Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Application of Fuzzy Systems and Soft Computing (ICAFS-2012)
The Tenth International Conference on Application of Fuzzy Systems and Soft Computing aims at the development of Soft Computing and its Application is the 10th of its kind. The First Conference took place in 1994 in Tabriz (Iran), the second – in 1996 in Siegen (Germany), the third one in 1998 in Wiesbaden (Germany), the fourth – in 2000 in Siegen (Germany); the fifth conference took place in 2002 in Milan (Italy), the sixth – in 2004 in Barcelona (Spain), the seventh conference in 2006 in Siegen (Germany), the eighth – in 2008 in Helsinki (Finland), and the 9th – in Prague (Czech Republic).
Currently, the significant increase can be noticed in the number of consumer products, industrial systems, multimedia systems etc. with high level of MIQ based on Soft Computing and, especially, Fuzzy Logic. Soft Computing technology which represents the combination of emerging technologies such as Fuzzy Logic, Probabilistic Reasoning, Neural Networks, Evolutionary Computing and Chaos Theory is widely used in practice with hybrid intelligent systems. Recently, Soft Computing theory and technology are extensively used in the realm of decision analysis.
We are proud to have the honor of presenting this conference for the tenth time. As a result, we hope to be able to promote further researches in the above mentioned fields. Furthermore, this conference is to give students the opportunity to become familiar with these subject matters.
We would like to thank everybody who participated in the preparation and presentation of this conference. We hope to be able to welcome all participants in the year 2014 for the 11th ICAFS’2014 Conference.
