Scope of the workshop
Soft computing is a consortium of methodologies that works synergistically and provides, in one form or another, flexible information
processing capabilities for handling real life ambiguous situations. Its aim is to exploit the tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty,
approximate reasoning and partial truth in order to achieve tractability, robustness, low cost solutions, and close resemblance to human like
decision making. Fuzzy Logic, Rough Sets, Artificial Neural Networks and Evolutionary Algorithms are the principal components of soft
computing paradigm. The relevance of soft computing research in pattern recognition, machine learning, image processing, data mining and
control problems, among others, along with different real life applications is evident worldwide.
Recently, due to the advent of internet technology, and the need for web intelligence, the research on soft web mining demanded
immediate attention for the development of future generation information technology (IT) systems and services. This includes topics like
data mining, natural language processing, E-commerce and Bioinformatics. Besides these, domains like intelligent manufacturing systems,
telecommunication, and engineering applications may also be considered as prospective candidates for soft computing applications.
The workshop is aimed to have an extensive discussion on the aforesaid techniques, applications, and recent research issues of soft
computing by the eminent experts in the field.
Number of seats is limited to 70. ♦
