Pattern recognition and analysis have a wide range of applications in science, engineering, medical technology, diagnosis, security systems and many other fields. Intelligent techniques are also becoming popular and finding application in this emerging field because of their advantages over traditional mathematical and statistical techniques.
This special issue therefore aims to solicit original research contributions exploring intelligent techniques, hybridisation with traditional techniques and their synergies which enhance pattern recognition and analysis and their applications.
The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 11th International Conference on Cybernetic Intelligent Systems (organised by the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland Chapter of the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society) held at University of Limerick, Ireland during 23-24 August, 2012, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
Suitable topics include but are not limited to the following methods applied to pattern recognition and analysis:
- Fuzzy logic techniques
- Neural network techniques
- Evolutionary computing techniques
- Hybrid techniques
- Computational intelligence
Submission of papers: 30 March, 2013
