Soft Computing Methods for Modern Applications (SOFTCOMP)
@WETICE2023, Paris, France, December 14-16, 2023

Overview

The widespread of the internet has given further opportunities for providing innovative services and applications such as Sharing economy Platforms, Metaverse, and Cryptocurrency, to cite a few. However, such applications are often accompanied by a high complexity, and the number of standards, to which an application must follow, is rapidly increasing. Representing related problems as optimization problems will often not find an exact analytical solution anymore, and the need for advanced heuristic techniques becomes prevalent. Heuristic techniques provide a wealth of methods to handle tasks in complex application domains. Among such techniques we can find evolutionary computation, tabu search, simulated annealing, as well as many probabilistic, hybrid and ensemble approaches.

This workshop will focus on soft computing methods to tangent the needs of modern applications. It is supposed to bring together researchers from different communities with the similar need, and to provide a base for scientific exchange of research ideas.

The scope of this track covers the soft computing and related techniques, interactions between several soft computing techniques, and their applications:

  • Ant Colony
  • Chaos Theory
  • Evolutionary Computing
  • Fuzzy Computing
  • Hybrid Methods
  • Immunological Computing
  • Morphic Computing
  • Neuro Computing
  • Particle Swarm
  • Probabilistic Computing
  • Rough Sets


The application areas of interest include but are not limited to applications of soft computing to:

  • Agricultural Machinery and Produce
  • Autonomous Reasoning
  • Bio-inspired Systems
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Consumer Electronics
  • Data Mining
  • Data Visualization
  • Decision Support
  • Engineering Design Optimisation
  • Fault Diagnosis
  • Human-Machine Interface
