Organized by:

1st International Workshop on Artificial Neural Networks: data preparation techniques and application development (ANNs 2004)
(a technical workshop on developing ANN systems)

August 24 - 25, 2004
Setúbal, Portugal

In conjunction with the International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation
and Robotics - ICINCO 2004
Waseem Asrar Ahmed
NED University of Engineering & Technology, Pakistan

Neural Networks offer solution in areas of Classification, Prediction, Diagnosis, etc. Neural Computing may be useful for Banks (credit card use and counterfeit check), Stock Exchanges (prediction of rates), Airlines (prediction of turnout of customers), Meteorology (weather forecasting), Hospitals (diagnosis of diseases), Oil & Gas (predict their presence), Product Development & Monitoring, etc.

Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the following main topic areas:

Theory and Algorithms
