Call For Papers
Applied Soft Computing is an international journal promoting an integrated view of soft computing to solve real life problems. Soft computing is a collection of methodologies, which aim to exploit tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty and partial truth to achieve tractability, robustness and low solution cost. The focus is to publish the highest quality research in application and convergence of the areas of Fuzzy Logic, Neural Networks, Evolutionary Computing, Rough Sets and other similar techniques to address real world complexities.

Applied Soft Computing is a rolling publication: articles are published as soon as the editor-in-chief has accepted them. Therefore, the web site will continuously be updated with new articles and the publication time will be short.

Major Topics:

Special Issue on Quantum Inspired Soft Computing for Intelligent Data Processing
Submission Date: 2022-07-31

Soft Computing techniques are generally used to handle the immense amount of uncertainty exhibited in real-world observations, which the classical techniques often fail to address especially when it comes to handling the inherent uncertainties and ambiguities present therein. Of late, researchers have conjoined soft computing tools with the quantum computing paradigm, which is inspired by the principles of quantum mechanics. The inherent features of quantum computing like superposition, coherence, decoherence, entanglement, and measurement, have resulted in quantum/quantum-inspired intelligent systems, which are found to yield more robust and efficient solutions to real-life problems. In addition, different quantum gates like the NOT gate, CNOT gate, Toffoli gate, and others also play essential roles in this computing paradigm. This special issue is intended to focus on evolving novel quantum/quantum-inspired soft computing-based intelligent algorithms, architectures, and systems for efficient data processing. The thematic background for the special issue include, but not limited to, the following: Quantum Inspired Soft Computing Architectures • Quantum Fuzzy Systems • Quantum Metaheuristics • Quantum Neural Network Architectures • Multilevel Quantum Intelligent Systems • Neutrosophic Quantum Systems • Quantum Inspired Federated Learning • Applications to Data Processing Information Processing and Analysis Image Processing and Pattern Recognition Signal Processing Information security, Network Security and Steganography Multimedia Information Processing and Retrieval Data Mining and Data Warehousing Intelligent Industrial Control and Monitoring Big Data and Big Data Analytics Mobile Computing Internet of Things Bitcoin and Blockchain Portfolio Management Social Network Analysis Guest editors: Dr. Siddhartha Bhattacharyya Dr. Debashis De Dr. Sergey Gorbachev Dr. Debanjan Konar Manuscript submission information: Important Dates ● Opens for submission: January 31, 2022 ● Deadline for paper submission: July 31, 2022 ● Final acceptance notification: December 31, 2022 Paper submissions for the special issue should follow the submission format and guidelines for regular papers and be submitted at All the papers will be peer-reviewed following Applied Soft Computing reviewing procedures. Guest editors will make an initial assessment of the suitability and scope of all submissions. Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, presentation, relevance, and contributions, as well as their suitability to the special issue. Each submission must contribute to “Quantum-Inspired Computing”. Papers that either lack originality, clarity in presentation, or fall outside the scope of the special issue will be desk-rejected and will not be sent for review. Authors should select "VSI: Quantum-Inspired Computing" when they reach the "Article Type" step in the submission process. The submitted papers must propose original research that has not been published nor is currently under review in other venues.
