CALL FOR PAPERS

Special Issue on Soft Computing Medical
Applications

in

International Journal of Intelligent Computing in
Medical Sciences and Image Processing (IC
-
MED)


Soft Computing (SC), as opposed to hard computing, is a term
used to refer to computin
g that is tolerant of imprecise
information, partial truth and uncertainty. Key SC technologies
include neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary algorithms
,

swarm intelligence,

probabilistic reasoning, knowledge based
systems and other heuristic

learning

and search algorithms which
are paradigms for mimicking human

intelligence and smart
optimization mechanisms observed in the nature.

The capability
of these techniques to process incomplete information and to
model very complex systems makes them a useful

tool in different
scient
ific areas. T
his special issue
is focused
mainly in medical
applications.


The topics may include, but are not limited to

the following
:



Neural networks



Fuzzy logic



Swarm Intelligence



Genetic Algorithm



Pattern Recognition



Neural F
uzzy Systems



Medical Image Processing
