Call for Papers: Special Issue on Real Life Applications of Fuzzy Logic, Advances in Fuzzy Systems
Web site: http://www.hindawi.com/journals/afs/si/537295/cfp/
The objective of this special issue is to explore the advances of fuzzy logic in a large number of real life applications and commercial products in a variety of fields. Although fuzzy logic has applications in a number of different areas, it is not yet known to nonfuzzy people how it can be applied in different products that are available in the market. For nonfuzzy people, the word “fuzzy” is still fuzzy. It is important that nonfuzzy people know where fuzzy logic can be used.
We invite authors to submit original research articles as well as review articles that provide insight in applications where fuzzy logic can be used. It is known that fuzzy logic is used in automobiles, but it is very much less known how, where, and in what car function fuzzy logic is being used. The issue is expected to include applications from simple products like cameras, air conditioners, and microwave ovens to sophisticated applications like cars, helicopters, bullet trains, and health monitors.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
-- Applications of fuzzy logic in automobiles
-- Applications of fuzzy logic in defense and security
-- Applications of fuzzy logic in medicine and biomedical fields
-- Applications of fuzzy logic in Internet and computer security
-- Applications of fuzzy logic in consumer electronics
-- Applications of fuzzy logic in decision making (law, business, etc.)
Before submission, authors should carefully read over the journal's author guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/afs/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal manuscript tracking system at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
