International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2006

Hong Kong, 20-22 June, 2006


The 2006 IAENG International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Applications (IWAIA'06)


The IWAIA'06 workshop is held as part of the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2006. The IMECS 2006 is organized by the International Association of Engineers (IAENG), and serves as good platforms for the engineering community members to meet with each other and to exchange ideas. Extended version of the papers under this workshop can be included in the special issue of our journal Engineering Letters. And, further extended version can also be included in a book called "Current Trends in Artificial Intelligence and Applications" to be published by IAENG.
