PURPOSE OF THE SYMPOSIUM

This Symposium is intended to attract individuals who are actively engaged both in theoretical and practical aspects of intelligent systems. The goal is to provide a platform for a useful exchange between theoreticians and practitioners, and to foster the cross-fertilization of ideas in the following areas: In addition, we solicit papers dealing with Applications of Intelligent Systems in complex/novel domains, e.g. human genome, global change, manufacturing, health care, etc.

INFORMATION

The High Tatras are located in the mountain-system of the Carpathians, in the very core of Europe, on the southern border of Poland. With their extent of 260 square kilometres only, they are the smallest high mountain massif of the world, showing, however, all characteristic signs of high mountains. One of the characteristics of High Tatras is that even the highest and the most beautiful spots and mountaintops are accessible in a relatively easy, fast and secure way. Lakes, remnants of the Ice Age, are a major attraction, as are caves, of which several are open to tourists. Deer and stag may easily be met in the valleys, as might mountain goats in the crags; marmots are a rarer animal. With a bit of luck, a brown bear or an eagle might be seen. Located in a picturesque valley, Zakopane is Poland's only sub-Tatrian town. The distance from the center of Zakopane to forests and mountain fields is only about an hour's comfortable walk.
Please consult also

The closest Polish airports to reach Zakopane are in Warsaw (about 249 miles) and in Cracow (68 miles). There is also a nearby Slovakian airport in Poprad (31 miles).
The most convenient link with Warsaw is by reserve seat express train (about 6 hours) or by sleeper (about 9 hours). The best way to travel from Cracow is by PKS bus (2 hours). People driving their own cars from Central Poland usually travel through Cracow (Route T-15).
