REMINDER: CALL FOR PAPERS - WSC10 SPECIAL SESSION
"Applications of Soft Computing in Design"
The deadline for submission to this session is on 30 June 2005
10th Online World Conference of Soft Computing (WSC10)
September 19th - October 7th, 2005 - On The World Wide Web
Soft Computing approaches have been utilised in a wide range of design applications. Evolutionary Computing forms an ideal platform to efficiently optimize design solution spaces and can be successfully integrated with complex design domains. Agent based technologies are used not only to take on repetitive design tasks but also to provide design preference negotiation. Fuzzy system modelling provides an efficient tool to approximate qualitativeness in design. More recently Interactive evolutionary computing based design optimisation gains popularity in design activities where qualitative aspects of the design at hand demand human-computer interaction. The flexibility of these techniques has promoted their refinement, and experimentation with hybridisation has also been conducted.
We seek original papers on applications of soft computing techniques to complex design problems, as well as on new developments in these techniques to solve these problems.
In the context of this session the term design constitutes a generic one, where soft computing technologies are applied to design problems some of which may include but are not limited to: engineering design, artistic design, system design, industrial design, and layout design. The special session seeks to bring a diverse group of soft computing practitioners together in order to provide an ideal platform for exchange of discussion on the recent research developments related to this field. It is hoped that the session will provide a greater awareness of the potential and possible areas of application that are becoming apparent across various design sectors.
Significantly revised and enhanced versions of selected papers of the conference will also be invited for a "fast track" submission for the Applied Soft Computing Journal.
