Call for papers: "Applications of Hybrid Bio Inspired Algorithms"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Computational Intelligence Studies.

The aim of the special issue will be to highlight the latest advances, problems and challenges and to present the latest research results in the field of hybrid bio inspired systems with a link to scientific research and its practical implementation. Hybrid bio inspired systems are those systems where technology is in symbiosis with living systems. The idea of bio inspired computing has also been to search for parallels between natural and computational systems and to propose a solution found by nature in computing problems. More recently, hybrid approach is being efficiently and effectively used to solve some real world problems. Hence, hybrid bio inspired algorithms are playing a pivotal role in finding the optimal desired way to solve extremely dynamic, difficult, and robust problems. They are becoming popular due to their capabilities in handling many real world complex problems, involving imprecision, uncertainty and vagueness, and high-dimensionality.

In the past few decades there has been an interesting rise in the application of hybrid bio inspired algorithms. The primary objective of this special issue will be to bring forward thorough, in-depth, and well-focused development in the field of hybrid bio inspired algorithms which include integration of neural networks, expert system, fuzzy system, global optimisation algorithms with each other, different learning paradigms, knowledge based neural networks, hybrid optimisation techniques, intelligent agent based integrations, hybridisation of soft computing with machine learning techniques, etc.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Recent Advances and Applications in Computer Engineering (RAACE2017), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

  • Pure and applied mathematics
  • Extended tools for fuzzy and similarity based reasoning
  • Case-based reasoning
  • Virtual reality and multimedia processing
  • Natural language processing
