HIS 2008 - First Call for Papers

Technical University of Catalonia, Spain

Hybridization of intelligent systems is a promising research field of modern artificial/computational intelligence concerned with the development of the next generation of intelligent systems. A fundamental stimulus to the investigations of Hybrid Intelligent Systems (HIS) is the awareness in the academic communities that combined approaches will be necessary if the remaining tough problems in artificial/computational intelligence are to be solved. Recently, Hybrid Intelligent Systems are getting popular due to their capabilities in handling several real world complexities involving imprecision, uncertainty and vagueness. HIS'07 builds on the success of last year's. HIS'07 was held during September 17-19, 2007, Kaiserslautern - Germanyand attracted participants from several countries.

HIS'08 is the Eighth International conference that brings together researchers, developers, practitioners, and users of soft computing, computational intelligence, agents, logic programming, and several other intelligent computing techniques. The aim of HIS'08 is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange research ideas in this field.

HIS'08 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that demonstrate current research using soft computing, computational intelligence and other intelligent computing techniques and their applications in science, technology, business and commerce.

HIS'08 will focus on the following themes:

  • Hybrid Intelligent Systems: Architectures and Applications
  • Soft Computing for Image and Signal Processing
  • Intelligent Internet Modeling, Communication and Networking
  • Intelligent Data mining
  • Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
  • Intelligent Business Information Systems
  • Soft Computing for Control and Automation
  • Multi Agent Systems and Applications
  • Special topics

(See the full list)

Submitted papers should be original and contain contributions of theoretical, experimental or application nature, or be unique experience reports. Papers must be submitted no later than June 15th, 2008 and electronic submission in PDF is required. The page limit for a full-length paper is 6 pages. Short papers describing novel research visions, work-in-progress or less mature results are also welcome, with the limit of 4 pages. All submissions should be in the IEEE 8.5 two-column format. Papers should contain up to 5 keywords. Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness, and will be reviewed by at least three independent reviewers.

Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Selected papers presented at the conference will be considered for publication in special issues of several international Journals.

The HIS'08 Program Committee will select two winners for the Best Paper Award (all regular papers are eligible) and two winners for the Best Student Paper Award (to be eligible, the student must be the sole author of the paper or the first author and primary contributor). A cover letter to the General Chair/Program Chair must identify the paper as a candidate for this competition at the time of submission. The award winners (both regular and student paper) will each be presented with an award certificate and a payment of 200 Euros, and an extended version of the award-winning papers will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Hybrid Intelligent Systems (IJHIS).

It is assumed that all accepted manuscripts would be presented at the conference. All accepted papers must be accompanied by a full paid registration to appear in the proceedings. All full papers are to be submitted in PDF electronically via the web site.

Best paper awards

Two best paper awards are sponsored by European Neural Networks Society. Best papers will be selected by a committee comprising of the program committee chairs and other members.
