Call For Papers

“Data is the new oil” is just one of the sayings that describe the importance of data for today´s society. We have witnessed a rapid development of methods to analyze such data; starting with Statistics in the early 18th century, followed by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and finally leading to Data Science incorporating classical methodologies for data analysis, advanced data storage, visualization, and new programming paradigms. Many users in business-related areas, such as finance, marketing and operations; as well as in various other fields, such as astronomy, health, security, to name just a few, got aware of the respective potential and need data-driven solutions for their problems.

In parallel, techniques for soft computing lately received increasing attention inspired by recent developments, such as Deep Learning, the recurrence of Artificial Intelligence, and new programming paradigms from Evolutionary Computation, among others.

This special issue aims to stimulate a scientific discussion on the potential of soft computing approaches for data driven solutions, providing a platform for top-level publications showing how Applied Soft Computing can be used for Business Analytics.


Topics relevant for this special issue include, but are not limited to:

Business Analytics - Methods:

Dimensionality Reduction, Feature Extraction, and Feature Selection
Supervised, Semi-Supervised, and Unsupervised Methods
Statistical Learning Theory
Online Learning, Data Stream Mining, and Dynamic Data Mining
