Call For Papers
Soft Computing provides rapid dissemination of important results in soft computing foundations, methodologies and applications. It encourages the integration of soft computing theoretical and practical results into both everyday and advanced applications. The journal aims to connect the ideas and techniques of soft computing with other disciplines.

Soft Computing is dedicated to system solutions based on soft computing paradigms. It provides rapid dissemination of important results in soft computing, a fusion of research in evolutionary algorithms, genetic programming, swarm intelligence, neural science, neural net systems, fuzzy set theory, fuzzy systems, Bayesian networks, chaos theory, chaotic systems.

By linking the ideas and techniques of soft computing with other disciplines, the journal serves as a unifying platform that fosters comparisons, extensions, and new applications. As a result, the journal is an international forum for all scientists engaged in research and development in this fast growing field.

Soft Computing - Section Foundations

The Section Foundations welcomes original and significant contributions to the mathematical and logical foundations of soft computing, and related areas.

The Section is a forum that aims at promoting, circulating, and stimulating the research on mathematical foundations of soft computing intended in a broad sense as a method for dealing with non crisp information, for instance characterized by the presence of vagueness, imprecisions, high complexity, or uncertainty.

Relevant topics include, but are not limited to,

    Algebra and algebraic logic,
    Computational paradigms and computational complexity
    Description logic, temporal logic, dynamic logic, and modal logic
    Domain theory and type theory
    Fuzzy logic, fuzzy set theory, and many-valued logic
    Substructural logic
    Probability logic, belief functions, etc.

Soft Computing – Section Methodologies and Applications

The Section M&A aims at promoting and stimulating the research in the field of the development of enhanced computational systems based on innovative or consolidated soft computing methodologies such as Fuzzy Logic, Neural Networks and Evolutionary Algorithms. Under this perspective, particular attention is given to hybrid and agent-based systems i.e., computational frameworks that use different soft computing approaches in a synergic way in order to face the intrinsic complexities characterizing real environments and exploit imprecise and vague information which strongly characterizes real-world scenarios. As consequence, this journal section seeks original research contributions with a focus on applications belonging but not limited to following areas:

    computer networks,
    data mining,
    image and video processing,
    intelligence agents,
    machine learning,
    pattern recognition,
    web intelligence.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Advanced Computer Science and Applications for Soft Computing of Converged IT environments
Submission Date: 2017-08-30

This special issue is to gather new soft computing trends and methodological recent advances on a wide range of problems arising in different fields to handle practical data of converged environment. Many advanced computational methods have been successfully applied to a range of optimization and classification problems in soft computing, but there are still many practical problems tackled by traditional methods that are generally difficult to solve experimentally in practical converged data. More specifically, many computational problems arising in fields of scientific programming have been addressed in AI, HPC, large-scale data mining and etc that handles practical converged data. Submissions are welcomed on scientific programming applied to optimization in practical data. We invite researchers and practitioners to submit their original research articles and theoretical articles. This special issue is soliciting high quality technical papers addressing research practices and challenges in the areas of ubiquitous computing. It will reflect the state-of-the-art of the computational methods, involving theory, algorithm, numerical simulation, error and uncertainty analysis and/or novel application of new processing techniques in engineering, science, and other disciplines related to ubiquitous computing. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: - Mobile and ubiquitous computing - Dependable, reliable and autonomic computing - Security and trust management - Multimedia systems and services - Networking and communications - Database and data mining - Game and software engineering - Grid and scalable computing - Embedded system and software - Artificial intelligence - Distributed and parallel algorithms - Web and internet computing - IT policy and business management
