SCOPE

The ICANNGA series of Conferences has been organised since 1993 and has a long history of promoting the principles and understanding of computational intelligence paradigms within the scientific community and is a reference for established workers in this area. The series has also been of value to young researchers wishing both to extend their knowledge and experience and also meet established workers in their fields.

The 2005 Conference, the seventh in the ICANNGA series, will take place at the University of Coimbra in Portugal, drawing on the experience of previous events, and following the same general model, combining technical sessions, including plenary lectures by renowned scientists, with tutorials and workshop panels.

In a rapidly advancing world, where technology and engineering change dramatically, new challenges in modern informatics compel us to broaden the Conference themes in order to take into account new developments. Nevertheless we have kept the acronym ICANNGA, which now stands for International Conference on Adaptive and Natural ComputiNG Algorithms
