Summary: Guest editorial
Engineers are people who work hard so that the rest of us
can be lazier. The challenge for today's engineers is to build
intelligent systems. We want to have systems that do not
require detailed programming but which can be trained or
learn from experience, which can cope with uncertainty and
can handle ambiguity in linguistic knowledge. We want
them to optimize themselves inheriting good properties
from the previous versions. And we want to use them every-
where, wherever human intelligence is expensive, scarce or
This special issue contains selected papers presented at
the International ICSC Symposium on Engineering of Intel-
ligent Systems (EIS'98) held in La Laguna, Tenerife, Spain
in February 1998. Out of the 205 papers selected for the
symposium, 14 were shortlisted for this special issue
based on the original referee reports and session chairs.
After a strict review by a technical committee, only seven
were finally accepted. The contributions in this special issue
are revised versions of the papers presented at EIS'98, as per
