  • Preface

    Theoretical, applicative and technological challenges, emanating from nowadaysindustrial, socioeconomic or environment needs, open every day new dilemmas tosolved and new challenges to defeat. Computational Intelligence (Neural Computation,Fuzzy Computation and Evolutionary Computation) and related topics have shown theirastounding potential in overcoming the above-mentioned needs. It is a fact and at thesame time a great pleasure to notice that the ever-increasing interest of both confirmedand young researchers on this relatively juvenile science, upholds a reach multidisci-plinary synergy between a large variety of scientific communities making conceivablea forthcoming emergence of viable solutions to these real-world complex challenges.

    Since its first edition in 2009, the purpose of International Joint Conference on Com-putational Intelligence (IJCCI) is to bring together researchers, engineers and practi-tioners in computational technologies, especially those related to the areas of fuzzycomputation, evolutionary computation and neural computation. IJCCI is composedof three co-located conferences, each one specialized in one of the aforementioned -knowledge areas. Namely:

    International Conference on Evolutionary Computation Theory and Applications(ECTA)

    International Conference on Fuzzy Computation Theory and Applications (FCTA) International Conference on Neural Computation Theory and Applications (NCTA)

    Their aim is to provide major forums for scientists, engineers and practitioners inter-ested in the study, analysis, design and application of these techniques to all fields ofhuman activity.

    In ECTA modeling and implementation of bioinspired systems namely on the evo-lutionary premises, both theoretically and in a broad range of application fields, is thecentral scope. Considered a subfield of computational intelligence focused on combina-torial optimization problems, evolutionary computation is associated with systems thatuse computational models of evolutionary processes as the key elements in design andimplementation, i.e. computational techniques which are inspired by the evolution ofbiological life in the natural world. A number of evolutionary computational modelshave been proposed, including evolutionary algorithms, genetic algorithms, evolutionstrategies, evolutionary programming, swarm optimization and artificial life.

  • VI Preface

    In FCTA, modeling and implementation of fuzzy systems, in a broad range of fieldsis the main concern. Fuzzy computation is a field that encompasses the theory and ap-plication of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic to the solution of information processing, systemanalysis and decision problems. Bolstered by information technology developments,the extraordinary growth of fuzzy computation in recent years has led to major ap-plications in fields ranging from medical diagnosis and automated learning to imageunderstanding and systems control.

    NCTA is focused on modeling and implementation of artificial neural networks com-puting architectures. Neural computation and artificial neural networks have seen anexplosion of interest over the last few years, and are being successfully applied acrossan extraordinary range of problem domains, in areas as diverse as finance, medicine,engineering, geology and physics, in problems of prediction, classification decision orcontrol. Several architectures, learning strategies and algorithms have been introducedin this highly dynamic field in the last couple of decades.

    The present book includes extended and revised versions of a set of selected papersfrom the Third International Joint Conference on Computational Intelligence (IJCCI2011), held in Paris, France, from 24 to 26 October, 2011.

    IJCCI 2011 received 283 paper submissions from 59 countries in all continents. Toevaluate each submission, a double blind paper review was performed by the ProgramCommittee. After a stringent selection process, 35 papers were accepted to be publishedand presented as full papers, i.e. completed work, 61 papers reflecting work-in-progressor position papers were accepted for short presentation, and another 57 contributionswere accepted for poster presentation. These numbers, leading to a full-paper accep-tance of about 12% and a total oral paper presentations acceptance ratio close to 34%,show the high quality forum for the present and next editions of this conference. Thisbook includes revised and extended versions of a strict selection of the best papers pre-sented at the conference.

    Furthermore, IJCCI 2011 included six plenary keynote lectures given by QiangfuZhao, Witold Pedrycz, Didier Dubois, Marco A. Montes de Oca, Plamen Angelov andMichel Verleysen. We would like to express our appreciation to all of them and inparticular to those who took the time to contribute with a paper to this book.

    On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, we would like to thank all par-ticipants. First of all to the authors, whose quality work is the essence of the conference,and to the members of the Program Committee, who helped us with their expertise anddiligence in reviewing the papers. As we all know, producing a post-conference book,within the high technical level exigency, requires the effort of many individuals. Wewish to thank also all the members of our Organizing Committee, whose work andcommitment were invaluable.
