INTRODUCTION
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The 5th International Conference on Recent Advances in Soft Computing,
RASC2004, will be held at Nottingham Trent University on December
16-18, 2004. This international scientific conference is intended to
provide a forum for researchers and engineers to report key
advancements and exchange state-of-the-art knowledge and experience in
the field of "Soft Computing". The conference will cover the theory
and application of soft computing techniques namely: Fuzzy Logic and
Systems, Neural Networks, Hybrid Systems, Genetic Algorithms,
Evolutionary Computing, Smart Adaptive Systems, and Intelligent
Systems.
The organising committee of the conference encourages young
researchers and research students to participate in this
non-commercial event by offering discounted registration fees.
The nature of soft computing is that there is a wide diversity of
techniques and applications and it is hoped that this diversity will
be exhibited in the papers accepted.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Prospective authors are invited to submit their contribution an on the
topics indicated and others falling within the scope of the
conference. Submitted papers will be refereed by the programme
committee of the conference on the basis of technical quality,
relevance to the conference theme, originality, significance, and
clarity.
Paper submissions will be handled electronically. Please use the
Submission Form on the RASC2004 website to submit your paper. Template
files are available on the conference web site to help preparation of
the manuscript.
The author submits each paper on the understanding that if accepted
he/she must prepare the final camera-ready manuscript in time for
inclusion in the proceedings and an author present the paper at the
conference. The paper should not exceed six single-side pages of A4.
The proceedings of the conference will be published and the copyright
of the papers assigned to the publisher. Abstracts will be published
in a book accompanied by a CD containing the full papers in portable
document format (PDF).
Similar to the procedure applied in previous RASC events, selected
accepted papers, will be published by the Springer-Verlag group in the
series "Advances in Soft Computing". In view of a considerable
interest in the topics of the conference from various mathematical,
technological, industrial and scientific communities, there will be
many post-conference publications including 2-3 special issues of
prestigious journals and an edited volume to be published by the
Springer-Verlag group in the series "Studies in Fuzziness and Soft
Computing". These publications will contain extended versions of
papers presented at the conference.
