THE RECENT SPECIAL ISSUES OF JOURNAL ENGINEERING LETTERS

Special issue on "Hybrid Intelligent Systems using Soft Computing Techniques"

Special Issue ˇ§Hybrid Intelligent Systems using Soft Computing Techniques ˇ¨

Guest Editors: Prof. Dr. Oscar Castillo and Prof. Dr. Patricia Melin Description

This Special Issue will consist of papers that integrate different Soft Computing (SC) methodologies for the development of hybrid intelligent systems for modeling, simulation and control of non-linear dynamical systems. SC methodologies at the moment include (at least) Neural Networks, Fuzzy Logic, Genetic Algorithms and Chaos Theory. Each of these methodologies has advantages and disadvantages and many problems have been solved, by using one of these methodologies. However, many real-world complex industrial problems require the integration of several of these methodologies to really achieve the efficiency and accuracy needed in practice. In this Special Issue, an overview of SC methodologies, and their applications to modeling, simulation and control, will be given in an introductory paper by the Guest Editors. Then, detailed methods for integrating the different SC methodologies in solving real-world problems will be given in the papers by the other authors in the Special Issue. The Special Issue will include applications on the following areas: Robotic Dynamic Systems, Control of Non-linear Plants, Manufacturing Systems, and Time Series Prediction.

Topics of interest (not limited to)

1. Successful new applications to real-world problems, related to control, of existing soft computing techniques that are found to achieve better results than conventional techniques. In this case, special attention should be given to the metrics used to compare SC techniques with conventional ones.

2. Developments of innovative hybrid methods combining SC techniques and conventional techniques to solve problems related to controlling non-linear dynamical systems. In this case, the problems to be considered in these papers may not be as complex as the ones in the previous point, but the authors have to explain very carefully how their proposed method could be used, in the future, to solve real-world problems.

3. Papers considering original research on new SC techniques are also welcome, but the authors would have to make a detailed description of how their proposed approach is compared with other related techniques.

Format and Submission Procedure

Papers and must be sent by email, by the prospective authors, to the Guest Editors. The papers and abstracts must be sent as a PDF or word attachment with their email message. The papers will then be distributed to the Reviewers for evaluation according to their originality, technical soundness, writing, etc. (At least three reviewers per paper). Based on the evaluations by the reviewers, the Guest Editors will select the Best papers for the Special Issue. Notifications of acceptance or rejection will then be sent to the authors by email. The authors of accepted papers would then be asked to send their final papers in the appropriate format and also giving careful consideration to the comments and suggestions made by the reviewers. After receiving all of the accepted papers in their final form, the Special Issue will be formed by the Guest Editors and will be sent to the Editor in Chief of the Journal for publication.

IJCS: Special issue on "Wavelets and its applications towards Signal Processing"

Wavelets provide a unifying framework for decomposing images, volumes, and time series data into their elementary constituents across scale. Although a relatively recent construct, wavelets have become the tool of choice for engineers, physicists, and mathematicians, leading to efficient solutions in time and space frequency analysis problems. The wavelet transform, multiresolution analysis, and space-frequency approaches are now common tools used in image and signal processing. Promising practical results in imaging including industrial applications have been obtained. The application of wavelet theory concepts to this area has made possible significant advances in the usage of these imaging modalities to different applications.

This special issue aims at providing an opportunity for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of wavelet in signal/image processing to meet and discuss the advances and latest developments in this exciting area. All papers submitted to this issue will be peer evaluated by two independent reviewers.

The areas are:

  • Wavelet based Signal Image Compression
  • A Wavelet-based Analysis of Fractal Image Compression
  • Wavelet-based denoising
  • Wavelet texture analysis and segmentation
  • Wavelets based pattern recognition and matching
  • Wavelet based neural networks
  • Wavelet footprints and its applications towards signal processing
  • Wavelets in medical signal processing
  • Wavelet Frames and over-complete representations
  • Gabor transforms and time space frequency localization

(3) Web Engineering

Web engineering has provided several important research and practical results especially during the last decade. However, very few of them have transferred to real-life projects. Engineers are unable to study all these results, since it is a time consuming task, difficult to be accomplished in the strict timeline of a project. As more research results come up every year, they constitute a very complex information space that itself need to be engineered, in order to be provided to developers in a meaningful and comprehensive way. The World Wide Web and its associated technologies have become a major implementation and delivery platform for a large variety of applications, ranging from simple institutional information websites to sophisticated supply-chain management systems, financial applications, e-government, distance learning, and entertainment, among others. Such applications, in addition to their intrinsic functionality, also exhibit the more complex behavior of distributed applications.


Recently, there have been some advances towards re-framing the development - both design and implementation - of Web applications as a disciplined and systematic endeavor. However, the vast majority of existing applications have been developed in an ad-hoc way, leading to problems of maintainability, quality and reliability. Web applications are software artifacts, and as such can benefit by making use of established practices stemming from several related disciplines such as Software Engineering, Hypermedia, Information Systems and HCI, enabling creation, management and reuse of structures of the information space as well as enhancing the end user experience. In addition, it has its own characteristics which must be addressed, such as a varied user population, very short development turnaround times, diverse runtime environments, accessibility through multiple devices, etc.


Web Engineering addresses these issues and focuses on systematic, disciplined and quantifiable approaches towards the cost-effective development and evolution of high-quality, ubiquitously usable Web-based systems and applications.
The Special Issue of Engineering Letters on Web Engineering covers processes, methodologies, system design, architectures, lifecycle and management of large Web-based systems, as well as education and research issues. In addition, illustrative case studies and best practices showing successful employment of Web Engineering techniques and principles are also welcome.
Topics include, but not limited to:

  • Web application development processes and methodologies
  • Collaborative Web application development
  • Design models and methods
  • Hypertext models and their application on the Web
  • OO technology and component-based Web engineering
  • Federated and cross-organizational Web applications
  • Service-oriented Web application approaches
  • Web application frameworks and architectures
  • Peer-to-Peer approaches for Web application architectures
  • Reuse and integration
  • Systematic reuse of Web services
  • Use and integration of meta-data in Web applications
  • Web design patterns and pattern mining
  • Managing Web application design, evolution and maintenance
  • Web personalization
  • Adaptive Web applications
  • Web metrics, quality measures and evaluation
  • Web application usability
  • Testing automation, methods and tools for Web applications
  • Web application deployment
  • Performance modeling, monitoring and evaluation
  • Development teams and Web project management
  • Legal obligations
  • Case studies
