Cancun, Mexico,  June 18-21, 2007

IFSA 2007 World Congress


Call for papers


Main theme of the Congress:


Theory and Applications of Fuzzy Logic and Soft Computing


The World Congress will consist of papers describing research work that deals with Computational Intelligence (CI) methodologies for the development of hybrid intelligent systems. CI methodologies at the moment include (at least) Fuzzy Logic, Neural Networks, Genetic Algorithms, Intelligent Agents, and Chaos Theory. The use of intelligent techniques, like neural networks, fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms, for real-world problems is now widely accepted. However, still the performance of any of these techniques can be improved, in many situations, by using them in conjunction with other techniques. For example, genetic algorithms can be used to optimize the design of a neural network for time series prediction, or fuzzy logic can be used to combine the information from expert neural modules, just to mention two cases. Also, mathematical methods, like the ones from Chaos and Fractal Theory, can be used in conjunction with intelligent techniques to improve the performance of hybrid systems for real-world applications. The international conference will consist of papers addressing these hybrid approaches and similar ones, either theoretically or for real-world applications. Also, distinguished internationally recognized invited speakers will give lectures on the main areas of CI. The conference is intended primarily for researchers and graduate students working on these research areas.


Significantly revised and extended versions of a select set of papers from the conference will be invited for a "fast track" submission to the Applied Soft Computing Journal

Elsevier Science



Also for the International Journal of Intelligent Systems of Wiley, a Special Issue of selected and extended papers on “Hybrid Intelligent Systems” will be prepared after the congress.

Wiley InterScience
