Workshop Program (PDF)

Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA 2001) is an International workshop that brings together international  Soft Computing (SC) / AI researchers, developers, practitioners, and users. The aim of ISDA 2001 is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange research ideas in this field.

ISDA 2001 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that demonstrate current research in all areas of AI  including design of artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary algorithms, hybrid intelligent systems, and their applications in science, technology, business and commercial. 

Main topics

Topics of interest include but not limited to:

Artificial Neural Networks

  • Mathematical foundations of neural networks, architectures and algorithms.

  • Learning theory (supervised/unsupervised/reinforcement learning)
