the 2004 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence. All accepted
and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings. Please
see instructions below.




Methods (include but are not limited to):

- artificial neural networks (all paradigms)

- support vector machines 

- support vector regression

- related & hybrid soft computing methods


Applications (include but are not limited to):

- business forecasting & demand planning

- time series prediction 

- knowledge discovery in databases

- data mining (temporal & structural)

   - regression

   - classification

   - association

   - clustering / segmentation



Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (7 pages IEEE
style or 5 pages, single space, font size 12) electronically to the special
