Special Issue Call for Papers:


This special section attempts to create a platform to foster new ideas and technical insights in the design and analysis of emerging intelligent computing systems and their scientific, engineering, and commercial applications. In particular, we would like to focus on sustaining facile solutions using supervised machine learning, artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms, fuzzy systems, natural language processing, smart systems, and collaborative intelligence. We invite submissions of regular papers with unpublished original results and, by invitation, the revised and extended version of the papers presented in the High-Performance Computing Architectures (HPCA) Track at the 17th International Conference on Information Technology: New Generation (ITNG) (


The topics of interest are:

  • Artificial neural networks, Fuzzy systems, Genetic algorithms
  • Machine learning and data systems, Intelligent computing system architectures
  • Intelligent system natural language processing, Collaborative intelligence
  • Glow worm swarm intelligence, Intelligent interfaces and hybrid systems
  • Soft computing approach, Network approaches to big data science
  • Bio-inspired intelligent computing, Cyber intelligent computation systems
  • Intelligent power management schemes, Intelligence for security
  • Intelligent systems for environment applications, Intelligent transportation
  • Smart internet of things, Evolutionary computation and data science
