    During the past decade, paradigms and benefits from neuro fuzzy
    systems (NF) have been growing tremendously. Today, not only does NF solve
    scientific problems, but its applications are also appearing in our
    daily lives.

    In order to discuss the state of the art in NF and the future of these
    exciting topics; we are honored to invite you to Neuro-Fuzzy 2002. We
    believe it will be an excellent opportunity to share our knowledge on NF
    and contribute to its development in the next century.

    This major international conference will be held in a very enjoyable
    location: Havana, the Capital of Cuba, where we hope you will experience the
    famous Cuban hospitality.
