The Faculty of Computer Science of the Technische Universitaet Dresden, 
Germany, will appoint a new Full Professor (C4) for Intelligent Systems
on the 1st October 2005. The successful applicant will represent the 
area of intelligent systems. In particular, the applicant should be
prepared to represent and develop an area where sensor information 
is applied to guide intelligent systems in the natural world. The
applicant should have an international reputation in at least one of
the following subject areas, or related specialisations: Perception,
Communication, Autonomy, Machine Learning and Uncertainty.

The teaching responsibilities include teaching in German and English
on the subjects covered by the faculty. Furthermore, the applicant 
is expected to participate in the undergraduate education and in
general events with other faculties, and also participate in the
self-administration of the faculty and the Technische Universitaet. 

Assuming that internationally recognised theoretical/systematic
research achievements from at least one of the above topics is
satisfied, value will be placed on experience with large projects 
in international cooperations, experience in the application of
scientific results, notable teaching ability and either a habilitation
or comparable academic achievements. The applicant should also meet the 
employment requirements described in the Saechsiches Hochschulgesetz 
(Saxony education law) from 11th July 1999.

Women are especially encouraged to apply. Applications from the
severely handicapped are considered preferentially compared to
applicants of similar ability. Applications should be made with a
photograph, and be supported with a chronological curriculum vitae,
description of scientific and professional development, list of
scientific works, a choice of three essential publications and
authenticated copies of the certificate of the highest academic degree

Stipends available for  MSc Intelligent Systems

We are pleased to announce that for eligible EU students we have
obtained funding to offer a bursary for our MSc Intelligent Systems
October 2004 entry worth up to 9.000 EURO as fee waiver and stipend.

***Please forward to  students who may be interested.***

The School of Computing and Technology, University of Sunderland is
delighted to announce the launch of its new MSc Intelligent Systems
programme for October 2004. Building on the School's leading edge
research in intelligent systems this masters programme will be funded
via the ESF scheme (see below).

Intelligent Systems is an exciting field of study for science and
industry since the currently existing computing systems have often not
yet reached the various aspects of human performance. "Intelligent
Systems" is a term to describe software systems and methods that 
simulate aspects of intelligent behaviour. The intention is to learn
from nature and human performance in order to build more powerful
computing systems. The aim is to learn from cognitive science,
neuroscience, biology, engineering, and linguistics for building more
powerful computational system architectures. In this programme a wide
variety of novel and exciting techniques will be taught including
neural networks, intelligent robotics, machine learning, natural
language processing, vision, evolutionary genetic computing, data
mining, information retrieval, Bayesian computing, knowledge-based
systems, fuzzy methods, and hybrid intelligent architectures.

The Bursary Scheme applies to this Masters programme commencing
October 2004 and we have obtained funding through the European Social
Fund that enables the University to waive the normal tuition fee and
provide a bursary for eligible EU students, together up to 6000 pounds
or about 9000 Euro.

Subject: New Book: Pattern Recognition Algorithms for Data Mining
Date: Wed, 25 Aug 2004 11:12:15 +0530 (IST)

We are pleased to announce the publication of the book: Pattern
Recognition Algorithms for Data Mining: Scalability, Knowledge
Discovery, and Soft Granular Computing by Sankar K. Pal and Pabitra
Mitra, Chapman Hall/CRC Press, Boca raton, FL, May 2004.

For more details visit the link:
And search for the book title.

The book addresses different pattern recognition tasks in a unified 
framework with both theoretical and experimental results.Tasks
covered include data condensation, feature selection, case generation,
clustering/classification, and rule generation and evaluation. This
volume presents various theories, methodologies, and algorithms, using
both classical approaches and hybrid paradigms. The authors emphasize
large data sets with overlapping, intractable, or nonlinear boundary
classes, and data sets that demonstrate granular computing in soft

Organized into eight chapters, the book begins with an introduction to
concepts from pattern recognition, data mining, and knowledge discovery. 
The authors analyze the tasks of multi-scale data condensation and
dimensionality reduction, then explore the problem of learning with
support vector machines. They conclude by highlighting the significance 
of granular computing for different mining tasks in a soft paradigm.
