New Trends in Soft Computing for Industrial and Environmental Application


Soft computing represents a collection or set of computational techniques in machine learning, computer science and some engineering disciplines, which investigate, simulate, and analyze very complex issues and phenomena. This special issue is mainly focus on its industrial and environmental applications.

They provide us with the opportunity to use both, our knowledge, and raw data to solve complex problems in a more interesting and promising way. This multidisciplinary research field is in continuous expansion in the artificial intelligence research community.
NEURCOMPUTING- SOCO 2017 special issue provides an interesting opportunity to present and discuss the latest theoretical advances and real world applications related to industrial and environmental fields.

The list of possible topics includes, but is not limited to, the use of Soft computing techniques and their combination, including always topics under the umbrella of neurocomputing (, this is neurocomputing theory, practice and applications (i.e. Neural Networks and Learning Systems (and related areas), where up-to-date deep neural networks and machine learning results are particularly welcome) and some others of the following topics:
• Evolutionary Computing
• Neuro Computing
• Probabilistic Computing
• Immunological Computing
• Hybrid Methods
• Causal Models
• Case-based Reasoning
• Chaos Theory Fuzzy Computing
• Intelligent Agents and Agent Theory
• Interactive Computational Models

The application fields of interest cover, but are not limited to:
• Decision Support
• Process and System Control
• System Identification and Modelling
• Optimization
• Signal or Image Processing
• Vision or Pattern Recognition
• Condition Monitoring
