonstrations, and tutorials.

* 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
